Letter to the editor: Insult to tribes

To the editor: As an addict of early American history and author of historical western novels, I’ve been researching past culture and lifestyles of the local Native American tribes and clans.

Letter to the editor: Have some pride

To the editor: What happened to The Dalles’ sense of pride? We are selling our parents’ home on East 11th Street. Even though it is for sale, we still water and mow the yard. With the extreme hot weather it is difficult, but not impossible. It only takes a small amount of time to weed and water.

Letter to the editor: Great turnout

To the editor: The first annual community worship service/free barbeque held at Sorosis Park as part of the Ft. Dalles Days activities exceeded my expectations. I had hoped for an attendance of 200, but was amazed that over 300 attended both activities.

Letter to the editor: More to issue

To the editor: The Chronicle reprinted a typical editorial cartoon illustrating the popular media bias against firearms. The cartoon, using an extremely over simplified view of statistics, followed the agenda so popular with those oft-labeled “Liberals.”

Because of the things I’ve witnessed on airplanes, in airports, taxis, subways and hotels, I’ve gone from being a passive passenger to a purpose-driven traveler.
