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: Deafening silence, II

To the Editor:
We're reaching a crisis in American public policy. The third highest member of the government is resigning. Why? Because he's been under relentless pressure to satisfy demands of far right religious activists, who want American government policy based on their own narrow religious views.

Letter: Will of voters vs. city government

To the Editor:
The current New Brighton City Council has increasingly allowed unelected city staff to drive the direction of city government rather than championing the will of the voters. This puts at risk much of the progress the city has made over the past few years in cleaning up the fiscal mess created by previous city governments. The majority of the council is now advocating a return to yearly property tax and spending increases in addition to policies that drive further increases in the cost of government and create conflict between neighbors.

Letter: Thanks, Judge

To the editor:
While I'm not in the habit of writing to newspapers or responding to published articles I could not in good conscience not convey to you what an excellent article you published in your Sept. 9 paper. The article by Judge Steve Halsey, titled "Who do I sue?" was clear, to the point and unbiased.
