Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: My mother, Doris Engelson Plahn, died in December at the age of 98. Her obituary carried the usual information about her birth, life and death, but were fortunate that Mom had a fantastic memory and shared details from her youth that an obituary can’t convey. She talked about...
To the Editor: Congratulations, Rock County. The Salvation Army had its second-highest giving total this Christmas season at nearly $7,700. This could not have been accomplished without our dedicated volunteer bell ringers. This year, in addition to the many individuals who volunteered their time,...
To the Editor: I recently saw a meme on Facebook that caught my attention. It said, “Stalking is a strong word. I prefer to say intensive research of an individual.” Many of us use the term “stalk” in a variety of jokes. And if we are being honest, who hasn’t used online resources to discreetly...
To the Editor: As we consider our blessings this Christmas season, let's remember the gift of freedom that our current and past military service people have so generously provided.

To the Editor: In this most unusual of political seasons, it continues to be a wonder to me that so many people who purport to be good Christians will, in fact, actually hate one or the other of our presidential candidates. Is there room for “hate” in politics, or otherwise, in the Gospel of Jesus...
To the Editor: Have you heard about this Kaepernick dude? Professional football player who won’t stand for the National Anthem because of what he perceives as racial injustice? Hello! This guy plays in the NFL. Let’s talk real disparity. Racial disparity: How many white faces do you see in the...
To the Editor: I enjoy looking through phrases, slogans and titles to see the other side of their meaning. A few weeks ago while I was visiting friends and relatives in Oklahoma City, I was able to indulge my enjoyment. I saw a lawn service truck with the company name, “No More Weeds.” If it was...
