Sieling will bring integrity to position From an early age, my father's lessons were instilled in me and continue to guide me as I live and raise my own family. We camped - almost every weekend in the summers - and every Sunday as we packed up, my father would remind us all to...

City of Wadena not displaying common sense about kennel ordinance Regarding the Animal Shelter's plight, I keep hearing the phrase "common sense" but don't see or hear much of that surfacing here, certainly not on the part of the City of Wadena and the complainants! I suspect the...

Dumping kittens is reprehensible On or about Aug. 20, a car dumped seven-week-old kittens off in a ditch in Wadena County. I cannot figure out what would possess a person to dump kittens out into a ditch, or anywhere. Did this person really think seven-week-old kittens, or puppies,...
