Letters to the Editor

Lowell and Shirley Harrison, Luverne, are pictured with Thinh (Jackie) and her son, John Ta, on Dec. 19 in Kansas City, Missouri, for John’s 40th birthday celebration.
To the Editor: Some 40 years ago Luverne sponsored a Vietnamese family of 10 children. Although only the oldest daughter, Thinh, spoke English, both she and her father immediately went to work at A.R. Wood. Thinh (now Jackie), who left her husband behind, was pregnant. She had John on Christmas Day...
To the Editor: Another successful Red Kettle Campaign for Rock County has added $7,032 to local Salvation Army funds.  The many services provided in 2015 included  back-to-school supplies for county school children, supplies for special needs students that would otherwise not be provided, study...
To the Editor: Christmas At the Palace Committee would like to take this moment to thank the community for its support over the years by attending Christmas At the Palace. We sincerely appreciate all the participants over the years, and we want to recognize Terri Ebert for being the emcee for the...
To the Editor: I have been reading about and watching these college student protests and have encountered a conundrum that probably only these students could solve. How do you spell “do-fuss”? Is it dofuss? Dofus? Dufus? Dufuss? Duphious? Dophus? Duphuss??? Help! Dophous? Douphous? Dewphuss?...
To the Editor: Thank you for the recent coverage of “The Loop.” I humbly read the article and the attached document of the “Loop Trail Master Plan.” I am totally amazed at how far Holly Sammons and her team have come to make a vision reality. WOW! What an asset this is going to be to the city of...
To the Editor: The recent terrorist attack in San Bernadino brought much-needed scrutiny to the flaws in our current visa program. Lost in the discussion, however, has been the fact that we still don’t have control of our borders, and if ISIS has figured out how to game the visa system, you can be...
To the Editor: Memories: Of my home at 219 West Lincoln Street at the corner of Lincoln and Highway 75 from 1950 to the early 1960s. It was a beautiful house. It had three fireplaces that did not work but were beautiful décor, and the home also had a built-in china cupboard, pocket doors and...
Minnesota's economic experts have spoken, and they are projecting agreeable fiscal news for the state according to State Representative Joe Schomacker (R-Luverne). If the estimates hold, Minnesota could expect to see a surplus of $1.871 billion for the 2016-17 budget cycle. "We're seeing a...
To the Editor: I read Rick Peterson’s column concerning the Affordable Care Act, and a few quotes came to my mind. It led me to think. (Here’s trouble.) Dick Gregory, the black activist and comedian, said, “Everything we do we should look at in terms of the millions of people who can’t afford it.”...
    To the Editor: A few people have asked me why I’m not writing letters. It caused me to think. Yes, that’s trouble. I thought about “nothing to write.” That made me think of nothing or space. Space is an area of nothing. Typewriters have a spacebar that gives us an area of nothing between words...
