Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: More funding, not less

To the editor: Bill Gates recently stated, "…of all things that could kill more than 10 million people around the world, the most likely is an epidemic stemming from either natural causes or bioterrorism."

Letter to the Editor: GOP breaks promises

To the editor: Trump promised that he would not cut Medicaid. Republican House and Senate representatives promised to replace Obamacare with something better—they didn’t say they had in mind to make huge cuts to Medicaid and to throw many millions of us off health care insurance.

Letter to the Editor: ‘Not Real News’ fan

To the editor: I really like your “Not Real News” section. Keep it up!

Letter to the Editor: Walden: Pay attention

To the editor: Yes, I am a progressive liberal. I can’t recall a policy I’ve agreed with Senator Ferrioli on…until now. Senator Ferrioli just voted to extend health care to all children in Oregon, including those without documentation, because it made economic sense but also because it was the right thing to do from a societal aspect. Mr. Walden would do well to pay attention to the actions just demonstrated by Senator Ferrioli and try, just once, to stand up and do the right thing whether or not it’s popular with his party and his donors.

Letter to the Editor: Trump violations

To the editor: When President Donald Trump met in secret with Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit he did not have independent witnesses or his own national security team present. It lasted for more than two hours and afterward it appeared that President Trump agreed with Putin's assertion that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election. What else was discussed?

Letter to the Editor: Not flawed

To the editor: In response to Scott Haanstad's letter to the editor commenting that it was a flawed decision to display fireworks in The Dalles on the Saturday prior to the 4th of July, I completely disagree.

Letter to the Editor: What’s been done?

To the editor: So, what's been done to protect us from the next Russian attack?!

Letter to the Editor: Be an activist!

To the editor: "What unites us is stronger than our differences,” The Dalles Chronicle, Sunday July 2, 2017: It is ludicrous for Ms. Wilhelm to say she's an activist yet claim resisters are not. Protest is what made America! Resistance IS productive.

Letter to the Editor: Pool not open

To the editor: Why in the world was The Dalles public pool closed on July 4th? Why were our kids and adults denied the recreation and the cooling benefits of the new public pool on this national holiday?

Letter to the Editor: Flawed decision

To the editor: Sometimes decisions are made with the best intentions but turn out to be incorrect and flawed. Take The Dalles Independence Day fireworks display having been changed to Saturday, July 1, and not the actual signing date of July 4th.

Letter to the Editor: Harm to kittens

To the editor: This is a letter to the stupid, cruel individual who dumped innocent kittens on Highway 216 on approximately 23 June. They did not stand a chance. I cannot express the anger and hurt I feel for these young animals.

Letter to the Editor: Wonderful article

To the editor: I appreciated the article by Neita Cecil featuring the talented Austin Schulz. I had the opportunity to serve as Austin’s band director for several years at Chenowith Middle School and Wahtonka High School. Austin’s “McGyver” instincts were evident when our Eagle Pep Band was en route to the district basketball tournament in Pendleton to provide some musical support for the basketball team.

Letter to the Editor: Barking problem

To the editor: Dog owners of The Dalles must acknowledge the impact their dogs have on everyone's quality of life. I have lived near the middle school for several months and have been hopelessly disappointed by the number of neighborhood dogs who bark and howl at all hours of the day and night.

Letter to the Editor: Wonderful gift

To the editor: I was so pleased to see over 60 students from The Dalles area trying out for the Missoula Children's Theatre.

Letter to the Editor: Origin of weeds

To the editor: What, according to Scripture, did the Creator create? He created Heaven and Earth and the laws therein. Everything producing according to its kind. So why the weeds, and where do they come from?
