To the Editor, The ethanol industry has great potential to improve agricultural communities in Minnesota, boosting the economy and helping our hardworking farmers provide for their families. Over the past five years, farm income has fallen by 46 percent. One thing that all Americans can do to help is use a biofuel that we make and sell right here at home. E15, a 15 percent ethanol blend, is made from farm crops like corn.
I am writing to thank Wadena residents for sharing the true meaning of Christmas with children in need this past holiday season. Because of the generosity of donors in Wadena and across the United States, Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan's Purse, collected more than 8.8 million shoeboxes in 2018. Combined with those collected from partnering countries in 2018, the ministry is now sending more than 10.6 million shoebox gifts to children suffering from poverty, natural disasters, war, disease and famine.
What is Governor Cuomo of New York gaining by signing a death warrant for children? This atrocious "law" states that a baby can be aborted up until birth! People celebrated with cheers, champagne flowing and the Empire State Building lit up in pink! Let us not cave in to despair nor become despondent but stand up for and along with those fighting the good fights for the sanctity of life—for God's precious innocents. What New York GOvernor Cuomo is gaining is Satan's admiration and respect and hell will be gaining this governor's sign for eternity.
Dear Editor: Now that Polar Vortex Jayden has moved on and we are headed for a brief warm up, we need our customers' help. Postal carriers have suffered serious injuries related to slips, trips and falls due to icy and snow covered walkways and porch steps. Preventing a slip or bad fall can be as easy as putting down salt or sand on slippery surfaces or clearing the way to mailboxes.
In the 20th century, China, Russia and Germany killed over 125,000,000 of their own citizens! All three were socialist governments and all three disarmed their citizens first. Now considering the liberal goals of socialism and disarmament of the United States of America, remember this: "Those who do not learn from history are bound to repeat it!" We cannot let America become a socialist government, not unless you want to lose your freedoms. Elaine Byman Wadena
These are Paul Harvey's words following the 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. "How can we blame it all on guns? If only the parents had kept their children away from the guns, we wouldn't have had such a tragedy. Yeah it must have been the guns. It couldn't have been because half our children are being raised in broken homes. It couldn't have been because we place our children in day care centers where they learn their socialization skills among their peers under the law of the jungle.
I am writing this as a Foster Grandparent at the Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary school. I've been participating in this program for the past 10 years. I call it my "life line" because of the support, friends, and it gives me something enjoyable to do. I especially enjoy working with children that need extra support or a listening ear and sometimes a hug. It gives me something to look forward to each day and a wonderful reason to get up in the mornings. It's fun to see a child's face when they understand or learn a new skill.
Thank you to the volunteers who so generously shared their time and talent for the 2018 Empty Stocking Talent Program. The 92nd annual program was a success due to your support. We are very fortunate to have so many talented individuals in our community. Diane Peters Talent coordinator
We sure are democrats! Number one, a gay person was elected and serving in the House. Number two, Michelle Obama puts out book, she never knew women have miscarriages and she's not alone! Number three, Omar serving in the Senate trying to work with Israel. Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh's accuser saying she was traumatized. Why did she wait 22 years before coming out? At just the moment Brett Kavanaugh who had served on Court of Circuit thru former President George Bush finally gets his dream job! Grow up! Kathy Rohr, Wadena
