So much for freedom

To the editor: In the late 1950’s, my high school teachers at Tracy, who were mostly WWII and Korean war veterans, warned us about brain washing. They also told us that in Communist countries people were told to report, to the authorities, their neighbors activities, if they had large ...

Trump risks a GOP disaster in Georgia

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he is focusing “125 percent of my energy” on changing the results of the 2020 election. He is fixating on the wrong thing. Not only is this quixotic effort destined to fail, it could very well hand Democrats control of the Senate — and with it ...

Help nursing home staff protect their residents

To the editor: In times of distress, we naturally turn to our family and loved ones for comfort. As the Nursing Home Administrator at Oak Hills Living Center in New Ulm, I have witnessed how COVID-19 has sadly upended all sorts of family gatherings this year. My co-workers and I are doing ...

Vandalism

To the editor: For years my husband has put out displays for Halloween, Christmas, etc. for children to enjoy. We expected vandalism to happen in early spring when we put out the American Flag and some Trump items. On Nov 20 the vandalism amounting to $100 took place. Now its not the money, ...

Purpose of masks hasn’t changed

To the editor: In WWI soldiers were given a mask to protect them from the gas that might be in the air they were breathing. Masks were issued to soldiers in WWII for the same purpose, so they could put them on to protect themselves. All my life I have been told if I’m working in dust I ...

Republicans need to speak up

To the editor: “Silence is Golden” until it is not. There is no leadership coming from the top of the Republican Party, not from Vice President Pence, nor from Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell or from South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and certainly not from President Trump’s ...

Where’s the local COVID news?

To the editor: Is The Journal aware that COVID is raging in Brown County? Aside from a little blue box with State and County statistics, there is no information about how the virus is affecting Brown County. News is information that is directly useful to people, and we are all concerned about ...

Doctor asks all to follow COVID guidelines

To the editor: I just finished two especially difficult weeks caring for patients at NUMC hospital. My training has made it possible for me to help people in my community with different health problems. Most recently we at NUMC have been dealing with a surge of COVID-19 patients. I work with ...

Aren’t we ALL Americans?

To the editor: I was puzzled by a reference in a recent letter to the editor of “ordinary Americans.” Aren’t we just ALL Americans? May we never forget our connection to each other and always treat each other with kindness and respect. Marcella Bode New Ulm

Poor choice in polling topic

To the editor: I was very disappointed to see the most recent poll questioning the integrity of the election. Through the post-election fallout, the Trump campaign has lost almost every single court case it has filed. The “evidence” of voter fraud exists only through unsourced YouTube ...

We must all do our part to stop COVID-19

To the editor: As the physician and nursing leaders of hospitals and health systems throughout Minnesota, we have an important message to share regarding stopping the spread of COVID-19. Hospitals, health systems and health care providers are watching with growing concern as COVID-19 cases ...

Let’s hear from a Leftist

To the editor: This letter is occasioned by some of what is in the comments under my previous letter. The Leftist referred to is Professor Mark Crispin Miller, who was targeted “for proposing that students consider more than one point of view on the subject of masks,” and who tells his ...

Thank you, election workers!

To the editor: I was honored to be one of the election judges this year for my precinct. On the election day, all the head judges, head judge in training (I and one more lady), and early shift election judges showed up a bit before 6 a.m. when we were expected to be there. All the tables, ...

Concede 2020 election…?

To the editor: This is my hopefully short reply to Dr. and Mrs. Kluge concerning the 2020 election. First of all, I thank you so much for printing my name so many times, indeed, you’re making me famous... LOL You are correct in stating H. Clinton conceded the 2020 Election, and I should ...

Trump is still president of ordinary citizens

To the editor: I felt I needed to write after the reading the laughable “Ode to Joe” column by Kathleen Parker (Nov. 10 Journal). She stated Biden’s beholden to no one and would not work on “the liberal wish list.” HA! The former presidential Democrat candidates are lining up for ...

What reception did Trump get?

To the editor: Today I heard NPR discussing how kind the Bush administration was to newly-elected Obama in helping him transition into the White House. I think it would be nice if NPR would report on how the Obama administration “helped” newly-elected Trump transition into the White ...

The Virus, abortion, health care and climate

To the editor: We are worried how many people will get the Virus. We see in the paper how many people are getting the Virus. Do we hear how many people died per day before we had this Virus, and where do we find how many people were aborted per day? I have in my possession a paper that says ...

Park priorities should include Goosetown

To the editor: The New Ulm Park and Recreation Commission is looking at priorities for new neighborhood parks in older areas and new subdivisions. I was on the Commission in 2015 and proposed a new playground in south Goosetown. It was approved by a 9-0 vote. In 2017 Commissioner Dave ...

Important to fight for voting integrity

To the editor: I applaud those who have recently written letters about the Biden family scandal, and about voter fraud. If voting is important, aren’t concern about voter fraud and willingness to expose and fight it just as important? We can hardly expect the mainstream media to be ...

Facts about 2016 election

To the editor: Brian Nolan’s letter to the editor in The Journal Nov 10, 2020 invited comparison between the elections of 2016 and our most recent election. The presidential election between Trump and Clinton occurred on Nov.8, 2016. Secretary Clinton gave her concession speech on Nov. 9, ...
