Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:   Having been raised in small town U.S.A., Long Prairie, my parents taught me if you can’t say anything good about a person, don’t say anything at all. I assume Tim King’s parents didn’t teach him that.  Not liking a president for his policies is one thing, but to bash President...
To the Editor:   In an effort to clear out excess clutter, we held a free garage sale.  Our objective was to get rid of unneeded, but usable, items. We just asked that anyone who took something make a donation to either the Long Prairie Fire Department or the Long Prairie Emergency Food Pantry. ...
To the Editor:   Page 6A of the 6-24-20 issue from the Leader has a three-column headline that states that “Richard Dahl seeks to unseat Sen. Paul Gazelka in Dist. 9.” Is this an editorial, or is it a news article? If the latter, it is rife with fake news. The second sentence of the lead paragraph...
To the Editor:   As a college community, we have struggled with how best to respond to the recent act of violence against George Floyd and historically against people of color and American Indians, locally, across the state and our nation. We share the pain, anger and frustration reflected...
To the Editor:   Elder abuse is widespread. Every year an estimated 1 in 10 older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. And that’s only part of the picture: Experts believe that elder abuse is significantly under-reported, in part because so many of our communities lack...
To the Editor:    I remember back in the 1980’s when farmers were being confronted by an economic crisis more severe than any since the Great Depression. At that time, many farmers and farm related businesses were facing financial ruin. It was during that time of crisis that St Cloud Catholic...
To the Editor:   The Todd County CAD (Creating A Difference) Coalition deeply appreciates Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka for supporting legislation that raises Minnesota’s tobacco age to 21. Thanks to the bipartisan efforts of lawmakers like Senator Gazelka, Minnesota is the 25th state to sign...
To the editor:   I’m always in awe of the generosity of various organizations, businesses and individuals in our community and surrounding area as they donate food  or money to the Long Prairie Emergency Food Pantry. It’s heartwarming to see the care and concern for those less fortunate and gong...
To the Editor:   It’s become increasingly evident that the irregular column, called Towel Road, found in the LP Leader is being written by bots,  A bot is a computer system that hides in the weeds (think snake in the grass) and automatically generates false information for social media about...
To the Editor:   To the Class of 2020 You are creating history right now! You have the choice of how you move forward. The future is yours to create and I challenge you to make our world a better place. Congratulations on your achievement during these difficult times.   Chuck Wolf Long Prairie
