  • Dear Editor:


    As Thanksgiving season approaches, I’d like to thank one of the treasures of Decorah -- the Hometown Taxi Company, which started in 1988. Over these many years, I rarely needed to use a taxi, but I was always aware that, if needed, a helpful taxi driver would safely take me where I needed to go.

    My cousin, Daniel Werner, died from injuries sustained in a bicycle-pedestrian accident on the Trout Run Trail. Although Daniel was not the first person to be injured on the trail, my hope is that he will be the last.

    I still prefer our Novembers before Global Warming. We didn’t have this much snow and it wasn’t nearly as cold.

    I am pleased to find that Decorah Newspapers continues to report regularly to the people of Winneshiek County on the details of the mining of frack sand and its use in the business of fracking for gas and oil.

    Amending the U.S. Constitution to eliminate or at least reduce the tide of negative campaign advertising is a bad idea, according to Karl Knudson (Nov. 6). However, an idea called the “People’s Pledge,” which has nothing to do with a constitutional amendment, worked pretty well not long ago in Massachusetts to cut negative advertising way down.

    In the past four weeks, four brochures have arrived at our address sent to “The Dale Family.” (I expect one more before Nov. 4.) The return address was “Crossroads GPS” at a P.O. Box in Washington, D.C. Crossroads is the Political Action Committee (PAC) founded and run by Karl Rove, a former George Bush political advisor. It is funded by wealthy backers.

    As a fellow hog-castrating, farm-raised Iowa female, I can identify with and appreciate Joni Ernst’s background. But I’m not going to be voting for her, and here’s why.

    My name is Dan Marx. I have worked in law enforcement in Winneshiek County for almost 16 years, serving the Sheriff’s Office for 14 of those years. During this time, I have gotten to know Floyd Ashbacher quite well on both a professional and personal level.

    Dennis Karlsborten deserves to be re-elected. The headline/article in the Decorah Journal - 10/16/14 - refers to the bipartisanship by the supervisors on the issue of sand mining.

    I would like to publicly support Dennis Karlsbroten in his bid for re-election as Winneshiek County supervisor. I have known Dennis for quite some time. He has always impressed me as a genuine, honest and diligent person. He is especially passionate about his duties as county supervisor.

    We would like to take this opportunity to tell the voters about our father’s commitment to our natural resources. Through his ideas and teachings, we have learned to appreciate his profound desire to respect and preserve the things that were here before us and the things that will persist long after our time.

    The Winneshiek County Republican Party pictorial news in the Oct. 23 paper stated, “We fought to give it to more of you. Tell me again why you’re too busy to vote (no question mark) — To be continued.”
