Herald misses point on coal

To the editor:

It was disappointing to read the Herald’s recent editorial which ignored the dangers of accelerated burning of U.S. coal (April 27). Coal and other fossil fuels (carbon-intensive fuels) are the cause of undeniable and devastating impacts around the world through the mechanism of global warming.

Williams the right person for job

To the editor:

Lately we’ve been reading about the attributes and qualities of the many candidates seeking election for the Justice of the Peace. Given the changes occurring in the budget and the reduction to a half-time position for the judge, it will take someone with excellent management skills to successfully make the transition. Several candidates fit that bill. However, the other part of the equation, and of equal importance in my mind, is a candidate’s knowledge of criminal and civil law, as legally sound decisions must be rendered daily.

Vote for Duman

To the editor:

I’m supporting Gail Duman in her race for Justice of the Peace. I’ve known Gail to be a successful Baker City businesswoman more than a dozen years.

Gail has confirmed her moral ethics to be a credit to her success in business.

Knight should be ‘uncensured’

To the editor:

Our local politics are becoming more like the federal politics, which disregards the opinions of the voters. This is very disappointing.

My wife and I had the privilege of working with Lynne Burroughs in a play she directed. She is an excellent director of plays and no doubt was a very good teacher. Lynne has proved that she is a public-minded citizen and is willing to put herself out for our community; this I appreciate.

Duman for Justice of the Peace

To the editor:

I am writing to encourage you to vote for Gail Duman for Justice of the Peace, Baker County. Gail has helped to lead our community as a City Councilor, as a Baker City Budget Committee member, and as the Historic District Design Review Commission Chair. In addition, she has given countless hours of volunteer time and resources to Historic Baker City, to our public schools, and to raising money for the Billie Ruth Bootsma Foundation. Gail is capable of making tough decisions. I know her to be careful, efficient, and fair. Please vote for Gail Duman for Justice of the Peace.

Williams best choice for JP job

To the editor:

We are endorsing Don Williams for Justice of the Peace.

Over a span of 20-odd years we’ve had occasion to visit with Don. Our conversations have hit on a vast spectrum of topics, discovering we have many common interests and values.

Closing roads can save money

To the editor:

Much has been written about the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest Travel Management Plan. Most writers see this proposal to close 3,800 miles of road as a terrible thing. But maybe looking at the situation from another perspective would be worthwhile. The proposal would keep open approximately 4,300 miles of road.  This is a lot of road!

Locking us out of our land

To the editor:

Of the people, by the people and for the people?

What is it about that statement that the Forest Service doesn’t understand?

Years ago, the F.S. made many, many acres of wilderness ground in the forest. Wilderness is used by less than 1 percent of the population of our country. Now they are determining that over half of the roads in the forest should be closed. Approximately 15 percent of the population utilize the Wallowa Whitman National Forest, and 14 percent of those that use the forest live within twenty miles of the forest.

The high cost of cap-and-trade

To the editor:

Those defending the Democratic Energy Policy like to trot out that shabby old scarecrow Catastrophic Climate Change. The theory is somewhat shopworn since released emails showed more politics than science in its product, but let’s carry that scenario out and see where takes us.

The Democratic Energy Policy has two prongs: increasing the use of renewable energy sources and decreasing the use of fossil fuels. The latter goal is met through a program called cap-and-trade.
