Letter to the editor: TD needs roller rink

To the editor: Hi my name is Nevaeh and I just want to talk about fun things to do for kids like me. The community put in a new swimming pool and that was a good idea but some people don’t want to swim every day and don’t have the money. But what can we do during the winter? So I had an idea that we should get a roller skating rink.

Letter to the editor: Ray is a 'river lion'

To the editor: After reading the article about Ray the sea lion I am enamoured with him. Now I am not a crazed animal rights activist nor am I a boat house owner who has to put up with his massive destructive size. I honestly feel like we should leave him alone, in the 4 years he’s been living in our area I haven’t heard of any major drop in salmon numbers or any stories of mass destruction due to his presence, outside of a drooping dock and occupied deck.

Commentary: Time to stop catastrophic wildfires, create jobs

Around Oregon and throughout the West, another fire season is well underway. Overstocked, diseased, and bug-infested forests are at risk of the massive and catastrophic wildfire that clog our air with smoke and threaten our streams. All this while our mills are starving for a reliable supply of timber and people need jobs.

Letter to the editor: Babe Ruth thanks

To the editor: I would like to thank all the Babe Ruth volunteers who so graciously helped in hosting the 13-15 Pacific Northwest Regional Tournament. I have often been told by our National organization that Babe Ruth volunteers are the best in the nation. Given the 105 degree plus temperatures during the tournament these people proved the point and went way beyond the call of duty to get the job done.

Faith matters: Uneasy? ‘Be a sign of hope to others’

Do you feel a sense of unease thinking about our world today? Thank God that He is waking you up to have "ears to hear and eyes to see" what is happening, and a chance to get ready...spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically. According to many prophetic voices, there is a Great Storm coming upon our country and our world, a chastisement for sin and a fiery cleansing of the earth.

Letter to the editor: City worth visiting

To the editor: Visiting The Dalles is always a special treat. Why do we go there? My sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. George McDonald, live there. We live in Orlando, Fla., and try to visit as often as we can.

Letter to the editor: Fire support needed

To the editor: Honestly, the Dallesport Fire Department is one of the finest I have ever seen. Men and women donate their time and energy to benefit our community and sometimes they save a home or a life. This is amazing! We all benefit from their hard and dirty work!
