LETTER: Public needs to speak out about SCI
To the Editor: I am shocked and appalled at how low our public officials will stoop. As the owner of an Adult Family Home, I was frustrated when my funds were again cut to the point where I may have to close my doors. This has been a continual tactic of Northern Bridges, the fund-managing...

LETTER: County should stand true to mission
To the Editor: Is our county board so obsessed with money it has turned its back on our elderly and disabled? On June 4, the St. Croix County Board will vote on stopping funding for St. Croix Industries, a business which has served people with disabilities for almost 40 years. They...

LETTER: Nursing home losses continue
To the Editor: What can I say? Intentional or otherwise, the article written by Jeff Holmquist for the New Richmond News is such an example of journalistic deception for the voting public. See the "Nursing home finances turning around" article. Slow down and read that article carefully....

LETTER: Benghazi: Where's the press?
To the Editor: Forty years ago I took a journalism class in college during the height of the Watergate scandal. Naturally, the scandal dominated class time. Daily we observed and analyzed the story developments and were amazed by the press's dogged determination to bring the truth...

LETTER: Information needed on SCI transfer plan
To the Editor: Re: May 6, 2013 story, "Board votes to transfer disabled program" My, that was quick and seemingly easy, one vote and it appears St. Croix Industries is history. Yes, I know it has to be voted on by the county board. In reality can St. Croix Industries be replaced...
May 17, 2013 - 11:37am
LETTER: Investigations best left to professionals
To the Editor: Well, it appears that spring is finally here and more than the grass has been uncovered, or has it? The May 5, 2013, New Richmond News headline story caused the cows to give sour milk, the chickens to stop laying eggs and pigs to start losing weight.

LETTER: Then and now, mother and me...
