Opinion

To the Editor: I am ashamed of the people who persecute and demean Robin Hensel. She did not create the law to prohibit garage sale signs. Is it written in the Constitution? Is it a state law? Is it a city law? If you feel the law is false, change it. We the people are [...]

To the Editor: Ron Kresha has a bad habit. Kresha tells us he supports things that are important to us, but it turns out he voted against funding those things. Kresha has said that on his website, on Facebook, on his literature and in radio ads. It’s not an accident; it’s a bad habit. I’m [...]

To the Editor: Someone help me understand: I own a 20-acre farm next to the proposed site of a tier II turkey factory. Buildings will be 400 feet from my property which is 740-feet by 1,120-feet.

To the Editor: I commend you Tom Anderson for your letter to the editor, concerning the Smith trial. As a “lay person” we aren’t aware of all the facts in any court case. We can only think, hope and pray that the court system would have all the facts. Why didn’t this occur? Do we [...]

To the Editor: While Al Doty was on his previous tour in the state Legislature, a bill to eliminate state income tax on military pay was moving through the Legislature. None of our neighboring states require these payments. I personally discussed this bill with Doty and asked for his support. However, he refused and the [...]

To the Editor: Last week I attended the County Board meeting and after adjourning, the planning session for the future direction of Morrison County Public Health was discussed. I was deeply concerned with the lack of leadership taken by the commissioners. With the time and dollars being spent in unnecessary restructuring, the elimination of the [...]
