Letters, Aug. 12
Congrats to Logos team
Please join me in congratulating the Logos Public Charter School Rogue Pack, coached by Chris VanNess, for winning the regional and then state Environmental Sciences competition called Envirothon. The four-time state champion team then represented Oregon at the national competition in July in Ohio, earning 27th place nationally in a tough competition.
This is the largest Envirothon in North America, where each year over 25,000 high school students compete with their innovative solutions to balance quality of life and the quality of the environment. They competed in soils, forestry, wildlife and a current issue topic (waste to resources).
Envirothon is a great way for students to learn about environmental sciences. We recommend more schools get involved. We’re so proud of this fabulous group of students and their coach for their hard work and dedication!

The rest of the story
A recent letter writer has a complaint about the Jackson County Republicans rejecting the 2020 presidential election results.
I wonder if he’s aware that it’s an ongoing process by the Democrats to declare President Trump an illegitimate president. I wonder if he’s aware that President Trump told his supporters in D.C. on Jan. 6 to march to the Capitol to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
And finally, is he aware of the leftist attacks in 2011 on the Wisconsin Capitol, the May 2020 attempted storming of the White House by BLM, which caused the head injury of a Secret Service officer and sent President Trump to the bunker, the summer of 2020 attack on the Federal courthouse building in Portland and the October 2021 breach of the Interior Department by climate activists? Didn’t think so.
Vote for Chenjeri
Emily McIntire is running for the Oregon House of Representatives, which includes the part of Jackson County east of Eagle Point. As a member of the Eagle Point School Board, she has voted to eliminate any and all sex education from the curriculum.
McIntire is endorsed by Oregon Pro Life. In light of her positions, young girls would be left ignorant of how to protect themselves from pregnancy, then forced to give birth to a child they are not prepared for. As a nurse practitioner, I have seen children as young as 12 who realized too late that they were pregnant, who were terribly traumatized by having to bear a child, with lifelong educational and mental health consequences.
Support women’s right to choose. Vote for Jonathan Chenjeri.
