Thanks for the wonderful story of the Frankford Grange.

  • Thanks for the wonderful story of the Frankford Grange.

     
  • On a recent Monday night in Brooklyn, five empty chairs stood on stage — one for each member of the Federal Communications Commission. A crowd had amassed in the room for a public hearing to send this message to the agency: Dont hurt the open Internet.

     
  • Your column about the Wykoff cannon brought back memories. 

     
  • This is an update on the efforts of the Kingsland Facilities Task Force to reach consensus on the present needs and future configuration of the Kingsland District. Please note this is not to be considered the official record of proceedings; rather it is a factual record of the discussions and findings to date from the notes and recollections of a task force member.

     
  • The soldiers who fought the Revolutionary War were our first veterans, the only cohort of U.S. warriors who took up arms to create rather than defend a country.

     
  • The members of American Legion Auxiliary Everett H. Hale Unit #68 would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.

     
  • I have had a number of people ask me if they could write in my name for mayor of Wykoff. I do not want that to happen. I do not want my name written in. Instead, I encourage you  to vote for Jeremy Comstock.  
  • I attended the public forum at the Spring Valley VFW Tuesday, Sept. 30. It was a good place to hear the candidates. A lot of questions were asked that had been written down in advance but not all of them.

     
  • Soon we will go to the polls to select a new sheriff for Fillmore County. Sheriff Jensen is retiring at the end of this year after decades of great service to the citizens of our county. His decision to retire has left an open void to future leadership within the sheriff’s department. This concerns me because of the importance the office of county sheriff and the ongoing partnership the county commissioners have had with the sheriff’s department.

     
  • I would like to share our state Representative Greg Davids’ record of times he proposed and voted for property tax relief in our district.

     
  • Minnesota is a leader in percentage of voters, but sometimes we elect (or re-elect) a career politician when a statesman (or stateswoman) is running against him.   
  • I want to thank everyone involved in the Kingsland High School Wall of Fame induction ceremony.  It was such a pleasure to return to Spring Valley for the Homecoming celebration and the induction.   
  • Every fall, my cousin and I watch football games in his “man cave” that's equipped with sports memorabilia, Xbox, a fully stocked bar and the crown jewel, an HD 70-inch television. As a lifelong southerner who loves college football, this is nirvana. 
  • Members of Congress are home now, campaigning for the upcoming elections. Their messages are all over the map, and for a good reason: they have very little to brag about.   The Congress that just recessed until after the elections makes the 80th — the one that Harry Truman blasted as “do-nothing” — look like a paragon of productivity. This year’s members did manage to avoid a shutdown, but that’s about all. Congressional leaders spent the better part of the year avoiding tough votes.

     
  • Buy local. Its a well known strategy for small towns. Keeping your grocery money close to home keeps the grocery store close to home.
