Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: GOP backdoor assault

    To the editor: Mr. Walden, at your recent town halls in the Gorge, we (your constituents) were loud and clear about our anger at the GOP’s attack on the environment, and our demand that you consider the importance of the health of the people.

    Letter to the Editor: Support incumbents

    To the editor: It is time to elect Columbia Gorge Community College board members. I am endorsing our current members, James (Doc) Willcox, Carmen Garcia, Charleen Cobb and Ernie Keller for re-election.

    Letter to the Editor: Complaints in reverse

    To the editor: To those writing letters to the editor calling audience members at Congressman Walden's town hall "bullies" and "rude": I would take your complaints more seriously if you had written letters castigating a candidate for president that was bragging about grabbing women by the genitals, or about a candidate that made fun of a disabled reporter he did not like by mimicking that reporter's disability.
