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: ‘Thank you both’

To the editor:
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: ‘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: ‘Selfish personal reasons’

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: ‘Publicly participate’

To the editor:
I was amazed to read in the Roseville Review that the mayor and two city council members voted without public input not to discuss organized trash collection until more citizens learn about it and support it.  Where is the leadership in that?

Letter: ‘Orwellian propaganda’

To the editor:
I have noticed a clever bit of Orwellian propaganda has been executed by the hijacking of the word “organized” in letters campaigning for single hauler garbage collection. Organized is much more benign sounding than “government controlled garbage collection”.

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.

Letter: ‘Involve the community’

To the editor:

This summer, Falcon Heights is planning road construction on Garden Avenue, a main route in NE Falcon Heights. This is the only road to Falcon Heights Elementary (FHE) School, which kids use to walk to/from school and to get to the playground.
Garden does NOT have sidewalks.  Pedestrians must share the road with the only delimitation being a painted line.

Letter: ‘Wholehearted’ support

To the editor:

We write in support of naming Dr. Loeck as the next superintendent of ISD623. As parents of students in the district for the past 13 school years, we have seen many changes and Dr. Thein has weathered the storms with remarkable success. However, as he retires, the needs of the district must take into consideration the students of the future.
