    Is anyone in Decorah or Winneshiek County happy with the customer service, rates, or reliability of your current Internet service provider? It’s quite clear that our current options have not proven competent.

    There are some pretty stark numbers that you will have to deal with if you want to argue against Bill Stowe and the DMWW’s (Des Moines Water Works) lawsuit. I will go through only a few below.

    Last week was National Police Week. This is a national week of observance for those in the law enforcement profession who have had their lives taken in the service of their communities.

    After attending the School Board meeting on Monday, May 11, reading the Thursday, May 14, Decorah Journal, listening to part of “Our Town” on the radio on Thursday, May 14, and watching the “live stream” on the computer, of the 2015 graduation on May 17, I urge our school board to respect our well-established separate Decorah graduation traditions.

    Everybody knows the value in planning, protecting assets and investing carefully. Nobody likes waste. 

    For these reasons, most county residents I talk to are opposed to frac-sand mining. They believe that the county has more to lose than to gain. While we examine the economics of frac-sand mining, we must also examine the economics of fracking because it created the demand for sand.

    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.

    On behalf of CREW (Community Recreation Education Workshop), I would like to thank the community for supporting Decorah High School’s post-prom party.
