Bring immigrants out of the shadows
Craig Rullman recently authored a column entitled "The Great Wall of Trump" which provided details drawn from his experience as a narcotics officer in California and recently released prison statistics to seemingly suggest that almost all those arrested in the drug trade were individuals in the U.S. illegally. That isn't true, and neither are his claims that immigrants just bring trouble and work for nearly nothing.

Sisters Eagle Airport - more than an airport
From the outset, it has been our goal that the Sisters Eagle Airport was more than just an airport. We see it as community venue and as an economic engine for both tourism and business aviation.

A better idea for insuring health
A great idea is floating around Central Oregon: Why not join with California and Washington in a West Coast universal healthcare system? It's time for healthcare to be treated as a human right, not a luxury.

Civility and Socrates
I am involved with the Citizens4Civility (C4C) non-profit here in Sisters Country. For about 18 months we have been hosting quarterly Civility Project/Speak Your Peace meetings to share ideas and techniques for how we can all be more respectful with each other. We have been focusing on nine core tenets of civility.

Obama failed to lead
Re: Steve Nugent's op-ed "An understandable reaction," in the March 8 edition of The Nugget:

After reading Mr. Nugent's column, my first reaction was, how, after only one month in office, could he come to such negative conclusions, with no redeeming values whatsoever. In fact, according to the opinion piece, he ends with the statement "all of these things bring serious doubt as to the legitimacy or fitness of President Trump."

An understandable reaction
Eric Wattenburg was evidently disappointed in the reaction of the Ron Wyden Town Hall crowd at Sisters High School, when an audience member asked whether Mr. Wyden accepted the outcome of the election. Wyden replied "yes." The crowd, which was primarily comprised of Democrats, was reportedly silent and did not signal that they agreed or disagreed.

A despicable incident
I attended Senator Ron Wyden's town hall meeting February 20, in Sisters, Oregon, at the Sisters High School auditorium, and there was an episode there that needs to be broadcast.

Airport has many economic benefits
Regarding the recent public meeting held by the Oregon Department of Aviation at the Sisters High School: I expressed support for the move to be listed in "Appendix M" because the location and the potential benefit for the community support that listing. I still support that listing after attending the meeting.
