Breaking News: Substation Fire grows to 36,000 acres

Letters to the Editors

Letter to the Editor: Thank you

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.

Letter to the Editor: Justice for all

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.

Letter to the Editor: Disheartening

To the editor: This letter is directed to my current representative in congress, Greg Walden: While I often disagree with your policies throughout the many years that you've served in Congress, I know you personally to be a dedicated representative that clearly has a grasp of issues important to eastern Oregonians. However, I absolutely no longer trust you, the president, his administration or other silent members of Congress to represent the mission and values of the United States as humanitarian country.

Letter to the Editor: Time for change

To the editor: A funny thing happened on the way to Rep. Greg Walden being a 20 year — 10 term — incumbent: he became a Washington Bigshot, a real player. He chairs an important committee and had well over $3 million dollars in his campaign despite being what the professional consultants consider a safe district; courtesy, of course, of all those constituents of his who don’t live anywhere near Oregon. Presumably, it’s those other constituents who wanted him to not just support, but sponsor, a law that would have deprived over 100,000 people in his district of health insurance.

Letter to the Editor: Walden question

To the editor: I was looking on Rep. Greg Walden's website and noticed that he did not have any public appearances scheduled between now and the November elections. That's too bad because I had some questions I wanted to ask him.

Letter to the Editor: Support schools

To the editor: I'm a fairly new resident of The Dalles, and a supporter of the Strong Community Schools bond effort to replace the four oldest district schools, including The Dalles High School. I wanted to contribute some of my thoughts about the greater impact of new schools on this community that I have become so fond of.

Letter to the Editor: Sad change

To the editor: We appreciated your piece in Thursday’s paper explaining the upcoming changes. We understand the need to change with changing times and economic pressures, and the push to cater to a younger more technically sophisticated readership. However, The Dalles is a community composed of all ages and technical interests.

Letter to the Editor: Inconsistency

To the editor: I served my country in Korea during 1951-52. I have a master’s degree in United States history. Over 32 years, I taught in middle school, high school and college. When I read the following words of entertainer John Legend about the children at the border, I wept for my country.

Letter to the Editor: Lopsided column

To the editor: In Karen Wilson’s column, “Trump should be “modern day president,” she lists various statements by him that are offensive. I agree that they are offensive, juvenile and unnecessary. However, she ignores the uncalled-for vile hatred of various forms thrown at him on nearly a daily basis.

Letter to the Editor: Barbaric practice

To the editor: Bring to mind your beloved son or daughter, your precious grandchild or niece or god-child whom you adore. Pull them into your lap, hold them in your arms, and feel their warm head snuggle into your chest. Now imagine your child being dragged out of your arms, kicking and screaming and crying out for you in panic.

Letter to the Editor: Vote Long-Curtiss

To the editor: With the resignation last year of John Huffman, the residents of House District 59 have been given the opportunity of replacing John with a potentially outstanding legislator. Darcy Long-Curtiss, a native and long term resident of The Dalles, is offering to serve local residents as our representative in Salem.
