To the Editor: It’s the holiday season, and that means toy-sharing and gift-giving are in full swing. But before you give that special child a new toy, it’s important to stop and consider:iIs this toy safe and age-appropriate? Unfortunately, thousands of children are hurt or even killed each year...
To the Editor: Different people handle conflict in different ways. At the end of the conflict, some people move along as if nothing happened. Others need closure.

Editor’s Note: The following is a response from write-in candidate to the LPGE School Board. This candidate was included with the original slate of candidates.

My goodness! Have you...
To the Editor:   Runaway inflation, now in excess of 9%, has many Americans suffering.  I am so sick of hearing Biden and the media telling me the president is “doing all he can”.  First of all, much of the problem is self-imposed.  Biden has surrounded himself with incompetent people.  He was more...
To the Editor:   On April, 19, 2022, there was a meeting regarding the county taxation of its citizens and their businesses. This meeting was held in the Arena at the Long Prairie Fairgrounds.
