Sustainability...


By Yvonne Nyenhuis

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, for the few”. We need to restore government “to the people.” “The alternative to capitalism is not socialism, it is democracy.” Dr. Van Gorp clarifies the challenges we face politically and in science, goals we should aspire to and a strategy for proceeding toward these goals. When President Obama campaigned he talked about “hope, change and he used the word “transformation”. Republicans feel threatened by that word, they like things as they are. Their narrative includes the growing deficit (which was largely caused by the preceding administration) and “big government” (which generally means disposing of all the programs that help people while maintaining tax breaks for the wealthy). They take pride in their success in obstructing the Presidents efforts to create jobs,improve education, protect the environment and to expand accessibility to healthcare.

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...

Fri, Feb 28th, 2014
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 .....

Posted in Chatfield Letter to the Editor

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 .....

Posted in Peterson Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, My husband and I were about to fill out Mr. Davids’ “Questionaire” but we realized that it was so slanted and partisan that we could not really answer questions that were not asked. This “questionnaire” is an insult to vote .....

To the Editor, I wish to express my deep admiration for the Catholic Workers who went on trial for protesting frac sand mining in Winona. Their testimony in the courtroom and the way they live their lives are true inspirations. The owners of the pr .....
