Newberg Graphic newspaper readers weigh in on issues of importance in the community

Wilsonville Road configuration crazy

To the editor:

Say, I guess any motorist trying to get from Northeast Wilsonville Road to Northeast Wynooski Road should just park the car and walk. Or hope to have business at the Wilco Farm Store, it's on the way!

Ron Phillips, Wilsonville

Vote for Don Loving for CPRD board

To the editor:

During his tenure on the board of directors, the Chehalem Park and Recreation District has greatly benefitted from the strong leadership, experience, and commitment to community Don Loving has provided.

His understanding of local governmental issues in addition to those coming out of Salem have paid big dividends while serving on the board and for those of us living within Newberg and Dundee.

Don Loving has been a champion of new parks, trails, community centers, sport and aquatic facilities, youth and adult programing, and so much more while serving on the board.

We are fortunate to have a person in Don Loving that has the values, skills, and dedication it takes to be an effective community leader for CPRD. Join me in the support of re-electing Don Loving for the Chehalem Park and Recreation board of directors on May 21.

Mark Martin, Newberg

Rierson, Loving get his vote

To the editor:

I'm going to vote to re-elect Don Loving and Bart Rierson to the Chehalem Park and Recreating District board of directors. Both have given many rears of outstanding volunteer service to this community by serving on the board. 

The CPRD is an outstanding contributor to the Newberg-Dundee community.  It is one of the most efficient and effective special service districts that I have ever seen. Its strength is in anticipating community needs, doing the analysis and planning, involving the public, building the projects and operating them efficiently. 

The recently completed Chehalem Aquatic and Fitness Center provides a perfect example of a CPRD project which is a wonderful asset to this community.

Other outstanding accomplishments include the golf course, the skateboard park, the cultural center, countless sports facilities, parks and trails.    

We owe Don and Bart many thanks for their tireless contribution to the CPRD board and ask them to continue for another term by re-electing them.

Keep gas attendants on the job in Oregon

To the editor:

After reading the guest opinion in your paper about the push to end attendants pumping gasoline, I was dumbfounded.  As the population ages, we shouldn't be eliminating services, but guaranteeing them for all time.

And, this service is not only wonderful for senior citizens, but for mothers with young children that would have to keep a watchful eye while out of their cars. 

I realized years ago while taking care of my granddaughter what a benefit it was to have an attendant fill my gas tank, as well as all the drive-thru restaurants that served right to my car. I didn't have to 'drag' her out of a car seat for service. So convenient!!  

Please don't go backwards and eliminate this wonderful service.

Keep Don Loving on the park district board of directors

To the editor:

In the more than 25 years I have known Don Loving he has been a positive member of the Chehalem Park and Recreation District board of directors. Don cares deeply about this community and is a great supporter and positive listener to the ideas, wishes and concerns of our citizens as it applies to the park district. He works diligently with the board and the citizens to provide great opportunities for recreation and green spaces in this community.

Please vote for Don Loving.
