To the editor: Jesus was a Jew. The word “Christian” is used twice in the New Testament, never by Jesus. Are Jews being persecuted? Only those who claim to be Jews and disobey God’s commands. But those who obey the laws are governed by God alone, and cannot be persecuted by anyone.

Letter to the Editor: Don’t gamble on vote

To the editor: As we hear about the $1.6 million budget shortfall in Hood River County, we are reminded that just eight years ago, Waco County faced a similar deficit of $1.3 million.

Letter to the Editor: Reliable candidate

To the editor: Integrity and accountability are buzzwords that we always hear in campaign promises, yet we often see nothing of those promises once the elections are done.
