To the Editor...In support of the garage sale bulletin board idea
To the Editor: I read the article "A new kind of garage sale sign sprouts in Cloquet" on the front page of last week's paper and wanted to affirm the suggestion made by City Planning and Zoning Administrator Al Cottingham regarding the possible creation of an outdoor Community Bulletin...

To the editor..Seems like hypocrisy to me
To the Editor: There's a segment of society that believes a background check or waiting period for gun purchase is an infringement on a Constitutional right to bear arms. We can't register guns, you mustn't impose a waiting period, or 10-minute instant background check at gun shows...

To the editor: It's not OK to flush, throw away medication
To the Editor: As the resource and recycling coordinator for Carlton County, I felt compelled to respond to misleading information conveyed in a health advertisement titled "Medication Disposal Guide" located on page A9 of the Thursday, April 25, 2013 Pine Journal. The advertisement...

To the editor...Exchange student will miss Cloquet
To the Editor: I am a reader of the Pine Journal and this is a poem I have written titled, "This is Not Goodbye." I would love to see this in the paper because I am a foreign exchange student and I would like to leave a part of me in Cloquet because I lived here during my stay in...

To the Editor...Do not move Veterans Park
To the Editor: VFW Post 3979 became involved in Veterans Memorial Park in 1974. Commander Bernard Juran went to the City Council to ask that the park receive its name. Harvey Olson donated equipment to dredge the pond. In 1978 we went before the Park Board and got permission to put...

To the Editor...Great experience in Cloquet
To the Editor: I had the privilege of holding my youth skills baseball clinic in Cloquet on Saturday, April 20, at the Cloquet Middle School gym. I had a strong turnout of nearly 30 boys and girls from the communities of Cloquet, Wrenshall, Scanlon and Esko. I have held my clinics...

To the Editor...Do not move Veterans Park
To the Editor: We, the combined Honor Guard of Cloquet, do NOT agree with the moving of Veterans Park to Dunlap Island. The drawing shown has no space given for flags, or the large guns or the tank. The tank would be very expensive for the city to move, [and] the platform needed...

To the Editor: Reader praises decision to increase vocational offerings
To the Editor: I am very impressed by the Cloquet School Board for its commitment to vocational education. With the addition of one more vocational teacher, Cloquet has taken an important step in helping students who have been overlooked by the emphasis on college prep courses over...

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.
