    Sandbulte: Post office is struggling Letter to the Editor: As a retired rural carrier with the post office, I think I can respond to some of the complaints against the local service. For the last three years I have come out of retirement to help deliver packages during the holiday season. This past session was by far the worst. It appeared to me, that Amazon was short of help too, so the…

    Murphy: Mail delivery issue To the Editor: We have an apparent issue with mail delivery in Rock County. The USPS is very short-staffed at our Luverne office; however, they do not advertise locally for help. We have numerous businesses that advertise in our Luverne Announcer and Rock County Star Herald assuming their purchased advertising reaches a certain number in circulation. That is not…

    Thone amazed at musical talent in Luverne community Letter to the Editor: I want to express how amazing the musical talent is in this community.

    Thone: 'Paper rules have no relevance...' Letter to the Editor: The paper rules have no relevance for the innocent. The rules of God define the innocent. The rules of man punish the criminals.  God’s Rule:  Do no harm or damage to person, place, or thing, willfully or with extreme negligence.   This government excels at forced choices, forced permissions, financially raping and jailing the…

    Fick: 'Let the doctors decide if this drug is needed' To the Editor: Glad to see the decisions made by the county commissioners and other people of authority in regard to the marijuana situation. Let the doctors decide if this drug is needed and or beneficial to the individual. Robert Fick, Luverne Kracht shares list of 'facts' he has researched My last two letters that I sent in were…

    Thone: 'This government is corrupt to the core...' To the Editor: In God’s court he requires us to love him with all of our heart, mind and soul. To love others and ourselves. In your court you require us that love God to pay you and get your permission to move, protect ourselves, eat, drink, smoke, buy, sell, own and live. I and everyone else don’t need to pay you or anyone else to move in…

    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…

    Keitel: 'Our water has become tainted' Letter to the Editor: I grew up in rural Luverne and understood crops, birds, rivers, streams, beaver, muskrat, snapping turtles, river bottoms and sand pits. I utilized the spring water that flowed out of the earth like a gift from God. My first spring water was from the Blue Mounds where a pipe came out of the side of a hill and filled glass…

    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…

    Dementia awareness event shows that ‘love always remembers'   To the Editor: A.C.E. of SW MN and the Southwest Minnesota Dementia Awareness Network (SWDAN) were grateful to be able to bring our spring dementia event to our community in May at the lovely Presbyterian Church in Luverne.

    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…

    Fick: 'Stop and think, what if that would happen around here. Oh that would hurt' To the Editor: Another shooting! Three innocent children and three adults at work in school. Why? Where will the next incident be? Do we think this 28-year-old has been watching television? Seeing how the adults in Washington, D.C., operate? The example they set for our youth. It this normal? Could that…
