Letters to the Editor
Hospital donation appreciated
Regarding the donation of $45,000 for Hospital Construction Project. Dr.David Webber and the Board of Directors of Wenatchee Valley Medical Center:
Why is Tribe spending money for park?To the People of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation regarding the future ownership of Osoyoos State Park. In a presentation to the Park Hearing Committee last week in Wenatchee, the Tribes proclaimed how they would operate and pay for the maintenance of the Osoyoos State Park.
Bad century for conservatives
The publisher’s “Toughweek for progressives” editorial had me smiling. I’ll guess that weprogressives will be able to weather the loss of AirAmerica. After all, we’llstill have all that wonderful left-leaning propaganda on NPR. But I’m wonderingif it ever occurred to Bill Forhan that while we liberals might not have had agood week last week (although personally none of the things he mentioned are abig deal to me) conservatives have had a bad century, and an even worsemillennium.
Content of their character causes concern
I’m writing in response toDan Dixon’s letter insinuating that I, along with other white men who didn’twant to see Sonya Sotomayor appointed to the Supreme Court now think we “arebeing turned into second class citizens.” The point in my last letter was thatS.S. is not qualified because she is an activist judge and that her decisionsas an appeallet court judge bear that out. She opposed a group of fireman in areverse discrimination law suit. But maybe, from her point of view there is nosuch thing as reverse discrimination.
Nurse was calm and kind
We are looking to thank a nurse who lives somewhere in Nighthawk. A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were in a very bad car accident…
Comp. Plan moving forward,still needs improvement
Citizensfrom across Okanogan County applaud the Planning Commission’s efforts to updatethe Comprehensive Plan. The first two drafts of the document do not representall of the Citizens of Okanogan County and considerable enhancements werenecessary.&#160;
Ignoring or ignorant?
I haven’t written in quite some time because I decided to respond to letters only if they contain obvious misinformation or easily refutable lies.
Many miles to go
My inner compass goes berserk when dawn breaks and I have nothing planned for the day other than to be thankful for a “bonus day” at the age of 82. My obsession to walk many miles is now limited to a mere three to six miles, not 12 or 20.
Don’trealize what they miss it until it’s gone
I think the blank page idea was a good one, if only for theeffect of realizing what something meant to a person once it is gone. As far asthe complaints about the content of the opinion page, I say tough beans. TownCrier? Let ‘em cry! That is what the page is for.
