Round Table: Bless the space between a friend and his fatal pain

Neighborly: Meadows deserves credit for decision

Thank You, Veterans

The tolling of the bell served as a fitting start to Tuesday’s Veterans Day service at Anderson Tribute Center. Boy Scout Emilio Castenada rang a bell 11 times — for the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th Month, when the Armistice of World War I was signed — that moment that stands for the honor we give to all who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Round Table: Scar issue, and dissecting a cartoon about a cartoon

Choosing a cartoon (or two) for each issue of the Hood River News is one of the great pleasures, and challenges, of this job
