On the road again – Being a GSL gymnast is worth it

It’s a 12-mile drive from Stewart to Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart High School and another 23 miles from Stewart to Glencoe-Silver Lake. For GSL gymnasts Emma Peirce and Ashlyn Aydt, the daily commute to be part of the Panthers’ gymnastics team is worthwhile.
Glencoe-Silver Lake High School has a cooperative agreement with Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart to allow gymnasts from that school to compete at GSL since Buffalo Lake-Hector doesn’t offer gymnastics.

Letter – He wants candidates to sign a contract with voters

To the editor,
Citizens of Minnesota and the United States of America: It is a new year and an election year and I for one do not want to see our state and nation keep going on the path on which we are headed. We need to take back our country.
One way we can do this is by creating a contract with Minnesota and a contract with America. Nationally, policies like:
(1) Ending open borders policy and finishing the wall.

Letter – Newman opposes Gov. Walz ‘going soft on crime’

To the editor,
As crime rates skyrocket, Gov. Walz and the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission are going soft on crime by shortening the prison sentences for people who commit a crime while on probation or parole.
In an environment with an already overburdened police force, Gov. Walz and his failing administration have put our officers and communities at further risk.
Dangerous criminals should not be given a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Cost of doing business – Our view: Who gets it both ways?

Like it or not, there is a cost of doing business these days.
For reasons that are at best befuddling, the balance between labor and management has shifted toward labor. We offer the $18 per hour wage a convenience store is offering as a starting wage for arguably unskilled labor. Yet for some reason, some of our local elected representatives don’t see it.
Or, they just don’t want to admit there’s a problem and deal with it.
