Letters to the Editors


Letter to the Editor: A pathetic arguement

Mr. Fischer, you have your own brand of religion that you preach quite often. Being an atheist you try to shove your beliefs down everyone’s throat expecting everyone to follow your teachings. You believe that there is no afterlife and try to back that up factually but the realization is, you don’t know nor does anyone else.

Letter to the Editor: No consistency

After reading Bobbie Miller’s letter of Feb. 15, I have a few questions for her: First, were you equally as outraged about executive orders when Reagan signed 381 of them? Or when GWB signed 291 of them? Or is it just the 168 that our president has signed that you’re concerned about?

Letter to the Editor: Go cavalry!

To the editor: Not trying to beat an old dog to death, but there is one more reconsideration that I heard and cannot take credit for. I think it is great, a new beginning. How about Fort Dalles High School Cavalry? It displays our roots and no one that I know has this combination. Think about it.

Letter to the Editor: Maybe in a million years

I consider myself blessed to be married to the same gorgeous woman for 61 years and having raised both sons and daughters, I have more than once been perplexed by the mysterious differences in the thought processes between males and females.

Letter to the Editor: Tipping point

I have been saying for some time that I believe The Dalles is at a “Tipping Point.” Welcome to 2014, a year in which many good things will happen. Because I am optimistic about the immediate future, I will be filing this summer for a second term as your mayor. Elections will occur November 2014.

Letter to the Editor: Winning fight against coal

To the editor: Last week two significant events happened in the fight against coal exports through the Gorge.

Letter to the Editor: Priming the pump

To the editor: Since the minimum wage has once again become a popular topic of debate, here is something to consider:

Letter to the Editor: Protect religious freedom

To the editor: If we are to continue to enjoy the right to think, act upon and express our deepest beliefs according to the dictates of our own conscience — whether religious or non-religious — we must be prepared to support and protect the First Amendment of our Constitution with its guarantee of freedom of religion.

Letter to the Editor: Kind gentleman made our day

Our Tuesday lunch group had to meet on Friday because of the snow last week. We met at The Baldwin Saloon and because it was a “special day” (Valentine’s Day) we all had a drink to celebrate.

Letter to the Editor: Get involved

To the editor: Thank you so much for printing the article by Diana West entitled “Impeachment by laws, not men.” When will everyone wake up to what is happening to our wonderful nation? The news media does not cover much of what this president is doing to destroy our laws. He thinks he has executive power to take out his pen and sign into law, which he does not have the power to do.

Letter to the Editor: StRUT your stuff

To the editor: In your February 9 article on upcycling and recycling by Holly Morris, we missed a great opportunity to mention the StRUT program in The Dalles. That’s ‘Students Recycling Used Technology’. StRUT is a not for profit organization that provides technology education, resources, and recycling to schools across Oregon and Southern Washington.

Letter to the Editor: Councilor available

It has been over a year since I took the oath of office as The Dalles City Councilor Position 4. I have gained a considerable amount of knowledge regarding the workings of our local city government and I know that I have much more to learn. The experience to this date has been rewarding and I appreciate all the encouragement I have received from my supporters.

Letter to the Editor: Nice job in snow

An open letter to the City of The Dalles and Wasco County road departments: I am served by you both. Nice job on snow removal.

Letter to the Editor: 60: not so bad

I am hoping that I can use this forum to thank the many people who attended my recent birthday party at Spooky’s. I was showered with cards, gifts, and well wishes from many wonderful friends and family members.

Letter to the Editor: Doing their jobs

Last week I stepped out my front door at 6:03 a.m. and lo and behold my Oregonian paper deliverer had just stopped and he handed me my paper. I said, “Thank you so much” and he said, ‘just doing my job.”
