Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Laughing at ‘Tuna’

To the editor: Sunday afternoon, I attended the matinee performance of “Red, White and Tuna.” Dennis Morgan and Dave Owens were the only two cast members. Each did numerous parts. They were fabulous!

Letter to the editor: About respect

To the editor: This letter is in response to Bill Davis’ letter in The Dalles Chronicle, June 24. He asks if Caucasians would be angry if the Washington D.C. football team changed its name to the the Pale Faces. He then mentions ‘’thin skinned’’ and political correctness. I’m not sure why he did not write Washington Redskins.

Letter to the editor: Wolf concerns

To the editor: I read Ms. Lutje’s letter Thursday and came away with grave concerns about her apparent ability to shrug off the concerns of area ranchers about wolf attacks. Not only did she question why the attack on a Sherman County rancher family’s cow was front page news, she sarcastically suggested that Maupin rancher Keith Nantz and others “help them practice some of the cowboy self-reliance.”

Letter to the editor: What’s in a name?

To the editor: A recent letter called opposition to the name of the Washington Redskins overly sensitive. He asked would others be insulted if the team were called “Pale Faces.” He seemed to think Redskins was only a physical description. No. Redskins is not and was not.

Letter to the editor: Great play place

To the editor: I love Sorosis Park because even when it’s crowded, the path around its perimeter never is. The layout seems to handle many people doing many things: walking, jogging, playing disc golf, enjoying the playground, barbecuing, celebrating birthdays, lovers lying about on the lawns, Little League baseball games, big league baseball games, soccer, sitting on benches watching the clouds play around Mt. Hood, or the river shimmer in the sun.

Letter to the editor: Wolf hysteria at Chronicle

To the editor: I am writing this letter to let you know that I take great exception to the recent publication of a couple of articles — “County selects wolf panel” wherein I am misquoted, which then led to Mr. Nantz’ cheap shot in the article “Cow suffers attack from wolf.” Both of these articles were written by Ms. RaeLynn Ricarte.

Letter to the editor: Call the DEQ

To the editor: Dear fellow citizens, if you have been affected by the chemical odors discharged by the Creosote Plant at the east end of The Dalles, as many of us have, please contact Oregon DEQ

Letter to the editor: The lucky ones

To the editor: Waiting for take-out at KFC, I chatted with a gentleman who had a prosthetic device as a right arm and an empty sleeve instead of a left arm. He told me when I asked that he had lost the limbs in 1968 during the Vietnam War. I told him that my husband fought I Korea and a brother in Iwo Jima, and said, “But they were luckier than you.” He said, Oh, I was lucky.”

Letter to the editor: Get over it

To the editor: If the Washington D.C. football team changed its name to the “Pale Faces” would Caucasians erupt in anger? Would they shed so many bitter tears they would need to wear galoshes?

Letter to the editor: Christians?

To the editor: Here is what some founding fathers said or wrote:

Letter to the editor: Inn on the way

To the editor: I am a semi shut-in at the age of 94 and living directly across the street from the new Marriott Fairfield Inn. I have had the enjoyment from day one of watching the building in progress. As of June 22, it appears it will soon be open for business

Letter top the editor: A professional response

To the editor: On Tuesday evening a fire started on the property immediately to the west of our home. Our heartfelt appreciation to the Mid-Columbia Fire & Rescue, Klickitat County #8 Dallesport/Murdock Fire Department, Wasco County Sheriff’s Office and The Dalles City Police for their quick response. Especially, the firefighters who not only worked to put down the fire next door but also patrolled our property for hot spots and extinguished those they found.

Letter to the editor: Find his killer

To the editor: The family of Scott Erlenbush is facing the second anniversary of his brutal murder in just a few months. They miss him in all aspects of life. Scotty was an important part of his family. He was a son, husband, brother, father, stepfather, uncle and nephew.

Letter to the editor: Life’s moments

To the editor: Last night, my wife came to me and reported that our dryer was not drying properly and was making a funny sound. Since it was 10 years old, I quickly suspected that a new dryer was in the offing, but decided to check it out anyway.

Letter to the editor: Tyranny’s counter

To the editor: There are three points I want to elaborate on, regarding the recent court ruling on same-sex marriage in Oregon, as well as ideas for those who are discontent with the ruling.
