Last week was a bad week for Donald Trump Sr.  As a result, he and his supporters are becoming more unhinged and beyond reason. Looney! On Tuesday Trump’s hand-picked lap dog, Herschel Walker, lost the run-off election for U.S. Senate to Senator Ralph Warnock.   "Herschel was a fantastic athlete,...
With the holiday season upon us and concerts around the corner, it is the perfect time to talk a little about our arts program.  December 5th, we have our 6-12 Band concert at 7 PM in the Secondary Auditorium.  On December 8th we have our K-2 Music program at 1:30 in the Elementary Big Gym with the...
To the Editor: I would like to thank everyone who took the time and effort to write my name in on the Nov. 8, 2022 ballot for one of the three positions open at the Long Prairie-Grey Eagle school board. During the campaign period, I visited with many people in Long Prairie, Grey Eagle, and...
To the Editor:   They did it again! Yup, they cheated, fraudulently winning in the governor’s race in Arizona. Nothing has changed from 2020.  You can almost always be sure that when there is a delay in the counting process, the losing side (Usually Democrats) has to turn to Plan B which has a...

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...
Why did my taxes change?!  Coming in December is the annual Truth in Taxation meeting, being held just prior to the regular board meeting.  This is a time for taxpayers to come in and ask questions about the taxes levied by the school district and to inquire about how those public funds are used. ...
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. I happen to be the type that likes to have a matter neatly closed and put on the shelf. It is for this reason I submit today’s letter,...
 Tim Kings column in the Nov. 9 Leader, makes me wonder, just what it will take, or if it will even be possible, to wake the useful idiots up. Our government has become totally corrupted and teetering on the edge of collapsing into an authoritarian communist style abyss, and he only worries about...
