To the editor: Many thanks to the TDC for a great article covering Jamie McLeod-Skinner’s recent visit to Wasco County. It is exciting to have a candidate for Congress who is so qualified, and so truly concerned for the well-being of all of US in Eastern Oregon.July 20, 2018 2:19 p.m. read more..
To the editor: It pains me (no pun intended) that in the USA, the first thing you think of when you get hurt or need to go to the hospital is....can I afford it, how much will it cost or maybe I'll just put it off because I can't afford the hospital. What a shame in this big, rich, powerful country of ours the leading cause of bankruptcy is hospital bills.July 20, 2018 2:18 p.m. read more..
To the editor: I watched in horror this morning, while our president openly admitted to the act of high treason. He did so when he conceded to the will of Vladimir Putin over our own justice department, as to the nature of allegations against Russian officials.July 20, 2018 2:17 p.m. read more..
To the editor: Over a year and a half ago, I purchased a rose bush from Parks and Recreation for the memorial garden in honor of my husband. Darrell dedicated over 48 years to this city (county) in law enforcement. I thought it only fitting that he should have a memorial in his name. I hadn’t learned my lesson yet!July 20, 2018 2:16 p.m. read more..
To the editor: There’s a really thought-provoking definition of the Deep State that I found in Newsmax Magazine: “Deep State (noun), a clandestine network entrenched inside the government that controls state policy behind the scenes, while elected officials are merely figureheads.”July 20, 2018 2:16 p.m. read more..
To the editor: In case anyone missed it, Oregon District 2 Representative Greg Walden is telling everyone near and far that he is the champion making a difference in the opioid crisis. However, I agree with Jamie McLeod-Skinner, Walden’s Democratic challenger this November, that Greg Walden is using the opioid crisis as a safe campaign platform instead of discussing the current issues of immigration reform and the healthcare crisis.July 20, 2018 2:15 p.m. read more..
To the editor: This story may sound familiar to you. My grandfather immigrated to our great nation in 1897 from Holland. While at Ellis Island, a port of entry for immigrants in New York City, he changed his name from Dirk to Dick in an attempt to better fit into this New World he was entering. He settled in Nyssa, Ore., eked out a life by buying and selling cattle, married and became a father to four children. My mother was his first born. At this time in history, life for immigrants is not as easy as it was for my grandfather, and it was not easy for him. People, especially people of color, both documented and undocumented, live in constant fear due to the presence of ICE in our communities.July 20, 2018 2:13 p.m. read more..
To the editor: It is a brave thing to do…to take a stand on the I.C.E. issue and let that stand be publicly recognized on a street corner day after day, or at a rally. I am thankful that I live in a time and place where that is possible. But this letter is not about that debate. This letter is to express appreciation for the approximately 60 NORCOR employees who have made a commitment to public safety by working with adult, juvenile, mentally ill inmates, and immigration detainees.July 17, 2018 2:07 p.m. read more..
To the editor: Who are we, as Americans? This question haunts me as I watch refugees and immigrants being dehumanized and harmed at our border and around the country. My heart breaks as I try to imagine the horrors they face at the hands of our own government.July 17, 2018 2:06 p.m. read more..
Harney County ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and Steven Hammond were released from a federal prison in California this week and flown home to Burns in a private jet, where they were greeted by a crush of well-wishers and family.July 13, 2018 2:14 p.m. read more..
To the editor: The sport uniforms used by students of TDWHS with Eagle-Indian logo have been made available for purchase by donation. If you, or someone you know, attended high school starting in 2007, with the Eagle-Indian mascot, please pass the information along.July 13, 2018 2:08 p.m. read more..
