Letters to the Editor

    To the Editor: The progressives would like to open our borders to everyone who would like to come on board. Some would even get rid of immigration agents themselves. Part of the reason they say we need to do this is the fact that we need more workers. I find this more than curious. This is the same outfit that literally throws hundreds of thousands of little new baby Americans out with the…

    To the Editor: When I read Superintendent Oftedahl’s editorial in the Sept. 21 issue of the Star Herald (Nov. 7 referendum asks district residents to make a difference), I couldn’t help but smile and nod to myself in agreement. Supt. Oftedahl said, “The idea of making a difference is essential to education.” I’m raising my children to make a difference — and Luverne Public Schools teachers and…

    To the Editor: The Tri-State Band Festival Committee would like to salute the Luverne community for the overwhelming support and participation in the 67h Annual Tri-State Band Festival. This event would not happen without the involvement, commitment and energy of businesses, organizations and individuals in the tri-state region. We would like to specifically acknowledge the tremendous…

    To the Editor: We traveled from our home in Florida to visit my brother Ardell  and his wife Jayona and family over Labor Day weekend. We had a wonderful time but for one thing. I had looked forward to visiting the new Rock County Museum. By the time we arrived on Saturday, Sept. 2, it was closed and was not open again either Sunday or Monday Labor Day. I do not understand why the decision to…

    To the Editor: I had the opportunity to serve water to the participants at the Tri-State Band Festival. I was so encouraged by the appreciation and respect demonstrated by the students. Every one of them said thank you and more as we offered our small gift. I noticed the same courtesies illustrated as we worked with the boys from Southwestern Youth Services a couple of weeks ago. Kudos to the…

    To the Editor: Almost incredibly a Minnesota judge, John R. Tunheim, just ruled that a media production business based in Minnesota cannot post a statement on their website saying they would not make films celebrating same-sex marriages. In his odd decision the judge managed to offend millions of decent moral white people by comparing white skin to sexual aberrations! The judge actually said that…

    To the Editor: There are a lot of things I like about living in Luverne. It is a clean and well kept up city. They have made investments to improve storefronts and upgrade the corner of Highway 75 and Main Street. I live in the Tri-State addition where it is a nice quiet part of town, where we see turkeys and deer often roaming about the trees and green grassy space on Roundwind Road. I enjoy…

    To the Editor: We want to let everyone know how proud we are of our beautiful and clean city. Hats off to the city of Luverne, Chamber of Commerce, business owners and to all others who do their part to make this possible. We hear many compliments from visitors to our city. Yes, we “Love Luverne” and are proud and blessed to be residents here. Connie Wieneke The Pool and Coffee Pals Luverne P.S.…

    To the Editor: Luverne has made many positive changes in the past few years as we envision our future. I’d like to share my own thoughts on the subject, specifically regarding food and agriculture.  I grew up on a Rock County farm and have lived here all but about three years of my life. I’m delighted that our farmers and gardeners are producing more fruits, vegetables, and other local products,…

    To the Editor: Once again we have to increase the debt ceiling. What is that? That’s when you spend more than you take in. Families go without — government just borrows more — they sell bonds. We borrow from Japan and China and must pay interest yearly. The rest we borrow from ourselves. Case in point. The Social Security Administration, which has accumulated a surplus since it was first set up…

    To the Editor: We all here at the Tri-State Addition received our letters from the city of Luverne in regard to the storm water drainage study. Well, we all know how that’s going to turn out. I have received countless thanks sticking up for my neighborhood and the citizens of Luverne who enjoy the Roundwind Road neighborhood in which the city of Luverne has plans to destroy. I think it is time…

    To the Editor: As the Third District V.F.W. Commander and Luverne Post 2757 Quartermaster, I would like to thank our V.F.W. baseball team and coaches for a great season. I was really impressed by your quality of ball playing. Keep up your great work, and I will be at Marshall in 2018 to cheer you on. Our team is championship quality. Buck Underwood Luverne

    To the Editor: It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the white supremacists. It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the neo-Nazis. It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the Ku Klux Klan. It should not be hard to call the murder of Heather Heyer an act of domestic terrorism. Staying silent when so-called patriots take to the streets with a violent agenda — spewing…

    To the Editor: A good premise and instruction for any government and people in general is to take care of those less fortunate than themselves. Now our government is turning the tables and with the Affordable Care Act, our government is creating a new problem and portion of the population that no longer can afford the imposed upon regulations. The Affordable Care Act is due to implode on itself…

    To the Editor: In 1995 I traveled from a small town in New Zealand to Luverne as an American Field Scholar.  I was greeted with warmth and hospitality by my host family, my classmates and numerous Luverne residents.  Throughout the year the Piepgras family became my other family, offering me security and unconditional love.  My classmates gave me acceptance, inclusion and friendship. I had a…

    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 Christ? Emphatically, there is not. Strong feelings? Yes, of course! But not hate. There is, I…
