Letter: Against tar sands mining, Keystone pipeline
Dear Editor, Among the many gifts left to us by the very wise Chief Seattle is his total respect for the earth and his recognition that we have an obligation to protect and to preserve this precious legacy left to us by those who came before.

Letter: Comments on mooring issue
Dear Editor, The City Council last week discussed the issue of the sailboat moorings. They are no closer to a solution now than they were when they passed a resolution banning dinghies on city property last year. I have had a mooring in Hudson for 36 years. The only thing...

Letter: Liked Ontl gun column
Dear Editor, In last week's paper I nearly missed "Margaret's Musings" until it was pointed out to me by a friend. Finally -- an article of truth, perception and reason when it comes to firearms. How refreshing! Now if she can just convince a few hundred members of Congress...

Letter: These movies not appropriate
Dear Editor, Just a month after the Newtown, Conn., massacre where 20 little children and eight teachers were slaughtered, guess what our greedy, anything-for-a-buck movie writers and producers in Hollywood have been making millions on - you guessed it - No. 1 and 2 at the box...

Letter: Address the 'real' problem
Dear Editor, The knife that O.J. Simpson used to "allegedly" murder two people was not blamed for that horrendous crime. The culture of violence in America started many years ago. Look at where our society has regressed from our moral standards of just 50 years ago. These...

Letter: Don't need more guns
Dear Editor, Gun control is much in the news, as it should be, since the tragedy in Newtown, Conn. In my opinion, this discussion is long overdue and much too important to receive a quick fix made when emotions run high. My hope is that cool heads will prevail and long-term solutions...

Letter: Uncomfortable with column
Dear Editor, In his report on the book "Heads on Beds," Jan. 17 Star-Observer, columnist Dave Wood seems to take great delight in sharing the author's "insider" tips for robbing from hotel mini bars. Maybe next he can highlight a book that offers tips on successful shoplifting....

Letter: Appreciates 'small town'
Dear Editor; To the people of Hudson: Thank you for being a small town. I have always had the privilege of living in small towns. I spoke with one of my brothers yesterday and I said to him, you know what? Every day I go out around town and every day I run into someone I know! ...

Letter: Best to buy locally
Dear Editor, A friend asked me the other day while looking over a stack of books my husband and I recently purchased as gifts for each other and our children if we had bought them on Amazon.

Letter: Lenient sentence?
Dear Editor, I recently noticed that two individuals who were found guilty of theft, here in the Valley, of over $20,000 will do no prison time. Both were sentenced to extended probation and restitution. It's not that I disagree with the sentence, in fact quite the opposite, what...

Letter: Appreciates Kohl's support
Dear Editor, I'm writing because U.S. Senator Herb Kohl deserves a resounding thank you for stepping up on behalf of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). LWCF is the program that ensures Wisconsin has the resources our parks, rivers, and forests need to provide opportunities...

Letter: Dislikes 'disease'
Dear Editor, Last week a caller to a WCCO radio talk show told of a disease that I had not hear of before. Upon learning of this probable contagious disease, it occurred to me that we probably had some of these carriers for this disease here in our Hudson area and in Baldwin and...

Letter: Support ducks, birds by purchasing Duck Stamp
Dear Editor, After hearing Chris Trosen from the St. Croix Wetlands Management District give his most enlightening and educational talk I am inspired to encourage everyone to buy a Federal Duck Stamp. Available at every Post Office for only $15, it is a great deal for this reason:...

Letter-Promises have not been kept
Dear Editor, Barack Obama promised he would improve this nation if he was elected president. He has not. The economy is as bad as it was when he started. Unemployment remains over 8 percent, our family incomes are $4,000 less on average than one year ago, and there are more people...
