I just wanted to commend Oregon City High School’s students and staff for a magnificent production of “To Kill A Mockingbird.”

In all my years of attending theatre locally, nationally and worldwide, I cannot recall ever being so enthralled in a performance.

Many, many thanks, and congratulations on a extraordinary performance.

A call for justice

A person’s home is his/her castle. It’s also true there are those living amongst us whose tent is their home.

When these tent communities are razed, it’s a callous act. When the residents of these tent villages have nowhere to relocate, the razing becomes an act of cruelty.

This is precisely what has happened alongside the Springwater Corridor here in May of 2014. We say that we support, “liberty and justice for all.” There comes a time to pledge that we support justice for all.

We afford park settings for tenting and call it recreation. Surely we can afford settings for tenting, a place to call home and not the least a place to live in peace!
