Letters to the Editor for April 9, 2010

We must use the Earth’s resources

To the editor:

Some people seem to think the worst is over, and I hope they are right, but I’m very skeptical. There appears to be very few people in government who have any concept of what has caused our problem. As a result, most government actions have had very little benefit to the overall problems; in fact many groups are working hard on projects that will hurry the breakdown of what’s left of our economy.

To get down to basics, we cannot continue to spend more than we earn forever. Printing money won’t solve the problems, it only postpones them. Someday there will be a day of reckoning.

Letters to the Editor for March 29, 2010

Change: Lots of talk, little action

To the editor:

The way I see it, so much for change.

The last presidential election was billed as we are going to change the way Washington operates. I am still waiting for that to happen.

There may still be time to save our country if the Tea Party or some other group gets serious about real change. There is a group of people in positions of authority that are playing musical chairs in Washington and it has been going on since Carter’s time, or before.

Thanks for a great letter, Mark

To the editor:

Congratulations to Mr. Mark J. Steele for sharing a great letter on his personal values, learned as a child  practiced as an adult. Right on, Mark! We shared the sentiments expressed in your letter, wholeheartedly, and say thank you for putting the thoughts into very appropriate words!

Hold the thoughts, and continue the family teachings!

Red Cross flags go missing

To the editor:

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will visit Baker City again on March 29 and 30. Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives, and it is very important for us to contribute our share by making our quota of 160 units for the two days. Baker City usually comes through, but extra blood is always needed.

I urge you to give up just one hour of your time to help save those three lives.

Unfortunately, we have had two incidents happen during the last two drives, one in November and the other in January.

Living within our means

To the editor:

I reviewed the article last week about $9.5 million Baker is getting from the seemingly bottomless pit of magical government grant money. This  is close to $1,000 for every Baker resident. I suppose in these times of economic stress someone somewhere really needs parks and road improvements. It seems to me everyone from the businessman taking grant money to pay for windmills that can’t generate enough electricity to pay for themselves, to the landowner taking money to cut down juniper trees on his government-rented CRP land, to Baker taking money to improve parks or straighten one curve of many on the road to Phillips Lake, are all part of a huge economic problem.
