To the editor: I would like to thank The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce and all the businesses who donated to the Shop Local contest.
To the editor: On Friday, Nov. 15, our brother Harold was at the Celilo Cancer Center to receive his daily radiation treatment for a cancerous tumor in his throat. While lying on the table in preparation for the radiation, the tumor cut off oxygen to his heart, causing it to stop.
To the editor: To those too young to remember John Lennon’s Christmas song, may we all listen to it this season and take heed: “So this is Christmas, for black and for white, the yellow and red ones, let’s stop all the fight.”
To the editor: I’ve read the letters regarding Food Stamps. Far worse than what can be bought with the EBT card are those things that cannot: Toilet paper, laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. Essentials. This is where the biggest change needs to be made.
Endangered: Over 70,000 acres range and farm land and wheat lands. Wildlife habitat. Centered between Deschutes and John Day scenic rivers. Raptors, eagles, hunting. The Journey Through Time Oregon Scenic By-way. And the vintage historic western towns of Antelope and Shaniko.
To the editor: I am a retired independent. As such I cannot agree with the two major parties, namely on “stimulus,” over-spending without having the funds.
To the editor: In response to the editorial and subsequent letters to the editor on the topic of what may be purchased with SNAP benefits, may I just say “Follow the money.”
To the editor: In response to the letter, “Deserving Pity,” on the 26th: As someone who has worked in a “Quickie Mart” when younger, I have seen so very many people misuse the system to buy chips, pop, candy, and food that has no nutritional value using the money from taxpayers. It is unconscionable that this practice should be allowed.
To the editor: Re: Ignorant editorial about the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. You do know that a ‘foodstamp’ recepient cannot purchase prepared hot goods anywhere with an EBT card don’t you? Or are you just going on the ‘facts’ you get from faux news?
To the editor: On Oct. 21, I was on my way to a check-up appointment at Celilo Cancer Center and, while trying to get out of my car into a wheelchair (I have severe COPD complications), I twisted around and broke my right femur. After I began screaming in pain, several people from Celilo came out to help me into the chair and then get me to the Emergency Room at the main hospital.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) I was driving in the country the other day when I saw a dog chained in a pen with some goats. Then I saw a second dog in a pen right next to it also with goats. Both dogs were on a chain hooked to a cable. One dog could go inside a building, but the other was out in the open. It looked like the only shelter was the overhang of a roof about 4 feet wide. In the afternoon there was no shade.
To the editor: Thank you, Salvation Army. For the last 10 years we have looked forward to Thanksgiving, when we were able to volunteer at the community Thanksgiving dinner. This year, because of the wife’s health issues and a date with the surgeon, we were unable to help out. All you volunteers and diners, we missed you.
To the editor: I am currently the president of the board of Community Meal, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. We provide a hot meal every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 4:30 p.m. in the dining room of the St. Vincent de Paul ministry facility at 315 West Third Street. Community Meal has been around since April 1, 1983.
To the editor: As someone who went to Iraq and spent almost a year there. I was so touched to read this story about Ahmed Atieh in the Nov. 24 Chronicle.
To the editor: This evening, as my wife and I enjoyed an exquisite meal at one of our fine city restaurants, we decided to go for a drive through the downtown corridor of The Dalles after dinner.
