Global warming

Letter to Editor by Bruce Bauer Medford Mail Tribune, January 14th 2018

The East Coast of the U.S. is freezing, and the Great Lakes are getting tons of snow, so global warming must be over. So claim those who completely fail to understand climate science.


Support Clean Energy Jobs bill

Letter to Editor by Sidney Brown, Ashland Daily Tidings, January 11, 2018; also in Medford Mail Tribune, January 17, 2018

Many Southern Oregonians worry about how climate change affects the region. We already see how higher temperatures and reduced snowpack increase the risk of drought and wildfire. We can see no forthcoming federal action to reduce emissions, no science-based debate about how to protect the environment. We must therefore rely on each other.


Read Voters’ Pamphlet

Letter to Editor by Joyce Chapman, Medford M ail Tribune /  Ashlland Daily Tiding January 7, 2018

It is instructive to look at Ballot Measure 101 supporting and opposing commentaries in the Voters’ Pamphlet since their sources tell us as much as the content.


Walden plea is all wrong

Letter to Editor by Tom Doolittle, Medford Mail Tribune, January 6, 2018

Sunday’s letter from Kate Foley requesting an end to Walden attack ads misses the point. We have to bring Walden’s failure in every area to the public because he has misled us all.


Bridges are possible

Letter to Editor by Pat Gordon, Medford Mail Tribune, January 6, 2018

In the vein of “Stories of bridges across the divide” (Dec. 25), I was heartened to read citizen Bartt Brick’s letter to the editor in the Dec. 6 Madras Pioneer: “Fellow Republicans: We cannot allow this to happen.”


Choose door No. 1

Letter to Editor by Louise Shawkat, Ashland Daily Tidings, January 6, 2018

Ever watch “Let’s Make a Deal”? Behind doors are hidden deals: some have value, some are “zonk.” Should Oregonians, as contestants, accept door No. 1 or door No. 2?



Integrity Matters

Letter to Editor by Trish Vigil in Medford Mail Tribune January 3, 2017 and Ashland Daily Tidings, January 5, 2017

Neither crooks nor the corrupt care, but integrity is something most of us value. Without integrity, which can be assessed many ways, one cannot be trusted.


Build the solar farm

Letter to Editor by Ken Deveney, Ashldand Daily Tidings, December 30, 2017

I hope that the city will take real action to fulfill its commitment to produce 10 percent of its own electricity by 2020.


Don’t use neonicotinoids

Letter to Editor by Jill Iles, Ashland Daily Tidings Deember 30, 2017

The Black Tartarian tree in my back garden is a bird/bee tree. In the spring, when it is glowing with petals as the sun shines, the bees return. Standing as close to the trunk as possible, I let their meditative humming surround me, its calming and strangely comforting warmth connecting me to this earth.
