Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor:   January is National Stalking Awareness Month, a time to focus on a crime that affected 7.5 million victims in one year. This year’s theme – “Stalking: Know It. Name It.

To the Editor,   There is no possible way to say Thank You enough to all those who participated in the Bright Friday Night Celebration. From the donations to the participation: in the movie, the petting zoo, the parade, visiting Santa, to the oohs and aaahs at the fireworks.  It was over whelming...
To the Editor,   Wow! What a great day in Long Prairie on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  The parade was great and the fire works were spectacular.

We began in Staples, Bertha and Long Prairie and worked our way to Pine Island, MN. We discovered our grandfather F.A. Zappe was one of...
Letter to the Editor:    I have been following the meetings and am not happy how things are going.  Again, we have lost transparency, the public not informed, and public opinion does not seem to matter!  I understand that Commissioner Kircher “says” he wants constituents to express their opinions (...
10. If you need help thinking positive or thinking “outside the box”, come see the bathroom Dr. Christie built in his house 10 years before the city put in a sewer system! 9. The carriage house is a treasure all by itself! The horses and milk-cow lived in the basement, and Dr. Christie could notify...
