Letter: SSP police are not the problem

My family members served the South St. Paul police department with distinction with service time totaling over 100 years. As a result, I was fortunate enough to witness the first female officer in South St. Paul history be hired, the first African American, two Native Americans, and the first of two Hispanic officers be hired, and recently, the first female Native American/Hispanic promoted to the supervisory role of sergeant.

Letter: 'Thank you'

I would like to thank Convent of the Visitation School for hosting the Camp Invention program this summer. Camp Invention allows children to transform their natural curiosity into big ideas by presenting real-world challenges that require them to use creativity, innovation, problem-solving skills, and teamwork.

Letter: Tax levy

The front-page story in the Sept. 15 issue headlined “Growing tax capacity to bolster IGH budget in 2014” leaves the impression that rising property values is a painless way to expand the budget.

Letter: healthcare

In his column, “How do ACA reforms affect you?” (printed Aug. 18), Mike Rothman, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Commerce, is doing his job of informing the public on the upcoming “ObamaCare” mandates. These insurance mandates (benefits), are known as essential health benefits (EHB).

Letter: 'What should the State do when it collects more revenue than anticipated?'

I applaud Gloria Welp for the letter to the editor she wrote last week, even though she disagreed with a vote I took. She raised an important issue, one that was vigorously debated at the State Capitol this spring.

Letter: From the 2013 Kaposia Days President

Water pollution is an increasingly serious problem affecting our communities, but who is the culprit behind this dilemma? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 72 percent of all toxic water pollution in the country comes from coal-fired power plants, making those plants the No. 1 source. Across the country, plants are disposing of toxic metals including arsenic, selenium, and mercury into our waterways. As a result, our drinking water, fishing areas, rivers and streams are becoming highly contaminated. These chemicals are very dangerous. Research has shown that exposure to these chemicals can lead to birth defects, cancer and even death. Therefore, limiting these pollutants will help clean our rivers and save lives.
