To the Editor:   During the January 17th Council Meeting, the council approved moving forward with the sale of 38 acres to Central Bi at the cost of $30,000…. interesting.  In the February 1st edition of the Leader, City Administrator Ted Gray stated that Central Bi has used and operated city...
The Long Prairie-Grey Eagle School works with many community organizations.  One organization that we work with frequently for safety and character development of our students is our local police department.    We have worked with Officer Preston Oetterer to bring back the D.A.R.E. program.  This...
To the Editor:   Jesus’ teachings were introduced to me at a young age. The Golden Rule is brilliant. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
