Letter: Our children are being short changed

To the Editor:
I am encouraging everyone to vote ‘yes’ for the two school levy questions in the November election. District 622 has extremely important issues on the ballot. We are in desperate need of passing our levy. Yes, desperate. In the past 10 years we have watched our school board cut millions of dollars from the budget. Each of those years the education staff has continued to educate our students. I believe we have stretched our budget so tight that it will snap if we do not adequately fund our community schools by passing this levy.

Letter: Support student learning

To the Editor,
My husband and I recently bought a  home in Oakdale. When sharing with family members about the location of our home, we heard the question, you know what school district you will be in right? It was disturbing to discover that our school district, District 622, has the lowest per-pupil operating budget compared to the top 20 largest districts in the Twin Cities metro area.

Letter: Rep. Lohmer encourages students to apply for high school page program

To the Editor,
With the beginning of the 2016 legislative session only months away, I strongly encourage any high school junior with an interest in the political process to consider becoming a page in the Minnesota House of Representatives High School Page Program.

Letter: Lake Elmo, Please Stop!

To the Editor:
Many have watched the lack of respect and civility here in Lake Elmo, directed at the three councilwomen. Anger and picket signs are everywhere! People disrupt council meetings. Problems are solved with tractor brigades and blind obedience to mob-mentality. We have become a little town of cowards and unkind people, stuck somewhere in the past. Many of us went to Stillwater schools together, as did our parents, children, and grandchildren. Yet websites and Facebook mock our councilwomen. Would you like to see cartoons and comments of your wife or mother? Please stop!

Letter: Is it time for a 4th Street BRT?

To the Editor:
Building a $485 million Gateway Corridor transit way is in the works in order to provide 15-minute all-day bus service from St Paul to Lake Elmo/Woodbury. I applaud the effort to increase transit but $485 MILLION is four times the cost of adding a regular route bus.  Would residents and businesses along 4th Street N. in Oakdale like an explanation from their elected officials about the proposed so-called: bus rapid transit (BRT) along 4th St from 694 to Inwood Ave?

Letter: Sunday Alcohol Sales

To the Editor:
The issue of Sunday alcohol sales is at the Capitol again this year. As the owner of a small retail liquor store in Oakdale, The Four Firkins, I’m very much in support of repealing this antiquated restriction.

Letter: Protect healthy trees

When a natural disaster occurs and beautiful mature trees are lost due to disease, storms and straight line winds it makes newspaper headlines.

Letter: Supporting Reinke

As the former Oakdale Parks and Recreation Commission Chair I had the opportunity to work with city council member Paul Reinke. His extensive business and leadership experience are clearly reflected in his work in support and advocacy for the city.
