Letters to the Editor 09/27/2017

To the Editor:

Thank you to all the wonderful people who joined us for the two "Journey's Flight" book publishing parties we had at the middle school and at the chamber building. 

It was such a wonderful time that some of us would like to try to make this an annual event. After all, the monarchs begin their southern migration in mid-September of each year. Why not hold a celebration for them which would offer us a wonderful opportunity to educate students and the public about the need to help these vital pollinators survive, which is critical to our food chain? 

If you would like to help with next year's event, please contact me at harryandlolabooks@gmail.com.

Jean Nave

Contributing author and publisher of "Journey's Flight"

To the Editor:

One of the first things Oregon's Republican Secretary of State Dennis Richardson did after being elected in November was to form the "Fair Redistricting Task Force." In April, he announced a complex plan that would give more power to his own office in redistricting decisions.

With Oregon due for a sixth congressional district after the 2020 census, Richardson may get a chance to put his new plan into action.

Indivisible: Sisters, Oregon, is worried about this new, untested redistricting process. If this also scares you, please join us on Saturday, October 7 in watching the one-hour film "Democracy for Sale" and discussing the possible fallout. There will be two showings, at 3:30 and 6 p.m. at the Sisters Library meeting room, followed by a 30-minute

discussion.

Will the Supreme Court make new rules to prevent gerrymandering, or will the conservative justices avoid this issue? Make your reservation at EventBrite now! Seating is limited.

Paula Surmann
