Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: We the People have had enough. We value our loved ones. If you choose to not see your loved ones in person, so be it. But don’t tell us we can’t. Go visit your grandparents, quit living in fear. You don’t know what tomorrow holds, embrace those you love now. We value the right to...
To the Editor: Things I find perplexing, perhaps even contradictory: Why would we shut down a pipeline and transport oil by truck and rail?

Kracht: 'We need to call out our government' officials To the Editor: After reading our local newspaper’s half page ad with out mayor praising our governor’s budget proposal, I decided to look into what it all entailed.

It was very cold, and snowing outside, and the birds wanted in, before they died.   A man was home alone, counting his worth. While his family were in church, celebrating...
To the Editor: As former Luverne residents, Carole and I were very surprised of the reports that Senator Weber was among the Republican state senators that supported the efforts to oppose the election of Joe Biden. In the past I found Senator Weber to be a reasonable and well-thought-of city...
To the Editor: Places are closed, organizations have drastically shifted their service delivery, and plans have been canceled. This has become the norm during the pandemic of 2020. One thing that is not canceled is the holiday season. Many of us look forward to either going to a loved one’s house,...
To the Editor: I’ll bet I’m not the only one wondering what their family is doing for Thanksgiving this year.  What a wonderful time of the year. Seeing out-of-town relatives for the first time in a while. Sharing great food, drinks and stories. College kids coming home and catching up with high...
