Letter: Against rodeos

I dread seeing the ads in the area papers announcing the “World’s Toughest Rodeo” in St. Paul in late January.  These “tough cowboys” will be jumping on the backs of unwilling horses, bulls, steers; all this cruel activity for money prizes. The used animals win no prizes and deserve their freedom.I dread seeing the ads in the area papers announcing the “World’s Toughest Rodeo” in St. Paul in late January.  These “tough cowboys” will be jumping on the backs of unwilling horses, bulls, steers; all this cruel activity for money prizes.

Letter: Opposes addition of franchise fees in Arden Hills

In 2011, Arden Hills Councilmembers David Grant, Brenda Holden, and Fran Holmes wanted higher sales taxes to pay for Zygy Wilf’s Vikings stadium.
Now, they want utility taxes. There isn’t a tax they don’t like. Only Ed Werner is opposed. Taxes on essential services are addictive and can be increased at will.

Letter: Safe and Supportive MN Schools Act, HF-826

To the Editor:

The Minnesota Senate will soon take up something called the Safe and Supportive MN Schools Act, HF-826. The deception starts with the title. It is supposed to be new anti-bullying legislation, but instead bullies parents, students and teachers to accept a radical social agenda.

Letter: Thanks for generosity

To the editor:

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Helping someone in need is a driving force behind why a firefighter goes into this profession. Whether it is in a career role or a part-time one, the common thread is to help others. During the holiday season, that drive to help others is magnified in many ways with a lot of opportunities to help those around us.

Letter: giving credit

The Yarusso thruway and the Scalze overpass are now open for traffic. I refer, of course, to Highway 10 between 35W and 694.
While I use a little levity, I am serious about giving credit to our State Rep Barb Yarusso and State Senator Bev Scalze and their DFL colleagues as well Governor Dayton for getting this and other projects done.

Letter: 'The Millenial Generation'

The Millenial Generation is of the most educated generations in American history. It should be that the Millenials are of the most successful.
However, my generation is the first generation to be worse off than its parents since the Greatest Generation. There are countless reasons for this: the economic collapses, the lack of interpersonal communication skills, or the outsourcing of manufacturing jobs. However, I will discuss the Catch 22 my generation faces.

I have been heavily involved in politics for over 40 years. I have volunteered on numerous campaigns over those years and I know a well rounded candidate when I see one. Graeme Allen is one of those candidates and would be a great city council member!
