What message do our low prosecution rates send?
To the Editor: If it is true that Carlton County ranks lowest in prosecution of felons using a gun in a crime, what message does that say to the most violent in our society? Does that make us less safe if felons using guns aren’t prosecuted? There is a law on the books that...

Board member supports referendum
To the Editor: On Feb. 10, Cloquet School District voters will decide whether or not they want their school district to sell bonds to fund a new middle school. If the people approve, a new school will be built attached to the existing high school. A new middle school is desperately...

Vote yes for Cloquet kids
To the Editor: On Feb. 10, 2015, a Building Bond election will be held by the Cloquet School District. Question #1 pertains to building a new middle school on the same campus as the high school. Cost for this would be $48,930,000. Question #2 includes a new 800-seat auditorium...

To the Editor: Accident by one leaves many in cold and dark
To the Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to give the highest praises to the Minnesota Power crews who spent over six hours in resolving a power issue in sub-zero temperatures. Not only did these employees put in a nearly full day, and then they endured -10 to -18 degrees...

To the editor...Residents should speak out about merger
To the Editor: In the Nov. 21, 201, Pine Journal the Cloquet City Council news Mayor Bruce Ahlgren talked about merger with Scanlon. It stated that the former Mayor Putnam wouldn't talk merger and I am sure the new Mayor Bryant doesn't want to. These people are elected or appointed...

To the editor...Thanks, Good Samaritan
Thanks, Good Samaritan To the Editor: I wish to take this opportunity to thank the Good Samaritan for her wonderful act of kindness Dec. 9th at Super One. It was appreciated more than she will ever know. God bless you! Marilyn Steffer, Cloquet

Letter: A premature Thanksgiving
To the Editor: I feel compelled to share an inspiring event that occurred two days prior to Thanksgiving. On our weekly grocery trip to Super One, we checked out and parked the car next to the exit. Then, I accompanied my elderly mother, who is seeing-impaired, to the nearest bench...

Letter: Faith in humanity restored
To the Editor: I would like to use this opportunity to thank the kind and honest person who turned in to Super One my cash box (from the Craft Show) that I inadvertently (old age excuse) left in a shopping cart after the recent craft show. I also thank the Super One employee who...

Citizen is concerned about Carlton facilities
To the Editor: I am a volunteer for over 35 years at the Carlton Nursing Home/Inter-Faith Care Center. In 2008, I received the adult Volunteer of the Year award from the Care Providers of Minnesota for my work there. I still go there twice a week to volunteer because I care. I am...

When it comes to chair, commode height, one size doesn't fit all
To the Editor: To administrators, business owners and politicians, I find it hard to believe that one size (regarding chair height) fits all in waiting rooms. I realize after I broke my hip in July 2012 that some things should change in society and one is chairs in waiting rooms...

Letter: Cloquet School Board's decision was wrong
To the Editor: I was furious when I heard that the levy was approved by "School board members only." What happened to freedom to vote, and freedom of speech? Who gives you the right to play "God" and make our (the taxpayers) decisions? I have voted down every referendum because...

Education Corner: Cloquet School District shows great AYP results again
Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is a designation the federal government has the states assign to schools each year. It is up to the states to determine a lot of what goes into AYP measurements, and Minnesota has determined that we should have high AYP standards. AYP is only achievable...

To the editor...Duck Dynasty does not 'dumb down' America
So you think Duck Dynasty is dumbing down America? I am trying to figure out what you consider "dumbing down." Could it be how this family respects each other, or how they consider modesty a virtue, or how they are all married and celebrate this as a way of life, or how they are concerned...
