McLeod County Fair fun

New teachers join GSL schools

Different in politics, similar in grace

Former President Jimmy Carter, now 90, announced this past week that he has been diagnosed with cancer. Starting out as skin cancer (melanoma), the cancer metastasized to his liver, and now to his brain.

On voting … and not voting

The campaigning for next year’s elections is starting to draw more attention, and with it comes a focus on voters and their mood. Which is all well and good, but it leaves out of the equation one large bloc of citizens: people who are eligible to vote, but don’t.
Over the years, a fair number of people I’ve encountered have confessed that they do not vote — and I often surprise them by pressing them on why they don’t. They give a multitude of reasons.

County should focus on fixing roads

To the Editor:
Why is it that McLeod County can build a new DOT Building, tar roads to county parks, help pay for taring Luce Line Trail, buy new cars and pick-ups and equipment every year but they have the worst roads in Minnesota, and do nothing about it.

EPA clean power plan will cost families

To the Editor:
Recently, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the final rule for what’s known as the “Clean Power Plan.”
