To the editor: The American people have got to pay more attention to President Trump! We are his employers, not employees.
To the editor: Oregon’s mighty District 2 is the seventh largest in the nation, and makes up more than two-thirds of our entire state. Congressman Greg Walden was first elected to represent us in 1998 following 10 years in the Oregon Legislature and six years as Representative Denny Smith’s chief of staff in the United States Congress.
To the editor: I want to give a special THANK YOU to everyone who worked so hard and gave so much to make our Mid-Columbia Senior Center Uplifting Elevator Project a rousing success. The contributions and cooperation from this community has been astonishing.
To the editor: We would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all of the firefighters that were at the Dallesport Industrial Park fire last week.
To the editor: As military leaders, corporate leaders, members of Congress, and countless others of all political persuasions denounce the violence, racism, hatred and intolerance of alt-right/neo-Nazi/white supremacy/KKK demonstrators in Charlottesville last weekend, there are a few voices not speaking out with convincing conviction.
To the editor: In 1933, one of the most civilized and technologically advanced democracies in the world made the transition from democracy to one-party rule.
To the editor: Let me cut to the chase. Constituents in Oregon District 2 are fully aware that Representative Greg Walden has sold out to corporate interests and the chaotic Trump administration as evidenced not only through his voting record and the corporate campaign donations he receives, but also because he was the chief architect of the failed disastrous health care bill.
To the editor: Let’s get one thing out of the way: President Trump is a racist! You may or may not care if the president is a racist but that does not change the reality that he is one.
To the editor: I just finished reading your latest editorial “Crosstalk” rant against liberals and how they are responsible for the failure of Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare. (“Truth Lies Behind Narrative”, August 8, 2017). After eight years of promising to repeal it, Republicans were unable to get anything passed. They themselves own that failure.
To the editor: In response to the “concerned citizens” letter regarding immigration and NORCOR (Northern Oregon Regional Correctional Facilities), I would like to clarify a few of the concerns that are being raised by this group.
To the editor: This week (August 13-19) is National Health Center Week, and we are proud to be part of the Gorge’s own community health center, One Community Health.
To the editor: RaeLynn Ricarte writes, in her column, “The present high level of deception would not be possible if citizens were grounded in the principles of the U.S. Constitution and truly understood how a republican form of government was supposed to work.” In a republic, the supreme power is held by the people. Our representatives do not supplant us; and politicians are not demigods.
To the editor: A man engaged me about my “judging” letters at the Farmer’s Market here in town. Why must I judge other people’s religion? Why? All men are entitled to hear that there is just one truth.
To the editor: Why does the police force not enforce the road laws. I have seen people run stop signs, speed, nearly cause accidents and the police turn a blind eye, every time.
To the editor: Here’s a letter that I’d like to share with the community: Dear friend, I wanted you to know how good it was to meet you, and how much I wish to support you, now more than ever.
