Vote for your Social Security and Medicare

Letters

To the editor: Getting old, as they say, is not for sissies. But at least, as they also say, there’s Social Security and Medicare to look forward to. At least there will be until Mitch McConnell and the Republicans get their hands on it. Republicans have vowed to “reform” Social ...

Feehan the clear choice

To the editor: On Nov. 6, the voters in southern Minnesota will have the opportunity to elect a new member of Congress to represent us in Washington. I urge them to choose the candidate who best represents the values that we live in our everyday lives and who will be a voice for ALL of us in ...

Hagedorn: The Ag Candidate

Trump should leave Constitution alone

Editorials

Republicans used to bash President Barack Obama for his “imperial presidency” — his use of executive orders to do things that the Republican-controlled Congress wouldn’t go along with. What, then, do they have to say about President Donald Trump, who Axios on HBO he could to sign an ...

The unvarnished truth

Letters

To the editor: Another day, another mailer denigrating and misrepresenting Jim Hagedorn’s career. Dan Feehan and his Democrat allies have spent millions telling us that in the last 15 years Dan was a vet, taught school and worked for the Defense Department. But if Dan were a ...

Sheriff’s job needs broader experience

Letters

To the editor: There is a great deal of difference between the job of being a County Sheriff and the job of Police Officer-Investigator. The position of Sheriff requires a much broader skill set, perhaps not as detailed in certain areas, but much broader in scope. The Sheriff plans, budgets, ...

Torkelson working hard for Highway 14

Letters

To the editor: As a longtime advocate for the expansion of Highway 14, I have seen first hand how hard Rep. Paul Torkelson has worked in the Minnesota House to make the project a reality. He helped secure the funding to expand from North Mankato to Nicollet, completed in 2016. He helped ...

Hagedorn’s health plan the right one

Letters

To the editor: There’s an old adage that just because something is repeated over and over again doesn’t make it true. Dan Feehan and the Democrats knowingly distorted Jim Hagedorn’s position on covering pre-existing conditions from attack ad one. It wasn’t true the first time they ...

Hose responds to Gladis

Letters

To the editor: First of all, I want to thank those who contacted me regarding the aggressive letter to the editor. Mr. Jody Gladis, your letter displays anger and bitterness and your attack is unsubstantiated. Furthermore, your information regarding the Drug Task Force is again inaccurate. I ...

Wieland is the perennial ‘Good Cop’

Editorials

We’re sure in his 30-year career as a police officer in New Ulm, Police Chief Myron Wieland did just about every job there was. But there’s one thing he was incapable of doing — playing the “bad cop” in the “good cop-bad cop” interrogation scenario. He is just too cheerful for ...

Kathleen Backer for mayor

Letters

To the editor: We, the citizens of New Ulm, are fortunate to have the opportunity to vote for our next Mayor on election day. Having two candidates makes it important that people show up to vote. I often hear people say things like, “I don’t have time to vote”, or “my vote won’t ...
