Letters to the editor for February 10, 2014

Publication does disservice to local communities

To the Editor.

You published a 2014 “Reference guide to health and wellness for Northeast Oregon.”

I believe you did a disservice to the communities of Elgin and Union by not mentioning their acclaimed health clinics. Both are operated by special health districts and staffed with medical doctors and nurse practitioners. They see patients of all ages, take all insurances, and contrary to some rumors are accepting new patients.

I would appreciate one of your staff providing information similar to that published about other medical clinics for people to cut out and insert in their reference guide.

Skiing with dogs on leashes can be godsend — except on cliff

Saturday was the first time I cross country skied without Finnegan in 15 years. If he were still walking this earth, he would have stayed home by the fire, but the lucky Lab died shortly after a full summer of swimming in Wallowa Lake.

MY VOICE: Wyden’s bill not a compromise

The Dec. 23, 2013, Observer’s editorial addressing Sen. Ron Wyden’s proposed forest bill for Oregon and California land lacked an accurate, historical overview of the importance of federal lands on Oregon’s rural economy. 

Letters to the editor for February 3, 2014

New health care system helping those in need

To the Editor:

There has been a lot of talk about the new health care people are getting now that ObamaCare is with us. The critics say that people will be “overconsuming” health services. However, I know a young person who has had an ongoing health issue for more than a year. As of the first of this year, he will be able to afford to get it attended to.

DORY'S DIARY: Gazing at old photos causes tears to flow

Today Monday, Feb. 3, is my oldest son’s 65th birthday.  Happy birthday, son!
