To the editor: We would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire community for the support and words of encouragement over the past few days. Losing our business to a fire is a big loss not only to us, but also to the town of Wasco and all of Sherman County.
To the editor: After reading this week’s Crosstalk, I would just like to challenge RaeLynn to do an in-depth story about how the Affordable Care Act has helped the people of this community.

To the editor: I have heard the story of a group of teens who stood by while a disabled man drowned. People are outraged and offended. Who could do such a thing? Why do people behave this way?
