LETTER: Labeling people is poor policy
To the Editor: I disagree with Ingrid Kizen's letter to the editor of Feb. 21, "Gun control needed across nation." Labeling people as mentally ill, and creating a national list of those labeled, is an abuse of human rights and dignity. Allowing a group of professionals (or is it...

LETTER: County offices should remain in NR
To the Editor: With the recent auction of county land in New Richmond, there have been veiled references in the local papers to razing the St. Croix County Health and Human Services buildings in New Richmond and moving this department to Hudson. Why the secrecy? Why the hurry? Has...

LETTER: Labels help our local schools

LETTER: Gun control needed across nation
To the Editor: Outlawing assault-type weapons may not be sufficient to achieve gun control. Most of the recent mass shootings were committed by persons who were mentally ill. We must find a way to prevent such mentally unstable persons from having access to guns. Current commitment...

LETTER: Disrespectful letter upsets reader
To the Editor: In response to Jim Schroeder's letter on Feb. 14. I guess I don't know if I am more upset that Jim referred to the president of the United States Barack Obama as "Emperor Oh-Bah-Mah" four times in his letter or the fact that Editor Jeff Holmquist allowed it to be...

LETTER: We have the right to defend ourselves
To the Editor: Emperor Oh-Bah-Mah was in town this week. He made it clear that he was willing to sacrifice as many children and unarmed citizens as necessary to achieve his agenda of disarming America. Never mind the propaganda photo on the cover of U.S.A. Today of him purportedly...

LETTER: Primary candidates deserve support
To the Editor: The time has come for the residents of the New Richmond School District to be heard. Now, most of the members of the school board are not of such a year in life, as my dad used to say, that they can't hear what's coming. The primary Feb. 19, 2013, should be like...

LETTER: Students shouldn't attend murder trial
