Overcoming life’s hurdles

Special Olympics is far more than giving an intellectually disabled athlete the opportunity to win a medal; the program showcases the determination and strength of the human spirit.

    It’s that time of year again. It’s time for the Trailhead’s annual gift list for the person who loves the out-of-doors. This would include Nordic skiers, hikers, fishermen and hunters.

    Keeping star light bright

    Volunteers add a little extra shine to the local holiday season

    Every holiday season for the past 24 years, a 40-foot star has shone on the west end of The Dalles, illuminating the night sky for motorists and area residents alike. The Fun Group knows that few people are thinking about the logistics involved in keeping the star lit, and that’s the way they want it to be.

Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Value of federal dams

    To the editor: Tonight, citizens of The Dalles have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reaffirm the value of the Columbia and Snake federal dams, their associated energy infrastructure and the river system to the Northwest.

    Letter to the Editor: Can-do attitude

    To the editor: Donald Trump's surprise win for the presidency, and the continuing popularity of Bernie Sanders, seem to indicate that a new populist era is here in the United States. How do we channel the energy in a positive direction, at least locally?

    Letter to the Editor: Path forward

    To the editor: Providing affordable health care is a tough nut to crack. Republicans are quickly retreating from "Repeal and Replace" to a symbolic "Repeal" and an undefined "Transition" that may go on for years and leave much of Obamacare untouched.
