Re: “A Push for a Warming Shelter in Bend

Thanks everybody, for your excellent comments and ideas.

I am so sorry I have offended members of our generous and caring faith community. They do essential and important work in our community.

Laurel has written such a well researched and informative article. However, as is almost always the case with interviews for the media, we spoke for almost half an hour and only a few sentences were printed. She just doesn't have space for everything on such a complicated topic.

I absolutely did speak to her about the problem that so many of our churches are booked, hosting programs like Alcoholics Anonymous, often in the evenings. These important programs help keep people from becoming homeless in the first place.

Members of our wonderful faith community host the community kitchen, and of course, help fund our homeless shelters. Many congregations donate food and clothing. Faith communities host interesting speakers, movies and too many other activities to list.

I never meant to dismiss all of these contributions to the community we all love and to the people we are all trying to help.

Thank you again and I am sorry I came off as so oblivious to the excellent work being done by our generous faith community.

Barb Campbell, Bend City Council

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Nichole, George was weighing in on what should be an issue of science and data for our tax funded agencies at all levels.

In Alaska, tiny tourist dogs are snack-sized for local Bald Eagles but law enforcement don't call in the exterminators.

Emotional law enforcement officers making decisions based on fear and prejudice are not good for anyone, no matter how many legs they have.

Re: “Waldo Take Was Short on Facts

Pecking away at our remaining pockets of tranquility with arguments like powerboats "are no more...noisy than than average car" is specious at best. Allowing powerboats on Waldo Lake would increase the amount of noise, period.
