Railway impact nothing to cheer about
It was nice to see the smiling-faces photo on the front page of the Oct. 5 Budgeteer. The Gary-New Duluth "shack" is set to be renovated with help from a $100,000 Canadian National Railway Company check. Why this gift? Why now? I can only surmise it has something to do with recent...

Cheers for Larry
Dear Larry Weber, I have so much enjoyed your diverse articles on our environment each week in the Budgeteer News. They certainly are educational, particularly for those of us who, like you, are constantly in the woods, always trying to understand Mother Nature. Twin brother Bob...

Active boomers aren’t the only seniors interested in hiking
The active boomers have it right. (“Meeting up with fellow active ‘boomers,’” June 29 Budgeteer) They don’t want to sit around all the time and neither do we. Our group, Senior Hiking Friends, is proof that there can be fun hiking as we actively age. We are in the middle...

Letter to the editor: Minimum wage won’t hurt
Every time I hear that raising the minimum wage will hurt small businesses, I laugh, because I work for a very small business and they pay more than the minimum wage. Every small business I have ever worked for paid more. In fact, a former employer said they always paid more because...

Letter to the editor: Don’t miss the next Health and Wellness Table
Thanks for the article, “Your zip code determines your health just as much as your genes” (May 25 Budgeteer), which highlighted a May 19 event sponsored by the Health and Wellness Table. Over 120 people came together at the Damiano Center to gain a deeper understanding of health...

Letter to the editor: 65, and never had a drink
Breanne Marie Tepler’s editorial (“Cheers! I’m 33 years old and never had a drink,” April 20) was refreshing in a society that’s increasingly dependent on drugs, especially alcohol. Sadly, people use alcohol to relax, loosen up, feel included, feel sexy and too often just...

Letter: You are what you eat: sodium phosphates
I applaud the Budgeteer News for giving a more in-depth look at the health issues of eating processed meats. The April 13 issue featured, “Duluth wishes it were an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile” on the front page. The article focused on the excitement of driving the Wienermobile around...

Letter to the editor: Blessings to the port and the Budgeteer
I was the chairman of the committee that prepared this year’s Blessing of the Port. I want to thank you for the coverage that reporter Teri Cadeau and the Budgeteer gave to our ministry and especially the blessing ceremony. (“Twin Ports, one community” and “The life of the...

Letter: Traffic signal buttons are more trouble than they’re worth
I don’t know whose idea it was to have buttons at several intersections in the city but I don’t think it was a good one, especially in the winter since they’re either covered by snowbanks or you have to climb over one to push it or the other option is to try to cross the street...

Letter: Olympics are physical competitions involving particularly fit bodies
I don’t like to be mean, but I must respond to that annoying letter about the winter Olympics headlined “Russian Olympic ceremonies were beautiful,” published on March 9. Particularly obnoxious is the writer’s screed about the “dark, sexually charged, sleazy entertainment”...

Letter: Russian Olympic ceremonies were beautiful
Despite the political discord with Russia, my husband and I did enjoy the beautiful Olympic opening and closing ceremonies compared to the dark and evil English version two years ago. Russia has contributed great classics which are enjoyed over the world and never will age compared...

Letter: Volunteer at Companies to Classrooms enjoyed article
Dear Editor, I want to thank Cara Lindberg for her article on the great work Companies to Classrooms is doing to help our local students, while saving the landfills. She did a great job describing how it works. As a volunteer at C2C I have had the privilege of checking out the teachers....

Letter: Life House story was well-written
Nicely done, Teri! The story “Overcoming obstacles to education” published in the Jan. 26 issue was a wonderfully written article and has gotten many positive responses. A few of the students’ names were misspelled, “Chris Lind” and “Allen Wever”, but these are small...

Letter: Duluth is at a crossroads concerning mining
When thinking about where the energy comes from to power our society or how we will obtain the minerals associated with high technology, we find that we live in a time of paradoxes. Our region is grappling with the consequences of new proposed industrial projects.

Letter: Attend a caucus, suggest resolution: corporations are not persons
In 2010, our United States Supreme Court granted huge multinational corporations, by its “Citizens United” case ruling, the right to redefine our United States Constitution by redefining the words “person” and “speech.” Multinational corporations should not be legally...
