To the editor: In a December 27 New York Times article titled ‘The Fear Economy,” economist/columnist Paul Krugman discussed why corporate profits in 2013 soared to record highs, relative to GDP, despite lingering unemployment and weak economic growth. It was a wonderful insight into the workings of the labor market - and how conflicts of interest between wages and profits can play themselves out.
To the editor: As a substitute teacher in our school district, knowing many of the kids like I do, here’s Mr. Smith’s two cents on our choices for a new mascot, offered from a radio announcer’s point of view:
To the editor: “Four score and seven years ago…” so said America’s first and most famous Republican president, Abraham Lincoln. Both President Lincoln and Congressman Greg Walden have experienced similar woes.
To the editor: I was going to write a snarky remark about a recent letter. It was about the writer’s views of the failure of mankind and a vengeful Christian God.
To the editor: Moved to The Dalles in 1958-1960 to work at the new Harvey Aluminum factory. Lived in a boarding house on Chenowith owned by the Richardsons. Finley Richardson ran the local bus.
To the editor: (Edited for length.) I recently read the choices that are being considered for The Dalles High mascot and was considering each for its merits.
Endangered: Over 70,000 acres range and farmland, wheat lands, wildlife habitat centered between Deschutes and John Day scenic rivers: raptors, eagles, hunting, Journey Through Time, Oregon scenic by-way, historic western towns Antelope and Shaniko. Get informed and speak out.
To the editor: I would like to correct myself concerning my last letter. The issue is that we are living in the last days before Jesus’ second coming. In Matthew 24:12, Jesus says that lawlessness will abound and the love of many will wax cold (grow cold).
To the editor: Happened to be reading the suggested names for the high school mascot. Since The Dalles is sometimes referred to as the end of the Oregon Trail, has anyone suggested a mascot called The Pioneers? There may be others with that name but are they somewhere that we care about?
To the editor: To those wonderful local businesses that helped me through troubled times I thank you so much. The kindness in this community is overwhelming. I have always enjoyed helping others, so to have it come back to me really brought back my belief in “ pay it forward.”
To the editor: I just wanted to say what a wonderful job the Salvation Army has been doing with their store these past few weeks.
To the editor: As co-advisor of the Dry Hollow Student Council, I would like to thank the people of The Dalles for the generosity they have shown in helping our student council on the many service projects they’ve done this year.
To the editor: We just have to let this area know what a wonderful, talented staff they have on the fourth floor at Mid-Columbia Medical Center.
To the editor: As many of you may know YOUTHTHINK has brought the Challenge Day program to our area youth for the past eight years.
To the editor: For the first time, the Mid-Columbia Senior Center decorated a Tree of Memories for the MCMC Festival of Trees and what a marvelous experience it was!
