Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: A cycle of seasons

To the editor: Did you ever feel that at least in our climate, spring usually begins some time before the official date of March 20?

Letter to the Editor: Happy Independence Day!

To the editor: I’m totally in favor of the plans for a gala fireworks display and celebration on Independence Day.

Letter to the Editor: A nasty smell

To the editor: Perhaps Pat Jones of Mosier needs to live a little closer to the Amerities plant (as should I) to see if the creosote odor is a good smell that’s good for the city of The Dalles.

Letter to the Editor: State-controlled

To the editor: The state-controlled media is becoming famous for suspending reality when covering news of the White House. Do you ever wonder who is in charge? Wait! Don’t look over there. Ignore that man behind the oval office curtain. It’s not what you think. Just because the state-controlled media gets airborne when he says jump doesn’t mean we should jumpstart our brains then jump to conclusions.

Letter to the Editor: Doll furniture needed

To the editor: I work and live in The Dalles. I enjoy a number of hobbies, the company of my friends and family and the love of my pets.

Letter to the Editor: Thank you, Stone

To the editor: Mission: Provide an opportunity to introduce or reintroduce our military wounded combat veterans to the outdoors.

Letter to the Editor: Not on Republican platform

To the editor: In response to the story concerning the GOP supporting gay marriage in The Chronicle on March 11, this is not true. The Republican platform does not endorse gay marriage. The Dorchester is not a Republican-sponsored event where this straw ballot occurred.

Letter to the Editor: Taking a stand

To the editor: I admire Nevaeh Gomez Barajas for taking a stand for her generation and speaking out on an issue that has frustrated youth in this area for a long time. Three siblings can be a lot of work for an eldest child, so having a place to go to enjoy being an 11-year-old is important for healthy development. I myself grew up in the Columbia Gorge area and came across the same frustration when I was that age.

Letter to the Editor: Thank you, basketball athletes

Now to my point, I would like to recognize and thank the girls and boys basketball teams for their great examples during each game and season just ended. They always played their best, gave it all they had and were at the top of sportsmanship conduct.

Letter to the Editor: Misrepresented

To the editor: On the Oregonian Article,”"The Wolf of The Dalles” We don’t have a wolf in The Dalles, the whole headline misrepresents the situation.

Letter to the Editor: Faux news

To the editor: Glen Summers’ letter titled Fabrication Nation got the initials right but they could just as easily stand for Faux News.

Letter to the Editor: Valid concerns about wolves

To the editor: Reading Ms. Lutje’s letter of 3/11/14, it‘s clear she has no idea of what‘s involved in getting a good steak to her table. She has a business far removed from ranching. Most cattle sold for slaughter in this part of the country are humanely killed, because inhumane treatment would affect the meat quality the ranchers try hard to insure so that we may all enjoy a good meal. Her idea of a pack of wolves running loose in ranch country is naive. Example: What would happen if she and her dog out for a walk met a pack of dogs, each weighing 100-150 pounds, who decided her dog was appetizing?

Letter to the Editor: Renters have rights to

To the editor: A single, asthmatic mother of three lived across the street. She told the landlord about skunks under the house, he refused to do anything. They moved, lived here and there with relatives. It was too disruptive to the kids. She came back. The first night back, the friend gets a call from the 6- year-old “Mom was coughing but now she’s not.” She had died of an asthma attack.

Letter to the Editor: Downtown is dying

To the editor: I recently I had the opportunity to hang out with an old friend. We decided to walk downtown The Dalles. We quickly learned that there is not much at all to do downtown.

Letter to the Editor: Fabrication nation

To the editor: In the past I wrote that political lying in America has become pandemic. It is worse than that.
