To the Editor: Sue the Teamsters union
I am sure the union hasn't volunteered to pay for its false claims, so why hasn't the city council directed our city attorney to inquire about pursuing such action? There are plenty of other ways that money could be spent to actually benefit us citizens.

To the Editor: Carlton voters and school board should work together
Now is the time to let Carlton School Board members know what the best path forward is for the district. Attend the next school board meeting and speak during the public comment period, send them an email (see carlton.k12.mn.us/boe/people for email addresses), or reach out to them...

To the Editor: What just happened here?
But yet those same folks spent more than $100,000 (by the Pine Journal's rough estimate) on the chief's suspension and investigation, and that doesn't include the process for hiring a new police chief. Is that a good expenditure of taxpayer money?

To the Editor: Focus should be on quality academics, not buildings
In 2016 Wrenshall School District scored 52.7 percent in math proficiency (a slight improvement over the last few years) while the state average was 59.5 percent. Our reading proficiency for all grades was 50.6 percent (consistently declining over the last several years) compared...

To the Editor: Indian Ed committees voice support for Carlton referendum
We do realize renovations for the South Terrace facility are necessary to proceed with a new building structure and we also stand in support of that. At this time, we are opposing any consolidation plans associated or arising with Wrenshall School District 100 for our American Indian...

To the Editor: Cloquet is waiting for answers
Who exactly filed the complaint with the city and how? Why was the complaint NOT handled by the city administrator, per standard operating procedure? How did the complaint end up in the hands of the mayor, who made the unprecedented move of calling an emergency meeting to put the...

To the Editor: Voters, question all referendum figures
>Ask yourself, for instance, why a $150,000 house (costing "only" $1.60 a day) is used as the example Why not a $250,000 house? At least Carlton doesn't have a $1 million healthcare building.

To the Editor: What could a vote "No" mean to you?
They have tried to consolidate with Wrenshall since before my mom attended Carlton.

To the Editor: Student shares strong feelings about Carlton schools
To the Editor: My name is Eliza. I am going into seventh grade at Carlton High School. I have been going to Carlton since the beginning of my education. I love Carlton so much! The teachers, kids and classes are so great! In my opinion I could never ask for a better school. I love...

To the Editor: There is more than one consolidation option for Carlton
The crux of the problem in the Carlton School District is the School Board's inability to listen to the citizens.

It was a terrific day of golf and fun, raising funds to support the Cloquet-Esko-Carlton boys hockey team with new equipment, meeting travel needs and promoting good sportsmanship for players and fans.

To the Editor: We need to thank the women
They, the women of our fighting men, need the acknowledgement of a damn good job through thick and thin, and even war. Our women stood tall and proud — so give them an "atta girl."

To the Editor: Let's work on better educational solutions for Carlton students
The video highlights significant maintenance problems with the existing Carlton school facilities, and the secondary school in particular. While the facilities are clearly a problem, the Aug. 8 referendum narrowly defines the nature of the complex problems in the district, and offers...

To the Editor: We have skin in the game
We are all connected, but many people can only see their position at this time. When you take a position on an issue and support it, even though the facts do not support it, I suppose it is a game. You get the "deer in the headlights" look when an elder says to your face they will...
