Letter: Would a roundabout be safer?
Another life has been lost this past week at a very dangerous road crossing. The intersection of Highway 71-23, Highway 294 and County Road 24 just north of Willmar has been the site of too many traffic deaths. Various combinations of traffic signs have not helped solve the problem....

Letter: A lesson in saving on gas
A partial help to save on the gasoline crunch (high prices) and save a lot of gasoline: We have been at war in Iraq for over five years. I won't even guess the total amount of money we have spent (or wasted). Not only the cost of our military operations but also the cost of rebuilding...
