Letter - Wake up, people - drugs caused shooting
To the editor: Don't retreat, reload. Crosshairs, guns and how many bullets a gun holds have nothing to do with Tucson's massacre. Don't be so stupid. It has all to do with a five-letter word - drugs. We have crime going on all over, even right here in our community, like we have...

Paid Political Letter - A good candidate for commissioner
District 4 constituents: With the primary fast approaching, I thought this letter might be the best opportunity to reach out to as many of you as possible. As many of you know, I have lived and worked most of my life in Douglas County - as a social worker, grounds keeper, sales clerk...

Letter - Elect our own officials
To the editor: A big thanks to Jim Korkowski. Jim, you are so right about money buying elected officials. In 1960, John Kennedy was bought. Hillary bought her senate seat in New York (the most money spent in history for a senate seat). Hollywood bought and paid for Senator Al Franken's...

Letter - Minnesotans are fortunate
To the editor: In the December 30 Echo Press, a Republican blamed Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Al Franken and President Obama for not ending the war in Iraq. The attack is unjustified. Both senators are supporting the president in his effort to shift form the ill-conceived war...

Letter - Why is the war still going on?
To the editor: Some can now have the last laugh. A few weeks ago on 60 Minutes, they told about Saddam's WMDs. They were right under our nose. It was water. He dug the world's largest channel to drain rich marshlands that thousands of people were making a good living on. Then, when...

Letter - Pay the price for doing wrong
To the editor: Mr. Dalman, awhile back you told the bright side of the late Ted Kennedy. First of all, the Kennedys were spouse cheaters. Ted was out cheating on his wife, got drunk, drove his mistress off a bridge, left her to drown, while he went to sleep off his drunk. Leaving...

Letter - Democrats love to raise taxes
To the editor: I now know why the Democrats were so mad at Bush for the tax cuts to the rich Republicans. They want the Republicans to pay the taxes as they don't pay theirs. Wonder how many more Democrats will be pulled out from under the rug that will have some kind of fraud against...
