Sometimes you need to treat yourself

For the past couple of years or so, I’ve developed quite the Sunday evening ritual — I throw on my pink terry robe, pull my messy hair into a ponytail, scrub my face with soapy water and apply a green, avocado-oatmeal flavored clay mask before melting into my love seat with cold cucumber slices over my eyes and my feet submerged in a tub of hot water and epsom salt.

GSL making wonderful progress, improvements

To the Editor:
It’s hard to believe that we are already coming to the end of the fall season at GSL. The school year has certainly gone quickly as I am sure the rest of the school year will do as well. We are in the middle of this exciting time during our year with the many activities wrapping up seasons and participating in section and state competition. Once again, it has been another successful season at GSL. Best of luck to all our teams!

Disappointed in Adamietz’ letter

To the Editor:
I was disappointed in Lori’s (Adamietz) letter last week. She slung mud at me. I will not throw any back. She also raised several points which deserve to be discussed thoroughly, but at the present time I will only explain briefly.

Glencoe mayor refutes letter’s assertions

To the Editor:
I have been asked by the City Council to respond to Gary Ballard’s letter to the editor on Oct. 15.
Ballard had five points to which I will respond.
1. There is no tax information being withheld in regard to the Armstrong Avenue and Lincoln Park Project.
Debt service will come from five sources, property taxes, special assessments, water and sanitary sewer utility revenues, and municipal state aid.

Can Mr. Gruenhagen’s words be trusted?

To the Editor:
One cannot trust Glenn Gruenhagen’s statements. He told me 31,000 scientists stated that climate change is not true. He called climate change a lie and a fraud and that I should look it up on the Internet.
I did, and guess what — the article states that 31,000 that signed a petition saying no to climate change are graduates in engineering, medical, agriculture and other fields; this is a mere .3 percent of 10.6 million graduating since the 1970s.

John Lipke will bring bipartisan leadership

To the Editor:
Glenn Gruenhagen is running for state representative in District 18B.

Peterson is good for agricultural industry

To the Editor:
We are writing in strong support of Congressman Collin Peterson. We are sick and tired of all the negative, misleading attacks.
These outside groups are misleading voters into thinking that Collin has changed, or that he travels too much. In fact, Collin represents a district that would take over seven hours to drive from one end to the other. It’s bigger than 12 states and the District of Columbia. Collin works hard to show up and listen to constituents in all corners of his district. How could you do that with a car?

Clarification on veterans’ memorial site

To the Editor:
I felt it was necessary to write this letter to respond to the article in last week’s paper regarding the County Board. It stated there was a proposal to place a veterans memorial on the courthouse property in Glencoe.

Negative ads against Westrom are false

To the Editor:
Like most of you, I am sick of the negative political ads. I am particularly irritated by the deceptive ads against my friend, Torrey Westrom.

City Council delays Armstrong Avenue project until 2016

In a major change of plans, the Glencoe City Council on Monday night opted to split the proposed 2015 street maintenance project into two parts spread over two years. The city will reconstruct the streets and underground utilities in the Lincoln Park area next year, but will delay the reconstruction of the Armstrong Avenue area until 2016.
