Letter to the Editor: Cross party line

To the editor: “Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair.” Author unknown. For many years, I trusted our congressman, Greg Walden. Even though I’ve always been a Democrat, I voted for him. I can’t say it took just “seconds” for Mr. Walden to break my trust, but over the past few years, during which he voted ENTIRELY along party lines (even though many of his constituents crossed their party lines to vote for him), my trust in him was broken, and it cannot be repaired.

Letter to the Editor: Chronicle failed

To the editor: What a great service The Dalles Chronicle does for this community. There is a “Class Action Lawsuit” against Amerities for poisoning our air here in The Dalles for almost 100 years (since 1922), and there has been just one article about this possible $1.25 millon dollar payout.

Letter to the Editor: Missing piece

To the editor: I have seen recent letters and articles in the news, and while they do a pretty good job of advertising for a California Democrat (McLeod-Skinner) to represent rural Oregon, they were missing some facts.

Letter to the Editor: Regulatory failure

To the editor: There is a little weed which causes a big problem in eastern Oregon: genetically engineered Creeping Bentgrass, created by agribusiness giants Scotts Miracle-grow and Monsanto for use as turf grass on golf-courses and to be resistant to the use of Round-up weed killer. The big problem is the grass has escaped and can affect non GMO crops and invade natural areas.

Letter to the Editor: Support D21 bond

To the editor: I am writing in support of passing the bond measure for our D-21 schools. We are falling behind in updating our school buildings at all levels. Our buildings need to be timeless, cost-effective, easy to maintain and facilities of which we can be proud.

Letter to the Editor: Frontier TeleNet facts

To the editor: A recent editorial in E-News reads more like a personal grudge than actual “news.” E-News once again disparages Frontier TeleNet with partial or missing information. Here is the reality.

Letter to the Editor: Greatly disappointed

To the editor: I was greatly disappointed in (Mark Gibson’s) “Crosstalk” response in the Aug. 8 Chronicle. I thought your column was supposed to reflect a more liberal point of view in contrast to the vile, name-calling, misinformed screeds coming from our beloved editor.

Letter to the Editor: Don’t devalue others

To the editor: I’m disappointed that sometimes members of our Gorge community cannot discuss or write about politics without calling other people names, as Kris Wilhelm, of Hood River, did on several occasions in her letter to the editor published in the Saturday/Sunday edition of The Dalles Chronicle (“Walden working hard,” Aug. 11-12, 2018). It makes me wonder if those who must use labels are afraid that if they really consider and think about positions that are different than their own that they may actually adjust those positions.

Letter to the Editor: Editor not telling truth

To the editor: The Chronicle editor was very distant from the truth in her Aug. 8 diatribe about socialism, stating that it “… failed everywhere it has been tried.” The Scandinavian countries don’t think their system has failed. They have many successful examples of democratic socialism that are similar to those advocated by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez especially in health care and education.
