Ten years after tragedy, fond memories endure

It is hard to believe that 10 years ago a horrible plane crash claimed the lives of three young men from the Hood River community: my husband Chris Jones, who owned Son-Rise Development, Paul Linck, the pilot of our plane, and Brook Campbell, who owned Rockin’ the Gorge, a local drywall company.

Every single soldier: looking for photos to help honor Vietnam fallen

My name is Janna Hoehn. I am a 25 year resident of Maui, Hawaii. Six years ago, my husband and I made our first trip to Washington, D.C. Because Vietnam was the war that was going on while I was in high school, the first memorial on my list was the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall.

Another Voice: Keystone XL and the Sherbet Rainbow

Last Tuesday morning, I read the news on Google. The new crop of House Representatives would be sworn in that day. Republicans are now the majority in both houses. I read the transcript of the speech of House Speaker John Boehner. He wasted no time mentioning the imminent battle for passage of the Keystone XL pipeline. He mentioned the 94,000 jobs that would be created. An impressive number, if you ignore that these would be temporary jobs. He brought up the “job killing” oppression of Obamacare. Much of the speech was dedicated to American jobs.
