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.

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.

Letter: ‘Absent of lawyers’

To the editor:
Today our 13th Amendment to the Constitution is that which abolished slavery.  However, the fact is that this amendment was originally ratified as our 14th Amendment. The original 13th Amendment was that which banned lawyers from government.

Letter: Car Run Thanks

To the editor:

On behalf of Antique Car Run, Inc., I want to thank the 70 plus drivers who came from around the country (including one from England this year) to participate in the 29th Annual New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run.  On Saturday, August 8th, sixty-four antique cars left New London on their annual endurance run to New Brighton.  The 120 plus mile trek ended in New Brighton for 53 of those cars at the Long Lake Regional Park as part of the city’s annual Stockyard Days.

Letter: A deafening DFL silence on Planned Parenthood

To the editor:
Taxpayer subsidized Planned Parenthood’s evident harvesting and commercialization of aborted fetus organs challenges the English language when attempting to describe this depraved modus operandi.
A group of our Republican state legislators has called upon Attorney General Lori Swanson (DFL) for an investigation of Minnesota’s Planned Parenthood operations, to determine whether or not the alleged practice of selling fetal body parts is occurring in our state and if any laws have been broken.

Letter: New Brighton’s wants versus needs

To the editor:
Jones Lake in the southeast corner of New Brighton is a swamp of the larger sort. It is the happy home of birds and butterflies and other wildlife, which prefer to be left alone.  But city manager Dean Lotter has other ideas. He wants to upgrade it for humans. That means a couple of bridges, boardwalks, trails, and a paved parking lot. The Price tag? About a cool million dollars.

Letter: Watch the waterways

To the editor:
Recently, news surfaced that the drinking water in New Brighton contained the chemical dioxane. Stricter regulations and protections of the streams and waterways that filter into the community would ensure that chemicals like this stay out of the water to reduce the negative health risks. Clean water is everyone’s issue. Minnesota should be the land of 10,000 beautiful lakes not the land of 10,000 pollution dumpsites.
