Mike Goggin and Barb Haley have entered the rapid ramp-up to Jan. 3, when they join the Minnesota Legislature. While they have been preparing for this day since announcing their candidacies — Goggin for state Senate last summer and Haley for House in February — they switched from would-be lawmakers to senator-elect and representative-elect with Tuesday's election results.

I am, admittedly, and old white guy. I am not angry at anyone. I believe immigrants are, and always have been, our country's greatest strength. They should be welcomed and nourished, not feared. I think women should be respected as equal partners, not objectified. They should not have old white guys like me making their decisions for them. You and I should be able to practice our religions, or lack thereof, as we choose but not dictate to each other what to believe. Diversity is to be celebrated. We all prosper the most when more of us, including worldwide, prosper.

That by itself puts you in the minority of our citizenship — a dedicated few who have earned the great esteem of being called a veteran.

To say that the last several months have been stressful is an understatement. Get your good karma fired up and see the play "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" put on by Ellsworth High School drama. Mr. Dulak, Ms. Fuchs and Mr. Kleppe, along with the talented students, are to be commended on such a great event. This is truly a must-see. Eileen Welsch Hager City
