Letter: Budget delays a real solution
To the editor, We did it again. We have once again delayed solving Minnesota's budget problems. And we did it by borrowing money from schools and shirking our responsibility by pawning the tough decisions off to city and county governments. I really want to stress "we" because...

Letter: Police need help with dangerous animals
To the editor, When did the Farmington Police Department cut funds for animal control? We had two Rotweilers running through our neighborhood. These two dogs were hungry, thirsty and confused which can add up to a dangerous situation with any dog breed. We managed to get them in...

Thank you: Sam's Club has been generous to Trinity campus
Many Farmington residents seem to have a negative attitude towards Sam's Club. I have been a shopper at Sam's Clubs both personally and when purchasing for the needs of Trinity Campus. While we do much of our shopping locally and strive to support local businesses, for some items,...

Letter: Teachers deserve more respect
To the editor, I recently read a New York Times opinion piece titled, High Cost of Low Teacher Salaries. It makes this point: in the military, our soldiers are sent out to do a job. If that job fails or is not done correctly, or has a history of not performing well, the focus...

Letter: Please don't take the Vikings from Minnesota
To the editor, My love and passion for the Vikings started when I was just 6 years old. My grandfather took me down to Mankato to watch the Vikings training camp. I remember wearing a No. 80 Cris Carter jersey, when the players began to take the field for practice. As I was watching,...

How many of you who drive on 195th Street, aka Co. Rd. 64, west towards Flagstaff, have had to swerve into the eastbound lane to avoid the pothole by Meadowview Elementary School? Well, I made the choice to avoid a head-on collision on the evening of April 20 and hit the pothole,...

Letter: Time to merge Farmington and Lakeville districts?
To the editor, I want to put this idea in front of the residents and school board members of Farmington and Lakeville school districts. Due to recent developments in both districts I think reasonable savings can be made by merging these two school districts together. As both districts...
