Letter to the Editor: Look at quality of ATV ordinance comments
The Crow Wing County ordinance change process requires a public comment period. The Crow Wing commissioners should take good note of the quality of many of these written comments and take less note of the quantity of the written comments. This is an electronic/digital communications...

Letter to the editor: Support for Enbridge's Line 3 replacement project
While energy and fuel are most often cited as reasons for the Line 3 replacement project, petroleum byproducts are another critical need. I can speak to that personally. Last year my 5-year-old son had two seizures after coming home from kindergarten. When I arrived from work, the...

Letter to the editor: WWIII is not a charm
Donald Trump is struggling wildly trying to keep his head above water in our White House. The floods he's battling are of his own making; he keeps blowing up dams, creating Johnstown-like floods for himself, mirroring his six bankruptcies and 3,500 lawsuits. It's his nature. The president's...

Letter to the editor: A lesson on the Constitution
Mr. Uppgaard from Pequot Lakes should educate himself on the history of our country and the Constitution. He would learn that first and foremost we are a constitutional republic, not a democracy. He would also learn that our founding fathers provided a means to change things if we...

Letter to the editor: Do the jerk
Baby boomers remember it as a dance craze. Like the shing-a-ling and the boogaloo, it was real-life drama out on the dance floor, if you could dig it. Today, it's back - with a new twist. You've seen their theatrics, heard them, watched them in action, these nouveau social dance artists,...

Letter to the Editor: Writer offers rebuttal to letter
Owning a firearm doesn't mean you support the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment states: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The Supreme Court in 2008 D.C. v. Heller...

Letter to the Editor: Popular vote should overrule Electoral College
The Electoral College on Nov. 18, 2016, elected Donald Trump, despite Hillary Clinton winning the popular vote by nearly 2.9 million votes. The American Bar Association criticized the Electoral College as archaic and ambiguous, and its polling showed 69 percent of lawyers favored...

Letter to the editor: Trump is nuts
Less than 1 percent of the people in the United States are NRA members. This means if you're in a room of 100 people, only one is an NRA member. The 99 percent of us who want to destroy the United States' attitudes of accepting the unacceptable gun violence and whining, act like...
