Letter to the Editor: Be skeptical

To the editor: Fifty years ago, when I was a young girl sitting around the kitchen table, our family would tune in to a program that asked listeners to weigh in on the pros and cons of different moral issues or legal questions. With that background and the fact that back then there were only a few sources of news, I was struck by a recent commentary in The Oregonian that felt parents should discuss with their children biases in today’s news and social media.

Letter to the Editor: Make voice heard

To the editor: In response to “Man ejected from Lyle school meeting.” It is interesting that Lyle Superintendent Andrew Kelly's former boss called me a liar and provided a quote that had a dead man apologize to Kelly for striking Kelly's vehicle with his body.

Letter to the Editor: No vote on Merkley

To the editor: Last August I wrote a plain, simple and blunt letter strongly objecting to the “ludicrous Mueller Morass” and proposed that such a “witchhunt” should be focused on “The Real Witches of Washington DC.” I mentioned a few names, my choices.

Letter to the Editor: Serious complaints

To the editor: NWCSD 21 Board of Directors: When the two districts merged, we were promised we’d save money with only one administration, and our school system would be better off. Yet our district remains the same, with very little community support behind it. I received an anonymous letter in an email, with complaints against Candy Armstrong, and a note saying the board would not investigate anonymous complaints. Consider that letter signed by me as well, there needs to some serious review of policy. This is now the third complaint you’ve received, I hope you take it seriously and do what is best for the students.

Letter to the Editor: Enforce off-leash time

Letter to the Editor: Time for a change

To the editor: Today (Jan. 17) I watched a press release starring our very own Representative Greg Walden in which he blamed Democrats for “holding CHIP funding hostage.” Seriously? That's pretty low, even by current political standards.
