Letters to the Editor

To the editor: Read the article about condemning the house north of the Culligan offices, and I know there is more property on the city’s list. My question is, “Where is all this money that the city is spending coming from?” At the Aug. 18 council meeting they let us know that Luverne has the...
  To the Editor: As a member of the Rock County V.F.W., I would like to give all the people involved with putting the Flag Park together a great “Thank You.” It gives me a great feeling of pride every time I go by it, and it makes the city that much more appealing. Thank you much! Buck Underwood...
  To the Editor The Tri-State Band Festival Committee would like to salute the Luverne community for its overwhelming support and participation in the 65th Annual Tri-State Band Festival.  This event would not happen without the involvement, commitment and energy of so many businesses,...
  To the Editor: Having been a teacher at Southwestern Youth Services for many years, one of the things I have learned is how important it is to seize on those “teachable moments.”  You know the ones: they come unexpectedly, at odd times and often don’t have any relevance to the classroom lesson...

  To the Editor: Assisted living is a critical component of long-term care. At Poplar Creek Assisted Living and Oaks Independent Living facilities, we pride ourselves on caring for all aspects of each unique resident.  That’s why we are excited to see the theme for this year’s National Assisted...
    To the Editor: When is enough enough? I heard over the weekend the Cardinal Club is not selling their coupon cards this year. Someone called and didn't like the local smoke shop being included on the card. Now, the smoke shop is a chamber member and sells legal products. I don't smoke, but that...
  To the Editor: How do you thank a town?  How does a family express gratitude to a community? In 1999 our parents retired from their beloved farm life near Adrian and moved to town. They moved to Luverne.  On July 31, after several weeks of failing health, our mother died in the loving embrace of...
  To the Editor: Like many others worldwide, I have been angered and saddened during the last week by reports of the illegal killing of Cecil the lion in East Africa by a dentist from Minnesota. Cecil was a well-known and beloved animal, popular with tourists and part of a research study. All the...
  To the Editor: I agree with David Kolsrud’s letter to the editor (July 16, 2015,) but we should remember that when on TV (“Meet the Press”) in the ’80s, our president said, “The sooner we get more cooperative farms, we will be able to feed the whole world.” He also said, “High interest is part of...
