The Dalles Standing up
To the editor:
Thanks so much, Kathy Ursprung, for your editorial regarding journalistic ethics, and especially that The Dalles Chronicle is willing to stand in the gap, when so much of our media is swayed by popular opinion and big money - and wanting us to follow without question.
For several weeks I’ve been thinking I’d write to say thanks for the great series of articles RaeLynn Ricarte is doing on cattle ranching. As a long-ago farm and ranch girl, it has been so refreshing to see quality feature stories on that vital part of our lives and nation.
All around us, daily emphasis is on bigger, better, faster technology, the latest new igadget. It gives me hope when school kids in urban schools can learn up close and personal about food production. Life would come to a screeching halt without it.
