    TransCanada, the company who wanted to build the Keystone XL pipeline, is now suing the U.S. government for the loss of (unknown and unknowable) future profits because of the pipeline’s cancellation. A panel of international lawyers will decide this lawsuit, not a U.S. court.

    I enjoy reading the letters to the editor in newspapers. You get to see what people are passionate about. Writers put a lot of time and effort into expressing how strongly they feel about an issue. The letters are original and heartfelt.

    Drastic changes in how politicians are elected to office is what is needed in order for real change to occur in our government and our country.

    I have been following the comments in the Decorah newspaper about Luther’s Islamophobia petition with more interest than I do most short-lived, hot-button topics that seem to pop up in our community.

    Once again, it’s time for New Year’s resolutions, particularly those to improve our diet and exercise routine.

    This is a report at the end of 2015 about what the Community Conversations on Gun Sense, sponsored by the Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center, have covered since Julie and I read that book, “The Last Gun,” by Mr. Diaz.

    The holidays are over. Time to focus on the next big day. February 1 in Iowa is big. Caucus day. The day Iowa starts the process to elect the next president of the United States.

    On Christmas Eve, the newspaper published a letter from Joie Cole in which she took me to task for my work against Islamophobia. She made it clear, as she has on other occasions, that Luther College would be a better place without me.

    Rather than learn from enlightened Muslim and Christian leaders, who are concerned about radical activities of the Islamic State (ISIS), Todd Green is once again rallying students to call persons, who are concerned with violence, “Islamophobes.”

    I am not here to write about Joie Cole. I am not here to defend my father, Todd Green, about Ms. Cole’s Christmas Eve opinion piece titled, “Green Makes Luther a School to Avoid,” as much as I would like to.

    In response to the Dec. 24 letter to the editor, “Green Makes Luther College a Place to Avoid,” written by Joie Cole, I could provide an extensive list of all the reasons why Todd Green is an exceptional addition to the Religion department at Luther College.

    I am writing in response to Joie Cole’s letter of Dec. 24 titled “Green makes Luther a college to avoid.” Ms. Cole’s letter is in response to the leadership exercised by my Luther College religion department colleague Todd Green in developing a public statement taking a stand against Islamophobia.

    I am writing in response to an article that was published recently in the Decorah Newspaper about Professor Todd Green and his influence on the academic integrity of Luther College. While I cannot hope to speak for him, nor include everything I would like to say in a short piece, it is crucial that another opinion be entered into the democratic and social dialogue of the Decorah community.

    Have you opened the last letter from Mediacom? It states that they are dropping channels WLAX-Fox La Crosse-8 and KXLT-Fox Rochester – 11.

    My husband, Rocky, is looking for the medic who saved his life in June of 1967. Rocky caught his leg in a power take-off and couldn’t get it out because he had on new jeans which didn’t rip.
