Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: Packing and moving out can be a monumental task, especially after 23 years of being in one building.  This is what the Council for Arts and Humanities in Rock County (CAHRC) faced in February and accomplished when it moved out of the Carnegie Cultural Center. It would not have...
To the Editor: What a beautiful tribute to the “Princess On Ice,” Erika Egdorf, in the March 17 issue of the Star Herald. Erika is a young woman who showed the world what one person can do if she puts her mind to it! You have the right to be proud of all your medals and trophies. And to think that...
To the Editor, We want to recognize the excellent family physicians and their colleagues in Luverne who have graciously and effectively served as teachers for medical students from the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth campus over the past year. The Rural Medical Scholars Program (RMSP...
To the Editor: In a couple of months, from May 17 to May 31, the filing period opens for individuals to announce their candidacy for local government positions. I will not be filing again.

In response to the Jan. 7th editorial titled, “Wipe your feet please!” Get over it. As an employee of two retail businesses here in Luverne, I can confirm that this isn’t the most pleasant part of the job; however I am actively aware I work in customer service. We service the customers, which, yes...
To the Editor: I am glad that someone printed an article (Star Herald editorial Jan. 7) regarding the manure tracked through town recently. Shortly after I read the editorial, I had the displeasure of a sighting, smelling at the post office and it was horrible. I wish the offender was still there...
At Southwestern Youth Services we have rolled up miles of red and green paper chain, packed away boxes of colorful ornaments and returned Christmas trees to their assigned spots in the attic. We have also reverted back to the reality of day-to-day living that, in the lives of our students, can...
