I’m excited to introduce myself as the newest addition to the staff at The Dalles Chronicle. I grew up in Hillsboro as the second of three girls. I graduated from the University of Portland this past May with an English literature degree, nearly $30,000 in debt, and a desire to do work that I care about — all of which bring me here, to the Chronicle.
The magic of Christmas is in the giving of gifts as well as receiving them, and shopping at the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in The Dalles — or “St. Vinnie’s” — enables people to enjoy both benefits.

A gift shop near the eastern edge of The Dalles’ downtown business district might be a little bit off the beaten track, but for local shoppers it would be well worth it to search the store out.

Many items that previously have been recycled are headed for the trash heap until Northwest officials figure out what to do with them. Jim Winterbottom, district manager of Waste Connections, Inc., which operates The Dalles Disposal and Hood River Garbage, told The Dalles City Council on Oct. 23 that China is not accepting recycled materials from the West Coast at this time. “All this stuff we’ve been getting away with for years is coming back to haunt us,” Winterbottom said.
