Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: Back when I was young and full of hope, Mom stayed home and took care of the family, and Dad went off to work or war. Then our enlightened government decided they had to take care of us, cradle to grave. Dad still went to work or war, but Mom had to go to work, and the kids had to go...
To the Editor: This is a reply to Rick Peterson’s question as to why the red line in hockey is red. The line has two purposes: first, to divide the rink in half; second, as a line to help with a game delay called “icing.” It started as a solid line, but with the invention of black and white TV, the...
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.

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...
