Letters to the editor
February 23, 2013
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: Residents need to be considered too
To the Editor: On Feb. 13 the Somerset Amphitheater Interim Conditional Use Permit (ICUP) was brought before the Village of Somerset Public Safety Committee. The recommendations of this committee will be acted on at the Somerset Village Board Meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 26. The village...

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: Are county reps representing us?
To the Editor: The voters of St. Croix County have indicated at several elections that they want to keep the Health Center in New Richmond. However, the St.

LETTER: Police chief's training is questioned
To the Editor: Roberts Police Chief Dan Burgess, who was hired in November 2009, began the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command Class on Monday, Feb. 4, 2013 at the Hudson Police Department. He will attend 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for five weeks....

LETTER: Students shouldn't attend murder trial
To the Editor: I felt compelled to comment on the fact of 30 children with their teacher from St. Croix Central High School attend the trial proceedings of Aaron Schaffhausen. I do not believe this is an appropriate way to begin showing children how the criminal justice system works....

LETTER: Cannot believe what I saw
To the Editor: Just a note to say thank you to all the wonderful volunteers in Baldwin who put on The Red Cedar Special Olympics Basketball Tournament. I hope everyone who worked the tournament was able to witness all the great things that happened on this day. First and foremost,...

Retirement account contributions rise
To the Editor: I'm pretty sure some folks will be complaining about the increase in FICA payroll deductions. The Republicans like to call it a payroll tax, but that's not true.

Violence - to be expected
To the Editor: It is a sad day when a mixed-up youth snuffs out the lives of 26 children. When children or anyone are allowed to play and watch extremely violent life video games, movies, TV, novels, etc. there is hell to pay. What goes in, comes out to haunt and harm you. The price...

Republicans suffer from hypocrisy
To the Editor: Republican Party members have been wondering why they lost seats in the Senate and the House and lost the presidency. One of the many reasons is because they have become ridiculous in their political philosophy.

Country needs to go back to square one
To the Editor: The knife that O.J. Simpson used to "allegedly" murder two people was not blamed for that horrendous crime. The culture of violence in America started many years ago. Look at where our society has regressed from our moral standards of just 50 years ago. These days...

Keep germs to yourself
To the Editor: The spread of the flu germ - how real. Example, after eating in a well-known eating place, I was standing in line to pay for my meal behind a grown adult who was blowing their nose and coughing. They got their change and put it in their pocket and then reached for...

Fixing the Social Security shortfall
To the Editor: As a recipient of Social Security and Medicare I am concerned about the recent proposals for fixing the Social Security shortfall, which seem to place the entire burden on the lower and middle income groups. Some of these proposals would raise the retirement age to...
