Thanks to emergency personnel, volunteers
Our home was never threatened. In fact, we never even got a whiff of the smoke at our house! But before moving in next to the Menahga City Cemetery in ‘96, we spent five exciting years suppressing wild land and structural fires with the USFS and a local volunteer dept. Now, 20...

Letter: Freedom through bills and laws
Are we all willing to make changes in government? Bills proposed by you for a change. Your own thoughts of a change you want to see. Any subject will be fine – your own personal care and concern about the way you want a bill. We have heard people say there should be a law against...

Thanks to Vance Carlson for the great feature on Jim Weinzierl and sons. I have known Jim since 1986 through my roles as AD, coach and basketball fan. He is the consummate professional, official and gentleman – always. In the 40-plus years in and around the game, I have never met...

Letter: Urge opposition to House energy bill
Our main concern in writing this letter is to respectfully call your attention to Minnesota House File 956, the Omnibus Energy Bill. This bill would require utilities to purchase 4 percent of their electricity from solar energy and to set a goal of up to 10 percent of its total energy...

Letter: Vaccinated student also got chicken pox

Letter: In God’s eyes, all deserve chance to live
When I see some of the opinions and letters to the editor I get downhearted. Some people attempt maybe to use the sandwich technique: compliment/criticize/compliment, yet they only have one slice of bread. They are an open-faced sandwich or no sandwich at all. Last week there...

Letter: Both sides are at fault
I am apalled at the Forum editorial not because it takes both the President and Congress to task over the sequester but what it implies. The President did in fact go golfing with Tiger Woods over the President's Day weekend but it was in Florida and not in Hawaii as the Forum editorial...
