Letter: Car Run Thanks

To the editor:

On behalf of Antique Car Run, Inc., I want to thank the 70 plus drivers who came from around the country (including one from England this year) to participate in the 29th Annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run.  On Saturday, August 8th, sixty-four antique cars left New London on their annual endurance run to New Brighton.  The 120 plus mile trek ended in New Brighton for 53 of those cars at the Long Lake Regional Park as part of the city’s annual Stockyard Days.

Letter: A deafening DFL silence on Planned Parenthood

To the editor:
Taxpayer subsidized Planned Parenthood’s evident harvesting and commercialization of aborted fetus organs challenges the English language when attempting to describe this depraved modus operandi.
A group of our Republican state legislators has called upon Attorney General Lori Swanson (DFL) for an investigation of Minnesota’s Planned Parenthood operations, to determine whether or not the alleged practice of selling fetal body parts is occurring in our state and if any laws have been broken.

Letter: New Brighton’s wants versus needs

To the editor:
Jones Lake in the southeast corner of New Brighton is a swamp of the larger sort. It is the happy home of birds and butterflies and other wildlife, which prefer to be left alone.  But city manager Dean Lotter has other ideas. He wants to upgrade it for humans. That means a couple of bridges, boardwalks, trails, and a paved parking lot. The Price tag? About a cool million dollars.

Letter: ‘Social pariahs’

To the editor:

Readers opting to fill out the City of Roseville health care survey are urged to write in the comments section  that Mayor Roe and the city council should avail themselves of the ruling by Attorney General Lori Swanson allowing  individual communities to enact laws against secondhand smoke stronger than those on state lawbooks.

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.

Now that the 2015 sessions of the Legislature thankfully are over, I just want to say that I am proud to have John Marty as my state senator and Alice Hausman as my state representative.

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: ‘I am excited’

To the editor:

The bridge over County Rd E and Snelling is being torn down, which is causing a great deal of trouble getting to and from Mounds View High School.
