Reason to be afraid

To the editor: After having watched the entire one hour plus President Trump news conference on 2-16-17 I have come to the conclusion that Mr. Trump is a mental case. I fear for our nation and the world. Archie Pearson LaSalle

Mainstream media ignore important issues

To the editor: President Trump appeared to enjoy Thursday’s press conference. As the Liberal/progressive media seethed over its inability to control the narrative I recalled Al Capp and his comic strip. He derided student protestors in the 60s by attaching the acronym SWINE to them: ...

Looking for answers

To the editor: Over twelve years ago my sump pump started running every 15 to 20 minutes both day and night and all year long. Of course we had called the City Utility for them to look for a leak. They tested the water from the sump and said it was ground water. We thought it was then coming ...

What can we believe?

To the editor: We can’t have our cake and eat it to. (I Corinthians 10:21) What part of God’s word is right and what part is wrong? Is the part that says there is life in the womb wrong? (Luke 1:44) (Genesis 25:22) There are people today that would have you believe that life does not ...

Gender issues

To the editor: I read through the January issue of National Geographic which was devoted to the exploration of gender. Some people are now telling us there are over 50 genders. They use terms like ‘gender fluidity’ where your gender waffles back and forth between male and female; ...

Time for cooler heads to prevail in Washington

To the editor: For over 60 years, since the Truman Administration, this writer has been a student of American political affairs. This period has included wars, civil rights protests throughout America, the 1968 Democratic Party Convention in Chicago which was seriously marred by violence in ...

School choice

To the editor: I found the School Choice editorial in The Journal puzzling. It seems the message was that since New Ulm has both public and private choices in education, the rest of the nation should have no problem with DeVos’ agenda. This is a misconception. The system works in New ...

Commenting on comments

To the editor: A couple of comments on Letters To The Editor 1.) Bad behavior all around: In a letter to the editor on Friday, Feb. 10, a woman from Springfield starts out, “Recent letters and comments have described liberals and democrats as without a moral core.” “We march today ...

Consider who benefits from legislative and executive actions

To the editor: Thank you to Journal publisher Greg Orear, for his thoughtful commentary on the proposed repeal of the Johnson Amendment, which prevents tax exempt organizations, whether a church or a civic organization, from endorsing political candidates or donating to their campaigns. In ...

Women’s march critics missed message

To the editor: One phrase from a recent letter about the Jan. 21 Women’s March stands out to me: “Although all people have a right to demonstrate, it turned out to be more a Pro-abortion rally than anything else. It was a rally in favor of being allowed to kill and murder unborn ...

Prayer will be needed over next four years

To the editor: I agree with a recent letter to the editor that the next four years will be very difficult. It will be difficult to get things done considering the obstruction politics of the Democrats. It will be difficult to read and watch the biased coverage from newspaper and television ...

Thank you to New Ulm Steel

To the editor: Thank you to the NU Steel for sponsoring Faith Night on Wednesday, Feb.  8 and making it possible for local church youth groups to attend. I attended with the youth from my church. We saw an exciting, competitive game and heard some inspiring comments from Dean Bowyer. Thank ...

Bad behavior all around

To the editor: Recent letters and columns have described liberals and Democrats as without a moral core, uncivilized, having low standards, and fallen brethren. Proof of this mass depravity was the language and behavior of a few among millions at rallies and marches. Besides the unfairness of ...

Thanks for running relevant news

To the editor: I write this letter in response to the gentleman who is concerned that The Journal may be showing bias by printing a front-page story about the Women’s March on Washington and only including articles about the March for Life and Vice President Pence’s speech at that march ...

My View vs. Our (Journal’s) View

To the editor: After reading your view (Opposition, not obstructionism) in last Sunday’s paper I couldn’t help but think back to 2012. I very clearly remember when Senator Mitch McConnell stated numerous times, NO ONE in any way should cooperate with President Obama in his next term. ...

Getting through the next four years

To the editor: Some notes to myself on surviving the next four years: Continue trusting logic, common sense, when using such is disparaged, ignored, skipped over by holders of power at this juncture; Stay steady, calm, when bullied (humor is helpful); Pray, pray for ...

Oak Hills is a ‘gem’ for New Ulm community

To the editor: This letter is way overdue, but we would like to tell you about a “gem” in our community that many people take for granted, until you need it. We are speaking about Oak Hills Assisted Living and Nursing Home. Where does one begin? For almost two years, our parents, Stan ...

The journey of an immigrant – from New Delhi to New Ulm

To the editor: What does it feel like to me an immigrant to the US? More than a quarter of a century ago, I boarded a plane from New Delhi to the US. I had my green card (permanent resident alien) paperwork, and a huge package that contained my chest X-ray (declaring me free of ...

Want to feel better? Give!

To the editor: The lastest issue of the AARP magazine contains health tips that are worth noting.  For DEPRESSION the recommendations include giving a hug or getting a hug.  For even more relief, it suggests MAKING A DONATION.  Giving money to a good cause makes us feel happier, according ...

Judges should not be picking winners

To the editor: As a Minnesotan I am embarrassed by our Senator Franken suggesting he will not vote to support Judge Gorsuch for the Supreme Court because Gorsuch “often sided with business over employees.” Judges are not charged with picking winners and losers.  Their charge is to ...
