Local speller takes top spot

Most people have never heard the word “qiviut,” let alone are able to spell it correctly. It refers to the luxuriously soft underwool of the musk ox. Local speller Sonja Jacobsen sailed through that word, along with words like crepuscular, phloem, and sybaritic, to take the state title in the highest division at the Oregon State Spelling Bee in Salem Sept. 2.

    Guest Column: We must act to prevent wildfires

    Oregonians have faced some of the worst fires in our state’s history this year. We have watched in shock as every day comes with more smoke and reports of new fires. With arrival of the first fall rains, we can and should turn our attention to the recovery efforts after the fires.

    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?

    Letter to the Editor: Bad outweighs good

    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.

    Letter to the Editor: Compassion needed

    To the editor: In the Chronicle’s Aug. 22nd Crosstalk, one of the authors condemned the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “far left” organization for naming the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Research Council as “hate groups.”
