Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editorial: Overview of society

To the editor: After 50 years of watching and listening to people from all over the world, I notice one thing: There are people who can deal with problems, people who can’t, and some that are border cases.

Letter to the editor: Good movies... and bad

To the editor: I recently sent a letter to Columbia Cinemas, telling them a big “Thank you” for their cooperation with YouthThink to offer the free Saturday family movies. This is a great way to give families a fun activity together while benefiting the community with the canned food donations. So I wanted to thank Columbia Cinemas for supporting youth and families in this area.

Letter to the editor: Respect for laws

To the editor: What’s wrong with this picture? If you illegally cross the border of North Korea, you’ll get 12 years of hard labor and you won’t be sending any money home to your family. If you illegally cross the Afghanistan border, you get shot, and you won’t be sending any money back to your family.

Letter to the editor: Train safety

To the editor: Although I was unable to participate in The Dalles City Council’s decision of Jan. 26 calling for increased safety oversight of oil trains, I wish the record to note my support for this resolution.

Letter to the editor: Too fast

To the editor: I am 13-years-old and I am concerned about the speeding on Thompson Street. I have two little brothers that like to play in the yard but they can’t because of the people driving so fast.

Letter to the editor: Making music

To the editor: I am a recent participant in the Oregon all state band. I would just like to say, if you are in a local band, that working to all state band would be a great goal. It is a amazing experience where you can join others that take music seriously and create the most beautiful music.

Letter to the editor: ‘Blunderland’

To the editor: Although I’m not an author, I somehow feel compelled to compose a realistic children’s story that would reflect the ways, nature and mannerisms of our political figures in the nation’s capital. How the Congress and Senate achieve great goals by thoughtfully evaluating each bill that comes their way…and how the president presides over this satin-smooth scene. My title would be “Malice in Blunderland.”

Letter to the editor: Honesty thanked

To the editor: I wish to express my appreciation for the crowd at a recent ball game. I take tickets for the Sherman Huskies and try to be there an hour before game time.

Letter to the editor: Fond memory

To the editor: Hello I would like to share a little story about some folks we met at Multnomah Falls last week, Jan 21st to be exact.

Letter to the editor: Better coverage

To the editor: The Chronicle’s front-page story January 23 covering an interested person’s public records request concerning Wasco County’s decision to leave the North Central Public Health District was enlightening and truly newsworthy. However, one has to ask why it took an interested person’s effort to generate the Chronicle’s reporting of the records involved.

Letter to the editor: Uniting Americans

To the editor: This morning, I thought about the State of the Union issues, and the congressional vs. presidential state of stalemate. I know a way to pass something through Congress that would also get the swift signature of the president… sort of get the “ball” of cooperation going.

Letter to the editor: Clean up park

To the editor: I like to walk my little dog at the Lewis and Clark event site. The parks department does a great job during the summer at keeping the grass cut and the park clean.

Letter to the editor: Look for the truth

To the editor: Who do you serve? Do you serve veterans? Do you serve patients? People? America? Your church? Money? Status? Service is a good thing; people who serve usually are better people.

Letter to the editor: Missed coverage

To the editor: Tonya Brumley was recognized as Woman of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce. The Chronicle’s coverage of this does not state her work nor her work with organizations.
