Letter to the editor: Support Green New Deal resolution
I am the grandmother of seven grandchildren. I am extremely afraid of the kind of world they will live in if we do not stop climate change. United Nations climate scientists tell us we have just 12 years to move our country off fossil fuels to avoid catastrophic climate disaster....

Letter to the editor: 'I know nothing'
Do you remember Sgt. Schultz from "Hogan's Heroes?" His favorite line when questioned by the prisoners at Stalag 13 was, "I know nothing." It seems many of the Democrats and the media think the same way. They want you to know nothing, hear nothing, see nothing or say nothing. If you...

Letter to the Editor: Paying someone else's taxes
Economics rules our modern, "civilized" lives. We've allowed this system to become so complex, it's not understandable. This allows abuses to slide through like crazy. Ask economists a question, you'll get opposite answers, sometimes from the same economist. They'll give an answer,...

Letter to the editor: Investing in the future
Few public buildings demonstrate community pride like schools. On April 10, voters approved a $145.7 million bond referendum to significantly improve the quality of educational facilities throughout the Brainerd Public School District over the next four years. With enrollment expected...

An economic legacy in progress. A brand-new, relocated oil pipeline, rerouted right through our central lakes area. More than 8,600 new jobs. Millions in tax dollars. Meeting Minnesota's future energy needs. Really good for our community. Local businesses catering meals-to-go for...

Letter to the editor: Letter writer disagrees with columnist
Reading Don Bye's column, one could surmise he believes we should have a one party rule at the state and federal levels - something most Dems opposed when it wasn't in their favor. So the hypocrisy lives on. He laments the outside money spent in the Eighth Congressional District against...

Letter to the Editor: Letter writer responds to Abler column
On the Nov. 15 opinion page, Pete Abler's "As I See It" column tried to discredit the right of a woman to choose whether to have an abortion. In my opinion, he asked the wrong question. He focused on the question of viability rather than tackle the more difficult question: "Do the...

Letter to the editor: Thankful for neighbor
Yesterday was a beautiful day. A piece of my mail that had mistakenly been delivered to a home about three miles away was hand-delivered to my home by the "accidental recipient." She felt very badly that she had opened the package before she checked the name. While I was so appreciative...

Letter to the editor: This is a new dawn
Dark days in America. A society torn. Lingering military conflict. A nation divided by sharp-edged politics and by withering, clashing, moral grievances, and marred by atrocities. A woman wearing angelic-white emerges in front of a large crowd, takes the stage holding a microphone,...
