Letter to the Editor: Support survivors

To the editor: I am a survivor. There was the teenage neighbor boy when I was 5, the stranger who exposed himself to me when I was 8, the nice college boy who drove me home from a party, only to wake up with his penis choking me. I never told anyone about what happened to me except for the flasher, because he kind of looked like Glen Campbell and I thought it was funny. You can be sure if that nice college boy showed up on TV about to be appointed to an important position I would tell on him like I’m telling you now.

Letter to the Editor: How Walden votes

To the editor: How does Greg Walden vote on the environment? Every grade school child knows that man’s burning fossil fuels has raised the levels of carbon dioxide and other pollutants in our atmosphere such that the earth’s temperature is rising. Oregon’s congressmen and senators all know this too and are actively voicing their concerns and voting accordingly — all except Greg Walden.

Letter to the Editor: Jamie for Congress

To the editor: I would like to add my voice to the many supporters of Jamie Mcleod-Skinner for Congress. I had the opportunity to meet Jamie and take her on a tour of our family's farm and through part of the Substation Fire zone at the end of August. She took time out of her busy touring schedule to meet with a very small group of voters, in the interest of learning more about issues faced by agriculture and small businesses in Eastern Oregon.

Letter to the Editor: Celebrate children

To the editor: The proposed school bond is the smartest, fastest, and cheapest way to replace the current dysfunctional school buildings. Period. However it also has the added benefit of increasing jobs in The Dalles and enticing professionals that already work in The Dalles to live in The Dalles as well as encouraging new businesses to settle here.
