Canby Herald letters to the editor for the Oct. 11, 2017 issue talks fees and honoring a veteran

The Canby Herald.

Fees continue to be an issue for Canby residents

To the editor:

After reading Paul Schmidt's "2 Cents," I would like to have my "2 Cents" heard.

I have lived in Canby since December 1950. This is the year everything has gone up. Not long ago the base pay on the water made quite a jump. A few short years later, the Canby City Council was talking about putting a high fee on the city of Canby.

A gentleman in the room stood up and said that 'if you put that fee on it, I will have copies made and deliver it to every home in Canby.'

Well, they settled on $5, which is another $5 on homeowners. I also kept the names that voted "yes."

Recognition for returning Honor Flight vet a highlight

To the editor:

It wasn't a ticker tape parade, but Bill Guttorsen's car was escorted from Oregon City, past the county fairgrounds signage with his welcoming home message by a small group of Patriot Guard Riders to Wait Park where a group of around 200 people waited.

Bill was returning from an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., on Sunday, Sept. 24. Our fire department displayed a large U.S. flag with everyone present holding welcoming signs and flags. Bill was noticeably touched by this welcoming party arranged by Charity Payne, a new addition to the our community.

It was a marvelous opportunity to visibly display our respect for veterans of whatever conflict they serve. Perhaps such can be repeated in the future.
