To the editor: An investment in Rural Oregon for nearly 60 years, Outdoor School has provided high-quality, place-based science education to generations of Oregon students. Launched in 1957 in southern Oregon, Outdoor School is a tradition that has enriched and inspired over one million Oregonians.

To the editor: The Dalles Art Center would like to extend a big thank you to all the volunteers and supporters that helped turn the “All That Jazz” Piano Auction Event into a success. Thank you to the Education Foundation as well as Ernie Blatz and Carol Roderick for representing the D21 School Board.
To the editor: The young of the year are on the ground! I have protected fish and wildlife for 50 years in the Mid-Columbia area. As a now-retired Fish and Game officer, and while I worked, I picked up hundreds of dead wildlife off our roads, from Silver Gray Squirrels to elk.
To the editor: Thank you, Mr. Peachey, for showing justice and defending a public servant, Eric Nisley, whose purpose is to keep our town focused and intact, yet who has to contend with being badgered by those who admire and envy him to the point that their own personal satisfaction is gained by bringing up the individual’s shortcomings, which we as human beings all have.
To the editor: Because two of the three Wasco County Commissioners are former Rotarians, and District Attorney Eric Nisley and Wasco County Counsel Brad Timmons are current members of The Rotary Club of The Dalles, a reminder seems timely in light of recent activity at the courthouse: THE FOUR-WAY TEST — The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.
To the editor: Shame on You Wasco County! The county seems to have some major issues. Is the county using my tax payer dollars to hire extra auditors, lawyers and staff to prove a point? The many articles that have appeared in our paper are ridiculous and quite embarrassing to me as a citizen of Wasco County. It’s nothing but a “he did”, “she did”, “he said”, “she said,” it makes the ones that are in charge of running our county look incompetent.
Thanks for attending Color Dash
Thanks for help during car accident
To the editor: It's not often that a group of 1,000+ gather in one location in The Dalles, but on May 16th it happened, and it was a colorful sight to behold!
To the editor: Your Sunday (June 7) article on oak woodlands was excellent for oaks west of the Cascades and in California, but is somewhat misleading for oaks in Wasco County. For instance Sudden Oak Death Syndrome is “taking out the larger oaks” in California and Southern Oregon, but it does not affect White Oaks, the only kind in Wasco County. This article talks about conditions and research in California and the West Side because absolutely no oak research has been done east of the Cascades. Oak woodlands in the Willamette Valley and Puget Sound areas are unhealthy, and that is where all the research and restoration ideas for oaks are coming from.
To the editor: I have known Eric Nisley since he was a boy in school. He was a good kid and grew up to be a good and honorable man. Our town is fortunate to have him. Thank you to Tom Peachey for addressing that disgusting article which, by design, appeared to be an attempt to publicly humiliate Eric and his family. The designer of said article is either seriously ill-informed or has a severe mean streak, which is not an attractive quality.
