Thank you: Peterson family appreciates support
Someone has said that the Inuit of Canada’s North Country have over 100 words for snow. We wish there were that many for thank you, because we would use every one of them in this letter. It’s also said that whatever we possess becomes of double value when we share it with others....

Letter to the editor: Editorial on Faith United Methodist was insensitive
To the editor, After reading your editorial regarding Faith United Methodist Church, I have to ask the question: Did you talk to anyone who is an actual member of that church before writing this article, or did you just talk to the district superintendent? The members of the church...

Letter: ‘Wasteful and annoying’ deposit proposal would cause problems
To the editor, Democrats at the Capitol are pushing a plan to require Minnesotans to pay a 10 cent deposit on almost all beverage containers. While seemingly well intentioned, this proposal will result in reducing recycling rates, wasting the time of consumers and costing you more...
