To the editor:
I would like to "thank" the
person who dug up the rose
bush we planted by the old
swimming pool. The one you
put in its place was dead.
I would like to ask you why
you did that? You didn't take
somthing from us, but from
everyone in this city, who en­
joys something on their walks
other than weeds, which, by
the way used to cover this en­
tire block.
We have planted trees,
shrubs and flowers. We have
cleaned up broken glass, old
rusty nails and all kinds or gar­
bage so everyone can enjoy it
more. We also water and main­
tain it for the better of all.
What you did is one reason
so many feel like, why give up
their time effort and expense?
So on behalf of all in this city
who do want to take pride in
the effort they have put forth
in our city, so all can enjoy it
just a little bit more. I say
shame on you.

Don't turn back on child abuse
To the editor:
I have often asked myself,
why do people turn their backs
when they know a child is be­
ing abused? Most people hear
the abuse and see the abuse the
children are forced to tolerate,
children are forced to tolerate.
Most individuals know child
think either it's not their
responsibility to interfere, or
they fear revenge from the
abusive parent(s).
I always hear, the authorities
should do something. But they
can't even begin to without a
complaint first. Then the
authorities have to investigate,
which requires a lot of paper­
work, before they can even
beging to investigate. Part of in­
vestigating means asking the
abusers questions. They also
question the child sometimes
they are too afraid to tell the
truth. Most neighbors don't
want to get involved, especial­
ly if it means going to court. So
conveniently friends, neighbors
and relatives forget to tell police
or CSD what they see, hear and
know so the cycle continues.
The child goes back to the
abusive home, if they had even

At this point the abuse not
only continues, it usually gets
worse because the parent(s)
blame the child for the trouble
(they caused). After going
through this a couple of times
children because of terror don't
talk about what happens to
them at home any more. They
start to learn talking gets them
hurt more.
We as a society and the
system let these kids down in
too many instances. If any of
you wonder why we have so
many people in jails or mental
institutions just think about it.
If you are an abuser, get help.
There is a Parents Anonymous
meeting every Thursday night
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the back of
St. Pat's Church in Heppner.
The meetings are free. They
also have free baby sitting
while the parents are in the
meeting. At the PA meeting
they can also give parents other
info on places they can also go.
If you are reading this and
not a parent and know about a
child being abused report it.
Think of the child, not excuses
to ignore the problem.
