Proud Graduate

AMBER ASHLEY, above right, graduated from Family Dependency Court on Tuesday, April 7. Family Dependency Court is a program developed to help participants achieve total abstinence from substance abuse and to promote self-sufficiency and return the participant to the community as a productive and responsible citizen. The program is voluntary and a personal choice. One year ago Amber Ashley made the choice to get clean and be reunited with her daughter. She celebrated her graduation from the program with many friends and family members who attended to show their support for a job well done. Judge Janet L. Stauffer, left, presided.

Editorial: Background checks make sense

Requiring background checks for private purchases of guns in Oregon makes sense.

Letter to the editor: Cruelty is disgusting

To the editor: Details in The Chronicle of the senseless injury inflicted upon a helpless cat are deeply troubling. How anyone can view torturing an innocent, voiceless victim and then leaving it to die a slow, agonizing death is beyond my understanding. Such cruelty is disgusting, reprehensible and criminal.

Letter to the editor: Google article humor

To the editor: I must admit that I look forward to the occasional articles on Google that are published in The Chronicle. I find them humorous and always good for a laugh. In particular the statement from Scott Hege in regards to the $800,000 Google is paying out instead of taxes. Supposedly twice as much as anyone else is paying.
