    This time of year I see lots of dandelions in people’s yards, both blooming and going to seed. I always wish I had little thank-you letters to drop in their mailboxes.

    It is hard to believe, but bipartisan efforts to get serious about bullying are stalled in the Iowa Legislature.

    When will Iowans finally say we won’t take this anymore? When will we agree we will do anything and everything to try to help children in our schools?

    What kind of citizen are you?

    What ever happened to respect and trust for our justice system and the people we employ to uphold it? Have we become so skeptical that we feel compelled to challenge these people at every turn?

    The recent editorial “Honoring motherhood by replacing cow’s milk” published on May 7 mentioned the care of dairy animals and called for more consumption of alternatives to dairy milk, such as soy. As a dairy farmer’s daughter and sixth generation on my family farm, I would like to correct the writer’s misinformation and provide additional facts.

    One of the many great events of the summer in Northeast Iowa is the always popular Winneshiek County fair.

    It is difficult to articulate all that Vanberia has added to our community through the decades. For many of us, Vanberia simply has been a part of our life — and a big part of many special moments within our lives.

    It is paradoxical, but probably predictable that Senator Robert Menendez, the New Jersey Democrat who dared to challenge President Obama’s agenda, was indicted on corruption charges.

    I would like to express my deep gratitude for the recent care I received at Winneshiek Medical Center under the offices of Dr. Tyler Menke and Docter Randall Bremner.

    I am grateful to Sheila Radford-Hill and the Luther Diversity Center for leadership in intercultural understanding and deepening my awareness of white privilege, white fragility and racism as seen from the point of view of our minority populations.

    I am forever amazed at the high and lofty caliber of music we draw to Decorah.

    Once again Iowa is in the national political news. Now we have a presidential candidate going to small venues to meet real Iowans. Sounds good, unless we go beyond one media outlet to find out what is really happening.

    I read with dismay the news that the Decorah School District has opted to have the 2016 High School graduation on the same day as the Luther College commencement.

    I was recently talking with my fifth grade granddaughter about our National Anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag and country. It troubled me to learn that her class seldom recites either.

    In the March 26 Decorah Journal, a front page article states “Winneshiek County has been ranked the seventh most economical county in Iowa for home purchase closing costs.”
