Letter to the Editor: Response to Abler's 'hundred million miracles'
A few comments on Pete Abler's "A hundred million miracles" in the May 17 issue: Yes, things do happen that we thought were long shots, such as a person surviving a terminal illness. But just because man can't explain it, doesn't make it a miracle. And all the Biblical references...

Letter to the Editor: A burning question
Why is it that I and so many others are supposed to be understanding and sensitive to the feelings of those who want to tear down Confederate flags and to remove monuments to Confederate war heroes, while at the same time we are asked to accept the actions of those who sit, kneel...

Letter to the editor: Leave the memorial be
Anyone who read the Aug. 11 Echo Journal may have noticed the Pequot Lakes City Council voted to proceed with the Trailside Park master proposal, which includes possibly moving the "All Veterans Memorial" to give it more prominence (the state of quality) and make it more accessible....
