Letter: East Side pride

To the editor:

I have been a home-owner in the Westminster/Case neighborhood since 2000. I also operate a licensed family childcare, so I have a few reasons to be activity in the community.

Letter: RUSH Line options

To the editor:
Thirty-seven years ago I left Washington, D.C. to take a job here with MnDOT to helping increase ridesharing. At the time there were 1.2 people per car on the road. Unfortunately, I believe that statistic is still the same.
A few years later, a settled homeowner, I testified at a neighborhood hearing about future uses of the former Burlington Northern train track right-of-way, now the Bruce Vento Bike Trail, which is right behind my home. As a good planner I took the long view, supporting its consideration as a future light rail route.

Letter: Improving the health of our community

To the editor:
I want to thank State Representative Sheldon Johnson, Senate Disctrict 67B and State Senator Foung Hawj, Senate District 67, for taking time out of their busy schedules to discuss the need to support measures that will increase active living and physical activity among Minnesota's youth, thereby helping to combat childhood obesity.

Letter: Kudos to East Side Review

To the editor:
I would like to provide some belated kudos to the staff of the East Side Review.  I have recently enjoyed reading the news, the humor (especially Ben Bromley’s column), the follow-ups (the Phalen Freeze Fest, the Phalen Boulevard-area sinkhole), and the human-interest stories.

Letter: Rush Line - Will it Be a Green Line or SWLRT?

It was somewhat refreshing to see so many route options at the Rush Line Open House, but at the same time I realized that many of those would quickly be rated a “fail” and that we would be back down to a few main routes.

Letter: Save St. Paul’s hidden gem

Recent ESR articles about a proposed Rush Line light-rail system extending from White Bear Lake to St. Paul’s Union Depot raised questions about where the ‘transit corridor’ should go. It seems that Swede Hollow Park, a deep ravine dubbed “St. Paul’s hidden gem,” is the Rush Line Corridor Task Force’s main focus.

Letter: Wishes lawyers would stick to what they know

As Judge Halsey misquoted, "'life is not a tale told by an idiot.'" But his column in "Viewpoints" definitely is one.

Letter: Curfew violations

On August 31, 2014 there was an article about curfew violation. I agree with how late kids should be out at night especially when everybody is going back to school.
