Letters to the Editor 08/09/2017

To the Editor:

Regarding this inflated story of "Mayor under scrutiny" I would like to shed some light since I actually witnessed this event.

This "over 50 petite woman" was not so innocent while walking by reading her mail. She deliberately stood in front of the Ryan's home with her cell phone out taking a video. She clearly has an agenda; now she is playing the victim card.

Please keep in mind that she had the audacity to post it on a website.

I have lived in this neighborhood over 15 years and I have seen a bit of stuff; however, I do know this: The Ryans are decent people and deserve better than what they are being dished.

To the Editor:

Congratulations to Skydive Awesome on establishing their new headquarters at Madras where they have acres and acres of safe and scenic landing zones for the parachutists, well away from residential areas and obstacles.

We wish them well.

And thank you to Sisters Eagle Airport personnel for facilitating the relocation. Skies over our neighborhoods have been wonderfully peaceful with only the ordinary coming and going of local planes and visitors.

For this we are deeply appreciative.

To the Editor:

I often sit back in silent, idle agreement with opinion page offerings (and sometimes in silent, idle disagreement). But on this occasion I'd like to thank Bill and Zoe Willitts for the letter that appeared in the August 2 edition of The Nugget.

The Willitts' simple but powerful (VW-by-the-side-of-the-road) story inspired as it poignantly encapsulated what I think of as the Sisters experience - a beauty grounded by goodness and generosity of spirit.

I regularly enjoy the energizing nature around Sisters. Anecdotes like the Willitts' remind that the nature of Sisters itself is just as energizing.

Likewise, even when our community faces challenges, sputters or stalls, we have that bounty of faith - and hope - renewing charity to help keep Sisters powered and purring. In that generous and compassionate spirit, may our well-tended '63 VW just keep on truckin'!

To the Editor:

Craig Rullman (The Bunkhouse Chronicle, The Nugget, August 2, page 6) may feel like "a sad-sack townie" in the presence of Len Babb, but through his down-home musings, Craig brings to life the tales of those who hear the siren song of the desert to a real sad-sack townie like myself.

Thank you, Craig Rullman!
