Save trees in SE Wadena Why do seven people get to decide such a big issue as requiring the whole town to put in sidewalks, which are totally unwanted and unaffordable? Grass looks much better and doesn't deteriorate. Who wants sidewalks under their windows? If you don't...

When is a fetus a child? How can abortionists claim a fetus is not a little child until they propose to sell their parts? Then they speak of their heart, liver, lungs, arms and legs and how much the parts are worth. I believe my God is the "author of life" who breathed life...

America on a downward path America seems to be on a downward path. The insane left seems to have won. Economically; the country is going bankrupt and spending money it doesn't have at lightning speed. Morally, our country has allowed Hollywood to continue to push their rot and...

Will there be anyone left to speak? There is a clarion call for those who will not say "go" but will say "Here, let me go" or "I will go"! No more words are needed, only action. It is time to rise up and take our place as "history makers." For too long we have been silent and allowed...
