    Way of the world

    My children call me Mammy. It’s an Irish thing. I was in California visiting three of my grandchildren when I saw my 4-year-old grandson, “B,” having a bit of a tiff with his mother. She had let him have Lucky Charms cereal for breakfast. He, of course, had eaten all the marshmallow stars and none of the rest of the cereal and was asking for more. She said, not only would there be no more today, but there would not be anymore until he was old enough to eat everything in the bowl and drink his milk.

    ‘Mammy’ wins essay contest

    Widge Johnson of The Dalles decided to share a memorable moment in a grandparent essay contest because “this particular story still cracks me up.” Joan Silver, organizing the contest for the Mid-Columbia Senior Center, read Johnson’s entry, the first to be submitted, and knew instantly that it would be a tough act to follow.

Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Days of Culture

    To the editor: Days of Culture are an important part of Gilliam County. When the Cultural Coalition was not able to promote the Days of Culture 2016, our Gilliam County Development picked up the reins and made it happen!

    Letter To the Editor: Red, blue issue

    To the editor: I’m writing in response to the Crosstalk on Sept. 20, “Are red or blue states more livable.” I think the method of the two writers says as much as their specifics.

    Letter to the editor: Thanks city

    To the editor: I write this letter in amazement. The other day the city of The Dalles did something that damaged my driveway somewhat. In 32 years of living in The Dalles it never seemed necessary to engage with the city. It always seemed that if I did my thing that everything was okay.

    Letter to the editor: You will pay

    To the editor: Everyone agrees that M97 will provide $3 billion of new revenue each year for the state of Oregon. That is pretty much a given. The two issues most disagreed upon are where will the revenue be spent and who will pay the tax?
