What ever happened to “We the People…”? What happened to individual God given rights and freedoms? What happened to bottom up government of the people, by the people, for the people?

My concern today is the issue of the lack of "informed consent" at the multiple sites and locations that are open to obtain the virus vaccinations. Informed consent is a ethical and lawful requirement from your Doctor to you regarding the risks as well of the benefit of any medical treatment…

Parents and guardians, are you frustrated with the identity politics being inserted into the public school system? Did you know that nationwide 1.4 million students have left the public school system for the 2021 school year? Are you aware that the Oregon State Board of Education just passed…

In the September 28th print edition of the Herald Ms. Debbi Reeves of Tillamook asked a reasonable and pertinent question: why no attention was paid by the White House to certain opinions she found on the internet. She asked "Can anyone tell me why?" I would like to supply an answer to her q…

Last Spring, the students at Pacific Christian School wrote letters of encouragement and support to the local police. I wrote a poem at that time and I think it is time to let the local law enforcement personnel know that they are appreciated. God bless you.

Here are a few questions to consider: Why are the hospitals telling people with COVID symptoms to go home, and if it gets worse, come to the hospital, thus, suppressing early treatment and the use of long-approved, FDA medications like hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, and azithromycin, which …

Commissioner Yamamoto recently opined in the Washington Post that he feared President Biden’s mandates on vaccines will put more lives at risk. He believes workers will quit rather than get vaccinated, leaving patients and assisted-living residents in peril and costing lives. He believes we …

I am not an intellect. I am not an idiot. I am a normal, everyday, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and have lived over 6 decades. I have faith and belief in a Creator. I do my best not to judge others and my best not to pick fights or sides. I have never been a quiet person w…

This letter is to address the county commissioners weekly meetings scheduled on Wednesday during the morning hours. This is when the working class, the majority of us, are busy working and cannot participate. We are trying to feed our families, pay our taxes, rent/mortgages and keep the ligh…

Last Wednesday on the 8th of September, while the Oregon Board of Forestry was meeting and your local neighbors were petitioning them to implement changes in forest policy that would better protect drinking water, a helicopter hired by Stimson Lumber hit a high power line while spraying a mi…

As the one-year anniversary of the Pike Road Fire approaches, our thoughts return to the incredible individuals (too numerous to mention) and organizations who saved our home at 8335 Pike Road. Words cannot express our gratitude to the fire departments in the Tillamook area (Tillamook, Bay C…

In Robin Kostrikin’s letter last week she notes the importance of carefully evaluating the science regarding COVID 19. I totally agree. So I reviewed the list of authorities she provided to evaluate their credibility given that Kostrikin’s conclusions appeared to be counter to the overwhelmi…

In most cases, I am somewhat fond of skepticism.  However, I do not approve of skepticism that fuels itself on stupidity and leads us into danger.  Mr.  Kern's letter from August 17 seems a perfect example of skepticism gone over the edge of rationality.  I feel sure his "wisdom" must come f…

I have noticed that there are people who have a religious objection to receiving a vaccine that protects against the SARS-COV-2 virus, saying the Lord will protect those who have faith and that we shouldn't depend on human intervention. This reminds me of a story about a man whose house was …

There were two school board meetings in rural Oregon. Both meetings represented a majority of conservative constituents and delved into divisive topics. However, the attendance, atmosphere, procedures, and outcomes of these meetings were incomparable.

Much of our mainstream, Orwellian media would have us believe that the more than 4,000 reported serious injuries that have resulted from receiving the COVID jab is comparatively low, considering the millions that have been vaccinated. But a study conducted by Harvard University found that le…

People have forgotten their history. Remember the eugenics program subjecting people of color to unethical experimentation and Dr. Mengele=Nazi Germany. We no longer have natural immunity, but instead an unethical marketing campaign to bribe, and coerce people to get vaccinations that don't …
