Williams best choice for Justice of the Peace

Those of us who have the good fortune to live in Baker County must soon make a decision on who will serve as our next Justice of the Peace. Since HB 2712 has effectively reduced the position to half time, it behooves us to choose very carefully. We need someone who has the education, experience, management skills, compassion, sound judgment and integrity to fulfill the requirements of the position beginning on day one, as well as run an efficient, well-managed office with limited resources well into the future.

We believe Don Williams is the only candidate that meets all of those criteria, and has a proven track record. Please join us in supporting Don in the upcoming election for Justice of the Peace.

Fifth-grader wants to learn about Oregon

My name is Conner Miller and I am in fifth grade. I attend Brethren Heritage School in Modesto, Calif.

We are doing state reports this year in our History class. I have chosen to do my report on your state of Oregon.

If you should happen to read this in your local newspaper, I would greatly appreciate receiving any information or items regarding your state. You could send pictures, tourist attraction information, trivia about your state, or anything that would cause me to be more familiar with your state.

Please send to: Conner Miller, c/o Brethren Heritage School, 3549 Dakota Ave., Modesto, CA 95358.

Thank you very much for helping me with my state report. I will appreciate any help you can give me.
