MY VOICE: School district: If not now, when?

  The Willow building was built in 1924 and houses all of the district’s kindergarten students.


OUR VIEW: Keep open lines of dialogue

There’s no question that Common Core remains a polarizing topic both here in Northeast Oregon and across the nation.
And rightfully so. The standards, which are intended to ensure that students graduate from high school prepared to do college-level work, were not crafted overnight. They are a major improvement over previous standards in most states, but they remain a work in progress.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sept. 15, 2014



OUR VIEW: School scenarios startling

It’s hard to imagine our children in danger, especially in a place that is intended to prepare them for the challenges and reality of adulthood.
Sometimes, though, unspeakable realities occur in schools, as we’ve seen in the media over the past decades. 


MY VOICE: Trout Creek project completed

How fortunate Alpine Meadow golfers are to have Trout Creek right in their own back yard. Although, as frustrated lovers of the game, they sometimes view the creek as a liability, they also realize, from an irrigation standpoint, the importance of its flow.


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sept. 8, 2014


OUR VIEW: No repeat of last fall needed

Lawmakers are already streaming back to the nation’s capital but if voters expects wide-sweeping change or any kind of legislative innovation during the next session of Congress they will almost certainly be disappointed.


OUR VIEW: Judge's decision not a surprise

For at least a couple decades, Union County has been in dire need of a new courthouse.
The old courthouse had many defects that made holding trials a trial. It is, without doubt, antiquated, outdated, perhaps the most unuseful courthouse in Oregon. 

OUR VIEW: Heroic efforts save town

One fact of modern life is we need more heroes. Not just from the military, sacrificing time from their families and risking their lives to protect our freedoms in hot spots around the world. Not just from the legions of professional athletes, who perform otherworldly feats but do not always live up to our expectations when it comes to treating partners with respect or being role models.



MY VOICE: ‘Public’ has faded from higher ed

After spending most of my career working in industry, I am fortunate to have served the past decade in public higher education. What I have seen is both uplifting and heartbreaking. While wealth or intellect all but guarantees some students the opportunity of higher education, too many others face more difficult paths.
