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.

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.

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.

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.

Did I just read that? I had to read the "sore loser" letter in Thursday's paper over and over because it didn't match what I had heard coming from Trump during the campaign.

I read Shannon Applegate's letter to the editor. I guess she has a liberal crystal ball that she is looking at with all the changes and new policies she says will be taking place.

Every one of the protesters who illegally assembled to protest Donald Trump's victory should be arrested and charged for their crimes. While people have the right to free speech they don't have a right to civil disobedience. When you illegally assemble and disrupt other people's right to fre…

Donald Trump is president. We are told he is a smart man who will surround himself with experts and will heed their advice. He says he cares about the welfare of all Americans. I hope it is true.

I didn't sleep well election night, as I was sorely disappointed by the outcome of the presidential election. I wasn't crazy about Hillary, but I've always considered Trump an egotistical charlatan — an untrustworthy, deceiving fraud actually. But then I heard his conciliatory acceptance spe…

The paper from Nov. 9 was headlined "America has spoken." Right next to that you showed the numbers. The numbers showed Clinton ahead in the "popular" vote by almost 200,000 votes. So what America said was very, very different from what the archaic "electoral college" said in giving Trump th…

We very much appreciated Andrea Zielinski’s guest column on “Resolving neighborhood conflict” in Sunday’s News-Review. In an era of divisiveness and seemingly endless indignation, a focus on resolving conflict is refreshing, and there is no better place to start than in your own neighborhood…

I was appalled by the letter from Patricia Sherman of the child who went to school on Halloween dressed as Hillary in jail. Of course it isn't the child. It is the parents. The last I checked we are a country of laws. The last I heard Hillary has not been indicted nor proven to be guilty of …

As a 14-year-old kid growing up in Joliet, Illinois, I started following the Chicago Cubs in 1945, the last year they appeared in a World Series. With great devotion, I followed them through decades of disappointment. But now it's time for me to wax a bit poetic, or is it nostalgic?

I’ve known and had the pleasure to work with David in multiple capacities for many years, and he has earned my highest endorsement as our next State Representative for House District 1.

How can anyone think library supporters have not thoroughly explored ALL funding solutions? Library staff and supporters have been thinking about alternative funding for 20 years. Ever since 1996, when repeated budget cuts made our libraries fall below minimum standards. Can we privatize? In…
