In response to John Torgrimson's column on March 19, 2001, I was the Lanesboro Art Council Board member that suggested " 'apathy for the organization was so great' that perhaps it would be best to give the St.Mane Theater to another non-profit arts organization."

I was hoping the statement would get the communities' attention, compel them to get re-involved on the council, and bring the Art Council back to the excitement and commitment of the early days. And it happened.

The new board and membership are doing a wonderful job. I commend them for putting the train back on the track. We're rolling again. Thank you all!

I was saddened to read Dave McHan’s letter in this morning’s issue (March 19, 2001) of the Journal. The issues he raises, why people view other people as different, why we feel the need to develop an “us versus them” mentality, the basis for treating people with less than kindness, are basic issues which have plagued humanity from the beginning of time.

I am sure there are compelling reasons for the behaviors of Mr. McHan’s neighbors. We in rural Minnesota face declining enrollments, declining economics, and a shrinking population base. We’re scared about change and are not sure how to plan for it. There are challenges ahead for all of us.

But surely turning on each other with venom will be the least likely plan for success. Science is in the midst of mapping out the human gene but one of the most startling things they have discovered is that we’re all more than 99% the same! If every human is SO similar, does .....
