    Harnack: 'Am I here all alone?' Am I here all alone?!   From the moment I could listen, My parents said to me, “Always treat people with respect, The way you want to be.”   They also told me not to boast, Don’t brag, don’t bully, or lie, ’cause you will have to answer to these, The moment that you die.   I learned the “Sermon on the Mount,” Memorized the “Beatitudes.” But, it seems…

    State Representative Joe Schomacker (R-Luverne) said good and bad can be found in Minnesota's latest economic update. Our state’s fiscal experts are projecting that Minnesota will see a $3.7 billion budget surplus for the remainder of the current budget term.

    Minnesotans seek assistance from U.S. government agencies for a variety of reasons — whether it’s to get an answer about Social Security, access to veterans benefits, or assistance with renewing a passport. But, too often bureaucratic red tape gets in the way. That’s why our state office makes it a priority to cut through this red tape to get action and answers. Last year alone, our office…

    A way to fight inflation Letter to the Editor: Rejoice in fake news (and what we can do to fix it). To everyone who thinks our boy Trump is a true Christian, I got news for you. The “insurrection” of 1/6/2021 was nothing but a “show” for whose syllable antecedent isn’t worthy of human waste. Re-elect “Damien” and we destroy all that America stands for. MAGA rioters are declaring war against…

    Sandbulte: Post office is struggling Letter to the Editor: As a retired rural carrier with the post office, I think I can respond to some of the complaints against the local service. For the last three years I have come out of retirement to help deliver packages during the holiday season. This past session was by far the worst. It appeared to me, that Amazon was short of help too, so the…

    Murphy: Mail delivery issue To the Editor: We have an apparent issue with mail delivery in Rock County. The USPS is very short-staffed at our Luverne office; however, they do not advertise locally for help. We have numerous businesses that advertise in our Luverne Announcer and Rock County Star Herald assuming their purchased advertising reaches a certain number in circulation. That is not…

    Thone: 'Paper rules have no relevance...' Letter to the Editor: The paper rules have no relevance for the innocent. The rules of God define the innocent. The rules of man punish the criminals.  God’s Rule:  Do no harm or damage to person, place, or thing, willfully or with extreme negligence.   This government excels at forced choices, forced permissions, financially raping and jailing the…

    Fick: 'Let the doctors decide if this drug is needed' To the Editor: Glad to see the decisions made by the county commissioners and other people of authority in regard to the marijuana situation.

    Thone: 'This government is corrupt to the core...' To the Editor: In God’s court he requires us to love him with all of our heart, mind and soul. To love others and ourselves.

I and everyone else don’t need to pay you or anyone else to move in…

    Keitel: 'Our water has become tainted' Letter to the Editor: I grew up in rural Luverne and understood crops, birds, rivers, streams, beaver, muskrat, snapping turtles, river bottoms and sand pits. I utilized the spring water that flowed out of the earth like a gift from God. My first spring water was from the Blue Mounds where a pipe came out of the side of a hill and filled glass…

    Frakes: 'Two-letter word' To the Editor: We’ve been seeing and hearing a lot about abortion these days. They talk about the fact that a woman should have the right to control her own body, but the real fact is that abortion is a reward to a woman who couldn’t control her body. I know that it hasn’t been that long ago that we thought storks brought the babies, but modern science has…
