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...

Agree with Finnegan regarding refugees I thoroughly stand with John Finnegan's letter in a past paper. Both sides have to wake up and think about what is happening now and what will happen down the road. They have caused people to want them out of office come election time as they...

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...

Apology to Republicans I never thought I'd see the day but I owe all Republicans an apology. I've thought for years baby Bush was the worst president of all time. He got us in a mess that will take 50 years to work out of. But now that the Donald is the nomination on the Republican...

Post Office needs temporary drop box Some of the streets in Wadena are now closed for construction. The one closed that concerns me the most is the one in front of the post office, thus denying access to the alley that allows the driver to drop mail in the drop box without exiting...

Would you vote for Jesus? The question was asked if Jesus were running for election, would you vote for him? That is a good question. Artists paint Jesus with long hair, a beard, long flowing robes and sandals quite appropriate for the time and area where Jesus was born. Yes, he had...

Why does Wadena County have three County Attorneys? It was reported on March 2 that 25 percent of children in Wadena County have parents who don't work. The state average is 3.4 percent. Only Mahnomen County was higher. Could this be the reason Wadena County has three full time County...
