    Letter to the Editor: Ask first

    To the editor: To the person who complained about the "unkempt graves" at IOOF. Have you visited regularly over the past several years? Have you noticed that things are looking much better? Do you know how big the budget is to run the cemetery, or how much water they have to keep everything green?

    To the editor: I totally agree with Mr. Paul Crowley’s letter to the editor (Sept. 14) in The Dalles Chronicle. I, too, believe that fireworks in the hands of the public, especially kids, is dangerous and unnecessary.
