Letter: Preserve our natural resources
The recent outcome of the Minnesota Legislature resisting inclusion of private ditches for buffer zone practices is counterintuitive to the Republican party’s "conservative" position on "less government." While private farm ditches were not in the original proposal’s "language,"...

Letter: Call me a skeptic on global warming
According to President Obama global warming is the biggest threat to not just Americans but to the planet. Bigger than terrorism, the economy, open borders or any of the many concerns we all share. Polls show he stands apart from the American people on that premise. That is why rather...

Letter: School board should have lifted order
On Dec. 10 following a Menahga School Board committee meeting I was accused by chairman Ernest Huhta and treasurer Curtis Hasbargen of possessing a weapon. On Dec. 14 as I was going to attend the next school board meeting I was served a no trespass order by Interim Superintendent...

Letter: Don’t tear down Park Rapids water tower
Why tear down our water tower? It’s a great landmark and could be put to use in many ways, such as showing paintings or wood carvings just to name a couple. Remember, this is Park Rapids, not Minneapolis-St. Paul. Let’s keep our small town aura. Alene M. Bjerklie, Park Rapids...

Letter: Is this a vendetta against an activist?
I and others attended the ISD 821 School Board meeting in Menahga on Jan. 21. Concerned with the negative image of an activist that was being singled out for retribution and denial of his civil rights, I spoke requesting that the board use common sense and resolve the pseudo “No...

Letter: As Muslim blessed to live in safe community
To say one is a Muslim, is only a religious identity. To believe in Islam and follow the faith is to be Muslim. No different than saying someone is Jewish (Judaism), to say one is Lutheran (Christian) and so on. There are people who say they are Muslims and do hateful things, use...

Letter: President’s priorities miss the mark
The following is a response to a recent letter in this paper. Polls indicate that the current greatest concern of Americans is safety from attack by radicals and Islamic terrorists. We are being inundated by foreign people coming across our southern border illegally and now our President...

Letter: Truth in Taxation lacks truth
At the Dec. 21 Menahga school “truth in taxation meeting” the public presentation made by interim superintendent Allen Stoeckman showed that the proposed tax levy would only be going up by 3.25 percent. In this day and age not too many people would be concerned with that however...

Letter: Menahga School Board should rescind order
According to the recent news coverage in the Park Rapids Enterprise it would seem that confusion reigns in the Menahga School Board room. Setting aside for a moment the befuddlement of grown adults over who is a danger to the school children of the area and who is not, the school...

Letter: Stop the gun violence
This letter is short and to the point. Our government must do something about gun violence in our country. Every 16 minutes someone in the USA dies as the result of gun violence. Mass shootings are becoming common place events in our country. We must take on the NRA and create common...

Letter: Political thoughts for the season
The political season is in full swing and this one is giving the media all the meat they can chew on even as it gives the rest of us indigestion. The endless succession of candidate opinions and follow on polls provides daily fuel for radio, TV, and social media pundits to stoke the...
