To the editor: This week (August 9-15) is National Health Center Week, and the Gorge should be proud to have its own community health center — with sites in Hood River and The Dalles, serving members of Hood River, Wasco, Sherman, Skamania and Klickitat Counties. Like other federally-supported health centers, One Community Health (formerly known as La Clinica del Cariño) makes the costs of care affordable, with the quality of care as good as any one finds in private practices – and studies prove it.
To the editor: The Gorge Technology Alliance (GTA) works to promote the Columbia River Gorge as an excellent place to locate and operate businesses in the technology sector. Our beautiful region, including Wasco, Hood River, Sherman, Klickitat, and Skamania counties, is an attractive place for growing technology companies. The Gorge is home to multiple broadband and telecommunications services that provide the infrastructure diversity for tech companies to do their jobs, and some of the best recreation and scenery in the country for employees and their families to enjoy.
To the editor: If you have children in school or follow education in the news, you probably hear a lot about “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). And for good reason. People working in these industries typically earn twice the median wage ($30 per hour) than the average across other sectors ($16 per hour). Even more, one out of every nine jobs in Oregon is STEM-related — and that figure is growing. That is why providing quality STEM education for Oregon’s students is critical.
