Letter: Oh, how the laws change for WE Fest
As I drove to work to meet with my clients on Saturday, July 30, I noticed a few campers lined up along Highway 59 South, three or four, waiting to be first in line to get their camping spot for Wednesday, the day they are allowed into the WE Fest campgrounds. On Sunday, a few more...

Guest editorial: Maybe it's time to start talking politics
Scott Bentson of Park Rapids wants to talk, and he wants us to get back to civil discussions with people of opposing political viewpoints. Bentson wants to talk and that's why he's been hanging out downtown in Pioneer Park with a sign that simply reads: TALK POLITICS? He's inviting...

Letter: Rep. Green should stay out of school district business
Steve Green would best remember that when he was elected to serve our district, not his district but we the people's district, that he was elected to serve all of the people and not just the ones that share his views. The school districts will do what is best for their students and...

Lynn Hummel column: The historic watermelon rollover
What would you do with a pickup load of watermelons? When they write the history of Garrison, N.D., this story will not be included, so you may want to cut out this account and attach it to the history book. You can consider it a footnote to history. It was midsummer when everybody...

Tribune Editorial: DL City Council got it wrong this time, but that's not all they've done
Being a big fish in a small pond isn't easy. People try to spear you...(figuratively). When you are a city councilman, county commissioner, school board member, law enforcement head or anybody that steps up to take on any leadership role, you will get questioned. You will get hammered...

Letter: Kudos to Becker County Landfill
Cheers to the employees of the Becker County Transfer Station! After the city closed the yard waste site just off of Tower Road and Highway 59 on Thursday morning, those of us in the Floyd Lake and surrounding areas had to trek a bit further to the County Transfer Station.

Other Opinions: Restoring faith in representative democracy
If we're not just to throw in the towel and declare representative democracy a noble failure, then we have to restore Americans' faith in the processes of government. To do this, we must pursue a range of reforms and goals, some of which will require years of effort to achieve.

Tribune editorial: An epidemic of drug overdoses
With opioid deaths up 600 percent in Minnesota since 2000, and with Mahnomen County one of the hardest-hit counties in the state, it's good news that the Minnesota Department of Health has received a $345,000 grant to better track and prevent opioid-involved overdoses. Overdose deaths...

Lynn Hummel column: What if Moses had 10 more commandments?
Many dramatic things have happened that were never recorded. History is, at best, an incomplete story. We can only guess at what has been left out. Even the Bible does not tell the whole story. "There are many other things that Jesus did. If they were all written down one by one,...

Letter: City needs to give veteran, landlord a break
I just cannot believe that our city council is willing to uproot/destroy the lives of our elderly and disabled in our community. Why in the world would you do this when the poor woman and her renter are willing to do the work to upgrade/improve the property? Your lack of compassion...

Letter: DL should show compassion towards landlord, veteran
I vote with (Detroit Lakes City Council member) Barb Voss and so do many, many others in this town. That's my sentiment when it comes to depriving an elderly woman an income and tossing a sick, disabled Vietnam Veteran and his dog onto the street
