Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: I greet you with lament from the nation’s capital. Many of you have read in my favorite weekly paper, or heard my messages in church, about our need as a country to treat each other with greater compassionate listening and love during these challenging times. COVID-19 and the events...
To the Editor: These are unusual times. We are learning new ways to deal with lifewhen it throws a curve ball. I remember listening to my grandparents tell of the Dirty Thirties, the polio epidemic, the difficulties of too wet, too dry, or storms that damage homes and fields. Those were just...
To the Editor:        As I never received the email from the Star-Herald last week for comments on what happened in Special Session, I thought it would be good to share with you some of the events which led to the Senate adjourning on Saturday morning, June 20.        A number of days prior to that...

To the Editor:        Holy buckets of septic tank covers! People hoarding T.P.! Did I miss something? Did Bernie win the election?        Actually, T.P. is soft and cuddly and can be comforting to us in this time of near apocalypse. Better than an old newspaper or a corncob anyway.        And...
To the Editor:      Thank you, Kat Dahl, for your thoughtful, intelligent editorial.      Tragically, our dangerously inept commander in chief ignored experts on the science of contagion and didn’t take the steps necessary to attack its spread. Now his missteps are affecting us here in Rock County...
To the Editor: Greetings to you all. I hope you all are taking care of yourselves, both physically and mentally. At this time our communities are gearing up for an unprecedented pandemic that will affect everyone. Something I would like to highlight at this time is our mental state during the...
An imaginary message from God: While you’re in time-out, reconnect with your family; come to me in prayer   To the Editor: Thinking about the worldwide pandemic, I was reflecting back on times when God had had enough of the sins of the world and took drastic action to effect a major correction in...
