Officers ‘take a load off’

The Dalles Police Department’s new load-bearing equipment vests represent an innovation that has been welcomed by officers. In October, the department obtained 19 of the new vests, which are designed to perform a relatively simple task: they redistribute gear from the hips of officers to their shoulders, relieving them of weight that causes health problems.

Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Be nice

    To the editor: What in the world has happened to respect, courtesy, and love of our fellow man?

    Letter to the Editor: Stand firm

    To the editor: I wanted to remind the Republicans of the tremendous job ahead of them; like fighting against the blockades that the Democrats are throwing in the face of everything President Trump is trying to accomplish. Please, continue to have the moral conviction to stand your ground when it comes time to repeal Obamacare.

    Letter to the Editor: Rally angst

    To the editor: I turned on the TV to the morning news on President’s Day and saw protesters in Portland gathering downtown with signs saying, “Not my President’s Day.” It made my blood boil.

    Letter to the Editor: Thank you

    To the editor: I would like to thank Mark Linebarger of the Baldwin Saloon for his kindness and empathy toward his help-staff on "Day without Immigrants."
