National parks deserve recognition
With the passing of National Park Week in April, I agree with Kate Lidfors Miller, the author of "National parks crumbling, need support" (Pine Journal, April 26), who claims our national parks deserve more recognition. They deserve this as well as the maintenance and funding Miller...

LETTER: Build a skatepark for less
As a high school girl who's friends with "the skaters," I am delighted to know their many years of hard work have finally paid off. Ever since I was a middle-schooler, I've wanted a place for teenagers to hang out. Even though it isn't for all students, it's a step in the right direction....

LETTER: City needs animal control solution
The city council needs to sit down and figure out a plan of action. They need to sit down and discuss what steps to take next. They need to try and decide how to supply affordable animal control to our city ― whether this is through Friends of Animals or a separate business from...

LETTER: Friends of Animals needs changes
FOA declining to keep up with animal control could easily be viewed as negative, except that other organizations decline to do the same hard-labor job like Duluth and Superior already do. This is the right decision because there are owners who have dangerous dogs that the shelter...

LETTER: U.S. diplomats vital to global leadership
As someone who retired from the Department of State after 37 years of service, and as a former resident of Cloquet, I am proud to have been a member of the U.S. Foreign Service. However, I'm sometimes surprised at how little is generally known about America's diplomats. We serve at...

LETTER: Christian Motorcyclists thankful
The airport in Minneapolis was closed and the Winnipeg Jets of the NHL sat for hours on the tarmac in Duluth. It was also spaghetti feed fundraising day for the Aurora Nights chapter of the Christian Motorcyclists Association. And they were praying.

LETTER: Some gun regs 'common sense'
If "guns don't kill people ..." it stands to reason that they don't save people, either, because, as the National Rifle Association says, they're inanimate objects. >A while back, the NRA said: "Obama is going to take your guns!" It didn't happen, but it sure sold a lot of guns for...

Dear editor, April 22 marks the 50th observance of Earth Day. Each of us can celebrate by reducing our driving, use of electric energy and consumption of animals. That's right! Last fall, Oxford University's prestigious Food Climate Research Network and Germany's Heinrich Bolle Foundation...

LETTER: Landowner against proposed Enbridge route
