To the Editor:   A recent proposal to set a minimum Class I price mover was shot down in record time.  Had it been successful, the rock bottom commodity prices that are killing everyone would not take such an enormous toll on Class I prices.  Every dairy farmer who is regulated in any Federal Order...
To the Editor:   I'm writing to express my appreciation to Debra Bellman for the well researched information in her 4/15/20 Letter to the Editor.  Several people, in or from this community, including me, send in letters based on our opinions but this is the stuff we should use to determine a course...
To the Editor:    On April 15th former Long Prairie Legion baseball coach and teacher in the 1970's, Jim Pettersen, passed away.  Coach Pettersen, who served as an assistant coach and later as head coach at North Dakota State University was an avid supporter of baseball until his untimely death...

I agree that several changes need to be made to ensure the privacy of citizens, but this is not just a problem created by the Democrats.  ...
To the Editor:   The announcer of the Long Prairie Grey Eagle  (LPGE) boys’ basketball home games is to be commended. At last Friday’s home game vs the Osakis Silverstreaks, Carl Morril arranged for all seniors from both teams to be recognized for playing their last regular season high school game...
