• To the Editor:

    I write in response to Mr. Damerell’s Letter to the Editor of January 6.

    Instead of referring to the homeless as vagrants and criminals, how about stepping up and lending a helping hand to the less fortunate? I do, and have been greatly rewarded in peace of mind and spirit, not to mention friendship.
  • To the Editor:

    My father served in both World War II and in the Korean War as a Japanese linguist/Naval intelligence officer. My father-in-law served as a soldier in combat in the Korean War. My brother served two tours as a Seabee in combat zones during the Vietnam War.
  • Editor’s note:

    There will be no letters to the Editor in the forthcoming December 30 “Year in Review” edition. Letters to the Editor will resume in the January 6 edition.

  • To the Editor:

    Do you find climate-change talk off-putting or just plain scary? Fortunately, author Mary DeMocker published a book in 2018 that makes facing the facts of climate change not at all daunting: “The Parent’s Guide to the Climate Revolution (100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep).” 
  • To the Editor:

    I am the chairman of the Kiwanis Food Share to provide the certificates for a Christmas dinner. We have worked together with the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Department for many years. This year, due to COVID-19, things are a little different. The Fire Department is not accepting applications after December 11, so that they will have time to get the gifts for children done in time for their distribution.
  • To the Editor:

    Please let me tell you about a true friend.
  • To the Editor:

    We are heartbroken that all of the Sisters community events have been canceled this year. The Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce has spent many thousands of dollars on our shop-local advertising campaign, given out thousands of pieces of PPE and tens of thousand of dollars in grant funding to our business community.
  • To the Editor:

    I am not much of a communicator but I feel a need to convey some of my thoughts to our special town.
  • To the Editor:

    Recently read an article on the divide between those involved politically and those watching from the sidelines, which assumed those not involved politically must not care and will not vote. 
  • To the Editor:

    Like many of you, I am more than ready for this presidential election season to end, but I’m trying to prepare myself for
  • To the Editor:

    If you haven’t yet voted, I am writing to encourage you to consider Elizabeth Fisher for one of the open seats on the Sisters City Council. I first met Elizabeth when she was a student in a chemistry class I taught at Sisters High School. Though that was a number of years ago, several of the personal characteristics which Elizabeth demonstrated even then qualify her as an excellent Councilor.
  • To the Editor:

    Having been born and raised in Sisters, I have actually never once commented on a Nugget post or written a letter. During a time of so much hostility and confusion combined with rapid growth, we have slowly lost our beautiful sense of community. I have faith that we will rebound and one way to do so is to honor key members of our community and educate ourselves.
  • To the Editor:

    Hey, it isn’t easy to come up with something everyone can agree on these days, but I think I have one: Inasmuch as Jim Anderson (The Sisters Naturalist) has probably had more to do with the edification of the entire population of this region than anybody ever has, the next time a name is needed for a new school here it should be the Jim Anderson Elementary, Middle School or whatever, right? 
  • To the Editor:

    I certainly agree with all the readers that wrote regarding the CEO of Laird Superfoods’ proposed invasive (development) of the prime Forest Service properties in the middle of Sisters to house employees of their once-small operation, which is now being expanded to 500 people.
  • To the Editor: 

    I have been curious of Laird Superfood’s interest in Sisters since CEO Paul Hodge announced that the company would build their factory and headquarters here in Sisters and employ about 500 people. 
  • To the Editor: 

    I started my career as a licensed helicopter mechanic in the early 1970s. I worked heavy-lift helicopter for the good part of 46 years. 
  • To the Editor:

    Last week Bill Kemp asked those readers of The Nugget, that are also supporters of Trump, “What would it take for them to abandon their support of him?” My immediate response to that question is: What is my choice? 
  • To the Editor:

    Over the last 3-1/2 tumultuous years I have asked many of my friends who happen to support Trump, “What would it take for them to abandon their support of him?”

  • Editor’s note:

    We are entering the cauldron of an election cycle that may be as heated as any in American history. The Nugget welcomes opinion from across the political spectrum, and we expect those opinions to be vigorously expressed. Argue for persuasion, not for provocation; refrain from name-calling or personal attacks on other letter-writers.
