Letter to the Editor: Outstanding care

To the editor: On the morning of Dec. 20, I experienced excruciating stomach pains.

Letter to the Editor: Good neighbors

To the editor: Just one year ago in the middle of a very severe winter, my neighborhood was challenged with a growing sense of suspicion and fear when a home was placed on the market and quickly purchased for full price by a business called Bridges to Change.

Letter to the Editor: Merkley was wrong

To the editor: Senator Merkley’s comments in his recent column “I see our responsibility and mission as legislators — and the core purpose of our Constitution — as ensuring children have safe spaces, full bellies, and good health” is not in accord with any of the articles in the U.S. Constitution.

Letter to the Editor: Clean water

To the editor: I enjoy fishing and boating on clean, healthy rivers. Greg Walden’s committee has just supported legislation (HR3043) which, if passed, would make it easier for owners and operators of hydroelectric dams to avoid complying with our nation’s Clean Water Act.
