OUR VIEW: Our veterans deserve to be helped

With the recent Veterans Affairs scandal taking up so much of the news cycle nationally the last few weeks, the front page story in the June 16 La Grande Observer regarding Vietnam veteran Donald Remick was significant in a number of ways.

OUR VIEW: Oregon puts name on track map

So, track and field does not capture the nation’s imagination the same as baseball, apple pie, talk show hosts ranting about the issue of the day or World Cup soccer.

MY VOICE: Where do we live and why?

I saw the picture of a driveway and the headlines about someone shooting cows — the picture suggested the cows were in the driveway. I read about a sheriff’s investigation: cut fence — bicyclists or hikers — lost cattle that couldn’t be found, a man devoted to returning land to its natural state, the property of cattlemen trying to make a go of a living lost to feedlots. 

OUR VIEW: Focus on fire safety measures

If Oregon residents were searching for a sign the summer fire season is here, they saw firsthand evidence last week in the central part of the state when a wildfire erupted in the Bend area. 

OUR VIEW: Union-Cove repeat is impressive

Winning one state title is amazing. Winning two or more in a row, however, is an even bigger accomplishment.

As a past shelter board member, a participant in the locating and facilitating the building of the actual shelter itself and the person who came up with the name Shelter From the Storm, a line from a Bob Dylan song by the way, I think I can speak to the history involved. 

Saying goodbye to a great journalist

A fact of life about the small town newspaper business, and probably any business, is change is inevitable. 

OUR VIEW: Questions remain over swap

It should be of no surprise to Americans who strive to review current events through a prism of objectivity that the main point behind the controversy now raging regarding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been lost.
