Letters to the Editor

-A +A
To the Editor:   As I write another letter to the editor about violence, I shudder, and ask “when will it ever end, when will people treat others with respect, and when will we all learn to live together without violence?”  As parents, we attempt to shelter our children from it, but it seems that...
To the Editor:   A few weeks ago, I read an article in the Leader in regards to sidewalks that aren't being shoveled out in the winter. If I recall correctly, it was the city officials that were warning people that if they don't keep their sidewalks clear of snow, the city would send a crew to...
To the Editor:   Believe it or not, our current weather is cause by hot air. As you can guess, our weather is much like the North Pole because it came from the North Pole.  It is called the Polar Vortex. The Polar Vortex is normally a very tight area of extremely cold air rotating around the North...
To the Editor:   Now that Polar Vortex Jayden has moved on and we are headed for a brief warm up, we need our customer’s help.  Postal carriers have suffered serious injuries related to slips, trips and falls due to icy and snow covered walkways and porch steps. Preventing a slip or bad fall can be...
To the Editor:   Not sure why the major networks even gave Trump air time the other night, or why anyone even watched. He didn’t say anything true, constructive, or decent. You can not solve problems if you act in bad faith, and do not understand the facts. Facts: We do need a strong, enforceable...
To the Editor:   Real politics is a game of give and take.  That is something not in the cards at this moment in the “Border Wall” standoff. Right now the Democrats think they have the upper hand as the media is 100% with them.  Trump has been willing to give in on the DACA issue.  He has even...
To the Editor:   Christmas JOY was brought to Long Prairie this past Saturday afternoon when the Area Community Choir, directed by  Emily Steinert, presented a cantata “Come and Worship”. What a beautiful and blessed experience it was! In the early 2,000’s LaRayne Hall and Blanche Tirk initiated...
To the Editor:   I take umbrage at letter writer George Link’s reference to our “outdated”election system..... namely the Electoral College. We live in the United States of America. Each state is accorded representation within the Federal government, part of which is proportionalto the individual...
To the Editor:   It seemed appropriate to share the words of Jeff Foxworthy at this time, before we go out and vote. “Lets see if I’ve got this!!! If you cross the North Korean Border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.  If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely. ...
To the Editor:   I feel I must respond to Mr. Towle’s remarks in the 10/17/18 edition of the Leader.  The first inaccurate statement was that the “American electorate” failed to elect Ms. Clinton, President. She was in fact elected by nearly 3 million more people than Donald Trump in the popular...
