On Aug. 5, 2017 two opinion letters criticized Steve Green for letting the Enterprise readers know that the Minnesota Department of Education was issuing a "Toolkit to Ensure Safe and Supportive Schools for Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students." While criticizing Rep. Green several confusing statements were made. Mr. Gebhard, first claims that Green wrongly stated that the Toolkit makes new policy but then says that when Green says the Toolkit is completely unnecessary it is a false conclusion. Why would the Toolkit be necessary if it does not make new policy?
One April 8, 2017 Opinion Page writer Terry Kalill says that Rep. Steve Green's idea of eliminating Election Day voter registration is not supported by the facts. And a second writer John LaFond implies that Representative Steve Green is misleading us with the statistics he presents.
In his North Star Newsletter, March 2017, Sen.

I want to say thank you to our new State Representative Matt Grossell for taking his real world experiences as a deputy and bringing forward legislation to protect other first responders and medical personnel.
Ever since the earth and sun were made the earth has rotated around the sun every 365-1/4 days with the axis of the earth tilted at a small angle that gives us different angles of sunlight throughout the year. Since time began this rotation has caused water to evaporate and condense. When it condenses where the temperature is below 32 degrees it forms snow or ice, sometimes with the result of iceberg formation.
In a June letter to the editor Mr. Lee Purrier, a self-proclaimed progressive, chose to ascribe the characteristic of racist to conservatives without explaining how conservatives are racist. In July,...
Lee Purrier challenged letter writers from the far conservative right wing of the Republican Party to provide an easy-to-follow path to Conservative approaches for critical issues. He pointed out that if you wanted to know what a Progressive Democrat believes you could watch Robert Reich’s "Ideas to Save the Economy" video series with subjects such as Health Care, Education, Immigration, Climate Change, Medicare, Social Security...etc.
