Looking back on Oct. 19, from the archives of The Dalles Chronicle.

Letter to the editor: Focus on future

To the editor: Re-elect a really creative and dedicated Wasco County commissioner. With eyes focused on the future, Rod Runyon has made memorandums more easily available through the county website.

Letter to the editor: Fix city council

To the editor: There is something wrong within our city government. Rather than progress and improvement, we seem to be steadily falling apart. What little construction growth there may be is consistently thwarted by excessive fees and inconsistent demands, which cause citizens to put projects on hold until something more sensible makes progress possible. Water and sewer rates are completely out of hand. Residential rates for water and sewer in Hermiston is $39.13. Ours is nearly triple at $104.72 per month.

Letter to the editor: Check the facts

To the editor: It astounds me that people will write letters to criticize others when it is obvious they have not checked the facts! Mr. George Clark did this!

Letter to the editor: New opportunity

To the editor: My wife and I moved to The Dalles just over a year ago from a small town in Washington where we had lived for over 25 years.

Letter to the editor: Ostrye for judge

To the editor: I would like to urge people to vote to retain Karen Ostrye as Circuit Court Judge in the upcoming election.

Letter to the editor: Time for Bailey

To the editor: During the 10 years I served on the Wasco County Court/Board of Commissioners I did not meet with my fellow commissioners outside regularly scheduled meetings nor did I travel throughout the county with either of them.

Letter to the editor: Runyon for vets

To the editor: Rod Runyon was a supporter of veterans long before it was “popular.”

Letter to the editor: Avoid conflict

To the editor: Picture the following scenario: District Attorney, Eric Nisley, a state employee, prepares an annual budget for his county department and county employees.
