    Hudson: People need to ask questions Letter to the Editor: I went to the valuation meeting May 14 which was open from 4:00 to 4:30 for the public which I feel is a way to keep the people from attending as most people cannot get off work at this time and the mayor and council know this, so what are they hiding? There were only a half dozen of us there and they all said they have been fixing up…

    Schoneman: Celebrate spirit of community this Fourth of July    Letter to the Editor: As the postmaster of Luverne, Minnesota, I am writing to express the unwavering commitment of our postal staff to serving our wonderful community.

    Bremer: Artificial Intelligence is real Letter to the Editor: I am known by many to be a technology geek of the highest order. Artificial Intelligence is forging its way into our existence in so many ways. I, for one, detest that fact that AI takes over the jobs of real people (like our local DJs at the once local radio stations). In order to get any type of real assistance on the Internet,…

    Smith: Thank you mail carrier Noel Benjamin To the Editor: We hear a lot about our mail delivery and some of the delays in service, but I would like to present a favorable instance that could have been very serious if not for the action of our mailman, Noel Benjamin. On Tuesday, April 9, I was taking the garbage to the container in the garage to be picked up the following day. I had to move…

    Harnack: 'Am I here all alone?' Am I here all alone?!   From the moment I could listen, My parents said to me, “Always treat people with respect, The way you want to be.”   They also told me not to boast, Don’t brag, don’t bully, or lie, ’cause you will have to answer to these, The moment that you die.   I learned the “Sermon on the Mount,” Memorized the “Beatitudes.” But, it seems…

Every resident of Minnesota’s 1,777 townships has the unique opportunity to participate in Township Day on Tuesday, March 12, 2024.

    A way to fight inflation Letter to the Editor: Rejoice in fake news (and what we can do to fix it). To everyone who thinks our boy Trump is a true Christian, I got news for you. The “insurrection” of 1/6/2021 was nothing but a “show” for whose syllable antecedent isn’t worthy of human waste. Re-elect “Damien” and we destroy all that America stands for. MAGA rioters are declaring war against…

    Fick: 'We're overlooking serious national problems' Letter to the Editor: The big question in Washington now seems to be at what age is an individual disqualified from running for public office. Mental and physical status could be determined by medical doctor exams if an individual is qualified to start running for public office. Age brings experience and can bring knowledge and…

    Frakes: 'Two-letter word' To the Editor: We’ve been seeing and hearing a lot about abortion these days. They talk about the fact that a woman should have the right to control her own body, but the real fact is that abortion is a reward to a woman who couldn’t control her body. I know that it hasn’t been that long ago that we thought storks brought the babies, but modern science has…

    Harrison on this year's legislative session: 'Is this what you voted for?' To the Editor: If you haven’t heard about what has happened in our Minnesota Legislature this year, it is important that you know. We are now a sanctuary for abortions that can occur up to the moment of birth, a “privilege” allowed only in six other nations (China and North Korea included). If a baby is born…

    Altena: '...you and I are called to expose the deeds of darkness' To the Editor: If you drove past my house and saw me trying to mow my lawn with my snowblower, at best you would assume I was not fulfilling the intended purpose for my snowblower, right? And yet I believe that scenario represents the mindset of Gov. Walz and every Democratic representative and senator in Minnesota.   I’m…

    Schomacker: Thanks, Greg, for all your work Letter to the Editor: I have been wanting to write this letter for some time and then another week is gone and I am reading the new Star Herald. So, this is the week. It has been a great addition to the paper with all the cool pictures, many in color, of the sports of Rock County along with great stories. There is proof of when one door closes, another…

    Olson: Water on earth is about 4.5 billion years old Letter to the Editor: Re: article in current Star Herald about Rock County Water System receiving a grant to determine nitrates and also the age of water in Rock County. If you google “How old is drinking water,” you find that all water on earth is about 4.5 billion years old. It was formed during the formation of the solar system and just…

    Protecting the elderly: Minnesota’s battle against the landline shutdown          'People with mental health feel isolated' Letter to the Editor: In Minnesota, I recently discovered that telecom companies were granted FCCapproval last August to deregulate the shutdown of copper wire landline phoneservice. Instead, they are allowed to substitute it with internet-based phone service. This…

    H-BC Teacher: 'I encourage your to vote April 11' To the Editor: I often feel like I’ve hit the jackpot in my job teaching kindergarten at Hills-Beaver Creek Elementary School!  We were named a U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon School in 2019.  We’ve got a great staff, working together like clockwork to educate our students.  We’ve got an acclaimed administrator who leads us to…
