Public meetings bring their own kind of excitement

Believe it or not, not all public meetings are overflowing with excitement.

Winter Olympics inspires dreams

Nothing takes me back in time to the happiest childhood memories of watching television than the Olympics. 

MY VOICE: Letter skews facts about BMHA

This letter is in response to Jane Sabin-Davis’ letter, which appeared in the Jan. 8, 2014, paper. I cannot speak to the issue of a “hostile takeover,” so I will not deal with that issue. I am confused why Sabin-Davis and a handful of others are so adamant that the Blue Mountain Humane Association/Animal Rescue not be a rescue/high save facility. 

GARDEN GUIDE: Before you head out, get indoor plants ready

Before we put the spring growing season into full gear, this is a good time to take stock of your indoor plants.  

February is the month when you need to begin the addition of fertilizer to all your potted plants, but at half strength only.

OUR VIEW: I-5 bridge a risky proposition

The ongoing debate — some could argue dispute — regarding the proposal to build a new Interstate 5/light rail bridge over the Columbia River continues to linger in the Oregon Legislature.

Oregon is the true state for lovers

The commonwealth of Virginia has produced many fine folks: presidents George Washington, the father of our country, Thomas Jefferson, the uncle of our country, Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson and my mentor, Sandra Busey.
