To the editor: Thank you, thank you, thank you! On Monday, Nov. 18, Burgerville hosted a fundraiser for ALS and we had an excellent turnout.
To the editor: Dear Santa, It’s been a long time since I’ve written you a letter for a big wish. I was born on Christmas Day in 1949 with a twin sister (her being older by 6 minutes, which is OK). I got to see what I was getting from Santa, and for my birthday (just a different color). To me every day is a special day. I love Christmas, also shared it with my parents who are gone now. When my dad got sick, I was his Elf for mom.
To the editor: Although not a socialist myself, I am happy to learn that Seattle voters elected Socialist candidate Kshama Sawant to City Council two weeks ago. There are three reasons for my praise:
To the editor: I am not one to write letters to the editor. I feel however that this needs to be expressed. I am getting married on Dec. 7 and I chose to shop local for my bride’s wedding ring. I chose J.D. Smith Jewelers to provide me with a platinum band.
To the editor: We write to thank the Wasco County Road Department for the thoughtful job they have recently completed to improve safety on Sevenmile Hill Road.
To the editor: Being in the Veterans Day Parade I feel a bit more accepted as a veteran having seen all of the entries plus all of the people and especially children waving at us. Very nice parade and a good feeling- The next day I attended the Dufur School Celebration.
To the editor: I’m responding to your editorial of Nov. 19, regarding the SNAP program. You do realize that you cannot buy toilet paper with SNAP funds, correct? So the pop-can buyer in your story could (theoretically, though probably not) be reduced to having to exchange cans for that?
To the editor: Nov. 20, marked the annual observance of National Education Support Professionals Day. A time for saluting public school support staff and the contribution they make to public education. The interaction between children, parents and ESP’s is vital to the continued success of public education.
To the editor: This is to the person or persons who stole the black Pomeranian from Fred Meyer. Instead of stealing an elderly lady’s dog, why not give the dog back, claim the reward money and buy one? That’s a pretty low thing to do to someone. And thanks to you stealing the dog, the woman looking frantically for him fell and shattered her ankle bone.
To the editor: If you are a rabid Obama fan and haven’t read the children’s book about the Emperor’s Clothes, drop by the library and grab a copy. It is relevant on Obama’s phony “fix” for Obamacare.
To the editor: From the teller at the bank to the cashier at the check-out counter, I think there must be a new fad or else why are they wearing their necklines so low as to show cleavage?
To the editor: Welcome home, brother. I, too, felt the “sting” of being a Vietnam Vet and at times, of even being in the military. Much of that has passed ... different era ... different mindset. But I am not the least bit surprised at the salute granted you by another vet during the parade.
To the editor: Dr. Frank Toda has done an excellent job in developing our college into something this community can be proud of. He’s single-handedly raised millions of dollars for The Dalles and Hood River campuses. Beautiful new buildings grace these two campuses, and the older buildings have been remodeled and improved. The college has recently become accredited. The list of accomplishments continue.
To the editor: Our 12-year-old daughter has a benign bone tumor (osteochondroma) that most likely will never turn malignant, but the constant required monitoring of it is enough to remind us that the direction of her life could change any day. When things are going well, it’s easy for us to forget that life-altering events can even happen at all.
To the editor: Pastor Jerry: The greatest show of courage by men and women in history was during the Reformation of the 1500’s. What was being reformed? The most evil organization on earth, the holy Roman Catholic Church.
