Letter: Bladder cancer awareness
Every type of cancer deserves all the recognition and compassion it can get, including all those on the Cancer Awareness page recently in the Enterprise (Oct. 14, 2015). Yet the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. was not on that page, and 16,000 people are expected to...

Letter: Guns are a sympton of the problem
These routine events of killings are not because of guns, and more control will not stop them. The number of hired security guards is not the significant factor either. Each person can be the solution by paying attention to each person around them. Building relationships with people...

Letter: Enbridge's actions speak louder than words
Enbridge’s public relations team is pretty slick with their message of how good the Sandpiper and Line 3 pipelines will be for Minnesota’s headwaters lake country region. Let’s see if their actions match their words. On the environment: They’ve endlessly hyped their new safety...

Letter: Taxpayers financing Planned Parenthood a contradiction
When a pregnant woman is killed the person responsible is charged with a double homicide. When a Minnesota dentist, a big game hunter killed an aging lion in another country a segment of our society wanted him charged and punished as a killer. It’s reported that 55 million babies...

Letter: Starting school after Labor Day is common sense
Allow me to use this means to publicly congratulate the area school districts that had the good sense to wait until after Labor Day to start the school year. At the same time, let me offer condolences to the students of other schools who suffered through four days of oppressive heat...

Letter: Rental property concerns dismissed
Rental properties concerns dismissed There seems to be a great deal of confusion in Hubbard County about who is accountable when it comes to rental properties. I have on several occasions turned to the Enterprise, the city, even the state. It has become very clear that for reasons...

Letter: Enterprise article done in poor taste
I was deeply angered when I read the article about Brenda Lee Olson in the Enterprise, published Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015. I was dumbfounded that the majority of the story dredged up history from 2009 and 2010, thoughtlessly and further humiliating another human being. I’m not saying...
