One out of every eight Oregonians is food insecure. They are your neighbors, your community and they can’t afford all the food they need. More than 600,000 Oregonians depend on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Project to put food on their tables each month, and more than one-third of th…

In the past, anytime there has been an increase in complaints from downtown business owners, officers from the Roseburg Police Department have gone around to the downtown markets to ensure clerks are not selling alcohol to anyone who appears intoxicated.

Has your child been coming home from school overly tired? It might be because he or she has spent much of the day testing. If you look at the State of Oregon and Roseburg School District testing schedules (and listen to the student in your family), you will find that these tests go on for weeks.

The Douglas High School bond levy is not an argument, it is an investment. Some have ignored everything that should be important, like the slightly lower tax rate, increased property value, safety, energy efficiency, etc.

Has anyone else noticed that our city seems to be turning into a trash heap? If you haven't, I suggest you walk along Garden Valley Boulevard, especially in the area of Fred Meyer and the park near it.

The recently reported bug out of the Oregon Senate Republicans was a last-ditch effort to slow down the democratic freight train. The Republicans are now back in Salem.

Oregon universities are claiming they are broke and need more money. However it's not the lack of money that is the problem, it's their profligate spending.

I hope readers will join me in the support of Measure 10-169, the Winston-Dillard School Bond Levy. Douglas High School, built in 1957, is in need of significant repairs and improvements. Every district student filters into Douglas High School, so the impact of this investment is substantial.

During the snowstorm in February, we in Sutherlin had cellphone use until the electricity came on. We have not had full cell service since. I have a car insurance app on my phone that does not have enough power to work. It works in most parts of Roseburg, but not all. It is costing me money.

I have spent many days and nights in many of the mountains in Oregon. All anyone has to do is go up on a high spot and look in any direction to see the many clearcuts.

Registered voters in the Elkton School District will soon be receiving their ballots that include Measure 10-67. I hope that everyone will see the value of this measure and vote "yes" on it.

The timber twins gave their buddy a $50,000 break and intend to let the peasants of Douglas County take up the slack. The commissioners seem to believe the peasants are so busy working, just trying to pay the bills, they'll never look up to see what's going on. Even if they do, they can't ta…

I am writing in support of the Clean Energy Jobs Bill, currently being considered in the Oregon Legislature. It is called a “cap and invest” bill. It limits pollution from the largest emitters. Small businesses like grocery stores, farms, ice cream shops and florists won’t have to pay becaus…

I just read the comments of Commissioner Boice about solid waste. So what are you going to do about the roughly $50,000 disposal fee waived for the Hannas? You should take steps to collect it now.

I understand the writers principle of "one-person-one-vote," but I disagree that it is always fair. The Constitutional framers included the electoral college to satisfy lower population colonies' fears that they would be controlled by big cities like New York. And that is exactly what is hap…

I will be 90 years old this year. I was born in the old Mercy Hospital in Laurelwood. That is when the Oak Street Bridge was the only one across the south river. Perhaps the VA bridge was here then, but I am not sure about that.
