Letters to the Editor for March 28, 2012

‘We the people’ no longer exists

To the editor:

It is an insult to the flag of the United States to be flown above the Forest Service complex in Baker City.

Our flag represents “we the people,” which the Forest Service doesn’t want to be concerned with.

Letters to the Editor for March 23, 2012

Why is Sandra Fluke complaining?

To the editor:

After reading numerous letters condemning Jayson Jacoby’s article on why Rush Limbaugh statements about Sandra Fluke should not be national news, I feel the need to question some of his critics’ logic.

Travel plan surprise? Not to me

To the editor:

No one should be surprised at the Travel Management Plan released last week by the Forest Service. No one who has paid attention to the track record of TMPs around the West that is. No one should be surprised when the BLM equivalent is published in final form either. It is all about government “environmentalism” and the public be damned. No news here for anyone that has been objectively following the actions of the current administration in D.C. Just one of many ways the U.S. government has sold out to the United Nations and its menagerie of environmental whackos.

Limbaugh is just plain nasty

To the editor:

What were you thinking, Jacoby?

You took half a page to try to let Limbaugh off the hook. “So what’s the big deal? (to paraphrase you). So he went a little overboard this time with his trademark slander. What’s so wrong with that?"

Letters to the Editor for March 16, 2012

To the editor:

So — Jayson Jacoby becomes an apologist for Rush Limbaugh, whose latest “gaffe” (actual meaning is a social blunder) was nothing more than labeling a woman a slut and prostitute for daring to express her opinion in front of Congress. And gee, he apologized. Didn’t he? I assume then that one may call your wife or daughter those names and you would shrug it off as inconsequential.

Generosity makes food aid work

To the editor:

I am writing to thank Jeff Nelson, the owner of The Clothes Outlet, who generously organized a food drive for Learn and Grow to Go. Patrons brought in nonperishable food items and cash to support our local backpack food program. I gladly picked up four big boxes of food that will be distributed to students throughout Baker City.

Explaining why wolves work

To the editor:

In response to the sarcastic criticism of my comments on the wolf’s hunting habits, I will explain how the wolf can identify barren elk and deer: the barren ones are old or infirm – that’s why they’re barren. And the non-performing bulls and bucks are non-performing because they’re old or infirm – they can’t compete with the younger studs. Wolves notice these things (after all, they spend their whole lives preying on and observing these animals). Wolves attack the barren and non-performing because they’re old or infirm or sick, and this makes them slow.

Here are some sources on the scientific evidence to support the effects of wolves and other large predators on the landscape:

Lots happening at the hospital

To the editor:

On Feb. 27 I was an invited guest at the St. Alphonsus Ladies Auxiliary monthly  meeting. During that meeting I learned of many changes taking place at the local community hospital, not just in name or current corporation management.

Legal fight takes toll on elderly man

To the editor:

I have pondered for almost a year the judgment of the Baker County Justice Court, and the legal system it entertains.

Letters to the Editor for March 2, 2012

Forest travel management plan out soon 


I am always pleased to see the public getting involved in matters affecting their community, and even more so when that passion surrounds the use, management and enjoyment of our national forests. In the next couple of weeks we will publish the long anticipated Record of Decision for Travel Management on the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest. The most important question raised in regard to this decision was “what is the appropriate amount of motor vehicle-based recreation, in relation to natural resource protection needs across the forest?"
