Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: Cougar killing is sad

To the editor: The recent killing of a cougar by police officers on Browns Creek Road is a sad incident that probably could have been avoided (Cougar killed on Browns Creek, Sept. 7, 2016).

Letter to the Editor: Change that mind

To the editor: A young man asked me a question concerning “our nature.” “Who will have their nature changed?”

Letter to the editor: Why vote?

To the editor: Why we should get out and vote in our Washington state races. Washington state is predicted to go strongly Democrat in the presidential elections. We have a very popular senate candidate in incumbent Patty Murray.

Letter to the editor: No to UP

o the editor: I want to thank the Wasco County Planning Commission for providing us with the opportunity to register our concerns about Union Pacific’s proposal to expand rail line capacity through the town of Mosier.

Letter to the editor: Fresh face

To the editor: I am very excited about supporting Pat Arnold as a candidate for Klickitat County Commissioner. Pat has been a strong supporter of all that we know and love about Klickitat County.

Letter to the editor: Good time

Good time To the editor: I want to tell you about a free concert I attended at Maryhill Winery. It was the six-person Navy Band “Country Current.” They were wonderful! The first song they did sounded very professional. No wonder as most of them played with big name musicians.

Letter to the editor: Trump myth

To the editor: Perhaps no myth about Donald Trump is more obnoxious than the notion that he is somehow a working-class hero. That banning immigration, Muslims and political correctness is going to magically improve the living standards of hard-working Americans and their families. Just how absurd is this narrative?

Letter to the editor: Divine laws

To the editor: The Bible is a fascinating book revealing Divine wisdom. It is not an exposition of human theology about God. As such it can’t be interpreted as if it were a novel or a history book. And one very unique characteristic of the Holy Bible is that it often tells the end in the beginning.

Letter to the editor: Thank you

To the editor: In the last few weeks an individual(s) has been donating various fresh food items to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank in The Dalles. This person does this anonymously, so we don’t know who you are. On behalf of our food bank staff and volunteers we want to send you a sincere thank you for what you’re doing.

Letter to the editor: Voter choice

To the editor: This is a message to voters who (even though they do not want a Clinton presidency) say they just can’t vote for Trump because he doesn’t represent all of their principles and values. They say it’s more important to be right than to win. They say they’ll vote Independent or Libertarian, which is just the same as not voting at all. Sorry to break the news, but voting Independent or Libertarian (or not voting at all) will not achieve the goals you desire.

Letter to the editor: Is this it?

To the editor: I would like all voters to consider a question regarding the upcoming presidential election: Is this really the best we can do?

Letter to the editor: Against subdivision

To the editor: When I bought my property in unincorporated Dallesport, it was with the intent that I could retire in a community with peace and quiet. I purposely bought a property of one-third acre in size so I would have some space between me and my neighbors. I bought and paid for my property in full at time of purchase in 2005.

Letter to the Editor: End-time events

To the editor: Four years ago, it came to me so strongly that that was the last normal election we would have. I could have prophesied it and felt no fear of the Lord.

Letter to the Editor: League thanks

To the editor: Now that we have concluded another summer baseball/softball season, I would like to thank all of our Babe Ruth League volunteers and our Community Sponsors.

Letter to the Editor: Trail needs help

To the editor: Last week I was looking for the Riverfront Trail and found it.
