GUEST VIEW: What it takes to be an effective citizen
I frequently hear from people who are exasperated by the obstacles they have to overcome in order to make a difference: fellow citizens who are ignorant of the system, politicians who are too obtuse or self-interested to see the light, incompetence in the bureaucracy, officials protecting...

To the Editor: Defoe a great friend, leader and person
Thanks to Pete, not just Fond du Lac, but this whole county and region thrive with a “healthy today,” one that he saw for us so many years ago. All of us are so much the worse for his passing and our world is a poorer place.

Let this holiday remind us: Show respect
Our founders knew something that still holds true today: Doing the right thing isn’t always easy. As the 13 colonies discovered, sometimes you end up in a war with one of the most powerful nations on earth. Other times, you end up defending yourself against people who strongly disagree...

Guest Commentary: The case for limited government
In fact, I’d argue that limited government is more often part of the solution than it is a problem. It funds core functions — such as infrastructure, the court system, and national security — that allow the private sector to flourish. It sustains national parks, interstate highways,...

GUEST VIEW: City, county officials must say ‘no’ to proposed garbage landfill
As a small and close-knit community, we have always felt that the people we elect will have our interest and concerns as their top priority in making decisions. Any changes to the existing landfill — no matter how big or small — will affect our present and future citizens in Cloquet...

To the Editor:Cloquet isn’t listening to residents
To the Editor: I am writing to say I am mad and sad to see Handevidt Funeral Home being torn down on Washington Avenue. I feel that the voice of the common citizen in Cloquet was not heard before this was approved. I am tired of the city listening to money versus people. I am not...

To the Editor: Cloquet Cemetery Association’s most wanted
To the Editor: The ones responsible for the damage at Hillcrest Cemetery are still at large. Citizens, we need your help in bringing those responsible to justice. If you know of anyone involved, please call the superintendent at 218-380-1839 or the Cloquet Police Department. We are...

To the Editor: Alcohol declared to be food
To the Editor: For 38 years we have been paying an annual fee of about $300 to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture for a food handler’s license to operate our grocery and meat departments. The fee is based on annual retail sales. This year the department decided alcohol is a...

To the Editor: Retirees coffee party enjoyed by all
To the Editor: The 11th Annual District Retirees Coffee Party was a big success. More than 50 former employees got together Monday, June 6, to visit and reminisce. There was loads of conversation and laughter. The Cloquet Educational Foundation hosts this reunion in recognition of...

To the Editor: Let’s work on the merger of Cloquet, Scanlon
Both cities have paid for the study and found out what the merger would do for each city. It seems the elected officials forget they are working for the people who elected them. Seeing the study was done and paid for with citizens’ money, a public meeting for both cities should...

Thumbs up to the city of Cloquet and all the people who worked on the park plans for the new and improved Pinehurst Park. While Pinehurst has always been the jewel in the heart of Cloquet, it’s now an even more sparkling oasis for residents and visitors alike, with new paving on...

To the Editor:Cemetery vandals cause great hurt
I don’t think our schools are responsible for teaching our youth to be respectful — it has to be learned at home while growing up! I can’t believe we have these terrible people in our community. I guess they have never lost a loved who was close to them.

Letter To the Editor: School board needs to make the best deal
To the Editor: The Cloquet School Board Report in the May 26 Pine Journal revealed some items that seem questionable to me. The superintendent wants to keep most of the school board out of construction change order decisions that are under $100,000. We taxpayers elect, and I believe...

To the Editor:FOA move is a good idea

To the Editor:Visitor found ‘Minnesota nice’ in Cloquet
To the Editor: I came to Cloquet to camp for three nights and four days. On the way I had truck problems but managed to get to Spafford Park Campground, barely unhooking the camper before the truck died. The campground hosts were very helpful in jumping the pickup and to get it...
