Editorial Cartoons

It felt like old times to see a letter complaining that Doonesbury should be placed on the Editorial page, not the comics. I first ran across Garry Trudeau a half century ago, when we were both at Yale — he in Yale College and I at Yale Divinity School.

This letter is in response to the commissioners' decision to close all libraries in Douglas County. I do not understand the “infinite wisdom” of those who cannot see beyond their own noses to find a solution around saving our libraries. So now it seems their plan is to cut off their nose to …

I love Roseburg. I have three generations of ancestors buried here and hope to be buried here, but I am in no hurry. But Roseburg has problems.

I’m feeling unfortunate for all voters who actually voted on Nov. 8. I also was offended with the media’s biased campaign coverage. Ironically, I don’t believe “we” were best represented by either candidate.

Dr. Howard Bauchner is the editor-in-chief for the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association which publishes original research, reviews and editorials covering all aspects of the biomedical sciences. In his Jan. 3, 2017, editorial Bauchner poses this question: Is health care co…

Sunday's opinion page gave us an opinion on the plight of the homeless in the county, listing reasons such as lack of or loss of a job, divorce (perhaps caused by lack of a job), the high cost of housing and lack of adequate housing. The writer calls for more affordable housing and more tran…

I have to admire Mr. Bickers’ enthusiasm for government-payer health care (Letters Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016). However, an objective look at other countries’ “National Health Care” raises alarms.

“A properly functioning democracy depends on an informed electorate.” Thomas Jefferson wrote about the importance of a well-informed electorate many times. Unfortunately, we have apparently dismissed Jefferson’s ideal.

Early this morning when I walked into our living room, 40 or 50 birds flew up from the red-berried shrubs outside our windows! I pointed my easy chair toward the glass and settled in, careful to move nothing but my eyes.

Three cheers to Midge Frost (Letters Sunday, Jan. 1, 2017) for pointing out what should be obvious to The News-Review editorial board and every other chattering class media member-in-good-standing across the nation.

I don't know the two women killed in this sickening and senseless accident but I am saddened to read of it. Even more, it is disheartening that it happened 20 years ago, to someone else, and nothing was done to alleviate possible future accidents. According to the ODOT (Oregon Department of …

As the new Republican leadership grasps power in 2017, the prime focus is to repeal Obamacare and leave 20 million Americans without medical insurance. I have no delusions that Obamacare is perfect, but at least it was a start in filling a need that the Republicans have given lip service to …

Obama will do anything to protect his so called "legacy," which stinks as it is. He just allowed the "useless" UN to stop Israel from developing its own land by abstaining in the UN vote and will most likely start another war in Palestine.

Clear cuts do not mimic nature. Instead, they're an illustration of man's brutality and disconnection from nature. This sense of entitlement to take whatever we please. I realize people who grew up immersed in the timber ideology don't see it that way, but there are many things, once accepte…

Vilifying the other major political party is only counter productive to our unity as a nation. There are mostly good people on either side, while the loudest and most radical are the ones dominating media coverage. The fringes increasingly subvert the middle where most folks live. This trend…

I've noticed a disturbing trend the past week in the letters published by this paper. In one such letter, a woman stated that Hillary Clinton was unqualified to lead this country because she wasn't a man. I wonder how Ms. Witt would feel if someone gave that same excuse for not hiring her fo…

I can understand why some people are terrified at the prospect of Donald Trump as President of the United States. He and future presidents of this nation will now look to the procedural precedents set by Barack Obama in his attempt to “fundamentally change” our country.

Regarding the election and the Democratic Party’s obvious attempt to steal it from the people’s right to a fair and transparent change of direction that our country needs, Clinton lied about everything she could to sway people’s minds, and it obviously worked on millions.

Citizens for our state can help the families of our deployed Oregon National Guard soldiers during the holidays. Gift cards for any amount for grocery stores, department stores, toy stores and even gasoline are a great help to families of soldiers, as they often experience financial difficul…
