To the Editor:
In the Letters section of the February 14 Nugget, Terry Weygandt, in referring to Craig Rullman's Bunkhouse Chronicle of February 7, seemed to make some pretty bold claims that seem questionable.
Initially Terry claims, "there is absolutely no evidence that Democrats attempted to influence the election in favor of Hillary Clinton." I would suggest that millions of Bernie supporters would argue the real evidence says different. And, with ongoing investigations still in progress it may be a bit premature to use terms like "absolutely."
Continuing on, Terry says that Mr. Rullman "could do a little research" and suggested he listen to Pod Save America. Being curious I got online and listened to the February 1, 2018 session mentioned. The Pod Save America site where Terry calls the hosts "funny and smart" turns out to hosted by far left, foul-mouthed, former Obama staffers full of hate for Trump.
If the Dems run on a platform "Elect Us Because We Hate Trump" in the midterms I'm not sure that will be effective. It certainly hasn't done anything for the credibility of Hillary's mainstream press.

I would like to put in my two cents regarding snow removal in the City of Sisters. Sunday morning, we all woke up to several inches of snow in town. As a retail shop employee, part of our opening duties are to help shovel the sidewalks, decks, and even some parking for our customers for the day.
It wasn't until 1 p.m. that I finally saw the gentlemen on the ATVs driving around attempting snow removal. The problem? The sun had melted a large portion of the snow already, and other retail shop employees and owners had shoveled the majority of the snow out of the way. Not only were the ATV drivers ineffective at removing snow, they were a danger to customers walking around town.
Perhaps we can try and schedule these guys to come well before shops are supposed to open, and not the middle of a busy weekend afternoon. What we really need them to do is to help clear out the bulb-outs on Cascade, and other parking spots in all other parking lots on our side and back streets. Additionally, they need to come early in the morning (like 6 a.m.), well before customers are parking in town to shop and eat. For a city that claims to be business-friendly, it is very frustrating to continue to not have the support from the City when we need it most.

Winter is still here after all.
As someone who commutes to Bend every workday, a snow storm hitting Sunday into Monday is not one of my favorite things. Thankfully, I've got ODOT on my side! ODOT does a great job. Highway 20 was in great shape Monday morning and the commute was smooth sailing all the way. I am always so impressed!
