Letter: Well wishes to 'Officer Mario'

Your excellent story concerning the conclusion of the 30-year career of Mario Reyes with the Mendota Heights Police Department caused our family to recall Officer Mario’s important contribution to the lives of young students in our area, including some of our own. Mario Reyes brought the D.A.R.E. program to local schools, instructing young people in the dangers of drug use and promoting drug avoidance.

Letter: Supporting Mike Obermueller for Congress

As a resident in Inver Grove Heights, I’m excited about the candidacy of Mike Obermueller for Congress in the Second Congressional District. For some years, there has been a vacuum of interest in early childhood and lower-income education in our representation in Washington, DC. The incumbent, John Kline, has been indifferent about funding early education programs to benefit the public, including lower-income families.

Letter: Return to Community program

Programs that help seniors return to their homes after a nursing home stay needs to be a priority.  A stay in a nursing home can cost up to $11,000 per month. Research has shown that seniors that remain in a nursing home after 180 days are likely to remain there because their supports in the community start to disappear.
