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: ‘Grateful beyond words’

To the editor:

Words cannot express the deep appreciation we feel for the honor and respect shown our dad, brother, and uncle, Rudy Zehnle, at his recent passing.  It was amazing and heart-warming to see the admiration for his 20+ years of service on the New Brighton Volunteer Fire Department.

Letter: ‘Use the process’

One of the last bills I authored in the Minnesota House of Representatives was one that made it easier for cities to organize trash collection to ensure that waste is disposed of environmentally and to save taxpayers money through economy of scale negotiations.  Thanks to Sens. John Marty and Bev Scalze, a version of that bill was signed into law last session.
