Our Sheriff is doing an excellent job of enforcing all laws that comply with the Constitution. He swore an oath, as did all elected and law enforcement personell, and he is upholding that. What he cannot enforce, are laws, executive orders and regulations that violate the constitution. The c…

Leadership in Douglas County is missing in action. We have a sheriff who was elected and paid to enforce all the laws and regulations of the state and county. He has publicly claimed he can ignore those that he doesn't agree with. Can I exceed the speed limit, not wear my seatbelt, burn yard…

In response to article in the Sunday edition of The News-Review, "Heard forced to leave Douglas High." If what is written is true and accurate, I believe the administration and school district have some explaining to do. Please don't tell me that "Cancel Culture" has arrived in Douglas Count…

I believe the Roseburg airport should be moved to a location in Garden Valley. It presently serves very few people who could be as well served at a location in Garden Valley. The present location of the airport, which is prime commercial property, should be redeveloped along the lines of Eug…

It soothes my soul to think how much blah and fodder the right have gone. It is watching the preview of a disaster movie. We know the ending. The competitor, the Beacon, printed a whole page of let's make Dr. Dannenhoffer the fall guy. He is as they said, another Fauci. No he is not. And the…

It's good to see that Marc Thiessen is at least consistent. His column in The News-Review last week was an absolute compendium of what passes for thinking among far-right writers as he criticized President Biden up one side and down the other for his direction of the evacuation of Americans,…

We have been lied to since the beginning of COVID. You don't need masks, need masks, you are safe outside, no hide indoors, etc. The media has been complicit in this, running articles not just scaring people about what to do and being vaccinated but vilifying those with concerns about the va…

Reflections over the last 20 years since our country was attacked and our way of life. We responded as one, at first, but the on-going war that ensued dampened our resolve to defend this country which is our home. We must remember the sacrifices for our freedom and know that those who sacrif…

In Douglas County, over 1,000 people have been infected with COVID-19 so far this month. Statistically, of those already infected, 10-15 will be dead by the end of the month. A thousand people infected those people, and 10-15 of them will be responsible for the death of another human being.

One of my most important votes as your newly appointed State Representative of House District 2 will be regarding Redistricting. Every ten years new census data allows re-mapping of legislative and congressional districts. The Redistricting Committee with members from both parties have been …

Farewell Oregon. I shall miss you. My daughter often says this when I contemplate moving away: “It's like changing lanes at the market.” or, “The Grass is Always Greener.” Although I know the grass is not greener in Vermont, ( it actually is) neither is it burnt nor the air toxic to breath. …

Any observer of history knows invading Afghanistan is a blunder. With all respect due to the brave Americans who served our country there and the events of September 11, that created the justification for the Bush administration to invade Afghanistan, it is still a blunder of the first magni…

I am one of those annoying people talking about decluttering. I have read blogs and listened to You Tube channels about the benefits of having less. I am not sure when my mind shift occurred. It was a gradual process, especially considering I use to find comfort surrounded by things. Realizi…

I sat in stunned disbelief as I read the front-page headline article of The News-Review (The growing debate over ivermectin, Sept. 1). I had just returned from a week’s vacation and was catching up on local news, only to find myself the focus of it. The article quoted a passage written by my…
