LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Friday, April 18


Oregon strong: State needs its own holiday

Monday, friend Tom will be in Boston helping the Commonwealth of Massachusetts celebrate its very own holiday, Patriots Day, by running until he is a bundle of wet rags.
Yes, Tom is running the marathon. It’s 26.2 miles of misery. Or if you’re our age, 56, insanity. This year’s misery is particularly poignant for Tom and 35,999 of his closest marathon-running friends, for it is the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and wounded more than 250 others.


MY VOICE: Crowdfunding can bolster community

As executive director of the Northeast Oregon Economic Development District, I am constantly on the lookout for ways to support our region’s entrepreneurs and owners of existing businesses.

MY VOICE: Open primaries will encourage people to vote

While collecting signatures on Initiative Petition 31-IP-0113 to place the question of whether Union County commissioners should be elected on a nonpartisan basis on the May 2014 primary ballot, petition circulators heard voters are tired of partisanship in government, want politicians to put the interests of the community before their party’s interests, and want them to move forward to solve difficult local, state, and national economic and social issues we face today.
