It’s long past time that conservationists and timber interests start sitting down at the table together and compromising on solutions for how our government-owned timberlands should be managed.

WASHINGTON — When Donald Trump first strides into the Oval Office as president, his perfect day is likely to be ruined by a file marked “North Korea.” Trump’s (first? only?) term in office may include either a messy confrontation with an unpredictable, highly combustible regime, or a rogue n…

Soon after Trump’s announcement speech, I said he would win the nomination and likely the election. It wasn’t that hard to predict. For anyone familiar with the Republican Party’s repeated betrayals of the American people, it was a 2-foot putt.

Finally I got to read an inspiring article in the paper. Gustis Goin loves his family and his country. We only hear and read the opposite in most news articles. It is so great to know there still are some people in this country who have respect and love for their country, who have respect an…

As members of the board of directors of the South Umpqua Rural Community Partnership (SURCP), we take issue with the op-ed piece by Mr. Todd Vaughn published in The News-Review on Nov. 29. Mr. Vaughn's comments do not represent the positions of SURCP on a number of issues.

WASHINGTON — At long last, Fidel Castro is dead. Now the oppressive system he installed in Cuba can wither and die, too — unless Donald Trump reverts to Cold War policies and gives Cuba’s failing dictatorship new life.

Our group believes that everyone is entitled to their own perspective, and that includes their own vision for our national forests. The “multiple use” model reflects society’s best effort to ensure that folks with differing perspectives are able to enjoy our forests in their own ways, simult…

For those that think the Republicans are the only ones that are full of hatred, you need to look in the mirror because as I see it, everyone seems to think one or another party is full of hatred.

Today will be a day filled with food, football and family. And although it’s been a tumultuous year in America, it’s important to remember how lucky we are to live in a country where we have the freedom to express ourselves.

Last night I was looking at a picture of one of my grandsons — he in his silver combat Batman outfit, Photoshopped into a Justice League poster — thinking how wonderful it will be to see him, his brother and all of his “cousin-brothers” and some of our children this coming holiday. Thanksgiv…

In one of the most contentious elections in recent history, the polarization in our country between red and blue became more acute as battle lines were drawn in homes among family members, among coworkers at the office and among media outlets.

My wife Miss Vick and I have now lived in Winston for about 18 months. We love the state of Oregon, Douglas County, the city of Roseburg and most of all the little city of Winston. We plan to live here for the rest of our retired lives.

One week after the election and I still can't stop being sad. I am very afraid of what the next four years will bring for our country. I have never felt this way after any election. I did not fear for my fellow citizens of color, women, immigrants, LBGTs, and the disabled. Today, I do.

I believe God has given America a second chance to shape up with a Republican win. When looking at the two candidates it was difficult — but when you looked at their platforms there was no doubt.

Once upon a time, we were so dedicated to improving our community that we as a county banded together to form a single library system. It was well funded and fully staffed by professional librarians. The branches were open often enough that people could visit them regularly. And a beautiful …

Since Donald Trump was elected as the next president of the United States, I have read frequently that hate did not elect him, but people did. This statement is usually in response to anti-Trump protesters in urban areas and in defense of rural white America, whose working class has been ignored.

I was just wondering what right the elected officials have to choose what law they want to obey or to enforce? Like the DA in Portland choosing not to prosecute the destructive people in their protest, or the mayor of Eugene in her defiance of the law. I think that sets a terrible example.
