I read with great dismay, and a whole lot of fear and disgust, your article about the manual of guidelines (“Lake Elmo design manual focused on small-town charm,” Dec. 4), that the Lake Elmo City Council put forth.

On July 16, I had the honor of celebrating the opening of Valley Cartage in Lake Elmo.
Valley Cartage is a Hudson-based family owned trucking company that moved its logistics operations to the Wipfli building in Lake Elmo.
Kudos to George Campbell of St. Paul for speaking out about the cigarette tax for the Vikings Stadium.
Who voted for this tax to be arbitrarily dumped on smokers; or arbitrarily placed on anyone? Is that move even constitutional? I don’t remember being asked about it. My representative(s) are supposed to represent ME and I don’t ever recall any one of them asking me (or anyone else) what I wanted.
