Letter to the editor: Recycle your batteries

To the editor: Your_letter: I recently phoned The Dalles Disposal and Hood River Garbage Service to enquire about small battery recycling (AAs, AAAs, Cs, Ds., etc.). I was told batteries are not recyclable and I should “just throw them in the garbage.” We have done some research and found that batteries are recyclable and there is an option for household battery recycling in Wasco, Sherman and Hood River counties.

Letter to the editor: Judicial irony

To the editor: The Supreme Court has made another chink in the armor of contraceptive opportunities for employees. They saw the Constitution one way, but the women judges, who also believe in our Constitution, saw the issue differently. Ironic that none of those men have been pregnant when they didn’t wish to be. It’s not a coincidence that the women were appointed by Democrat presidents.

Letter to the editor: Leave buses room

To the editor: Today as I was at the dock admiring the Queen of the West cruise ship I couldn’t help but notice a small pickup parked where the tour buses park.

Letter to the editor: Gutted environmental laws

To the editor: If you want to raise a herd of cattle you don’t bring in a steer to service your heifers. That is my personal advice to Dave Berger of Lyle who sounds like he is tired of breathing Amerities toxic fumes.

Letter to the editor: Heartbreaking

To the editor: In January, Department of Homeland Security solicited bids for vendor contracts to handle 65,000 unaccompanied alien children.

Letter to the editor: Support critical

To the editor: Thank you for your thoughtful editorial on July 1 (“The roar of promises”) about the Confluence Project’s Celilo Park art installation by Maya Lin. As the new executive director of the Confluence Project, I can tell you that community support is critical to the success of our work.

Letter to the editor: Our declaration

To the editor: Our Declaration “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Thomas Jefferson

Letter to the editor: Laughing at ‘Tuna’

To the editor: Sunday afternoon, I attended the matinee performance of “Red, White and Tuna.” Dennis Morgan and Dave Owens were the only two cast members. Each did numerous parts. They were fabulous!

Letter to the editor: About respect

To the editor: This letter is in response to Bill Davis’ letter in The Dalles Chronicle, June 24. He asks if Caucasians would be angry if the Washington D.C. football team changed its name to the the Pale Faces. He then mentions ‘’thin skinned’’ and political correctness. I’m not sure why he did not write Washington Redskins.

Letter to the editor: Wolf concerns

To the editor: I read Ms. Lutje’s letter Thursday and came away with grave concerns about her apparent ability to shrug off the concerns of area ranchers about wolf attacks. Not only did she question why the attack on a Sherman County rancher family’s cow was front page news, she sarcastically suggested that Maupin rancher Keith Nantz and others “help them practice some of the cowboy self-reliance.”

Letter to the editor: What’s in a name?

To the editor: A recent letter called opposition to the name of the Washington Redskins overly sensitive. He asked would others be insulted if the team were called “Pale Faces.” He seemed to think Redskins was only a physical description. No. Redskins is not and was not.

Letter to the editor: Great play place

To the editor: I love Sorosis Park because even when it’s crowded, the path around its perimeter never is. The layout seems to handle many people doing many things: walking, jogging, playing disc golf, enjoying the playground, barbecuing, celebrating birthdays, lovers lying about on the lawns, Little League baseball games, big league baseball games, soccer, sitting on benches watching the clouds play around Mt. Hood, or the river shimmer in the sun.

Letter to the editor: Wolf hysteria at Chronicle

To the editor: I am writing this letter to let you know that I take great exception to the recent publication of a couple of articles — “County selects wolf panel” wherein I am misquoted, which then led to Mr. Nantz’ cheap shot in the article “Cow suffers attack from wolf.” Both of these articles were written by Ms. RaeLynn Ricarte.

Letter to the editor: Call the DEQ

To the editor: Dear fellow citizens, if you have been affected by the chemical odors discharged by the Creosote Plant at the east end of The Dalles, as many of us have, please contact Oregon DEQ

Letter to the editor: The lucky ones

To the editor: Waiting for take-out at KFC, I chatted with a gentleman who had a prosthetic device as a right arm and an empty sleeve instead of a left arm. He told me when I asked that he had lost the limbs in 1968 during the Vietnam War. I told him that my husband fought I Korea and a brother in Iwo Jima, and said, “But they were luckier than you.” He said, Oh, I was lucky.”
