Bulletin letter to the editor: Armstrong was nurturing environment for son
The 2012-13 school year ended for District 833 students on June 5, which brought about the end of our son's elementary school experience and the transition to middle school. While we look forward to the new challenge, we also feel sadness at leaving Armstrong Elementary behind. Our...

Bulletin letters to the editor: Newport library, Food shelf thank you
Leave library alone The Newport library has been a success in 2012. So say the mayor, council members and most users. But the mayor and a few others also say they want to "catch up" and "figure it out." What's to figure out? Everyone likes what's going on, but at least one council...

Jacobus misleading on Crosswinds funding claims I was surprised to read in your story "Crosswinds bill picks up steam in Legislature" that Superintendent Keith Jacobus said "current estimates put 833's financial loss to Crosswinds at $400,000. But that could grow if Crosswinds picks...

Schoen's response to gun bill critic 'very arrogant' Rep. Dan Schoen, we have done our homework. The way you ended your letter to the editor ("Bills don't strip Minnesotans of gun rights," Feb. 20) is a very arrogant way to talk to a constituent. Did you learn that at the police...
