Fischbach wins Seventh District Republican endorsement for the fall

Delegates to Minnesota’s Seventh Congressional District endorsing convention favored former Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach to face U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson in November.
“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the Seventh District Republican Party,” said Fischbach. “We’re excited to unify conservatives in western Minnesota and work hard to send President Trump a Republican Majority in the U.S. House. In Congress, I will be a fresh, new voice for the people of western Minnesota and help President Trump rebuild our economy, secure our borders, and keep America safe.”

Sisters are a big part of plans for GSL golf team

On a girls’ golf team with precious little experience, they are young veterans who planned to help the team try and climb the standings in conference play.

Ashley and Alyssa Radke joined the golf team a year ago. They had never played the game competitively. They relied on natural athleticism to get started and then improved during the course of the season.

Letter – Writer believes we must keep local control of elections

To the editor,
As we deal with the virus from China, efforts are underway by the State of Minnesota to take over local in-person voting from our local precincts with mandatory 100 percent mail-in voting.

To the editor,
On March 30, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln called for a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer for the end of the Civil War, a time of great distress and death for our nation.

To the editor,

I support this decision.

Is this what you want? Our view: A new state of ridiculous

A post on The Chronicle’s Facebook page this past week reached a new level of disbelief. Not to be outdone, Republicans in the Minnesota House are challenging its incredulity.
The person stated, “Our governor is a complete idiot! There is a special place in hell for him.”
Gov. Tim Walz extended the stay-at-home order until May 18. Many had hoped the order would be lifted but the ongoing growth in the number of coronavirus cases without widespread testing statewide left Gov. Walz feeling the best interest of Minnesotans – all Minnesotans – was to extend the order.
