Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: Roaming Churchill

To the editor: Say it isn’t true. Sorry, it really is. The bust of Winston Churchill, who was so powerfully instrumental in helping America, England and all our allies gain victory over our enemies in World War II was disgracefully removed from the White House and sent back to the U.K. in 2008 by newly elected President Obama. What an arrogant and disrespectful slap in the face of Great Britain.

Letter to the Editor: Vote for Bailey

To the editor: I think Bridget Bailey would be a benefit to Wasco County as a county commissioner. I have known her all her life. I know her to be a tremendous worker with lots of energy. She is different because she is willing to “think outside the box.” She gets great pleasure when she identifies a problem and gets to research a solution.

Letter to the Editor: A warm season

To the editor: The Dalles Warming Place finished the 2013-14 season on March 21. This is our fourth season and each year the need increases.

Letter to the Editor: Kitten season

To the editor: “Kitten season” is here; the first litters have arrived much too early this year. This isn’t good news for our community.

Editor: Cover Oregon shuts public out

The (Bend) Bulletin, March 28: We already knew Cover Oregon spent money it shouldn’t. It created a health care marketplace that didn’t work. And now we learn it held secret meetings when it said it wouldn’t.

Letter to the editor: Where's the pea?

To the editor: As a young, naïve farm boy, I remember going to the circus side shows. The shill had a pea and three half walnut shells. He bet you two bits against a dollar you could not guess which shell the pea was under. Of course, it was in his hand all the time.

Lettter to the Editor: Thanks, Depot

To the editor: The Community Meal board members would like to publicly thank the employees of The Home Depot for the very clean and precise painting of our dining room.

Letter to the Editor: Basic geography

To the editor: The letter titled, “Miracles here” in the March 24 edition looked interesting. For one thing, it seemed to be pushing the 400 word limit. However, it was the mention of telescopes in the first paragraph, that caught my attention.

Letter to the Editor: Ready to garden

To the editor: If you are like me, waiting for the ground to dry out enough to turn over that first spade full of soil, you too are ready to g-a-r-d-e-n.

Letter to the Editor: Funding goals

To the editor: We appreciate the article regarding the staffing request to the Board of County Commissioners.

Letter to the Editor: Miracles here

To the editor: According to the TV news I saw on Tuesday evening, March 18, scientists have finally developed such telescopic instrumentation to have successfully viewed back into time to actually see some of the earliest moments of the space-time inflationary creation event they say happened 13.8 billion years ago.

Letter to the Editor: In appreciation

To the editor: We would like to show our appreciation to The Chronicle and those of you who showed respect, not only by your words, but by your moment of silence at the beginning of the recent softball game in remembrance of Ed Edmo.

Letter to the Editor: Wolf clarification

To the editor: There were some errors in the “Wolf Trouble” articles. In Oregon, wolves west of Hwys 395-78-95 remain protected by the federal Endangered Species Act, with the federal U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the lead management agency.

Letter to the Editor: Register now

To the editor: My name is Russ Brown. I will be running for public office in the upcoming Nov. 5 election for The Dalles City Council. Although the election is several months away, this seemed a good time to remind people who are not registered to vote, to do so.

Letter to the Editor: Consenting adults

To the editor: I would like to thank Darlien France for pointing out to us all that the Republican party does not believe that all citizens should be afforded the same rights as guaranteed by our Constitution. (Letters March 20).
