To the Editor: The Minnesota Angel Tax credit was signed into law April 1, 2010.
To the Editor: Generations from now, historians will look back on the hopefully brief Obama administration as America's "Lost Years" when our great nation stumbled domestically and floundered globally. Beginning with the Ivy League academic/socialist colleagues that advised and directed President Barack Obama, through the wasteful trillion dollar stimulus, the inept globalist foreign policy that emboldened our foes like the Muslim Brotherhood and confused our allies like Israel, Great Britain and the new democracies who live under the threatening shadow of neo-Soviet Russia.
To the Editor: While I can agree, in part, with what Mr. Kaehler had to say about the countywide moratorium on sand mining and the Mining Study Committee, I cannot agree with his conclusions (R-E, March 28). What I do agree with is his statement about the ostrich. To that end, the county is doing its part in not sticking its head in the sand. As one of the nine committee members and an admitted mining advocate (it was my profession for 40-some years) I point out that the committee's mission is not to ban mining in Goodhue County.
To the Editor: Where is the Sunnyside trail -- or where should it be? Think how handy it would be to have a safe path for children going and coming from Sunnyside Elementary and Twin Bluff Middle schools. I've been biking around that area often and got to thinking about where Grace Street changes to another street. What if a trail started by that fire hydrant? I went back there and it looks like it would make a unique and awesome trail. Some of the streets and sidewalks there and on West Avenue are steep. They can really dangerous for children.
To the Editor: Cathy Gronevelt's most recent letter has no basis in reality (R-E, March 28).
To the Editor: During the past month anyone with a television across the country or in Red Wing is now familiar with the tragic killing of a 17-year-old black teenager in Florida. A grand jury or federal justice department investigation will ultimately decide whether the shooting was defensible or intentional murder and whether it was a "hate" crime. This is the latest incident relating to a "stand your ground/deadly force" law enacted in Florida and a dozen other states around the country.
To the Editor: Enough with failed policies. Let's use common sense. The GOP continues to adhere to the theory of supply-side economics, which is to give money to society's top echelons - people and groups who have no urgent material needs. For 30 years, we have heard that reducing taxes on the rich will: 1. Result in direct investment of wealth in supply to produce goods and services. 2. Stimulate so much new economic activity that even the lower tax rate will bring in enough revenue to pay for the tax cut. 3.
To the Editor: "Drive to Arrive Alive" is a motto I have strived to instill into the minds of teenage drivers during my 30-plus years of drivers education. Also DDD=D (Dumb driving decisions equals death) is a companion thought.
To the Editor: Last month, Environment Minnesota and the Minnesota Public interest Research Group released a new report on the threat of nuclear power plants to drinking water in Minnesota and nationwide. The report showed that, here in Minnesota, the danger of nuclear power is too close to home. The Prairie Island and Monticello nuclear power plants in Minnesota threaten the drinking water of over 935,000 people who live within 50 miles of these plants. The risk of experiencing dangerous, radioactive leaks is only increasing as Minnesota's power plants become older.
To the Editor: With the upcoming Monday March 26 City Council meeting to consider the making of an improvement of the following streets: Hallquist Avenue (Pioneer Road to 230 feet westerly of Chickadee Court) Eunice Avenue (entire street) Frenn Avenue (Hallquist Avenue to 210 feet southeasterly) Pine Ridge Boulevard (Hallquist Avenue to 180 feet northerly) Chickadee Court (Hallquist Avenue to 200 feet southerly) We thought it might be of interest to other homeowners of the remaining sidewalk projects that are in the city of Red Wing 2012-16 Capital Plan: Withers H
