Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Thanks for support

To the editor: Flagstone Senior Living would like to thank MCMC’s Spiritual Health Center for their recent support as we grieved the passing of a number of cherished residents in our Memory Care Unit.

Letter to the editor: Big and little Jesus

To the editor: Most people believe in Jesus. Some believe he was an influential person in history. Some believe he was a prophet, but second to another, later, wiser, voice. Some are very religious about their belief and put up Christmas lights and Nativity scenes.

Letter to the editor: Chronicle in the dog house

To the editor: Being a dog enthusiast, and avid watcher of the annual Westminster Dog Show, it was a real thrill to watch and see a local win the most coveted award given at the show this year!

Letter to the editor: Google’s fair share

To the editor: Google is good for our town. I think most would agree with that statement, but there are many who have concerns about how the tax abatements work and whether our city/county/state is receiving a fair tax revenue stream from the new data storage center.

Letter to the editor: Fireworks important

To the editor: I am writing to you in order to voice my words of the importance in regards to the Fourth of July fireworks display. As a child who grew up in The Dalles, the fireworks display is one of my many fondest memories.

Letter to the editor: Following the rules

To the editor: Some have called into question the value of certain types of investigations done at the behest of the Office of The District Attorney. Oregon law provides that prosecution of crime is about accountability, reformation, deterrence and responsibility for one’s actions.

Letter to the editor: Review of awards

To the editor: On March 5th the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation had the pleasure of celebrating the ninth year of the Tradition of Compassion Philanthropy Awards.

Letter to the editor: Bullying at NORCOR

To the editor: Does The Dalles Chronicle support, endorse, promote Bullying, Fear Mongering, Sexism, Egotism, Lying, Hypocrisy and Bigotry of the Oregon Justice System as I experienced since 19 Feb 2007?

Letter to the editor: Call for help

To the editor: To those who anticipate or are facing foreclosure: Please give us a call. We are here to help.

Letter to the editor: Proud of students

To the editor: Amazing! I attended “Godspell,” a musical play by The Dalles High School Thursday evening and was delighted to see and hear a brilliant performance.

Letter to the editor: Those annoying calls

To the editor: I get them all the time and, even after having the number blocked to telemarketers, or whatever one wants to call this, the calls still come. I decided to play a game with the pests, and lately I have had fewer calls. When the phone rings and it is a nuisance call, here is what to do (Be sure the call is not a friend or anyone important. Be real sure):

Letter to the editor: Plan is not working

To the editor: The Dalles will never be a tourist town so make it a destination town. On the plus side, we have the Fort Dalles Museum, a first class disc golf course at Sorosis Park and we’ll have a new swimming pool and host first-class bicycle and car events.

Letter to the editor: DA wasting resources

To the editor: What a huge article on Friday the 13th with the DA making a mountain out of a molehill over 54 dollars. What a waste of taxpayer dollars for this conflict! The employee, David Skakel, just wanted to use some paint for his office! Let’s see now, if Eric Nisley’s wife was a county commissioner, would he have done this? Seems to me he is just mad that his wife didn’t make it.

Letter to the editor: Let’s work together

To the editor: My name is Glenn Pierce. I have been retired for two years from the North Central Public Health District (previously named Wasco/Sherman Public Health Department). I was the former Environmental helath Specialist for 27 years in Wasco, Sherman and Gilliam counties.

Letter to the editor: Thanks for pool use

To the editor: I would like to thank The Dalles Fitness and Court Club for donating use of their pool to the 4-H Robotics Program.For the past two weeks, TDFCC has kindly allowed us the use of their pool in preparation for the upcoming Marine Advanced Technology Education Center (MATE) competition in late April. The 4-H Tech Club hopes to send a team of The Dalles students to the competition which involves designing, creating, and refining submersible robots to complete missions related to this year’s theme: Science and Industry in the Arctic.
