This letter is to acknowledge a new group that makes my heart smile with renewed hope and promise for my hometown; the Klamath Falls branch of the Democratic Socialists of America. They are working to shift societal motivation and policy-making back where it belongs to focus on people over p…
Waiting in line the other day, I overheard a woman bragging that she won't wear a mask because she is a patriot.
A pandemic involves all nations, all people. A disease pandemic does not cherry-pick its host.
As the winter phase of the COVID pandemic approaches, there has been a reshuffling of the cards: several vaccines will be available shortly to the public, more quickly than anticipated.
November 3 could go down as an historic day, maybe a day of ending and a day of beginning. We have apparently elected the oldest president at swearing in, and elected the first woman vice president, a woman of color. We thereby could have ended a republican presidency, while starting down th…
If I told you that a grawlix infestation is inevitable, you’d probably respond with something to the effect of, “What the $#@! are you talking about?”
Even though our county commissioners declined to support Klamath County Public Health director Jennifer Little's request for county support of the CDC recommendations and the governor's mandates, they are still necessary if we are ever going to be rid of COVID-19.
Don't care about the state government and how they are trying to avoid a catastrophe.

The role of a county commissioner is to work for every citizen of Klamath. In this county, most of us appreciate the diversity of opinion, our individualism, and yet our commitment to community. I proudly work for the citizens of Klamath County.

The Klamath County Commissioners have not earned the leadership right to argue for “local control” during this pandemic. They have not put out a cohesive complete plan. They have instead mumbled on occasion to follow CDC advice, and then not done so themselves.
The first Thanksgiving was celebrated less than a year after the Plymouth colonists had settled in the new land. The first winter in Massachusetts had killed nearly half of the members of the colony. But new hope grew in the summer of 1621. The corn harvest brought rejoicing. Governor Willia…
It’s no secret that the coronavirus pandemic has made a huge impact on how Oregon retailers and restaurants operate. With additional restrictions implemented at the start of the holiday season as cases surge, it’s another challenge for local small businesses.
During the upcoming holiday season, the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the citizens of Klamath County for their efforts this year in helping us keep the county as safe as possible.
The Trump campaign’s top lawyers — Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis — went into last weekend on the offensive. On Thursday, they held a news conference vowing to prove the existence of a far-ranging conspiracy to defeat the president. They were pressing a case alleging unfair voting…
