Letters to the Editors


Letter to the editor: Need gun safety

To the editor: I was extremely disappointed to read in The Chronicle that the Wasco County Commissioners are opposed to common sense gun control measures that are expected to be proposed in the Oregon Legislature.

Letter to the editor: Waste of time

To the editor: I have found the letters about the oil trains and the city council fairly interesting. I just have one question, why is the city council wasting its time? Doesn’t it have more important, and useful, things to look into?

Letter to the editor: Rand was fraud

To the editor: In her last ’Crosstalk’ offering, Ms. Ricart chose to sing the praises of Ayn Rand. Rand became a darling of the Tea Party who embraced her pseudo philosophy which sought to justify the privilege of the wealthy and demonize not only the lazy, undeserving poor, but the working middle-classes as well.

Letter to the editor: Cat burglar

To the editor: I must express my disappointment about the past few months with a certain “Cat Burglar” in my neighborhood. I help to take care of a veteran who lives with me and on Dec. 16, 2014, his companion cat that walked around the block with him went missing. Of course we thought he had just strayed away but a few weeks later another cat at the residence went missing, A week later another.

Letter to the editorial: Overview of society

To the editor: After 50 years of watching and listening to people from all over the world, I notice one thing: There are people who can deal with problems, people who can’t, and some that are border cases.

Letter to the editor: Good movies... and bad

To the editor: I recently sent a letter to Columbia Cinemas, telling them a big “Thank you” for their cooperation with YouthThink to offer the free Saturday family movies. This is a great way to give families a fun activity together while benefiting the community with the canned food donations. So I wanted to thank Columbia Cinemas for supporting youth and families in this area.

Letter to the editor: Respect for laws

To the editor: What’s wrong with this picture? If you illegally cross the border of North Korea, you’ll get 12 years of hard labor and you won’t be sending any money home to your family. If you illegally cross the Afghanistan border, you get shot, and you won’t be sending any money back to your family.

Letter to the editor: Train safety

To the editor: Although I was unable to participate in The Dalles City Council’s decision of Jan. 26 calling for increased safety oversight of oil trains, I wish the record to note my support for this resolution.

Letter to the editor: Too fast

To the editor: I am 13-years-old and I am concerned about the speeding on Thompson Street. I have two little brothers that like to play in the yard but they can’t because of the people driving so fast.

Letter to the editor: Making music

To the editor: I am a recent participant in the Oregon all state band. I would just like to say, if you are in a local band, that working to all state band would be a great goal. It is a amazing experience where you can join others that take music seriously and create the most beautiful music.

Letter to the editor: ‘Blunderland’

To the editor: Although I’m not an author, I somehow feel compelled to compose a realistic children’s story that would reflect the ways, nature and mannerisms of our political figures in the nation’s capital. How the Congress and Senate achieve great goals by thoughtfully evaluating each bill that comes their way…and how the president presides over this satin-smooth scene. My title would be “Malice in Blunderland.”

Letter to the editor: Honesty thanked

To the editor: I wish to express my appreciation for the crowd at a recent ball game. I take tickets for the Sherman Huskies and try to be there an hour before game time.

Letter to the editor: Fond memory

To the editor: Hello I would like to share a little story about some folks we met at Multnomah Falls last week, Jan 21st to be exact.

Letter to the editor: Better coverage

To the editor: The Chronicle’s front-page story January 23 covering an interested person’s public records request concerning Wasco County’s decision to leave the North Central Public Health District was enlightening and truly newsworthy. However, one has to ask why it took an interested person’s effort to generate the Chronicle’s reporting of the records involved.
