    I am anxious enough living in a time of pandemic and so limit myself to about 30 minutes of reading the news about the latest outrage from Trump. Unfortunately, I stumbled across the opinion piece by Jim Cornelius published July 29 opining on the Portland Troubles (“Echoes of tumult,” page 6).
  • To the Editor:

    A few years ago there was an excellent article in The Nugget about our noxious toxic knapweed invading Sisters. I see currently knapweed has totally invaded the corner property near the Lodge & Post Office. It is now blooming and can release up to 25,000 seeds per plant, covering Sisters. The plant makes soil toxic to native plants plus it can be toxic to horses. It is difficult to eliminate.

    Before you publish a slew of letters in support of anonymous federal troops in unmarked vehicles taking prisoner people on the streets of Portland, you might point out the hypocrisy — the whole Malhuer occupation of federal lands in Burns by the Bundy-led group, including destruction of federal property, which was supported by the Proud Boy types who have not uttered a peep about sending federal troops into Portland to take people off the streets in order to protect federal property.

    In The Nugget’s July 8 editorial “Wear your mask,” the daily death toll from coronavirus was cited as totaling about 1,000 for all age groups. It is more accurate to state that — allowing for a couple of spikes well above 1,000 — the daily number has hovered between 500 and 1,000 through most of June and into July (down from peaking at 4,900 in a single day on April 16).

    I’m writing to express thanks to Craig Eisenbeis for his article “Oregon’s History Steeped in Racism” in the July 1 issue of The Nugget. It was painful to be reminded that laws in force in Oregon in my lifetime discriminated against African Americans. I grew up in Medford in the 1950s. I don’t think any Blacks lived there then.

    Maybe you have read in some of my previous Letters to the Editor and determined that I have considerable dislike for our two party system of government.

    I want to thank everyone who helped with the Class of 2020 Street Banner and Keepsake Project.

  • Letters to the Editor - 6/10/2020
    To the Editor:

    We went with masks to the Redmond Vigil, May 31. There might have been 100 of us, including children. The sun was setting. It began with statements by the organizer and then locals were encouraged to speak and some (whites mostly and a few of color) stepped up and took the sterilized megaphone.

    As a member of and volunteer with the Sisters Rodeo for 14 years, my most special memory is this:
  • To the Editor:

    I have never met Kay Grady that I am aware of, but I think I would like to meet her when social distancing is over, and shake her hand. 
  • To the Editor:

    Save Sisters’ trees!

    Re: May 6, 2020, “Communications is Key as Sisters ‘reopens’ by Mayor Chuck Ryan and City Manager Cory Mosley.”
  • To the Editor:

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our teachers who provide such an excellent education to our children. As a grandparent raising three kids I have watched for eight years these dedicated professionals going above and beyond expectations to expand these young minds. In so many creative and innovated ways they create an atmosphere where children are eager to go to school and learn.

    As the district continues to navigate the COVID-19 crisis, I want to give an update from our last school board meeting.
  • To the Editor:

    I would like to take a moment to thank you all as a community for the love and support you’ve given to the Health Care system during this COVID-19 time.
