Letter to the editor: Climate support

To the editor: Recent letters in these pages have presented passionate back-and-forth regarding climate change. Passionate debate is healthy for our democracy. Climate change is not. Oregonians have the opportunity to support reasoned action in HB 1574, the Healthy Climate Bill. This sensible legislation is before the Oregon legislature in this short legislative session, and creates a practical and doable path to achieving the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions goals established by the State in 2007.

Commentary: Setting the record straight about wolves, ranching

It is a FACT wolves are predators and brutal ones at that. Are they “terrorists?” Do they terrorize? We can argue the adjective, noun or the verb, but there is no denying that wolves are vicious killers.
