Letter: All invited to 17A forum
In his strongly partisan letter riddled with untruths and inaccuracies, Chippewa County DFL Chair Harlan Broers incorrectly claimed that no state candidates were invited to a recent candidate forum in Clara City. This is not true. As the late U.S. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan...

Letter: It's time for term limits
It's time to start talking about term limits. We have way too many politicians who have turned their public service into a full-blown career. Public office was never meant as a way to pay the bills. Think about this: Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota's 7th Congressional District...
