Lincoln City Homepage Letters to the editor

My mom is 92 and has bouts with bronchitis, so I figured when Gov. Brown announced seniors would soon be getting the COVID-19 vaccine, mom would be at the head of the line.

I called her doctor and he sent me to the state’s COVID website. Upon reading its contents, I thought for sure it was written by the Shultz character in the old sitcom Hogan Hero’s that had the tag line: “I know nothing.”

Teachers it seems are on a different track. Teachers have already been contacted and are getting inoculated…what?

So here’s a question: What are the “at risk,” at risk of? Isn’t the answer dying?

While it’s true teachers jobs place them “at risk” for catching COVID-19, for the “truly at risk” COVID-19 is fatal. For teachers COVID-19 is paid sick leave.

Here’s my second question — and its an easy yes or no unless your Gov. Brown or her teachers union — When teachers cut line, will some “at risk” pay with their lives? Regular folks know the answer.

  1. Update:
    I have diligently been trying to sign up my mom for the vaccine. I have continued to get emails giving me dates and times for appointments which are always filled up. Now they have dropped the age to 70.
    Thanks for the encouragement Kevin and to Daniel great nonsensical talking points, you are an example of the “progressives” who own this state. Something you left out? Over half the schools are still closed.

  2. I just noticed this letter.
    All the underlying conditions that teachers have I see from watching the
    news, is that they are selfserving and selfish.
    The schools are not even open across most of the country.
    No way does anyone under 92 without bronchitis deserve to be put
    ahead of Cary Moore’s mother.
    Personally, seeing what children are being taught nowadays, makes me
    have less, if any respect for teachers. I am blessed to have went to school
    in the “old” America. Don’t like this? Too bad.

  3. RE: Teachers shove “at risk” out of vaccine line

    To say for teachers Covid is just a paid day off is ignoring the fact that many teachers have underlying health issues and even if they don’t die they could suffer long term illness. We need to get kids back in school and teachers have a high risk of exposure if kids come back to the classroom for in person learning. We are in danger of doing damage to a whole generation of kids. I don’t mean to sound callous. Hopefully your mother is in line and will get her vaccination ASAP.
