Bulletin letters to the editor: food shelf donations, support for Sieben
The Friends in Need Food Shelf recently purchased three new three-door industrial freezers using the money that had been donated at the registers at Cub Foods in Cottage Grove. We are so grateful to the public for donating as they check out at Cub and to Cub for allowing us to have boxes at the fast-lane registers for all of these years. We decided to use this money to purchase these large freezers so we can buy meat when it is available at a great price.
Friends in Need also wants to thank the community for their support of the community pig roast held at St. Rita's and sponsored by five local churches. We also appreciate the support for our school supply drive. We were able to help over 600 children. Special thanks go out to Northern Tier Energy for donating 500 backpacks. We also are grateful to all of the churches, businesses and individuals who donated, as well as to all of the participants in the Night to Unite. We could not do what we do without the amazing support of the community we serve.

Sieben represents many, not few
One of the qualities I most admire in our senator, Katie Sieben, is her common sense. She knows that good public policies are those that promote freedom and self-sufficiency for the many, not the few. As a result, she listens to all voices and works with other practical policymakers of all political persuasions to create jobs and make sure our tax dollars are working for all of us, not just those with the most lobbyists.
Sieben is not a show horse, she is a workhorse. Whenever I have contacted her about an issue, she has personally responded with a straightforward, fact-based answer. Whenever I have attended a community meeting on a hot topic, our senator is there.
Sieben has done a great job representing the many, not the few, and we should return her to the state Senate by giving her our vote on Nov. 6.
