OUR VIEW: Camp host a good idea

Morgan Lake is a cleverly hidden La Grande gem.

OUR VIEW: Officials need to heed law

The news about alleged public meetings violations by members of the Willamette Education Service District Board probably isn’t going to send shockwaves across the state.

Yet while the information can be, and often is, regulated to the non-priority list for many voters, the fact is the news of the incident is more than a bit troubling and has broader implications.


Oregon’s political divide

Much has been made of the east-west divide in Oregon politics. The battle of philosophies, to paint with a broad brush, pits eastside conservative ranchers versus westside liberal cosmopolitans, and since the ranchers are outnumbered, they lose clout in Salem, the reasoning goes.

OUR VIEW: Extension the right route for all

In terms of political and governmental debacles, voters will have a hard time finding a case that outshines the recent Cover Oregon fiasco.

OUR VIEW: Spring cleaning time

Spring begins in Northeast Oregon like a rambling wreck, in fits and starts. Some days, the sun actually packs heat. Other days, we get every possible condition postal carriers boast they haul mail through — rain, sleet, snow and hail.

OUR VIEW: Don't get caught in scams

Add this one to the list of scams perpetrated on unsuspecting Americans on, it seems, an almost monthly basis.


OUR VIEW: Tuition bill a step forward

Sure, a bias exists against community colleges. Some people say the intellectual fireworks found at a four-year school are more of a sparkler at a two-year school.


OUR VIEW: Request should be taken seriously

The City of La Grande’s efforts to improve downtown have hopefully launched a continued push to improve both the look and business atmosphere for local merchants.


OUR VIEW: Wildlife should stay wild

One of the great joys of living in Northeast Oregon is being on the edge of the wilderness.


OUR VIEW: Residents get chance to sound off on issue

How often do you attend county commissioner meetings?

Our guess is not all that often, if ever.
