Jan Kosizky: Couple's move to SD story was unneeded

Reader complains that a story about a Minnesota couple's move to South Dakota due to Minnesota COVID-19 rules was not needed.

Reader Opinion letter

I was surprised and somewhat dismayed by the large article in the West Central Tribune from the Forum News Service about the Minnesota couple who moved to South Dakota to escape the COVID-19 restrictions implemented by Gov. Tim Walz.

The restrictions are not for power or control, but are made with careful thought and are in accord with the guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The large amount of publicity given by the West Central Tribune to the family and their presumably primary reason for moving to South Dakota has simply added fuel to the selfish opinion of others who believe the cure being imposed upon them by having to wear a mask.

A newspaper needs human interest stories, but in this case, a smaller mention would have sufficed.
