Editorial cartoons from July 31, 2014.
To the editor: I just finished reading a book written by a man who documented negative things we as a nation did to Israel. Every time we were negative, we had a bad weather issue: Katrina and Superstorm Sandy are only two of many. This makes me wonder about the million-plus acres of fires we are experiencing after we are rejoicing over pot issues and same-sex marriages.
To the editor: I have been pondering a lot of questions. How can wolves be endangered when there are at least tens of thousands in existence? They’re not in my backyard (yet) so does that mean they’re endangered? Why would wolves maim so many sheep in the process of killing what they need to eat and what does wolf taste like anyway?
John Babikian, foreign partner of James Martin, The Dalles wine-in-a-glass guy, settled out-of-court this month for $3,730,000 with the SEC (Securities & Exchange Commission). The Martin/Babikian partnership operated from the city-owned Sunshine Mill property, at 901 E. 2nd Street, The Dalles, property Martin has the option to buy once his substantial city loans are repaid.
To the editor: As the Coordinator for The Dalles Main Street Program, I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for all the support we received for the Jammin’ July Street Fest earlier this month. It is incredible when an event such as this comes together through the hard work of many volunteers and support from local businesses, organizations, and individuals. Thank you very much!
If last week’s debate between incumbent Gov. John Kitzhaber and challenger Dennis Richardson was any indication, we may be headed into a general election campaign that misses the forest as it concentrates on the trees.

Dear Mary: I sure hope you can help me. I’m at the end of my rope with the floor of our fiberglass shower. It’s stained and gross. I’ve wasted a lot of money on fiberglass cleaners but nothing works. I cannot afford to replace the shower, which is in excellent functional condition. Any suggestions? — Roy M., Utah
DEAR DOCTOR K: I cook with kosher salt, which doesn’t contain iodine. Am I getting enough iodine in my diet? Can I get iodine from other foods?
