  • To the editor: Sara Josepha Hale (1788-1879) was an editor and writer who encouraged President Abraham Lincoln to proclaim a national day of thanksgiving. 
  • I hate winter.
    Readers are probably thinking I’ve written this column before. The one when I say my skin is dry, I fall on ice, I’m cold to my bones, my lips are chapped and my hair is full of static. 
  • To the editor: It becomes clearer every day that the long dreamed of swimming pool to be known as the Portland Water Park will soon become a reality. 
  • To the editor: Achievement is defined as the result gained by effort. 
  • I don’t do nothing well.
    That’s not really a double negative.
    What I don’t excel at is doing “nothing.” 
  • To the editor:
    Xi Chapter, Delta Theta Tau, Portland, would like to thank the many individuals that participated in the success of Xi Chapter’s 30th annual “Delts’ Holiday Arts and Crafts Show”. 
  • To the editor: Many of you know what I have been through these past few months. 
  • To the editor:
    For someone who has never particularly enjoyed or understood football, the 2014 Jay County season was an eye-opener. 
  • If Don Cochran says it’s a bad idea, it’s a bad idea. 
  • There are words — like “bae” and “obvi” — that should probably be banned from being used, but “feminist” isn’t one of them. 
  • To the editor: Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and the committee for the 24th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner is busy making preparations for serving a hearty and festive meal to hundreds of individuals. 
  • To the editor:
    We, the Portland American Legion Honor Guard, would like to thank everyone for their attendance to the Freedom Park Veterans Day Celebration. 
  • To the editor: The Midwest Pet Refuge would like to thank the vendors and everyone who volunteered their time and resources to help make our Pack the Park event successful. 
  • A poet died last week, a guy you’ve probably never heard of. 
  • To the editor: I am a former Portland resident, a proud graduate of the class of ’66.
