Letter about Houston County


Fri, Apr 18th, 2014
Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

For what it is worth, I want to share my admiration and hope for Houston County. I have been a public health professional for more than 20 years. I have come to understand that one of the key foundations to individual and community health and quality of life is having influence in and contributing to a living environment reflective of one’s values.

In May 2013, I visited Houston County to participate in a film screening and discussion about industrial sand mining and what it meant to the community. Nearly 100 people attended the event. I was impressed by the existing knowledge regarding frac sand mining among those in attendance. However, what struck me most was their devotion to their community. The energy in the room was no one’s personal agenda, what I observed was a community agenda that understood and revered the people and the land that make Houston County the nationally unique treasure that it is.

My hope is that the Houston County Commissioners will use every resource at their disposal to empower themselves and their constituents to maintain a living environment reflective of the community’s values.

Sincerely,

Tracy Sides, PhD

St. Paul, MN

Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, I am abundantly grateful to Dr. Van Gorp for his comprehensive article on “Sustainability”. “Infinite growth on a finite planet, is by definition, not sustainable.” As it is we have a government “of the few, by the few, fo .....

Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, I read Mrs. Nyenhuis’ letter about health care and some red flags were very apparent to me. I found it hypocritical of her to talk about how well her knee is doing and how lucky she is to have her husband after his diabetic trauma .....

Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, As I have tried to study silica sand mine issues in southeastern Minnesota, I have to say I am a bit disappointed in Minnesotans. It appears that our stance is one of “let’s do what we can to prevent silica sand mining in southea .....

Health care and Obama care...

Posted in Wykoff Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, Karen Reisner’s February 17 editorial acknowledged Obama Care is “not yet a work of perfection”. Kind of like saying the Captain of the Titanic made a “small error of judgment” by steaming at top speed through an area kno .....

To the Editor, In Stan Gudmundson’s article, “A View of Liberalism,” he states, “I do not care for liberalism. Not at all.” Well, Mr. Gudmundson, I don’t care for conservatism. Not at all, especially the extreme right wing ideology th .....

To the Editor, Well fellow babies, the “silly season” bears down on us once again. I’m talking (pardon the expression, politics). From now until November we will be treated to millions of dollars worth of messages, most of it negative, from w .....
