What this refers to is, some people have a personal gripe with
certain individuals and try to use Spilyay Tymoo as a middle person
on expressing personal feelings towards these people which is slan
derous and degrading. People should deal directly with who they are
having disputes with and not get others involved. Sometimes discus
sions between individuals can work wonders rather than beating
around the bush.
From time to time we receive letters to the editor that are personal
and are slanderous attacks on certain personnel of the tribal organization
handled between the two parties involved and not
v with personal leelings. hp ll people wonder wny some letters to me District509-J'sChaptcrI-Migrant

This sure looks like a bad year from the water stand-point. With the
big drought, some springs and small streams that used to flow year
; round are drying up. There are a lot of small springs that have dried up
! already and water for the stock in the higher country is scarce.
This could make a fire hazard as all the grass has turned yellow, and
: dry as a bone. In many communities here in Central Oregon they are
' warning home owners to be prepared for wild fires. In some areas there
are a lot of shrubbery near homes that should be removed and cleared
out. All home owners should have some plan of attack on the wild
fires. Fire is something not to be messed with, cause it can get pretty
There already have been some pretty hot fires around the Bend area
where homes have been burned out. Well I guess we'll just have to give
up smoking in the woods for fearof fires....it only gives you bad breath

To the editor:
I'm writing to humble myself and
ask forgiveness from my wife Jana
E. Jackson. I myself is very much to
blame for our separation. I'm sorry
for all my wrong doings, that is why
I'm asking for another chanceat being
a better person and devoted husband,
regardless of my past failures of be
coming a responsible husband and
father. I hope I can become the true
friend my wife needs. My marriage
does mean a lot to me. I need to
develop a method that I can control
and work on so our relationship
marriage can grow. I know my anger
is a big part of my downfall with my
spouse. I just need time to work my
behaviors out. I just hope my mar
riage ain't at risk for what I did. I'm
very sorry. I just want my wife to
know I do love her very much, same
goes to my three daughters. I don't
want to lose any of them.

Smith, Sr. I also would like to thank
the others who helped and those who

days shy of being a forty year mem
ber. Thank you.

There was this moron on the Olympic Wrestling Team. While
wanning up for his match he injured his groin. The doctor told him to
drink plenty of orange juice after a hot bath.
Later that day the doctor called to see how he was doing, "Are you
drinking the orange juice?" the doc asked.
"Gimme ah break," said the moron, "I've still got half the bath to
drink yet" YIKES
