Letter to the editor: Vote Runyon, Hege

To the editor: Vote for Rod Runyon and Scott Hege in the upcoming election for County Commissioner.

letter to the editor: Wolf supporter

To the editor: It seems to me that Diana Weston (letter March 18) has been reading too many “big bad wolf” fairy tales in regard to getting a good steak on her table.

Letter to the editor: Elect Ferguson

To the editor: As a mother, school employee, and longtime resident of Wasco County, I am writing to offer my endorsement for Nora Ferguson for the office of Wasco County Commissioner, Position 1. Having known Nora for a number of years, I can personally attest to her exemplary qualities. Nora has lived in Wasco County for the last 10 years, and in that time has raised a family, owned her own business, and worked for the North Wasco County School District.

Letter to the editor: Stop abortion funding

To the editor: Many Oregonians may be unaware that Oregon is one of 13 states that pay for abortions with public tax funds, and that nearly half the abortions in Oregon last year were funded by taxpayers.

Letter to the Editor: No dispensary ban

To the editor: In 1998, Oregon voters approved the use of medical marijuana for certain health conditions. Today, 15 years later, there are nearly 60,000 patients registered in the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP).

Letter to the editor: Real heroes

To the editor: My daughter and her family were having breakfast at the Days Inn when three National Guardsmen in uniform came in. My 5-year-old grandson’s eyes got bigger than hub caps and he gasped in awe, “Look there are some Americans!”

Letter to the editor: A new record

To the editor: On March 28 and 29, the Wasco County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police and Wasco County Sheriff’s Mounted Posse came together to support Special Olympics at Spooky’s Pizza in The Dalles. This event aptly named “Tip a Cop” annually raises money to fund our local Special Olympians in the Mid-Columbia area.

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.

Tease photo

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.
