By capitalizing Chinook in ODFW's Weekly Recreational Reports the paper honors the cultural heritage of all Native Americans, while the Director of ODFW continues to disrespect all people by refusing to reference Chinook salmon as a proper noun. His continued refusal is a racial slur and by failing to correct the problem he characterizes himself as a racist.
My eternal thanks to The Dalles Chronicle, Bill Lackner
You are doing your job. I applaud your support of recreational enthusiasts. I guess you referenced the Associated Press Styles book.
The problem is ODFW's Roy Elicker and Governor Kitzhaber. The fact that ODFW and Roy Elicker have refused to correct the misuse of Chinook constitutes a racial slur. And the Governor hides in his palace refusing to answer letters to him. By their own actions they characterize themselves as racist.
A few strokes on a computer keyboard is all it takes to correct their bigotry and issue will go away, but they refuse to engage in proactive steps to end bigotry.
I do not for the use of user names. Thanks for your response, Bill Lackner
Bigotry and racism begins and ends with language. All of us are familiar with racial slurs but fail to recognize the seemingly innocuous misuse of proper nouns when describing ethnic or cultural diversity. Such is the case when Director of ODFW, Roy Elicker and Governor Kitzhaber refused to respect the cultural diversity of Native Americans and others by referring to, "Chinook", with a common noun in state agency sponsored literature. i.e. ODFW's weekly recreational reports and other agency reports.”

We will meet on 05-28 Tue 18:30 pm for the Driftwood Library for a 1 ½ hour lecture on Dungeness and red rock crabs. The Driftwood library is located in the City Building on the 2nd floor across the street from Burger King.
We will meet on 05-29 Wed 09:00 am to crab along the north shore of Siletz Bay. Park between Moe’s and the Pavilion on SW 51 ST. We begin crabbing from the North shore of Siletz Bay at 09:00 am. We suggest using the Crab Max folding crab traps that we sell for 30.00 ea or use your own folding crab traps, crab pot or ring but the larger crab traps are inefficient for this application. Each crabber over the age of 14 will need a shellfish license, a pair of gloves, folding crab traps, crab measure, a 5 gallon bucket and a large package of chicken legs for bait. Bill the CrabMan
