To the editor: Following the Lehman banking debacle of 2008, the government sponsored bailout of Too Big to Fail banks only created an illusion of recovery because the bailout did not stimulate the economy. Seventy percent of the economy is consumer-driven, thus consumer spending must increase.
To the editor: Lung Force, led by the American Lung Association, is trying to get the message across to everyone, but particularly women since only one percent of women even think about lung cancer. This is what they have to say about lung cancer:
To the editor: This letter was written by an unknown author and I ask that you print it: “Dear Friend: How are You? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me, too. I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you – and I waited.
To the editor: Good for you, Mr. President. I am not a Democrat but I am proud of my president! You did the right thing for our immigrants and America! I served as a pastor for many years and was so tired of the quibbling.
To the editor: I read an article recently about the plight of Native Americans who live and fish on the Columbia River. Since this issue is of concern to all people of the Mid-Columbia, I thought I would share my views about it. By living on land that was taken from Native Americans, and by utilizing resources taken from that land, we are accessories-after-the fact of a colossal crime. The destruction of their culture and their identity as a people compounds that crime into the stratosphere.
To the editor: Everyday when we travel in our cars, stay safe and warm in our homes, buy food at the store, or use medicine, we benefit from the knowledge that science has provided us.
To the editor: On Monday, Nov. 17, Dutch Bros. had a huge sale. All drinks, all day, $1. Of course, the lines were very long. We all waited our turn, except for a truck load of young men who cut in front of four patiently waiting customers.
To the editor: If the majority of U.S. citizens wanted the House and the Senate to work with the president to repair and rehabilitate America’s decline brought on by “The Obama Nation,” Democrats would have been elected. And still the Commander-in-Chief doesn’t get it.
To the editor: The Dalles truly is a great place to live and work. As the executive director of the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation I get to see, firsthand some of this city's best and brightest!
To the editor: We, in Eastern Oregon, have a unique opportunity to affect the biggest threat to the future of our children and life around us: Global warming. We are all familiar with the scientists’ predictions.
To the editor: After reading Donna Quick Polka’s letter, I have two things to say: 1) Your encyclopedia must be very old and 2) if you don’t like cannabis, don’t use it.
To the editor: I would like to thank the community for donating to the United Nations International Children Emergency Fund (UNICEF) during Dry Hollow's 2014 trick or treat for UNICEF. This year we raised $705 for children in need. Your donations will be used for child protection, child survival, basic education and gender equality, emergencies and humanitarian action. Once again, thank you for donating!
To the editor: The Northern Wasco County Parks and Recreation District was wrong in firing Scott Green without cause. I'm asking everyone to show up at their next meeting on Wednesday November 19th at 5:30 p.m. at the Parks and Rec office, 114 Washington St. Please show up to support Scott, we need to make the board accountable for their actions.
To the editor: I did not expect President Obama to accept his and his Party’s trouncing in the mid-term election graciously or with respect. With his usual egoist attitude and normal arrogance he responded with threats to launch his concept of immigration reform and to renovate America to suit himself.
To the editor: Voters are told to vote, cast their ballot. It is their responsibility to do so but, without having studied the issues, they should stay home. For example, voting yes for the use of marijuana when they do not know the devastating results.
