    To the Editor: We want to let everyone know how proud we are of our beautiful and clean city. Hats off to the city of Luverne, Chamber of Commerce, business owners and to all others who do their part to make this possible. We hear many compliments from visitors to our city. Yes, we “Love Luverne” and are proud and blessed to be residents here. Connie Wieneke The Pool and Coffee Pals Luverne P.S.…

    To the Editor: Luverne has made many positive changes in the past few years as we envision our future. I’d like to share my own thoughts on the subject, specifically regarding food and agriculture.  I grew up on a Rock County farm and have lived here all but about three years of my life. I’m delighted that our farmers and gardeners are producing more fruits, vegetables, and other local products,…

    To the Editor: Once again we have to increase the debt ceiling. What is that? That’s when you spend more than you take in. Families go without — government just borrows more — they sell bonds. We borrow from Japan and China and must pay interest yearly. The rest we borrow from ourselves. Case in point. The Social Security Administration, which has accumulated a surplus since it was first set up…

    To the Editor: We all here at the Tri-State Addition received our letters from the city of Luverne in regard to the storm water drainage study. Well, we all know how that’s going to turn out. I have received countless thanks sticking up for my neighborhood and the citizens of Luverne who enjoy the Roundwind Road neighborhood in which the city of Luverne has plans to destroy. I think it is time…

    To the Editor: As the Third District V.F.W. Commander and Luverne Post 2757 Quartermaster, I would like to thank our V.F.W. baseball team and coaches for a great season. I was really impressed by your quality of ball playing. Keep up your great work, and I will be at Marshall in 2018 to cheer you on. Our team is championship quality. Buck Underwood Luverne

    To the Editor: It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the white supremacists. It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the neo-Nazis. It should not be hard to condemn the actions of the Ku Klux Klan. It should not be hard to call the murder of Heather Heyer an act of domestic terrorism. Staying silent when so-called patriots take to the streets with a violent agenda — spewing…

    To the Editor: A good premise and instruction for any government and people in general is to take care of those less fortunate than themselves. Now our government is turning the tables and with the Affordable Care Act, our government is creating a new problem and portion of the population that no longer can afford the imposed upon regulations. The Affordable Care Act is due to implode on itself…

    To the Editor: In 1995 I traveled from a small town in New Zealand to Luverne as an American Field Scholar.  I was greeted with warmth and hospitality by my host family, my classmates and numerous Luverne residents.  Throughout the year the Piepgras family became my other family, offering me security and unconditional love.  My classmates gave me acceptance, inclusion and friendship. I had a…

    To the Editor: In this most unusual of political seasons, it continues to be a wonder to me that so many people who purport to be good Christians will, in fact, actually hate one or the other of our presidential candidates. Is there room for “hate” in politics, or otherwise, in the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Emphatically, there is not. Strong feelings? Yes, of course! But not hate. There is, I…

    To the Editor: Have you heard about this Kaepernick dude? Professional football player who won’t stand for the National Anthem because of what he perceives as racial injustice? Hello! This guy plays in the NFL. Let’s talk real disparity. Racial disparity: How many white faces do you see in the huddle? Gender disparity: How many women do you see in the huddle? Physical disparity: How many 5’10”…

    To the Editor: I enjoy looking through phrases, slogans and titles to see the other side of their meaning. A few weeks ago while I was visiting friends and relatives in Oklahoma City, I was able to indulge my enjoyment. I saw a lawn service truck with the company name, “No More Weeds.” If it was true, they would be unemployed. First National Bank — How do I know they were first? The Penn Square…

    To the Editor: We would like to thank the Luverne Chamber of Commerce, the Tri-State Band Festival committee, and the city of Luverne for their hospitality this past weekend. The bands were great, and the weather cooperated until the final four field bands. Thanks to committee members and the Luverne School District, those bands were able to perform inside the elementary gym. We enjoyed two great…

    To the Editor: On behalf of the businesses and citizens of Luverne, we would like to thank the city of Luverne (council, administration and public works) for carrying through with the Luverne Gateway Project prioritized in the community revitalization plan adopted by citizens in 2010. Over six years ago on a snowy winter night, almost 200 community members met at the Blue Mound Banquet Center…

    To the Editor: The Tri-State Band Festival Committee would like to salute the Luverne community for the overwhelming support and participation in the 66h Annual Tri-State Band Festival. This event would not happen without the involvement, commitment and energy of businesses, organizations and individuals in the tri-state region. We would like to specifically acknowledge the tremendous…

    To the Editor: Politically correct. Seems like we hear that a lot, but when have our politicians actually been correct? Social security? Korea? Vietnam? Medicare? War on poverty? Energy policy? Taxes?? Spending?? National debt??? Middle East???? I thought it hit a new low when college students were criticized for handing out sombreros at a margarita party, but I may have been wrong. The…
  • September 19, 2016
    To the Editor: The American Red Cross blood drive is coming to Luverne and is excited to introduce Rapid Pass, a new tool that allows blood donors to help save lives in less time. Rapid Pass enables the donors to complete their pre-reading and donation questions online from the comfort and privacy of their home or office. This reduces the time they spend at the blood drives by as much as 15…
