Letter: Reject gun range; stick with city’s vision
To the Editor: Whenever people ask me where I live and I tell them Red Wing, I hear comments like, “It’s so pretty there,” “Oh, that’s such a great little river town,” or “Isn’t that where they make the boots?” And I answer, “Yes, it’s a wonderful town and a...

Letter: Gun range plan takes noise, safety, more into consideration
To the Editor: With the proposed indoor gun range being a hot topic we thought we would address a couple issues. There has been a great deal of concern for the safety of our school-age children and for the employees of surrounding business. The range design is all indoors and completely...

Letter: Choose a leader who is wise, not mouthy

Letter: Let’s encourage business venture
To the Editor: We would like to commend Jason Sebion and Bill McKinley in their foresight to the city’s need for an enclosed shooting range. The outdoor shooting range located in a housing development within walking distance of Sunnyside and Twin Bluff Middle schools leave much...

Letter: Gun range would attract visitors
To the Editor: I was disappointed to hear Jason Sebion was resigning from the Red Wing City Council (RE, Feb. 10). He seemed to care about the people that put him in office. Some of the council members appear to have forgotten that they work for you. Many times we have witnessed...

Letter: Sebion’s plan raises eyebrows, questions
To the Editor: Bravo to the Red Wing Port Authority for thinking twice before pulling the trigger on Jason Sebion’s proposal to buy and develop city-owned land for a firearm range and training center, for there are many objectionable elements to his proposal. According to Sebion,...

Letter: Gun range would not fit gateway’s spirit
To the Editor: Would the Red Wing community benefit in any significant fashion by the presence of Jason Sebion’s proposed firearm and gun range at its historic Highway 61 gateway? I think not. Its presence would violate the city’s Comprehensive Plan for the site under discussion,...

Letter: Pope is right; Christ calls us to respect all people
To the Editor: It should come as no surprise that during his visit to Cuba Pope Francis took a definitive stand on the issue of welcoming people who flee from poverty and violence seeking safety and security. We are to build bridges, not walls. Those of us who claim affiliation with...
