LETTERS: Boston tragedy hits home for dad
To the Editor: I know we're supposed to move on. We're supposed to rally together and stand united. But I can't. I can't get past the thought of that poor 8-year-old boy who never knew what hit him or his sister who will be physically and emotionally scarred the rest of her life....

LETTER: Politically correct words run amok
To the Editor: Recently one of the big dailies out East decided to change their word usage bible. All papers and magazines have them. They are called different things at different papers but essentially they are phrases and words that can be used by writers to make up a story. In...

LETTER: Adjustments should be shared by all
To the Editor: I was appalled to read that the president's budget proposes to use the chained CPI instead of the consumer Price Index to calculate the cost-of-living adjustments for Social Security. We are told that the chained CPI is a more accurate way for measuring inflation because,...

LETTER: Bill of Rights should not be amended
To the Editor: I was a paperboy who delivered the news of JFK's assassination. If memory serves me, I delivered the newspaper the day Democrat Gov. George Wallace, later a contender for the Democrat nomination for president, stood in the doorway in Selma, Ala. to block the entrance...

LETTER: Driftless area needed for trout fishing
To the Editor: Over the past 20 years the Wisconsin Driftless Area in western Wisconsin has evolved into one of the best trout fishing areas in America. This occurred as a result of changing land use, which improved water quality, habitat projects and wild trout stocking. The trout...

LETTER: County government working as it should
To the Editor: St. Croix County is lucky to have a government which works the way a democracy is supposed to work. The structure of the democracy is simple. We elect county board supervisors in each of 19 districts. Those county board supervisors then elect the board chairman who...

LETTER: Banking regulations make little sense
To the Editor: Recently a scare was sent through everyone's life who owns a bank account. In Cyprus last week the government was going to vote on a one time regulation that would let the government illegally take 10 percent of everyone's cash to pay down the bank's debt, or the...

LETTER: Shine headlights during storms
To the Editor: I don't think Wisconsin has a law about headlights being on when it's raining or snowing, but wouldn't it be a good idea? During our recent snowfall I noticed many cars with their lights off. I know it might be an infringement on someone's rights, like wearing a...

LETTER: St. Croix land sale was a steal
To the Editor: I read in this paper, the buyer of most of the county farm didn't expect to get it, thinking it would go for more. Investors paid a low $5,000 to $7,600 farm acreage price for land zoned commercial industrial already in the city. Both indicators, this property sold...
