Editorial: Make your election letters count

Ready or not, we are back in the primary election season. Ballots will be going out around around the end of April and political letters are already flowing into the Chronicle editor’s inbox.

Letter to the editor: How many more?

To the editor: Just wondering how many more local downtown businesses will have to close before the city decides to take action? With nothing new coming in, I see a ghost town in our future.

Letter to the editor: Health burden

To the editor: Whereas my parents lived during and managed to survive through The Great Depression of the 1930s; my children will be (thanks be to this Great Depressing Obamacare program and its regulations to cut home health care by 14 percent over a four-year period) challenged with my survival when my body loses its functions and requires home care.

    It's late November, and as food banks struggle to fill the gap created by a $5 billion monthly reduction in food stamps across the nation, the financial sector continues to swell and pulse under the stimulating hand of an $85 billion monthly handout, with stock markets reaching record highs and ...

    Fall colors

    Leaves of a big leaf maple are brilliantly yellow along Mill Creek Road south of The Dalles, pictured here against the trunk of a ponderosa pine. Copyright Mark B. Gibson Big leaf maples are one of my favorite trees, with their, huge swooping buds in early spring, leafy umbrellas in ...

    A new "War on Poverty"

    Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives have passed a bill cutting billions of dollars in federal food assistance to the poor. As it is seems unlikely to become law, the cut is apparently meant as a policy statement: The Republican Party declares a new "War on Poverty." Specifically targeted ...

    Larger than life

    A pair of mating crane flies hangs from a leaf above Mill Creek just south of The Dalles Insects are wonderful fun to photograph, and a summer creek is a great place to find them. I was standing on the bank when these two crane flies flew by, landing on ...
