Letter to the Editor: Republicans to blame

To the editor: I just finished reading your latest editorial “Crosstalk” rant against liberals and how they are responsible for the failure of Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare. (“Truth Lies Behind Narrative”, August 8, 2017). After eight years of promising to repeal it, Republicans were unable to get anything passed. They themselves own that failure.

Letter to the Editor: Facts behind NORCOR

Letter to the Editor: How it works

To the editor: RaeLynn Ricarte writes, in her column, “The present high level of deception would not be possible if citizens were grounded in the principles of the U.S. Constitution and truly understood how a republican form of government was supposed to work.” In a republic, the supreme power is held by the people. Our representatives do not supplant us; and politicians are not demigods.

Letter to the Editor: Finding truth

To the editor: A man engaged me about my “judging” letters at the Farmer’s Market here in town. Why must I judge other people’s religion? Why? All men are entitled to hear that there is just one truth.

Editorial: Inmates are still human beings

As the debate over housing illegal immigrants at the regional jail ebbs and flows, I have found myself wishing the conversation would broaden into treatment of inmates as a whole. Why should we, as a society, accept any human being be subjected to sub-par living conditions? No one who is locked up should be eating meat labelled “not for human consumption,” but it is happening.

Guest Column: Feds step up to claim dam authority

There’s good news for the Pacific Northwest and the federal hydro system that powers it. Key members of our congressional delegation have stepped up to emphasize the value of our dams that provide affordable, renewable hydropower, flood control, navigable waters for agriculture, recreation, business and our way of life.

Letter to the Editor: Lax road laws

To the editor: Why does the police force not enforce the road laws. I have seen people run stop signs, speed, nearly cause accidents and the police turn a blind eye, every time.

Letter to the Editor: Bless you friend

To the editor: Here’s a letter that I’d like to share with the community: Dear friend, I wanted you to know how good it was to meet you, and how much I wish to support you, now more than ever.

Letter to the Editor: No jail time

To the editor: Response to TDC Op Ed regarding NORCOR of Aug. 6. Reading the headline “Jail protests may do long term harm” stimulated me to create a somewhat different wording: “Jail sentences do long term harm to ICE detainees who have committed no criminal offense.”

Letter to the Editor: No ICE contract

To the editor: I read the Chronicle’s editorial on NORCOR and the protests and it avoided the central issue: jail vs detention. NORCOR is not a bad facility and the people who run it are not bad people, but a jail and a detention facility are not the same.

Letter to the Editor: Firemen save the day

To the editor: The Wasco City Council would like to thank all the Sherman County fire and emergency personnel for being able to confine the business fire, on Aug 3, in Wasco, to just one building.

Letter to the Editor: Thanks for support

To the editor: We would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire community for the support and words of encouragement over the past few days. Losing our business to a fire is a big loss not only to us, but also to the town of Wasco and all of Sherman County.
