Many reasons to be proud of Wadena As long-time residents of Wadena (34 years), we always took pride in our community, our schools and the residents. In the past year that sense of pride has grown. Last August a Minneapolis Star contributor took a drive up Highway 10, stopping in...

Hinson will continue to fight for truth Now that I am not a congressional candidate I can write a letter to the editor. Yes, while I was a candidate for the US House of Representatives, dozens of papers in our district refused to write about the race or allow my own letters to the...

Confederate flag should be taken down The last weekend in July, we were driving north on Highway 10 to our vacation place. We were horrified to see the confederate flag flying prominently off to the right of the highway between Motley and Staples. To make things worse, we noticed...

Military memorial should be moved to vet's park I don't know the history of the military memorial on the lawn of the Wadena courthouse, but if it's agreeable to those who placed it there, could it be moved to the growing veterans park on highway east? Muriel Juers, Wadena

Students spending too much on textbooks An opinion piece that ran in the Washington Post and Brainerd Dispatch on the high cost of textbooks struck a chord with me. Why? I completely agree that students are spending too much on textbooks. The heavy burden of buying college textbooks...
