Editorial: Farmers are essential to survival

Civilization began with agriculture, the ability of human society not only to grow food for a village but produce enough surplus to sell or trade with neighbors for goods or services that improved the quality of life. At no other time in recorded history has there been such a disconnect between the agriculture industry and civilization.

Opinion

    Letter to the Editor: Don’t push plan

    To the editor: The American Health Care Act (AHCA) now being pushed through Congress is bad for rural Oregon. Rep. Walden’s work in crafting and supporting this replacement to the ACA is disappointing.

    Letter to the Editor: Need for dental care

    To the editor: Every Oregonian deserves access to a professional dentist.

    Letter to the Editor: Where’s Walden?

    To the editor: I belong to one of many local progressive groups in the Gorge and we are concerned about what is going on in Washington, D.C. We have questions about the new health care bill and how that will affect all of us; we have questions about immigration policies that affect our neighbors, friends and employees; we have questions about women’s continued access to safe and quality health care; we have questions about global warming and the future of our planet. What we don’t have are answers from our congressional representative, Greg Walden.
