Letter to the Editor: Keep rural values

— Hats off

To the editor:

Hats off to Stan Ashbrook’s letter with regards to Dallas, the little silky rooster in Dufur. I used to live in Dufur, in fact was just across the road from Stan’s place and would like to say that I loved every minute of every day living out there in the little rural community where agriculture and farming co-exist within the city limits of town. I now reside in Rufus of Sherman County where life is pretty much the same and every bit as enjoyable. Please remember: It’s not what you can do for Dufur, but what Dufur can do for you.

I have deep appreciation of “a different way of living” in our rural communities, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I hope the Dufur community can resolve the situation of Dallas in a positive manner for all concerned.
