Save Ag-Timber Parade

In today’s litigious society, it’s no surprise that La Grande’s biggest parade of the year, the Ag-Timber Parade, is in danger of going away.

Drill needs more thought

Being prepared is a great thing. In days past, schools had duck-and-cover drills that saw students ducking beneath desks in response to the Cold War and the possibility of nuclear attack. And ever since the Columbine High School attack of 1999 in Littleton, Colo., schools across the country have refined their emergency management plans.

The call of duty

Many of us find it difficult to serve our communities. We struggle with time away from our families and our favorite TV shows.

Imagine, then, how much more of a challenge it is to serve our country, especially in a time when we are fighting a global war on terror.


Elgin FBLA wins state

Congratulations to the juggernaut that is the Elgin High School FBLA program and adviser Peggy Anthony.

Elgin won first place Chapter of the Year for 2A schools for the 21st consecutive year earlier this month in Portland. A community parade organized by local firefighters, the Elgin Stampede and parents greeted the team as it returned to town.


EOU needs long-term solution

Imagine La Grande without a college.

Good will prevail

Monday’s Patriot Day bombing at the Boston Marathon shook nerves throughout the country, including those of us 3,000 miles away in Northeast Oregon.

The cowardly act, whether it was perpetrated by terrorists or just a sole madman, was despicable. At last report, three people had died and at least 150 were injured. 


Postal debt remains concern

Come rain, sleet, snow or hail, nasty dogs and Saturdays, the Postal Service delivers. And now, thanks to Congress, there’s no worry about interrupting the old routines of picking up bills on Saturdays. There’s also no worry about making changes anytime soon, no matter how much dollars and sense it makes.

Bus crash lawsuit frivolous

The drive on Interstate 84 over the Blue Mountains in winter is often a challenge. Snow, ice, wind, fog: all are elements drivers accustomed to the stretch prepare to face. No matter how vigilant the Oregon Department of Transportation is, there will be occasions when snow covers the roadway, or even black ice, and drivers must exercise extreme caution.


Counties should vote on cougars

Oregon is divided by more than just wet side and dry side, Republican and Democrat, rich and poor.


Promises, promises

Think of it as having oil on your property and not being able to drill.

Consider the numbers: More than 48 percent of Union County and 58 percent of Wallowa County is national forest. Yet due to a reduction in timber harvest, and with jobless rates approaching 10 percent, the counties are struggling for revenue.
