Letters to the editor

Thank those who serve the community

To the editor:

Canby/Aurora VFW #6057 Post and Auxiliary, in our effort to recognize local people and organizations in our own community who are making a real difference, made chili, cornbread, salads and desserts and attended their appreciation night at the Aurora Fire District.

The dinner was well attended by both firefighters and VFW ladies and men. All we really knew about Aurora was that it one of the fire departments that really saved the Legion Hall when the building next door burned to the ground.

As Americans we take so much for granted and I would like to encourage you to visit your fire and police departments, all your schools, our VFW and American Legion, city councils and other service organizations to see for yourself what they are doing to protect and help you in so many ways.

A lot of these people are volunteers but their hearts are huge.

A little thank you and appreciation goes a long ways.

Community safer with stop signs

To the editor:

I want to thank Councilman Jim Cox and Woodburn Public Works for working with the community and facilitating the installation of two stop signs in the Heritage Park neighborhood.

The intersection of Constitution Avenue and Patriot Street previously had yield signs installed. There were many families nearly involved in accidents at this intersection with only the yield signs present.

This signage change will definitely help contribute to the safety of the community.

Resident not “proud” of police

To the editor:

In regards to the Woodburn Police, whenever you hear people carry on about how wonderful and “proud” they are, the opposite is usually true.

I am personally and painfully aware of the vicious pettiness of some on the Woodburn Police and some of their viciously petty constituents that they cater to.
