To the editor: Recently there have been editorials in the Chronicle, Times-Journal and most notably, Sherman County eNews that I feel I must address.
The Wasco County Veterans’ Service Office will be able to better meet the needs of customers if Measure 96 is approved by voters in the Nov. 8 election, say two local veteran advocates.
To the editor: Reading the interview of Ms. [Susan] Harris, who is running for mayor of The Dalles, it became apparent to me she is not aware of how The Dalles city government operates.
To the editor: Frontier TeleNet is an ORS 190 public service organization jointly held by Sherman, Wheeler and Gilliam counties. County judges and the North Central Education Service District superintendent are board members.
To the editor: I believe that Pat Arnold should be our next county commissioner because she is passionate about helping our county and community. I am confident that she will work tirelessly for Klickitat County because in the years that I’ve known her she has dedicated so much time and effort to making our community better and that will only continue once she is elected.
To the editor: The state auditor is the elected official charged with rooting out waste and fraud in government operations at all levels in Washington state.
To the editor: Last year Oregon, and specifically Portland, lost a company that had annual gross revenue of $40 million. This company had many local suppliers and employees. Today the building is vacant because of over-regulation from city, county and state government people who sponge off the backs of business.
Our nation as we have known it is slipping away as more and more of the Kingmakers (people in control and with their own agenda) make decisions that are at odds with “We the people.”
To the editor: Mosier was lucky it wasn’t a windy day when the oil train derailed. If railroads could fix derailments, they would have done so long ago. BNSF derails a train every 600,000 train-miles. If volatile Bakken crude oil in the tank cars is heated from the burning leaks, it can explode.
To the editor: It is time for a change at the Klickitat PUD Board of Commissioners. Current commissioners have taken on very large amounts of debt (now at $130 million) in pursuit of risky generation projects.
To the editor: As we move toward the November election, I urge Klickitat County residents to vote Pat Arnold for County Commission. Having lived in this county for over 20 years, I have yet to see a more qualified candidate.
To the editor: I met Pat Arnold in 2004 when I worked in Trout Lake coordinating AmeriCorps programs. My first interactions with her were on her farm, where we bought our eggs, and with her calling me to offer housing to AmeriCorps members who had moved to the region to complete their term of national service.
To the editor: Every once in a while, a letter appears in the Chronicle that just begs for a response, and the recent letter decrying the operations of AmeriTies is one such letter.
To the editor: This letter is to thank some Good Samaritans of The Dalles. Unfortunately, we don’t have their names, but we hope they see this letter
To the editor: The family of Spud Simer would like to thank the Wasco and Sherman County community for their heartfelt support during our recent bereavement.
