To the Editor: Red Wing has a long-standing relationship with the Prairie Island nuclear plant and looks forward to working cooperatively and constructively to resolve common concerns. Since the opening of the plant, we have worked together to develop a thorough Nuclear Emergency Response Plan to ensure local governmental units and agencies are staffed, trained, equipped and prepared.
To the Editor: Every year, a wonderful party is planned and given to the graduating seniors. This party is held right after graduation June 5 at the YMCA from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. the next day. This is a safe and fun way for our seniors to celebrate the end of their high school years with their classmates. From the fabulous decorations, to the delicious food, the many games and big-time prizes, our graduating seniors enjoy a night they will remember and appreciate for a long time.
To the Editor: I feel sorry for Patricia and Roger Sween and others like them. Why? In their May 8 letter, they take a cowardly shot at Mr. Kelly and his belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman -- and his desire to legislate that way. I bet the Sweens consider themselves "open minded" and "accepting of others," yet, when you wish to define marriage, have no "tolerance" for those that oppose their opinion. Homosexuals have the same rights as heterosexuals. They can marry those of the opposite sex ,just like I can.
To the Editor: Friday is a day set aside to encourage people to ride to work. Live Healthy Red Wing encourages Red Wing residents to give it a try. Ride your bike to work on Friday. Why ride? In the time we already spend getting to work, we can get the exercise we need, but "don't have time for." Commuting to work by bike or for neighborhood errands is within easy reach of people of any level of fitness and a great way to get fit and stay healthy.
To the Editor: We feel sorry for Rep. Tim Kelly. In his campaign, he stressed accountability and his willingness to work in a bipartisan manner for the good of Minnesotans. He desires everyone to be the good citizen that he is. Now he thinks everyone should decide on the rights of others in a proposed marriage amendment when rights are so fundamental as to be outside of personal preference. The amendment is not his preference, but it is the position of his Republican Party. The poor guy; he is caught in the middle. Patricia & Roger Sween Red Wing
To the Editor: Regarding establishing full diplomatic relations with all countries of the world now, the purpose of diplomatic relations is allow nation states to communicate about matters that are of mutual interest. Diplomatic relations should not be and are NOT the giving of a seal of approval of one nation upon another. Let the U.S. grow up. Absent naked aggression, economic or military, there is no way to directly influence others' behavior except by communication. The diplomatic mission is there for the purpose of communication. It is time for America to mature.
To the Editor: George Lakoff and Bruce Budner once wrote about taxation for Rockridge Institute. In essence, it said: America's government has two fundamental functions, protection and empowerment.
To the Editor: What happened to Pretty Red Wing? As the proud daughter of a World War II veteran and a sister who is currently active in the Army, I am embarrassed by the condition of the United States and Minnesota flags hanging outside some private businesses in downtown Red Wing. They are worn looking and dirty to the point that some possess grease stains. Calls have been made to the businesses and the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce. A subsequent call was made to the Legion, which issued a letter in regards to the flags' conditions. Yet nothing has been done.
To the Editor: Time will tell if the recent Heritage Preservation Commission decision to approve demolition of the 134-year-old Peter Freeman house on Pine Street was right. Opinions differ as to whether or not the house is historically significant and worthy of rehabilitation.
To the Editor: I thank Robert Tjossen (R-E, April 71) for raising awareness of the Oral Health Practitioner legislation, which is currently pending in Minnesota.
