Letter: Lake Elmo, Please Stop!

To the Editor:
Many have watched the lack of respect and civility here in Lake Elmo, directed at the three councilwomen. Anger and picket signs are everywhere! People disrupt council meetings. Problems are solved with tractor brigades and blind obedience to mob-mentality. We have become a little town of cowards and unkind people, stuck somewhere in the past. Many of us went to Stillwater schools together, as did our parents, children, and grandchildren. Yet websites and Facebook mock our councilwomen. Would you like to see cartoons and comments of your wife or mother? Please stop!

Letter: Is it time for a 4th Street BRT?

To the Editor:
Building a $485 million Gateway Corridor transit way is in the works in order to provide 15-minute all-day bus service from St Paul to Lake Elmo/Woodbury. I applaud the effort to increase transit but $485 MILLION is four times the cost of adding a regular route bus.  Would residents and businesses along 4th Street N. in Oakdale like an explanation from their elected officials about the proposed so-called: bus rapid transit (BRT) along 4th St from 694 to Inwood Ave?

Letter: Sunday Alcohol Sales

To the Editor:
The issue of Sunday alcohol sales is at the Capitol again this year. As the owner of a small retail liquor store in Oakdale, The Four Firkins, I’m very much in support of repealing this antiquated restriction.

Letter: Protect healthy trees

When a natural disaster occurs and beautiful mature trees are lost due to disease, storms and straight line winds it makes newspaper headlines.

Letter: Supporting Reinke

As the former Oakdale Parks and Recreation Commission Chair I had the opportunity to work with city council member Paul Reinke. His extensive business and leadership experience are clearly reflected in his work in support and advocacy for the city.

Letter: Voting Reinke for Mayor

We have lived in Oakdale over 50 years and during that time have seen many faces on our council and in the mayor’s chair. None have impressed us as as much as Paul Reinke has during his time on the council.

Letter: Voting Whitethorn

Justice Whitethorn is a neighbor of mine and I have had several conversations with him. I have learned that he is a man of integrity and wisdom. He is concerned about the growth and overreach of government.
