To the editor: Many of us in the Columbia River Gorge region believed that while the crazy shutdown politics of Washington D.C. played out, our own representative Greg Walden, having come from an environment of regional cooperation and partnership, would in fact reach above partisan diatribe and do what was good for the country in the long run. Apparently not.
To the editor: One of my life missions is to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults. Here in the gorge, so many children are struggling and I wish I could fill all of their needs. Every child deserves a safe, loving and permanent home.
To the editor: As members of the House Higher Education and Workforce Development Sub-Committee we have been closely involved with higher education structural realignment.
To the editor: Mr. Walden, you presume in some way to represent me, a citizen of your district who has voted in 29 congressional elections. Further, having taken your oath of office you presume to act as a lawmaker of the United States.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) How many times do the voters have to turn down this darn pool? We can’t afford more taxes. I drove around town and the houses with the vote ‘yes’ signs look pretty well off, perhaps additional taxes aren’t a big deal to them, but it sure is to my working class family.
To the editor: (Edited for length. Election letter limit is 250 words.) A latté a week, that would be nice. But my fortunes are such that I wisely limit my caffeine imbibement to that which I prepare myself. That way, the cost is more on the order of 15 to 25 cents per cup instead of $5, and my budget is maintained at a less than minimal indebtedness.
To the editor: To vote for or against this latest pool bond should be easy. What makes a community great? Quality public schools.
To the editor: After reading the latest of several articles from RaeLynn Ricarte concerning the MCMC trial, it is quite obvious that the Chronicle could not have found a more biased person to report the proceedings.
To the editor: So many end-time events are taking place today, even the nonbelievers realize catastrophe is just around the corner.
To the editor: Fall is such an enjoyable time of year. Too bad our air quality suffers due to backyard burning of leaves and debris. See for yourself by overlooking the city from any vantage point.
To the editor: I agree with all the editorials supporting the pool. It is a nice project and important to a select group of citizens. I may have missed the business plan presentation about how to pay for the pool without it coming directly out of the tax payers pockets.
To the editor: On Oct. 16 I was involved in a traumatic incident in the town of Wishram, Washington. This incident was a result of my duties as a police officer for the City of The Dalles.
To the editor: Please vote yes for the pool bond.
To the editor: I understand that we will be offered an opportunity to subsidize a bond issue by the Northern Wasco County Parks and Recreation District for a new pool facility. We already subsidized the Design LLC (Google) facility for the next 15 years. Were you offered a subsidy by the city or the county to expand anything you were doing?
To the editor: I know that right now many people are deciding whether or not to vote for a new community pool. As people make this decision I would like to share how much the pool has meant to me while growing up in The Dalles.
