Think before signing petition
To the editor:
I was dismayed when I read the article about the sidewalk graffiti
(Baker City Herald, June 19). The person(s) who did this are in the
same class as the writers of anonymous letters, hateful, cowardly,
vindictive. Do the supporters of Brocato condone this behavior?
Immediately following Brocato’s dismissal the spate of letters praising
him and vilifying certain city councilors had all the earmarks of an
organized campaign, especially since it was followed by recall
petitions against Mayor Dorrah and Councilor Calder. All this will
eliminate any possibility of helping Brocato but it might hurt Calder
and Dorrah, which appears to be the intent of the campaign.
Be careful out there on the streets
To the editor:
Now that summer is upon us, it is time to remind bicyclists and
motorists about the rules of the road. As I drove down Main Street this
evening a teenager on a small child's bicycle glibly rode directly into
my path from the opposite side of the street, and then had the gall to
swear at me when I yelled at him.
Parents, please tell your children that rules of the road apply to
them. If you think it’s OK to interrupt the flow of motor vehicle
traffic just because you are under 18, you are seriously mistaken. Read

The Oregon Legislature is trying to pull a sort of bait and switch on voters.
Except lawmakers want to keep the bait, at least temporarily. And the switch, well it doesn’t even exist.
The bait was Measure 57. The measure, which requires longer
sentences for people convicted of certain drug and property crimes, was
touted by the Legislature as a better, and cheaper, alternative to
Measure 61, which would have imposed similar, but tougher, sanctions.
We’d wager that it’s a simpler task to sign your name on a sheet of
paper than to scrawl words on a sidewalk with a chunk of chalk.
Signing the paper isn’t against the law, either, which is nice.
Nor do you have to wait until after sunset.
