Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Voter choice

To the editor: This is a message to voters who (even though they do not want a Clinton presidency) say they just can’t vote for Trump because he doesn’t represent all of their principles and values. They say it’s more important to be right than to win. They say they’ll vote Independent or Libertarian, which is just the same as not voting at all. Sorry to break the news, but voting Independent or Libertarian (or not voting at all) will not achieve the goals you desire.

Letter to the editor: Is this it?

To the editor: I would like all voters to consider a question regarding the upcoming presidential election: Is this really the best we can do?

Letter to the editor: Against subdivision

To the editor: When I bought my property in unincorporated Dallesport, it was with the intent that I could retire in a community with peace and quiet. I purposely bought a property of one-third acre in size so I would have some space between me and my neighbors. I bought and paid for my property in full at time of purchase in 2005.

Letter to the Editor: End-time events

To the editor: Four years ago, it came to me so strongly that that was the last normal election we would have. I could have prophesied it and felt no fear of the Lord.

Letter to the Editor: League thanks

To the editor: Now that we have concluded another summer baseball/softball season, I would like to thank all of our Babe Ruth League volunteers and our Community Sponsors.

Letter to the Editor: Trail needs help

To the editor: Last week I was looking for the Riverfront Trail and found it.

Letter to the editor: Clinton mockery

Letter to the editor: Wake up!

To the editor: When a man tries to stop another from committing suicide on an overpass and others just drive by or take videos or even encourage him to jump, I have to wonder what kind of a society have we created?

Letter to the editor: Going strong

To the editor: On behalf of The Dalles Sister Cities Association, I wish to express our appreciation to The Chronicle and staff writer Jesse Burkhardt for last week’s excellent article on our recent student delegation to Miyoshi City, Japan, sister city of The Dalles. This journey would not have been possible without crucial assistance of many individuals and organizations.

Letter to the editor: Trump's wall

To the editor: There should be a wall. This wall should be across the northern border of Texas, northern borders of New Mexico, and Arizona, the northern and eastern border of Nevada, and isolate all of California. Mexico should pay for it.
