To the editor: Linda Brown, Wasco County Clerk retired on June 30. I want to express my appreciation for Linda Brown’s loyal service to the people of Wasco County. She served over three and one-half decades and always had the interests of the people first in her mind.
To the editor: Rural Oregonians in general and East Oregonians in particular are growing increasingly dismayed by the manner in which Oregon’s legislature and Oregon’s urban dwellers have marginalized their values, demonized their lifestyle, villainized their resource-based livelihoods, and have classified them as second class citizens at best.
To the editor: Saw a pickup the other day with a bumper sticker on it that read, “Anyone but Hillary” accented with a little cross-eyed mule. Hmm. People in America are uninformed, but someone must be paying attention to all the lies she has or is putting out. That is when and if she bothers to talk to anyone. More on this later…
To the editor: Every Saturday morning farmer and craft vendors sell their goods at the City Park, on Court Street, in The Dalles. There are vegetables, fresh fruit, baked goods, nuts, wood products, jewelry, flowers, fresh meat, and more! The market opens at 9 a.m. and closes at 1 p.m.
To the editor: I was amazed and grateful for a recent effort to stop a wildfire near Heritage Landing at Deschutes State Park on Thursday, June 25. A small car fire lit off the tinder dry grasses along highway 30 just west of the bridge crossing the Deschutes river. It occurred at about 8:30 p.m.
To the editor: The frivolous audacity of The Dalles “turkey vultures” picking from your property taxes and mine.
To the editor: An investment in Rural Oregon for nearly 60 years, Outdoor School has provided high-quality, place-based science education to generations of Oregon students. Launched in 1957 in southern Oregon, Outdoor School is a tradition that has enriched and inspired over one million Oregonians.

Teachers work tirelessly
Dogs have feelings, too
To the editor: The Dalles Art Center would like to extend a big thank you to all the volunteers and supporters that helped turn the “All That Jazz” Piano Auction Event into a success. Thank you to the Education Foundation as well as Ernie Blatz and Carol Roderick for representing the D21 School Board.
To the editor: The young of the year are on the ground! I have protected fish and wildlife for 50 years in the Mid-Columbia area. As a now-retired Fish and Game officer, and while I worked, I picked up hundreds of dead wildlife off our roads, from Silver Gray Squirrels to elk.
To the editor: Thank you, Mr. Peachey, for showing justice and defending a public servant, Eric Nisley, whose purpose is to keep our town focused and intact, yet who has to contend with being badgered by those who admire and envy him to the point that their own personal satisfaction is gained by bringing up the individual’s shortcomings, which we as human beings all have.
To the editor: Because two of the three Wasco County Commissioners are former Rotarians, and District Attorney Eric Nisley and Wasco County Counsel Brad Timmons are current members of The Rotary Club of The Dalles, a reminder seems timely in light of recent activity at the courthouse: THE FOUR-WAY TEST — The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships.
