Letters to the Editor for July 3, 2009


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.


Letters to the Editor for June 29, 2009


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 up on your responsibilities at www.oregon.gov/ODOT/HWY/BIKEPED/laws_regs.shtml.


State: Listen to the voters

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.
