Letter: Responding to 'Liberty for all'
In response to Lee Paulson's Oct. 30 letter "Liberty for all" one cannot help but notice, in his pejorative comments on the church, the Bible, mission history, the Bill of Rights, minority issues, Christian clergy, the Pledge of Allegiance, etc., that his limitations are unlimited. And...

Letter: The true cost of dairy project
It was noted that the milk production factory to be located in a suburb of Willmar is again on the docket for approval. It is interesting that there seems to be little concern or alarm on the part of Willmarites. One wonders what their reaction will be when hundreds of milk and feed...

Letter: Say no to immigration
On March 26 your paper presented a front-page article bringing attention to the corporate-sponsored amnesty rally in Washington, D.C. It suggests that support of those who break the laws of this nation is a worthy cause. The real issue is whether the United States will continue to...

Letter: A time for faithful dissent
As ELCA Lutherans get bullied by pastors, and pastors get bullied by bishops, let's all remember to thank God for faithful dissent. When those of the liberal persuasion (i.e.

Letter: A lesson in helping others
It was actually nice to read a good story in the West Central Tribune on Dec. 7. It is nice to know that there are good Samaritans in our surrounding community that were willing to help out Norman Rohner with his harvest during his time of illness.

Minnesota Opinion: On Norman Borlaug
An excerpt from recent editorials in Minnesota newspapers: By The Associated Press On Norman Borlaug: It is perhaps a sad thing that so many people know who Alex Rodriguez is, or Mel Gibson, or Paris Hilton, or even Brett Favre, and so few know the name of Norman Borlaug. Yet,...

Walking away from the church
In your reprint of the Fargo Forum article, "ELCA votes to allow non-celibate homosexuals to serve in the clergy" (Page 1, Aug. 23), presiding Bishop Mark Hanson is quoted as saying in a press conference: "It would be tragic if we walked away from one another" (i.e., separated). It's...

Letter: People and their opinions
People always deserve respect because they are people; but ideas don't, they need to be challenged. Regarding "Homosexuality isn't a sin," (Public Forum, April 28) one has a right to their own opinion, but not to their own facts. The question about ordination of practicing gays,...

Beware of large dairy proposal
As a resident of Colorado and part-resident of Willmar, I noted a recent article published in the West Central Tribune regarding plans to build a 5,000-head dairy near the city limits of Willmar. If the residents of Willmar could all see a similar cow confinement operated by Con-Agra...

Letter: Another pick for president
If you look in the newspapers or listen to the news on TV, you would think only two people are running for president. Well, the good news is that we have another choice we can vote for; his name is Bob Barr. Both Barack Obama and John McCain either want to keep things as they are...
