Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:   The 2018 Minnesota Legislative Session ended without the progress we needed to see for family farmers and rural communities. That’s exactly what large-scale corporate ag wanted: business as usual. Corporate ag keeps building and expanding, running family farmers off the land and...
To the Editor:      Sit on a committee?  Help at a church, hospital, or school event?  Volunteer to drive?  Mow lawns?  Find a way. Motivations for volunteering are numerous, personal, unique; e.g. helping others, feeling needed, being productive, less isolated.  Be involved in something you’re...
To the Editor:   Within the next few years our communities will lay to rest the last of our WWII Veterans, with regret but also wishing them well in their new life.  This Memorial Day is an opportunity to pay particular attention to their stories, which used to be told in person by those who were...
To the Editor:   In recognition of National Police Week 2018, communities across the United States will come together May 13-19 to honor and remember those law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as the family members, friends and fellow officers they left behind. -There...

After a church service, I was introduced to a young man by the name of Jesse, who along with his wife and family were shunned, asking other...
To the Editor:   I am really mad and I am going to tell you why.  The story is both political and personal, but mostly personal.  It involves some bad actors in the Minnesota Senate and the way their recent behavior undermined my faith in the essential integrity of the political process. Last week...
To the Editor:   Every year, millions of people’s lives are forever changed by crime. They are our families, neighbors, friends, and colleagues. Crime victims often struggle to work, pay bills, or support their loved ones. Many have life-changing injuries and need long-term care and support. April...
To the Editor:   With all the bad news in the world, this event lifted my heart and I want to share it. Driving home last Monday afternoon on the icy roads I slid in the ditch. It was very frightening for me and it was my first time in the ditch. Eight men including the Fed Ex man, the snow plow...
To the Editor:   Dear commissioners and the citizens of Todd County: I am compelled to write this letter to share with you that I stand with our Amish friends and neighbors. I want to advocate for them as they pursue their hope to establish a greenhouse/business on their property. First, let me...
To the Editor:   In response to the letter by Nancy Taft, 3-21-18, it is not just my opinion but obviously Nancy Taft attended different county meetings than I was at. A lot of people attended the planning and zoning commission meeting and Todd County Board of Commissioners meetings. I did not take...
