Letters to the Editor

Deep reflection is required

To the editor: This election season has managed to bring into play some of the worst of our political actions. Having “your” side win is nice. However, what price did our election process pay to obtain the victory? We consider ourselves to be a politically safe model for the world. We are ...

Guest Commentary: Local spending is more important than ever

While the end of 2020 is nearing, the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to affect the local business community for months, and perhaps even years, to come. Beyond the many changes implemented to keep employees safe and their companies operating, business owners have also had to respond to a ...

A sorry mess, indeed

To the editor: In response to “A sorry mess” by Lynn Hagedorn, in the Nov. 20 newspaper, I submit the following: I am sorry, but NOT for the reasons the writer droned on about in a very long letter of disrespect to the office of the President of the United States, and to people who have ...

An apology? Not from this voter

To the editor: On Nov. 25, there were two letters to the editor. The first was by Steven Comstock, who is spot on and easy to agree with. The second letter, by Lynn Hagedorn, not so much. First off, the second letter writer states the Republicans owe her an apology. Does she know any more ...

To the editor: I am writing this letter to thank you for recently publishing a lengthy, but heavily biased, political tirade by Lynn Hagedorn entitled, “A sorry mess.” This country is still a Constitutional Republic with free speech, and nowhere was that more evident than in your paper ...

The color of hypocrisy is blue

To the editor: In response to the recent letter written by Paul Kiefner, “You can...” The conclusion “You can’t beat Blue” is wrong where the writer does not follow his own research or see the problem before his nose. The letter blames a lot of stuff on the Proud Boys or ...

A sorry mess

To the editor: Donald Trump supporters, you owe me and our country and the world a huge, sincere apology. In 2016 you voted for Donald Trump because you said that you wanted to see change in our government. You did that even knowing that he has lied and cheated his whole way through his ...
