Volunteers make banquet work

To the editor:

What is the Baker County Chamber Banquet all about?

Volunteers, that’s the short answer. The long answer: An opportunity for the community to thank individuals in Baker County that make a career out of volunteering to run community events, championing charitable projects, participating in community infrastructure missions and leadership projects that support and encourage economic commerce in our community.

Wind power a viable option
To the editor:
Your Jan. 13 editorial “Not All Birds Equal” draws a parallel between the regulation of wind farms with respect to birds and that of hydro dams with respect to fish. The differences, however, are considerably greater than your editorial reflects.

Income inequality: Theme of 2012
To the editor:
Your editorial cartoon of Jan. 13 depicts Mitt Romney in unfavorable light as an out-of-touch Republican presidential candidate. His personal wealth (around $250 million) and his recent comments have made him a sort of poster child for the top 1 percent of Americans.

No evil had been planned at school
To the editor:
It falls to me to take Kyle Knight to task for his need to publicize himself to the detriment of the 5J district and of his own integrity.
In the latest episode, our hero discovered that some teachers at Baker High School were behaving strangely on Jan. 2, and eagerly called all of his media sources to condemn the district for holding school on that day.

School on Jan. 2 was a mistake

Holding school on Jan. 2, a federal and state holiday, was a mistake. While other government agencies were closed, Baker schools opened.

The school district’s response, that they would recommend we don’t do this again, was a smart move. I am still concerned about statements made to me by the superintendent that “Those who chose to skip or promoted skipping are making a judgment that is ethically challenged. It is the behavior of those who skipped that bears scrutiny, not the district’s.”

$3 billion would buy U of O
To the editor:
There seems to be some smoke blowing into the eyes of the UO President’s Search Team that without an assurance of freedom from that horrible Board who rightfully fired their president, no candidate will look at the position.

What we know about forests
To the editor:
I read with interest with Jayson Jacoby’s column (Dec. 30) on Nancy Langston’s book “Forest Dreams, Forest Nightmares.” I agree that a forest is a complex place, but there are some things that we know about forests and trees:

Time for radical political change
To the editor:
Replace all our politicians. Radical? Yes. Necessary? Yes. Why? Have they done anything to deal with our country’s serious issues in most recent times? No. Have they passed a bunch of Mickey Mouse laws that mostly just affect your liberties and rights and nothing else? It appears so to me.

Community supports kids
To the editor:
I am writing to thank our supportive community for continuing to give to Learn and Grow to Go, our very own backpack food program. LG2G is serving students in grades K-3, and 7-12.
