To the editor: What happened to The Dalles’ sense of pride? We are selling our parents’ home on East 11th Street. Even though it is for sale, we still water and mow the yard. With the extreme hot weather it is difficult, but not impossible. It only takes a small amount of time to weed and water.
To the editor: Wake up people! If you have a large dog in your neighborhood eating your household cats and killing or injuring your dog, you would have the animal removed.
To the editor: The first annual community worship service/free barbeque held at Sorosis Park as part of the Ft. Dalles Days activities exceeded my expectations. I had hoped for an attendance of 200, but was amazed that over 300 attended both activities.
To the editor: The Chronicle reprinted a typical editorial cartoon illustrating the popular media bias against firearms. The cartoon, using an extremely over simplified view of statistics, followed the agenda so popular with those oft-labeled “Liberals.”
To the editor: I’m mystified by Roz Luther’s letter of July 10 concerning the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby. She describes it as “another chink in the armor of contraceptive opportunities…” Huh?
To the editor: On behalf of all the families we have cared for and those who will come into our care in the future, we want to thank Maggie and Johna at Columbia Gorge Insurance for all the hard work they exerted last Friday on behalf of Providence Hospice of the Gorge Children’s Grief Groups.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) About a year ago I decided I wouldn’t write to The Chronicle because, even though several citizens expressed agreement with my views, nothing changed at City Hall. Our leaders continue to be incapable of sorting out which projects are absolutely necessary from those that are truly needed but not absolutely necessary and those which simply would be nice.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) In the summer of 1921, an incident occurred in the Hood River valley which attracted attention, making the front page of the Hood River News, the Portland Oregonian and a Boise Idaho newspaper.
To the editor: Banning skateboarding on all city streets is impractical. The reckless actions of a few skaters should not mean that all skaters be banned from city streets. Portland’s City Ordinance 20.12.205 is an example of a safe alternative, allowing skaters and motorists to share the streets.
To the editor: Animal cruelty and neglect are serious, senseless crimes and almost always lead to child abuse or domestic violence.
To the editor: Butch Hert has done it again. This last weekend he put on an amazing baseball tournament for our 13-15 year old Babe Ruth players here in The Dalles.
To the editor: I just wanted to give a warning to anyone using their debit card at a drive up fast food restaurant. Don’t! Once you hand the card to someone at the pay window, and you can’t see what they are doing with it; it can be copied and used.
To the editor: First a shout out to the committee that raised firework funds for our city and the businesses that contributed to this awesome occasion. Could this be a start up of rebuilding our city? I hope so, it was spectacular.
To the editor: On July 4, a fire brewed out of control on Weimer Ranch/Thompson Properties on Fivemile Road. The fire had burned up to 100 acres of this year’s wheat crop.
To the editor: (Edited for 400-word length limit.) Do you think our water and sewer rates are way too high and completely out of line with other eastern Oregon cities? If you believe this, you are right.
