Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: Proud of Villaneuva

To the editor: I am very proud of one NFL player. His name is Alejandro Villanueva of the Pittsburgh Steelers franchise. This man is a former captain in the Army and ex-Ranger who did three tours in Afghanistan.

Letter to the Editor: Thank you Eagles

To the editor: On Sept 16, The Dalles Eagle Riders held their fifth annual Poker Ride benefiting two local veteran groups, Point Man Ministries and Outside the Wire. Smoke was still present in the gorge but the participants and volunteers still had fun!

Letter to the Editor: Who is extreme?

To the editor: In the Sept. 8 Chronicle “article,” “Walden Talks Politics...”, Congressman Walden stated “Indivisible, which seems to draw a lot of extremists, is not a movement designed to build agreement and unity.” Walden's assertion is absolutely untrue.

Letter to the Editor: Smoke and mirrors

To the editor: Enough smoke and mirrors.

Letter to the Editor: Ask first

To the editor: To the person who complained about the "unkempt graves" at IOOF. Have you visited regularly over the past several years? Have you noticed that things are looking much better? Do you know how big the budget is to run the cemetery, or how much water they have to keep everything green?

Letter to the Editor: Bad outweighs good

To the editor: I totally agree with Mr. Paul Crowley’s letter to the editor (Sept. 14) in The Dalles Chronicle. I, too, believe that fireworks in the hands of the public, especially kids, is dangerous and unnecessary.

Letter to the Editor: Compassion needed

To the editor: In the Chronicle’s Aug. 22nd Crosstalk, one of the authors condemned the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “far left” organization for naming the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Research Council as “hate groups.”

Letter to the Editor: Walden achievements

To the editor: While the left keeps highlighting their outrage with Congressman Walden, Greg and the president have quietly achieved successful legislation with the House approving more than 300 bills in just the first six months of 2017.

Letter to the Editor: Enjoyed racing article

To the editor: I enjoyed the article about Guy Weedman and his racing career. There are a few others who race oval track out of The Dalles area.

Letter to the Editor: Police do nothing

To the editor: I am angry that the police in this city do nothing about the traffic infractions you see everywhere. They drive past speeders, people not stopping at stop signs, people texting while driving, and others, like they have blinders on.

Letter to the Editor: Hillary’s lies continue

To the editor: Is Hillary Clinton incapable of telling the truth?

Letter to the Editor: Not ‘extremists’

To the editor: Gotta say, Mr. Walden, you may want to think that your critics are just people from Portland, but I’m here in The Dalles and I am talking to the actual people who live here and we are not happy with the job you are doing.

Letter to the Editor: Open enrollment

To the editor: Obamacare is still available, but the enrollment period is shorter this year. People can get help now in choosing a plan.

Letter to the Editor: Accountability

To the editor: Federal debt stands at $20 trillion and the CBO projects that we will add another nearly $10 trillion over the next ten years. As citizens, we need to hold the president and our elected officials, accountable for their choices.

Letter to the Editor: Limit fireworks

To the editor: The Eagle Creek fire is approaching 50 square miles in size. Its start has been attributed to a 15-year-old tossing some type of firework into a tinderbox of a forest. One hopes that the current allegations will lead to a broader discussion about why fireworks are legal in the first place.
