Letter: Disagrees with writer
Dear Editor, I would like to point out to Steve Nichols that "separation of church and state" is not in the First Amendment to the Constitution. That phrase was actually only used in a letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Church. The First Amendment states, "Congress...

Letter: Offers info on debate
Dear Editor, Last week, once again, a badly misinformed reader repeated the lie that has literally changed the face of America over the last 60 years, when he circuitously accused me of "forcing religious views on him." Because, while the "separation of church and state" has been...

The children of two men killed in a La Crosse area church 23 years ago are not happy that the killer is being freed. A state appeals court ruled Thursday that Bryan Stanley, 53, should be released from a state mental institution in Madison. It's where he's been since a jury found...

Letter: Church should 'open its doors'
A letter in the last issue of the Star-Observer begs for a reasoned response. In it, writer Karen Trinko presents a muddled and arrogant defense of the Roman Catholic Church and its continuing legal battles due to claims of sexual abuse by priests. Here are a few points for consideration: There...
