Letter: Re: ‘TCAAP property is free of pollutants...’ Really?

To the Editor:

I know two things for certain: First the suggested additional $10 million in county taxes collected from the TCAAP site will not result in decreased taxes for the citizens of Ramsey County and secondly, there is no way "every inch" of that property is clean.

Letter: Thank you New Brighton City Council

To the Editor:

Do you know that feeling when the moment has passed and it finally occurs to you what you should have said?
Dec. 1, New Brighton held its annual "Truth in Taxation" meeting that gives tax payers the opportunity to weigh in on the city's proposed budget for the coming year. I considered what I might say there since I had followed with interest the council's discussions, but I couldnít quite come up with the right words. So I attended without any plans to get up and speak.

Letter: Supporting Rep. Bernardy for Senate

To the Editor:

As a newly licensed teacher and twenty year resident of New Brighton, I have observed and appreciated that our local legislators are all strong proponents of education. With Sen. Barb Goodwin retiring, I will be supporting Rep. Connie Bernardy to replace her in the Minnesota Senate. Our schools need a strong voice in St. Paul and Connie is that voice. Educational quality in our public schools is why Minnesota comes in at the top of national rankings. Test scores are regularly at or near the top, we have top-ranked universities — both public and private — and the citizens of Minnesota consistently support their schools.

Letter: Yikes, more MNsure hikes?

To the Editor:
The bad news keeps coming for Minnesotans who purchase health insurance through Minnesota’s Obamacare exchange, MNsure. Earlier this month we learned that, for a second straight year, premiums are set to skyrocket. Last week, we found out that Congress will investigate MNsure for possible mismanagement of funds. When will Rep. Barb Yarusso admit that enough is enough?

Letter: Lamenting the new library in Shoreview

To the Editor:
Through the process, I tried to prepare for the destruction that might occur at 96 and Victoria. When it finally happened, it was still shocking. The property completely stripped of trees. Many old oaks unceremoniously cut down. They even took out Shoreview's symbols...the spruce trees surrounding our sign... like a "finger wave" to residents...this is our corner now!

Letter: ‘A costly blunder’

To the Editor:
For many of us, rising medical care costs, lack of a Social Security cost-of-living increase next year and poor retirement fund performance are necessarily suffered because of national economic and political conditions.

Letter: Revisit later school start times

To the Editor:

Mounds View district high schools have among the earliest start times in the metro area at 7:25 a.m. This requires many local teens to awake before 5:30 every weekday to catch their bus. Rigorous research at the University of Minnesota, the National Academy of Sciences, the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics clearly confirm three conclusions: Adolescent's natural body rhythms drive them to fall asleep later in the evening.

Letter: Putting the word out about Weinhagen

To the Editor:
I feel compelled to pick up my pen and not only endorse, but bring to the attention of everyone in our school district the dedication, skill and enthusiasm of Jonathan Weinhagen, who is currently running for the Mounds View Public Schools Board.

Letter: Alzheimer’s awareness

To the Editor:
I want to commend and thank Holly Wenzel for her piece on the Alzheimer's Friendly Business Campaign. This is a topic I resonate with as my mother recently passed away from complications with Alzheimer's.
