Climate change To the Editor: In the November 15 letters to the editor, Sharon Booth said she was stunned by the lack of knowledge Pat Farr possesses on climate change in comparison to “scientists” all over the world. I’d bet Pat Farr has mo... — Updated 11/21/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor, 11/15/2023

Climate change To the Editor: The letter from Pat Farr in The Nugget on October 11 stunned me by the lack of knowledge she possessed re: climate change. The changing climate has to do with overall averages of measured weather phenomena over... — Updated 11/14/2023 Full story

Hunters in the forest To the Editor: There were a few misconceptions promoted in T. Lee Brown’s column of November 1. She stated that a hunter had fired off 12 rounds without looking. Since hunters are limited by regulation to a maximum o... — Updated 11/7/2023 Full story

Beware of scams To the Editor: Sue Stafford’s column “Of a certain age: Don’t get fooled, (The Nugget, October 18, page 8) is a story I have also heard from friends and family. She makes it clear that it’s all too easy to be fooled by thes... — Updated 10/24/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 10/18/23

Crossroad or crosshairs To the Editor: The lights blinking on my dashboard go dead. I barely make it to Les Schwab. Of course there’s a two hour wait. Years ago I would have been devastated, embroiled in victimized mind chatter. “What? I j... — Updated 10/17/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 10/11/23

Climate scam To the Editor: The Green New Deal and Climate Change are the biggest SCAM in our nation’s history. Our so-called authority tells us we haven’t done enough. We have the cleanest water and air. The worst offenders appear to be Chi... — Updated 10/10/2023 Full story

Fishing poles To the Editor: I am responding to Terry Weygandt’s letter of September 13. To be clear, I think most people, unless you are a monster, care about the plight and suffering of others less fortunate. That said, there are two f... — Updated 9/19/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 9/13/23

Haves and have-nots To the Editor: It’s all about the haves and the have-nots. The Sisters City Council vote last week against approving a warming shelter says that a majority of the Council adheres to the view that the haves are not o... — Updated 9/12/2023 Full story

Truck stop? To the Editor: The furor over the proposed mega gas station and the new big apartment complex in back of Takoda’s made me think wistfully about my first of many visits, starting many years ago (1997 maybe?), to the little town o... — Updated 9/5/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 8/30/23

More Bunkhouse Chronicle To the Editor: I firmly believe Craig Rullman is fully capable of defending himself, to say nothing of his being able to shrug off criticism. That being said, recent critics seem to feel his characterization of the... — Updated 8/29/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor…8-23

Emergency shelter To the Editor: I would like for those who have strong feelings about the proposed homeless shelter to consider the following: The town of Sisters has had an operational cold weather shelter for the past five years. This... — Updated 8/22/2023 Full story

Topic headers To the Editor: Really Mr. Cornelius? You are getting your leads from British tabloids now? A new low for The Nugget. With “Chinese” in the title, the yellow background caught my attention. When I saw “British daily tablo... — Updated 8/15/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 8/2/2023

No bull To the Editor: As an avid user of our trail system, I have seen my fair share of wildlife — coyotes; bobcats; a herd of elk, etc. — but this sighting was unique for me. On a run with my dog I hear some rustling off-trail and sto... — Updated 8/1/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 7/26/23

Grateful for those who have gone before To the Editor: Jim Cornelius’ editorial about Dave Moyer (The Nugget, July 19, page 2) hit a nerve and made me want to speak up. Not just about Dave and my time spent serving on the Sisters School D... — Updated 7/25/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 7/19/23

Remembering a contributor The first time I met Dave Moyer, he was fighting to save a man’s life. It was the first City Council meeting I covered for The Nugget as a freelance reporter — February 1994, if memory serves. The tiny council chamb... — Updated 7/18/2023 Full story

Letters to the Editor 6/28/23

Just say no To the Editor: I applaud the City staff for its denial of the Space Age rebuild! Mr. Pliska’s comment that he’s “trying to be a good neighbor by doing what is right for Sisters” is laughable. As a 33-year resident, I love dr... — Updated 6/27/2023 Full story


Letters to the Editor 6/21/2023

Keep it traditional Top the Editor: Nearly 40 years ago I built a house in the Sisters area. I was attracted here by the rustic, traditional nature of the environment and escape to the country. The proposed gas station violates every facet... — Updated 6/20/2023 Full story
