To the Editor:   As you may have been made aware, after 43 years of medical marvel, CentraCare Health - Long Prairie’s Dr. Paul VanGorp has announced his plans to retire from practicing medicine. Through those 43 years, there are countless stories regarding Dr. VanGorp’s practice of his medical...
To the Editor:   I don’t personally support abortion, though I believe there are times when they are necessary. However, I am totally pro-choice, and believe it’s a woman decision to make, and not some pseudo Christian zealots, or legislative body. Now, Alabama, near last in everything, thinks that...
