Trump wrong to attack Hillary through her husband
I understand why Donald Trump is bringing up Bill Clinton's past indiscretions—but I don't understand how Trump can relate it to Hillary or how it could possibly reflect on her character. I admire her for staying with her husband and keeping her family together. Forgiveness...

Letter: Attend the meeting on Tuesday -- ATV riders have run all over Becker County
Will the public meeting this Tuesday evening prove to be a new turning point or a road map for continuing the current practice of neglect, mismanagement, abuse and deterioration for Becker County forest lands?

Letter: 'Tale of two choices' for residents of LP-A district
This is a Tale of Two Choices -- which scenario will you choose? A "yes" vote on the Lake Park-Audubon building bond referendum will allow us to: 10.5 -- Accept a one time offer of $10.5 million in stimulus money. 10. -- Welcome families and businesses that are waiting to...

Letter: Vizenor 'appalled' at Bellcourt letter, Record
It is appalling that a letter like the one written by Ray Bellcourt in the May 8 Becker County Record was printed for your readers. There is enough negative news about the White Earth Indian Reservation (crime reports, drug busts, and assaults) in this newspaper without printing...

Letter: We deserve better from our elected government
The time has come for all of us to face the facts that we (and that means all of us) have allowed our government, our elected officials, to spend us into this fiscal mess we are in. We all say we cherish freedom, but at the same time we allow government to give us a little tax money...

Letter: Where's the oath for LP-A school board?
Having been in attendance at the Jan. 8, 2009 LP-A re-organizational meeting, I could not understand the absence of the oath of office and swearing in of the newly elected candidates to the board. In the past this was always a part of the election process at LP-A so the public and...

Letter: Is state best served by bonding limit?
State government can't do much to revive the flagging economy -- or can it? The constitutional requirement that the state budget be balanced every two years gets in the way of the kind of countercyclical spending that the federal government is contemplating. When revenues fall during...

Letter: DirectTV broke agreements with subscribers
As DirectTV subscribers, we feel that contracts and agreements with us, the consumer, have been broken. In the past year, channel 4 (CBS, KSJB) and channel 11 (NBC, KVLY) have been merged into one corporation that owns both, domiciled in Texas. At that time, we figured it was only...

Letter: Abortions need to end now in America
An elderly friend of mine calls me on the average of once a week. She is haunted by a choice she made about 40 years ago. She is finding it hard to forgive herself for eliminating what she now knows was her developing child, through the choice of abortion. Though she has repented...

Letter: Freedom of Choice Act is wrong
January comes again and another anniversary for Roe v. Wade. The power elite of our secular culture continue to proudly declare a celebration of a culture of death in our land. Our recent election has raised up a seeming mandate for a high celebration of legalized abortion on demand....

Letter: U.S. Rep. Bachmann is an embarrassment to the state
I am responding to a letter to the editor that appeared in the Detroit Lakes Tribune at the end of November. It was written by former resident Dick Flomquist, who was critical of the newspaper for running an unflattering editorial page cartoon of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. He...
