Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Thank you

    To the editor: I just wanted to thank the members of The Dalles Rifle and Pistol Club for taking the time to work with my Boy Scouts troop a few weeks ago.

    Letter to the Editor: Strike three

    To the editor: On February 10 at the Boardman town hall, Greg Walden was questioned about his opinions on immigration. Walden spoke about the need to secure our southern border. He suggested using alternative methods to Trump's much touted Great Wall. He referred to building the wall as "unnecessary and unfeasible.”

    Letter to the Editor: Sunshine value

    To the editor: I am writing to commend The Dalles Chronicle on its editorial concerning the Sunshine Mill and on the fiscal handling of properties in The Dalles; one in particular very dear to my heart, which is the Civic Auditorium.

    Letter to the Editor: Azure’s weeds

    To the editor: A serious misunderstanding is circulating concerning Azure Farms’ weed problem. It is that they would lose organic status on crops currently growing if the county was to make an application of synthetic pesticides. This is not true.
