Letter about support for Jon Pieper...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

In the last years, my home valuation has gone down, but my property taxes to the city and county have gone up. Why? Because Local Government Aid (LGA) to cities was taken away by Republicans. This program used income taxes from all Minnesotans and distributed it to cities based on population. This was fairer, especially to those of us who live or have a business in small towns, and don’t have much industry to support town infrastructure.

Jon Pieper has worked hard in the restaurant business and understands these tax difficulties. He knows the value of education and the importance of not borrowing from schools. He knows about farming. Please join me in supporting Jon Pieper for Minnesota House 28B. We can do better for Fillmore County.

Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, Yvonne Nyenhuis’ defense of the pro-choice position consistently misses the mark (“Concerning women’s healthcare,” Aug 25). She argues that facilities like Planned Parenthood provide essential healthcare to women, but that .....

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 .....

Not in my back yard...

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 .....

Letter about Spring Valley flooding

Fri, May 24th, 2013
Posted in Spring Valley Letter to the Editor

To the Editor, Spring Valley was flooded again this week. Has the City ever considered a dike? A dike does not have to be a big, ugly earthen wall. Have you seen the nice row of locally quarried retaining wall rock stacked up at O’Connell’ .....
