Editorial: Inmates are still human beings

As the debate over housing illegal immigrants at the regional jail ebbs and flows, I have found myself wishing the conversation would broaden into treatment of inmates as a whole.

No one who is locked up should be eating meat labelled “not for human consumption,” but it is happening.

Editorial: City still doesn’t get the message

Here we go again. It seems to have become a predictable routine that every few months, and sometimes more often, the Chronicle writes an editorial pointing out problems in The Dalles City Council’s decision-making process. Once again, we reiterate that this newspaper isn’t “out to get them,” we are simply fulfilling our watchdog role to make sure elected officials are operating in an open and transparent manner — and putting the needs of citizens before their own wants and desires.
