Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: I am amazed at how far we’ve come in the last 50 years. Our biggest accomplishment has probably been getting our women out of the house and into the workforce. There has been another more recent milestone you may have overlooked. Our school-aged children are now mature enough to...
To the Editor: Each year, usually in May, you see citizens wearing little red crepe paper poppies.  These flowers, the memorial flowers of the American Legion Auxiliary, are offered to you by volunteers of the American Legion Post #123. This year in Luverne Poppy Day will be Thursday, May 26. This...

To the Editor: The other day I happened to be looking through my atlas, and I discovered that the United States has two borders, one longer than the other. Hmm?

To the Editor: Minnesota has endorsed Rubio and the “Bern.” We’ve seen how Rubio will probably end up, but doesn’t the “Bern” make your heart glow? The media says the “Bern” wants to be the first democratic socialist president of the United States. I suppose that means that he likes to socialize...
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...

The Rural Medical Scholars Program (RMSP...

This is the last year of my term, and after serving on the council for 12 years it’s time for me to step down...
