Letters to the Editor 07/12/2017

To the Editor:

In response to Mr. Kopec's letter, it is surprising to me that people in Sisters have already forgotten that the traffic has backed up to Tollgate every summer for years.

I suppose that it is a relief to finally have something to blame it on. Please put the blame where it belongs on downtown Sisters where the traffic cannot move through town without dozens of stops for pedestrians. I, too, have sat at DQ and I am pleased to say that I think the roundabout is working.

To the Editor:

Re: "Am I ready? Facing death and grief," The Nugget, July 5, page 37:

This is a wonderful, thoughtful reflection.

As a teenager I was blessed to know a Methodist church leader who was slowly dying of leukemia. I've known few people who were so full of life. She once said to me, "You can never really live until you've come to grips with dying."

The energy we waste trying to avoid the difficult realities of life frequently cause more problems for us and those we love than it is worth. Peace does indeed come from facing uncomfortable topics.

Thanks for this article.

To the Editor:

It should be illegal for the city to block the only effective route to/from Central Oregon for an event. This is no different or even worse than protesters blocking highways.

There should be a way to bypass the entire town (and not just one within the city).

Sisters is the worst!
