Taking a closer look at county’s financial crisis

 

The financial crisis facing Curry and others rural Oregon counties  has its roots in several events over three decades, and it has no clear solution in the near future.

Letters to the editor: Keep them civil

We are not interested in letters that only incite and antagonize rather than debate the issues. Readers tell us they feel the same.
