To the editor: Thank you, Mark Gibson, for your inspired and thoughtful response to Tuesday’s editorial question, “Is racism growing worse in the U.S.?” You looked at respected resources, and drew your conclusions from them and from your own experience. I hope your co-editor had a chance to thoroughly read your writing, because it may help her feel less threatened by national events. There is no way an “anti-cop ideology is being promoted by our president.” This is inflammatory nonsense.
To the editor: It’s been just over a month since the recent fiery train derailment in Mosier, and all the oil cars are long gone.
To the editor: The Board of Directors and staff of Wonderworks Children’s Museum of the Gorge in The Dalles would like to publicly thank the 16 volunteers from Google who came to the Museum in June as part of GoogleServe.
To the editor: We would like to thank everyone who helped fight the wildfire that burned our property on Sunday, July 3rd. Your quick response helped to save our home, buildings and livestock. We are very grateful.
To the editor: The Kaser family and those involved in the farming operation would like to extend our gratitude toward all the agencies and individuals who responded on Thursday, June 30, to the Fifteen Mile Fire east of The Dalles.
To the editor: Where have all the flags gone!!?? I was so disappointed there were no flags waving down Second Street in The Dalles during the Fourth of July weekend. They have always been there in the past during national holidays.
To the editor: I would like to thank all the people who were responsible for the wonderful concert July 3 at the Lewis and Clark Festival Park.
To the editor: David Clear makes an interesting argument about marijuana production and retail sales. It seems our city council was duped after Prohibition was repealed, for at some point, the council must have approved sale of alcohol in our town.
To the editor: When the pilgrims threw off the British Red Coats, it was for a reason; to gain freedoms they did not have. This country has had to protect these freedoms ever since. The individuals involved are our heroes. They are not terrorists!
To the editor: Due to the oil train disaster in Mosier, there has been much uproar among the public, but no one has provided any solutions. Their view is to shut down the rail oil tank car traffic in the Columbia Gorge corridor, without seeking alternatives. I am offering a solution that can resolve safety concerns.
To the editor: Oh, this ol’ river of ours could tell us a lot. This grand old lady of the Gorge, this wise old matriarch.
On behalf of the Gorge Grown Food Network board of directors I want to thank everyone who has supported the changes to the Hood River Farmers Market. Saying goodbye to the Hood River Middle School location was a difficult decision, but due to space and timing challenges with school in session, vendors called for a change.
To the editor: I find it quite odd that The Dalles Chronicle has failed to truly acknowledge that any tragedy has happened in Orlando. A few small articles printed on the third page of today’s paper is hardly an appropriate response from such a community of loving and caring people.
To the editor: “Shop locally.” Sounds good, doesn’t it? But as a woman with very little mobility, downtown The Dalles is impossible. I’m especially angry that two parking spaces in front of Klindt’s have been swallowed. Nearly all of the handicapped parking is the heck and gone away from shopping spots. Crud, if I could walk from the spaces at the transportation center, I wouldn’t need a walker.
To the editor: I live on Thompson Street and I want to thank Mayor Steve Lawrence and the city council for getting our street fixed without $10,000 out of our pocket, interest and a lien on our property. Past City Manager Nolan Young badgered the residents of Thompson Street for years over this.
