Letters to the editor
April 20, 2013
To the Editor: Newspapers need to be fair in crime coverage
To the Editor: I was publically rebuked in last week's letter, "Newspaper was 'doing its job.'" The letter writer and I have no quarrel about a newspaper publishing an article about someone on probation. What I have a problem with is singling out one person. There are hundreds of...

To the Editor: Lessons learned -- and not learned -- in high school sports
To the Editor: What's fair anymore in local high school sports? What are coaches teaching our children who on some days spend more time with them than we have a chance to? Here's what I've learned as a parent of a Cloquet High School athlete. It's OK to talk or not stand at attention...

To the Editor...Newspaper was 'doing its job'
To the Editor: In response to Tony Sheda's March 30th letter "Follow-up story was too much": I was shocked that the letter writer was critical of the Pine Journal's reporting on a review hearing for a man that had terrorized a neighborhood.

To the Editor: Politicians don't represent 'we the people'
To the Editor: "We the People of the United States of America" -- what does that mean? Do not think that testifying before the House of Representatives or Congress will give you that answer, or maybe it will. I had a bird's eye view of how our representatives represent we the...

To the Editor....Let's just play ball
To the Editor: I am writing this in response to Rodney King's letter about the Cloquet basketball coaches. First of all, if you are that concerned about an Indian playing on an all-white team, if I'm not mistaken there is an Indian school just west of town, with a basketball team....

Parent seeks answers from Cloquet coach
To the Editor: Today I am playing the race card. The Cloquet Lumberjacks basketball game loss to Grand Rapids happened because our coaches blew it. Let me say that again. Our Cloquet basketball coaching staff lost that game for our team and prevented us from advancing to the state...

Father supports child care union
To the Editor: My child care provider is a part of my family. I have to trust that my provider has the ability and resources she needs to provide care for my 5-year-old son. I know she can't work for less, and she knows I can't pay any more. The Child Care Collective Bargaining Act...

Follow-up story was too much
To the Editor: In reading the March 14 Pine Journal, I was appalled to read a [story] about a peeping Tom. I had to check and see if I was reading the National Enquirer. To re-hash an event that took place a year ago is despicable. This man paid his debt so why drag him through...

To the Editor...Thank you for coverage
To the Editor: I wanted to write to thank you, Jamie and the Pine Journal for publishing such a great article highlighting our volunteers at Friends of Animals. Many people are unaware of what a big role our volunteers play in the daily operations of the shelter and it was a great...

To the Editor...Don't saddle down USPS more
To the Editor: For the life of me I can't imagine anyone proposing the U.S. Postal Service start selling fishing and hunting licenses when I can already purchase one at several places in my own town. This federal government of ours has a proven track record that it is incapable of...

To the Editor...Students, teachers thank CEF
To the Editor: On March 3, eighth-graders from the Cloquet Middle School were given the opportunity to travel to St. Paul's Park Square Theatre to view Goodrich and Hackett's production of "The Diary of Anne Frank." On behalf of those 160 eighth-graders and the chaperones who accompanied...

To the Editor...Union appreciates working with LCP
To the Editor: During the summer of 2011, the local union became aware of a mounting feeling of disconnect from the employees at Lake Country Power. The union attempted several times to inform LCP management of the feedback they were receiving with the hopes and expectation that...

To the Editor...Taking guns from 'good guys' is a mistake
To the Editor: This letter is in response to the letter to the editor "Common sense versus hysteria" in the Jan. 25 edition of the Pine Journal. I agree with the opening sentence of the letter. I, too, have no problem with having to have a background check in order to purchase a...

To the Editor: Barnum teachers want to keep union strong
To the Editor: In a recent letter, Linda Redetzke, president of Education Minnesota-Barnum, gracefully complained about the Barnum School Board's decision to hire an attorney to conduct contract negotiations with the Barnum teachers. Those attorney's fees could be going towards a...

To the Editor...Kudos to local business
To the Editor: I want to report a breath of fresh air we discovered at a local business that has completely bucked the modern trend by making customer service their top priority along with providing top-quality services. Services like we once expected and received from all local...
