  • Dear Editor:


    Over a month ago, your newspaper carried a story about my granddaughter, Tinashe, who was appearing on “Dancing With The Stars.” For those of you not familiar with the television program, it is in its 14th year on ABC where a “professional” dancer is paired with a “star.”

     I have been perplexed that good people will vote against their own (and our own) best interest. How is it, that in these times, when our society becomes more and more obviously toxic, tragic, and divided, can decent, intelligent, good hearted people, prepare to vote for more of the same earth killing, people crushing, money driven insanity that we can hear and see every day?

    Well, my dear Decorah area voters, what do you think of your president as he struggles to hold on to Saudi arms sales? Not for the first time, he buddies up to corrupt dictators with blood on their hands.

    Though I am an Iowan right-leaning independent voter, first and foremost, I am a woman. I simply cannot accept the recent behavior of the Republican Party. Uncivil and unjust actions such as separating families from one another, forcing children to be caged, publicly mocking victims of abuse and assault, and the uncalled for TV ad campaigns which threaten other parties are just some of the reasons for which I am currently troubled.

    In the election of our next Iowa governor, I believe a candidate’s character matters most of all. Because for decades I knew Fred Hubbell and his extended family while rearing my three daughters in Des Moines, I believe I should share what I know of Fred Hubbell’s character.

    Winneshiek County is fortunate to have good people running for offices on both sides of the political spectrum, as well as those running as Independents.

    The position of Winneshiek County Recorder is on the ballot in November. The incumbent is not running. I urge you to consider voting for Connie Askelson-Kuennen for County Recorder in the November election.

    It is my privilege to write a letter of support for Jayne Schultz, candidate for Winneshiek County Recorder.

    The citizens of Winneshiek County have been fortunate to have a Courthouse staffed with capable and fine people. As part of that staff, Jayne has been Deputy Recorder for 15 years.

    I write to share my strong support for Jayne Schultz, running as an independent candidate for Winneshiek County Recorder. You probably know Jayne, because she’s been the Deputy Recorder for the last 15 years.

    Here’s some information for voters to consider before casting a ballot in this election. The Republican corporate tax cuts have helped create a 17 percent increase ($113 billion) in the federal deficit to $779 billion in 2018 going against all historical patterns when the economy is strong and unemployment is down.

    We believe that Melissa O’Rourke has the qualities needed to serve us as a Winneshiek County supervisor.

    Our mothers have been on Medicaid, because they lived to be over 90 and spent many years in nursing homes. When their assets were spent, Medicaid stepped in, thankfully, as they both required care that we could not give.

    Melissa O’Rourke will be an asset to the Board of Supervisors which is why I am supporting her. Melissa has an educational background and a broad range of experiences that will benefit the discussions and decisions of the Board as the members deal with the future of Winneshiek County.

    You can live in a town; you can live in the country. You can own a home or a condo or rent an apartment. You can be old or young, have kids or a dog or just live by yourself. You can pay a lot for where you live or not. 

    But no matter if you are famous, infamous, or just a regular person, an important piece of your life is your neighbors. There is nothing better than a good neighbor and nothing worse than a bad one. You can respect your neighbors and vice versa even if you have a different lifestyle and set of beliefs.

    In response to your opinion ion Tuesday, May 24: “Synchronicity: Even the Pope supports ‘Pride.’”

    Each week at church we confess our faith with the words of the Apostles Creed which is a statement of what Christians believe and teach (also the Nicene Creed).
