BORGEN: E-edition offers subscribers added value

For those of you who have been asking to receive The Observer subscription online, today’s the day you’ve been waiting for.

OUR VIEW: Exercise your right to vote

Oregon has a reputation for innovation. The state was the first in the nation with the Bottle Bill, the Beach Bill and vote by mail.

 


OUR VIEW: Fairs help battle of the bulge

The percent of overweight children has doubled since the 1960s.

Only one in five American children consume the recommended five or more fruits and vegetables a day.


OUR VIEW: Time for a new style in Salem

Clearly there are a number of good elements to both John Turner and Greg Barreto, the two men vying in the Republican primary to win the Oregon House of Representatives District 58.


OUR VIEW: Continue pursuing tourists

When it comes to major tourist attractions, Oregon has them in abundance. 

OUR VIEW: Find one way to give back

The Boy Scouts have a motto: Do your best to be prepared for service. Each of us finds ourselves in different life situations. Some of us in these recessionary times are struggling to survive and thrive. Others of us find it easier going getting beyond the struggle to make ends meet.


OUR VIEW: Camp host a good idea

Morgan Lake is a cleverly hidden La Grande gem.

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.
