OUR VIEW: Moraine should be preserved

The old T-shirt slogan couldn’t be more appropriate: “Think Globally, Act Locally.”

With all the environmental issues out there, from urban sprawl to global warming and destruction of the rain forest, from genetic engineering to habitat destruction, it’s easy to get swept away in this or that cause. 


MY VOICE: Time to reinvest in families

The issue that comes to the forefront of discussions at coffee tables, backyard barbecues, living rooms and even the office or place of work is why can’t the economy get back on its feet, and for those living in Eastern Oregon, why aren’t there more jobs or opportunities that can provide a better quality of life?


OUR VIEW: Forensics lab needs to stay put

The recent announcement that the Oregon State Police is considering all options when it comes to the agency’s Pendleton crime lab has sent shivers through the law enforcement community in Northeast Oregon.

And rightfully so.


OUR VIEW: ‘Not enough time’ is a lousy excuse

First, let’s get one thing straight. Parenting is the toughest job in the world. It requires 24/7 vigilance until the child reaches 18 and sometimes far beyond.

Second, we’re happy that local school districts are benefitting from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act Congress passed in 2010. Some families are struggling. They are at or near the poverty line and have trouble putting healthy food in the refrigerator. Kids learn better when they go to class powered by a healthy meal.


MY VOICE: The county should proceed to build

I attended Shelter From the Storm’s “family justice campus” meeting on July 31, but left with more questions than answers. 


MY VOICE: Medicare milestone should be celebrated

With all the commotion in the courts about the Affordable Care Act, it would be easy to overlook an important birthday. July 30 was the 49th anniversary of the public health insurance program that covers our nation’s seniors and people with severe disabilities. 

It’s a birthday to be celebrated by all of us.


OUR VIEW: Big ideas need full support

There’s something refreshing about seeing a full town hall meeting. Our lives are busy, so when people slow down to engage with their communities on issues of importance, it’s noteworthy — and often newsworthy.


OUR VIEW: Protecting a prime attraction

Most people who pour through La Grande on Interstate 84 have no idea the city has its very own lake.

Morgan Lake is a cleverly hidden gem just two miles out of town. Sure, the drive is difficult, two miles up a mountain on a narrow, winding gravel road that in winter can be an especially hair-raising challenge.
