Pendleton and Eastern Oregon should be extremely proud of the outstanding quality of its daily newspaper — the East Oregonian. While other newspapers suffer from reduced editorial staff, the EO has maintained its staff levels and provided quality coverage from Morrow to Umatilla counties and beyond.

There are no stronger reporters than the two senior members of the staff — Kathy Aney and Phil Wright, who is now leading The Observer in La Grande as its editor.

Keep up the great work, and I hope you’ll join me in thanking everyone at the EO for keeping the First Amendment alive in the beautiful country of Eastern Oregon.
