The last several years, nearly five is more accurate, Fitzpatrick started a protest of civil rights and the frequent deaths of African Americans. To avoid the media reports highlights blacks dying than whites by police. What I am questioning is how athletes taking a knee to protest inequalit…

What is going on with the Veteran's Affairs Medical Center in Roseburg? They were contacted about the COVID-19 shot for 65+ as was published in The News-Review. The response that was given was that it was for federal employees. Isn't the VAMC for veterans?

Concerning the mimics and nitwits who hate Trump so much that they are willing to sacrifice everything they have to destroy him, even after he leaves office, even America as we have known it. The far left Democrats are socialists and communists who take their ques from the communist manifest…

It all started as surgery to my lower spine. I was sent home the afternoon of the operation with well wishes and bottle of pain pills. These pills caused me to have hallucinations in which I thought I was able to walk. As a consequence, i took two bad falls. The Roseburg Fire Department was …

Today, I have an embarrassing confession to make. I owe all of you an apology. In my youth, I was a thief. It only happened a few times. My crimes were always accompanied by what seemed to me, at the time, to be a rational justification. In reality, my rationalizations were simply, lies, and…

We Americans, as a general rule, are lazy, we want things easy. Politicians and salespeople target and prey on you with shiny baubles. Unfortunately, life is complex. Layers of influences get us to sway this or that way. If we continue to look to the shiny bauble and easiest solution, we sha…

Trump appears to be preparing for another run for president in 2024. If he frightens, cajoles and manipulates enough Republicans into supporting him, he might very well be the Republican candidate in this next presidential election year. What is certain is that if he does run, he will begin …

I was overjoyed to read the Letter to the Editor of Feb. 18 in which my name was mentioned four times. Never have I ever been mentioned so often in a 300-word letter. I was equally excited to discover that so many dedicated individuals and organizations have been working so tirelessly over t…

My affiliation with Roseburg High School and the Roseburg School District is: our three children graduated from Roseburg High; my wife taught at Melrose Elementary for 22 years. I've been an avid Roseburg High sports fan for all my 48 years living in this great community. I especially love w…

On the heels of President Biden's promised anti-gun push, Salem Democrats are about to ram through two bills, SB 585 and SB 554, which taken together will effectively do away with the right of self defense. The state pre-emption law protects citizens from random capricious gun restrictions e…

One thing is for sure--if you don’t change the name of the Roseburg Indians, this issue won’t go away. If you do change it everyone will move on, and it will fade into the past. I’m not hearing anyone taking signatures to return Umpqua Community College back to the Timbermen.

The 1939 edition of the Roseburg High School “UMPQUA” featured a handsome image of a Native American on its cover. Everyone was proud of it. I visited the Roseburg headquarters of Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians last Wednesday and was told the Tribe has no objection. The complaints…

Those who want to change the name of the Roseburg Indians should be proud of the heritage of those Native Americans who have proudly and honorably held the name to the highest standards, not only in education, but sports as well. You shouldn't be ashamed that the school carries the name Indi…

There is no point in having an "eligibility date" for seniors to receive the vaccine since there isn't any vaccine! Clearly, Douglas County isn't getting its allocation and has administered the lowest percentage of vaccines in the State. Meanwhile, in Lane County last week 5,500 people over …

Except for a small handful of conscientious, constitution-defending senators, with this second impeachment acquittal, the vast majority of the Republican congressmen and women have undeniably affirmed their spineless allegiance to Donald Trump's unhinged, egocentric "leadership." Not a singl…

2020 Election Steal? Was there fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election, or was it a free and fair election? The courts have determined the facts, using verifiable evidence which can be confirmed. In Arizona a Nov. 12 law suit claimed that electronic voting machines were improperly counting b…
