To the editor: This letter is in support of John Nelson as Candidate for District 21 School Board, Zone 4. I have had the pleasure of working on the Start Making a Reader Today (SMART) Chapter with John for three years.
To the editor: As a retired firefighter, I would ask you to support Bill Wolfe for Fire Board Position 4. We worked together for many years and I think it would be helpful to have an actual firefighter helping to write policy.
To the editor: I have known Eric Nerdin for almost ten years. During this time, he has displayed a high level of commitment to our local youth programs. Eric has proven himself to be very dependable and willing to work very hard to accomplish any task that is put before him. Eric is well liked by peers and local youth. He consistently displays sound and solid judgement as long as I have known him.
To the editor: The District 21 School Board needs to think outside the box. Cutting educational instruction positions, including music (lifetime enrichment for all levels of ability), physical education (when there are so many overweight youth) and extra help for the gifted is totally unacceptable!
To the editor: We encourage people to re-elect Harry Larsen to the Mid-Columbia Fire District Board. Harry attended schools in The Dalles, plus college, and we have been acquainted with him for more than 30 years.
To the editor: I just wanted to take a moment and thank Firefighters Jeff Martizia and Erik Wright with Mid Columbia Fire & Rescue. My daughters preschool class went to MCFR today for a field trip and let me tell you it was a superb tour! It is wonderful that these busy Firefighters take the time to talk about fire safety with the children.
To the editor: To the editor: This is a letter of support for my friend and neighbor Eric Nerdin. He is running to be on the School Board.
To the editor: Eric Nerdin is a candidate for District 21 school board, and deserves your vote. Eric is a devoted father with an established record of involvement and commitment to the schools and local community. Eric understands the issues and challenges facing our schools and will work closely with the other board members to guide District 21 schools to a secure and successful future. Eric Nerdin for District 21 school board.
To the editor: I appear to be screaming madly that the sky is falling. “Oh pastors are lying and deceiving people.” Prove it! Last week a man wrote a letter and quoted a “supposed” Bible passage. Mark 8:36, “What is the profit for one to gain the whole (work, world?) if it causes the loss of his eternal soul?” The word “eternal” is not in this Bible passage. I looked in six different versions, no eternal. Called some friends for other versions, no eternal.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) Oregon has had measure 11 nearly two decades. In that time, we have seen no significant reduction in the crime rate. As of April 1, 2013, Oregon had 14,327 people behind bars and the yearly cost is $1.5 billion, about $105,000 per year for a single inmate. In contrast, educating a child costs on the order of $10,000. Because of Measure 11, the Department of Corrections sucks significant sums from other critically programs.
To the editor: A recent letter chastises Councilor Wood and me for our votes on the Main Street economic improvement district. We allegedly ignored public opinion.
To the editor: It’s starting again, career politicians have learned that the first vote might not pass, but if you “resubmit” your bill you will eventually cause people to say, “what’s the use?”
To the editor: I am writing in regard to a problem that we have in our schools, a problem that we only feel we read about in the papers. In reality, we have the problem in our schools.
To the editor: To the editor: I want to share with you an injustice being done to my daughter. My daughter is 12 years old and suffers from many health problems and while I was gone during the weekend of April 12 to April 15 (I went to jail for something I knew nothing about and was released on that Monday morning).
