“I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go. I will advise you and keep my eye on you. Do not be like the senseless horse and the mule whose movements must be controlled by bit and bridle. No. Don’t be anything like that, for the pain of the wicked is severe. But faithful love surrounds the one who trusts the Lord. You, who are righteous, rejoice in the Lord always and be glad! All you whose hearts are right, sing out in joy!” These verses from Psalm 32 lift me up and help me sustain an “attitude of gratitude” and confidence in the face of adversity.

To the editor: I read in this newspaper that the economy of Harney County has been stagnant for nearly 40 years. Ron Wyden has been a senator for half of that time. Wyden proudly celebrated his “landmark 750th town hall” this month in Wheeler County. Of the Harney County standoff he recently said: “I understand why rural Oregonians are so frustrated about this economy, but the next step from frustration is not to walk off a cliff, misled by some outsiders who seem willing to take the law into their own hands.January 26, 2016 12:37 p.m. read more..

To the editor: The marriage, divorce, remarriage and adultery issue is interesting. When information is given to men from the book of Genesis it is extremely important. The institution of marriage is introduced in Chapter Two. It reads: “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife.” Cleave? Impinge, cling, adhere.

To the editor: Neita Cecil’s story about building new schools (Chronicle 12/23) gives me great concern and poses many questions. She says there is a “wave of public interest.” Was there a poll taken that I missed? Was it Gallup or was it Pew? Were the people who live paycheck to paycheck polled? Did anyone suggest waiting until half the current bonds are paid off? I’m sure the people who fear losing their homes because of high property taxes are not breaking out their surfboards to ride that “wave of public interest.”January 13, 2016 3:36 p.m. read more..
To the editor: I found the December 31 editorial reprint from Albany, “Watch out for well-meaning laws,” to be pretty contentious in terms of whose interests it seems to represent. It had a strongly neoliberal or “pro-business” slant, warning working Oregonians of repercussions should they try to vote themselves better wages or sick leave. It tried to convince people that a clean-energy economy isn’t worth slightly higher gas prices or new paperwork. Costs and burdens to poor, helpless small businesses were repeatedly mentioned in vague terms. This made the tone of the article sound as if it was concocted by big-money groups.January 13, 2016 3:35 p.m. read more..

I’m a true believer and absolutely convinced the climate is changing…..just as it has constantly for the three or four billion years the earth has revolved around the sun (which, by the way, affects our climate much more dramatically than anything mere humans are capable of). So how ignorant is it to talk about climate change as something new? The Ice Age was just 10,000 years ago (a mere wink of an eye geologically speaking). And if that’s too remote for you, the Little Ice Age ended less than 200 years ago, and was preceded by an extended period of (drum roll here) global warming.January 7, 2016 2:22 p.m. read more..
