The City of Lanesboro is concerned about the odors from the Ethanol Plant! Why donít they do something about their own problems first?

The whole town is filled full of smoke from campfires on most nights. Also, the odor and mess from manure that cattle haulers spill out on the streets and highway is far worse of a problem.

Lanesboro has a dump station for R.V.ís. Why canít the dump station be put in near the Sales Barn for the cattle haulers? And make sure they use it or be arrested for littering.

And the Journal, in my opinion, isn't doing much, if anything, to resolve the situation. I would go as far to say that it is doing more to keep the "fires burning" then to put them out. Remember, the editor of the paper, John Torgrimson, is the same person, who in years past, has written on numerous occasions that the county would be better served if the county governing system was changed from the current county commissioners, who have personal contact with their constituents and understand the needs of the county, to that of a county manager, somewhat similar to a city manager. Maybe Mrs. Ladsten is correct in saying that the editor is just getting back at the commissioners because the paper lost the bid to be the county's legal paper.

I think that more and more that the Fillmore County Journal is trying to imitate the big city papers with their liber .....
