Health Dept. gets grant for classes
To the editor:
We all have an interest in our community’s well-being, including a commitment to its health, prosperity and success. A healthy community is generally a thriving community.  Reproductive health plays an important part in achieving this collective goal, and public health can be a link to the communication and education needed for guidance on this issue.

Grass courts are a Baker City jewel
To the editor:
I was disappointed in the Sept. 7 editorial implying Don McClure would be a “good neighbor” by self-imposing limitations on social play at his grass tennis courts. Living with the grass courts in my backyard gives my family the pleasure of seeing all ages, shapes and sizes having fun outdoors, pleasure in seeing a local family take meticulous care of their property, and pleasure in a beautiful view.

Letters to the Editor for Sept. 14, 2011

Your editorial of Sept. 7, 2011, would leave one with the impression that Baker City’s one-of-a-kind grass courts are the genesis of controversy that has been continuing over more than a decade. Because the rules have changed considerably since the courts were first built, let’s look at the current issues surrounding the controversy.

Do neighbors dislike lights?
To the editor:
I wonder if people living near Wade Williams Park or Leo Adler Field complain about the lights at night?

Letters to the Editor for Sept. 7, 2011

Sports is full, but news lacking
To the editor:
I couldn’t help but notice today’s newspaper was sadly lacking in the news department, but not in the sports department. Today’s paper, Monday Sept. 5, 2011, has two sections to it. Section A consisting of 12 pages including the classifieds, and funnies has three articles with reporters bylines. One by Terri Harber, and two by Lisa Britton. Section B, the sports section, consist of 10 pages with 15 bylines all by Gerry Steele. Now as I see it I count 18 total by-lines and Gerry is responsible for 15 of them.
Does anyone else work besides Gerry? I hope he is the highest paid employee at the paper, because it is obvious news reporters other than sports don’t contribute their fair share to the body of the paper. I recently read your parent company filed for Chapter 11, well you certainly can’t blame Gerry for it.

Drivers ignoring cell phone law
To the editor:
Is it just me or does it seem like everywhere we drive we see folks still talking on their phones in their cars? Is this against the laws of Oregon or not?

Look back for brighter future
To the editor:
I’m writing to applaud and second your confidence in American ingenuity to solve our major problems (your op-ed on “Political Ambivalence,” Aug. 12). In my experience, we can achieve excellent results if we challenge ourselves to spend the time and effort to arrive at solutions which meet everyone’s needs. We are that good!

Train whistles
blow for safety

To the editor:
This letter is in response to the recent run of complaints pertaining to the excessive horn use at railroad crossings in Baker City at late hours.
As a Union Pacific employee, I would like to clarify national railroad crossing policy. We are mandated by the Department of Transportation document number FRA-2007-27285, established by the Federal Railway Administration, to provide ample warning for public safety.
