Letter: Watch the waterways

To the editor:
Recently, news surfaced that the drinking water in New Brighton contained the chemical dioxane. Stricter regulations and protections of the streams and waterways that filter into the community would ensure that chemicals like this stay out of the water to reduce the negative health risks. Clean water is everyone’s issue. Minnesota should be the land of 10,000 beautiful lakes not the land of 10,000 pollution dumpsites.

Letter: ‘Just wrong’

To the editor:
Last week in a public hearing council member Gina Bauman called my family, my beliefs and politics "just wrong". More than once.  Bauman publicly dismissed her neighbor's animals and pets as "impossible".  More than once.  She has stated "I have always not wanted chickens in New Brighton".  More than once.

Letter: ‘Chickens are nicer’

To the editor:

The anonymously authored New Brighton anti-chicken flyer (the author was too 'chicken' to sign his/her name), filled with half-truths and innuendos, might be 'correct' from Council member Bauman's perspective, but it is misleading.  Could Council  member Bauman have been complicit in authorship of the flyer?   She seemed very supportive of its anonymous author/authors and stated "I have always not wanted chickens in New Brighton".

Letter: ‘Regarding the chicken fiasco’

To the editor:
Regarding the Chicken Fiasco, I don't have chickens, I don't know anyone who does. However, I'm very disappointed in the course of events this week.
Very near my home, I know of 3 residents who have chickens.  I only know this because someone identified them, not because I hear them, see them or smell them.  
My point is: What harm is there in these residents keeping a few chickens if I don't even know of their existence?
It's often said that the government which governs best, governs the least.  I subscribe to that sentiment.  I also believe that we can't pass laws/ordinances against every annoyance.

Letter: ‘Grateful beyond words’

To the editor:

Words cannot express the deep appreciation we feel for the honor and respect shown our dad, brother, and uncle, Rudy Zehnle, at his recent passing.  It was amazing and heart-warming to see the admiration for his 20+ years of service on the New Brighton Volunteer Fire Department.

Do you know where your trash goes?
We all know that our recycling goes to Eureka Recycling where it is sorted into various kinds of materials and made ready for further processing for reuse.

Almost everyone pays into Social Security during their working lives. These are taxes taken from wages so we can redeem it upon retirement.

This week Representative Mike Frieberg responded to the devastating measles outbreak in California, which has now spread to Minnesota, by introducing a bill that requires parents to consult with a medical professional before they can opt out of vaccinating their child.
