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 …

School board director Howard Johnson was recently quoted, “This country was made great through the genocide of Indians and the enslavement of Blacks. We don’t want to go back to that. We want to move forward.”

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…

As the Roseburg Public School system ponders the effect of a declining enrollment on the operational budget, they need look no further for answers than the progressive, ultra-left atmosphere being advanced by the educators.

The fiscal atrocity of a $1.9 trillion "single-year" bill is interesting only to economics students since others' silence about this is defining. President Reagan signed a $1 trillion budget. Everybody wrote him — aghast. Now, our legislator's are "borrowing" 6 times that, and no one blinks!

We are proud to see our city allowing the homeless to camp in the parks. Pulling into Fred Meyers, we are so proud to see their tents next to the duck pond, no matter how they got there.

Executive orders and a partisan passed stimulus bill without GOP input is the same old strategy of the previous administration. President Biden and Democrats want bipartisan resolve going forward. The partisan vote to push the stimulus does not show effort toward bipartisanship. The current …

In his letter "I don't see Biden as a threat to Catholics" the writer states that "Biden does not threaten our Catholic way." Apparently,"your Catholic way" differs from that of the Vatican. Does not the Catholic Church expressly forbid abortion? If not, why has Joe Biden been denied communi…

When I came back from World War II, I found healing and tranquility in fishing the North Umpqua River. This past year has once again shown the importance of the essentials in life, like having a roof over your head, family and friends, and a healthy river to fish. I hope that 2021 is a bette…

Our Constitution calls for a strict division between church and state. Government cannot regulate anyone’s religious beliefs but there shall be no religious test to serve in government at any level. Dallas Heard has the right to promote his Citizens Against Tyranny although his tactics are t…

Everything is crystal clear to me now, thanks to Marjorie Taylor Greene! Jewish Space lasers! Those sneaky Rothshilds designed, built and launched a space laser in secret to burn down California! All in the path of the future high speed rail system, also owned by Jews! While we are at it, Tr…
