Letters to the Editor

To the Editor, We are happy to see that the school board long-range facility plan includes a second question for voters about building a new performing arts center. We believe the proposed center would provide the right size venue for Luverne Public Schools student concerts and other performances...
To the Editor: When I read Superintendent Oftedahl’s editorial in the Sept. 21 issue of the Star Herald (Nov. 7 referendum asks district residents to make a difference), I couldn’t help but smile and nod to myself in agreement. Supt. Oftedahl said, “The idea of making a difference is essential to...
To the Editor: The Tri-State Band Festival Committee would like to salute the Luverne community for the overwhelming support and participation in the 67h Annual Tri-State Band Festival. This event would not happen without the involvement, commitment and energy of businesses, organizations and...
To the Editor: We traveled from our home in Florida to visit my brother Ardell  and his wife Jayona and family over Labor Day weekend. We had a wonderful time but for one thing.

To the Editor: We want to let everyone know how proud we are of our beautiful and clean city. Hats off to the city of Luverne, Chamber of Commerce, business owners and to all others who do their part to make this possible. We hear many compliments from visitors to our city. Yes, we “Love Luverne”...
To the Editor: Luverne has made many positive changes in the past few years as we envision our future. I’d like to share my own thoughts on the subject, specifically regarding food and agriculture.  I grew up on a Rock County farm and have lived here all but about three years of my life. I’m...
To the Editor: Once again we have to increase the debt ceiling. What is that? That’s when you spend more than you take in. Families go without — government just borrows more — they sell bonds. We borrow from Japan and China and must pay interest yearly. The rest we borrow from ourselves. Case in...
