Letter: Farewell to Hubbard County community

Letter: State should repeal business taxes

An old cottonwood tree was recently cut near the former city beach on the Fish Hook River in Park Rapids (Enterprise, Aug. 14, 2013). Its size made it a rare sight. Not many people will likely see one with a larger trunk, unless they visit the Pacific Northwest or California. The...
