letter to the editor

To the Editor: It is refreshing to see that the Grand Old Party (GOP) is making Minnesota’s First Congressional District a race worthy of backing, with the goal of replacing incumbent Democrat Tim Walz in 2018. In his more than 10 years in Congress, the voters in the First Congressional District...
To the Editor: Reading Mr. Pick’s letter reminded me to look on the other side of things. I agree that 1,700 firms should pay taxes. However, it was 536 politicians in D.C. that passed laws that made it possible for them to avoid paying taxes. Also, is it possible that a man who has been married...
To the Editor: I wrote this poem years ago, but the events of the past week prompted me to consider it once again.   Red White and Blue in the Darkness America, America, God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea. The stars and stripes is draped From...
To the Editor: As someone who has recently lost our mother, we would like to thank the people that worked so hard to get the Minnesota Veterans Home located here in Luverne.

To the Editor: I should have known. Yep, I just should have known. Looking back now, all my worry was for naught. Let me explain: Albeit there are some students transferring in and out during the school year in most public schools, Southwestern Youth Services (SYS) is not like others where the...
Letter to Kenneth: A note from Kerry Boese to those who once made up Kenneth Lutheran Church: On July 13, 1986, I was ordained as a pastor in what was then the American Lutheran Church.  On this, the 30th anniversary of my ordination, I find myself reflecting on my faith walk and remember those who...
To the Editor: Do we want a politician or a senator that will represent us and get things done? As she stated, he lectured the governor on how to do his job. Are we to just figure the governor does everything correct and accept it? Respect for the governor is one thing, BUT that should be for all...
To the Editor: I would like to write a short note about the Luverne High School boys’ tennis team. We had the opportunity to play the Cardinals of Luverne in the Minnesota High School state boys consolation finals. Our tennis team had played an extremely tough schedule during the spring of 2016. We...
