Editorial cartoons from July 26, 2014
To the editor: This is an open letter to our mayor and city council. I would like to see a feasibility study on the cost-benefit of mothballing Wicks Reservoir water treatment plant. I think the savings would be substantial. At present, our town isn’t using more than 6.5 million gallons per day, even during our driest, hottest days. That is why revenue projections aren’t being met, thus the yearly increases in our water rates.
To the editor: I wrote this a year ago and it’s time to print it. The Dalles is the only town I have ever heard of that doesn’t want to allow yard sale signs. I think their rules are too anal. Some have said people who don’t pick up their signs after their sale should be fined. Why do we pay city employees to pick up signs during people’s sales, when they could pick them up afterward and issue a citation? That would generate money for the city.
To the editor: I have lived in the Columbia River Gorgeous for almost five decades now. From the beginning I have been impressed with the quality of the medical personnel here. God has truly blessed this community with people who have an excellent vision of what needs to be done for our citizens to provide the best health care possible. With very few exceptions I have found these people to be professional, knowledgeable and compassionate.
PORTLAND (AP) — An Oregon woman says 86 members of her family have been disenrolled from an American Indian tribe that operates the state’s largest tribal casino, as leaders review the tribe’s rolls and enforce new membership requirements.
The City of The Dalles is seeking people interested in volunteering to serve on the city’s planning commission, urban renewal advisory committee, urban renewal budget committee and city budget committee.
DENVER (AP) — Pot may be legal in some states — but the neighbors don't have to like it.

The Associated Press Today is Sunday, July 27, the 208th day of 2014. There are 157 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee voted 27-11 to adopt the first of three articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, charging he had personally engaged in a course of conduct designed to obstruct justice in the Watergate case. (In the days that followed, the Committee also adopted articles accusing Nixon of abuse of power and contempt of Congress.)
Looking back on July 27 in Wasco County, from the archives of The Dalles Chronicle.
Beware of the Summer Slide! Once upon a time, in the scorching days of July and August, kids would have to pour water on the scorching hot playground slide to avoid burns. Luckily, kids today have colorful, cooler, plastic slides, but kids today need to be wary of a different kind of “summer slide.”

My first camera was a simple, manual camera with a normal view, 55mm lens. It was cheap. I used it to photograph anything and everything. For a time I stuck with black and white film, and felt myself an artist. This bicycle is a good example of my work from ...
By the time I finished playing with this photograph, it bore such little resemblance to reality I decided to name it "Corporate Ladders" after that mythical instrument by which one is said to, by virtue of great effort and talent, improve one's career. Photo copyright Mark B. Gibson
I've been working recently on "A Rancher's Life," an ongoing series in the Chronicle, and as I listened to the bellowing cattle at a Maupin area ranch I was reminded of the very first roll of film I ever shot and developed. It was eighth grade, I was taking an ...
I remember a newspaper cartoon I saw years ago, showing a "war correspondent" type photojournalist, rough and careworn, wearing a photo vest and holding out a tiny, goofy-looking cell phone. It was funny, the idea that someone with a cell phone could capture hard breaking news. I had it on ...
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 ...
