As a former law enforcement officer, a gun owner, and a proud supporter of our men and women in uniform, I am voting to re-elect Congressman Peter DeFazio so that we have his seniority working for us in Douglas County. DeFazio reaches across the aisle when necessary to work with his Republic…
On the ballot is a question asking if Douglas County should research joining Idaho. You should research some things about Idaho before answering yes.
President Trump angrily denied this past month's report in The Atlantic that he denigrated U.S. service members, calling it “fake news” and a “disgrace” and suggested the author and his sources are “liars.”
Approximately 36,191 Oregonians died in 2018 according to the Oregon Public Health Authority website, according to the most current scientific data the agency shows.
Dr. John Powell recommends that we "follow Sweden's policies" in the United States. Really? Dr. Powell again does our community a disservice by spouting reckless coronavirus theories that do more harm than good.
Dr. John Powell's guest column posted Sunday, Oct. 18, shows me that he needs to go back the basic tenets of medicine and review the section on "do no harm."

The first campaign letter I received from Alek Scarlotos touted his physical act of bravery. Physical acts of bravery are rarely needed in Congress.
This election may change the course of America for the unforeseeable future. Americans have two options: 1) vote for the "status quo" of the past four years or, 2) vote for a "change."
Stop bombarding people every day with updates on the coronavirus. It is a form of fear-mongering which only leads to depression and anxiety; while providing no benefit to the general population.
Yet again, we, as Oregonians, have suffered through hideous, unending smoke. As a native Oregonian, it angers me to hear the news blame the mismanagement of the federal and Bureau of Land Management lands. There is plenty o evidence the problem is with the "fake forests" planted on private t…
