thumbs up, thumbs down
Thumbs down to the "you're either with us or against us" attitude. Life is more complicated than that, and just because we report unflattering yet verified information about the Cloquet Police Department, doesn't mean we're "against" the police department or its officers. And just...

To the Editor:When it comes to voting, get informed
