History Lesson

In November 1923, Adolf Hitler led a violent coup against the democratic system of Germany's Weimar Republic. The coup started in an unlikely spot — a beer hall in Munich, the Burgerbraukeller, far from the capital city of Berlin and its...

 

Play Time Lessened For Unknowns

It is very sad when kids in sports put forth great effort to better themselves and support their team, are good players but because they don’t have the “right” last name, they don’t get equal play time as other players. My fellow co-worker...

 

In Ref. Jeff Olsen's 01/02/2021 Letter

In answer to Jeff Olsen’s letter in the Roseau Times Region of 01/02/2021, of course the Olsen with the E not the O. I want to thank Mr. Olsen for his many compliments for all of my achievements in his article. He states in his article that I...

 

Thank You LifeCare

WOW! What a group of professionals and encouragers I had at the LifeCare Medical Center, all the way from Dr. Lawal and ER staff to Dr. Khan and OR staff, recovery staff, nursing floor staff, radiology staff, PT, OT, housekeeping, and food service...

 

Mr. Olson The Bigot

I have been reading in the Roseau Times-Region in which I take offense to the writings of Mr. Jeff Olson. The way he rants and raves about President Donald Trump, plus the people that support Mr. Trump. It goes on and on and on. I got tired of it...

 

What a coincidence!

What a coincidence! I was sure Doran Horner was already dead or should be. He was fire and brimstone when he was a Roseau County Commissioner. I’ve always thought of him as an attack dog on the prowl, and he's now calling me a bigot because I...

 

Thank You Roseau County

By the time most of you read this my 22-year tenure as your Mayor will have come to an end. Over those many years we, as a community, have seen our fair share of ups & downs, (mostly "ups" I hope). I surely have learned a lot representing the fine pe...

 

Many Americans Have Not Figured This Out

Translated from a Prague newspaper. Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way that you can quickly understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from...

 

In Response: "Believe What You Want to Believe"

Thank you very much for comparing yours truly to Chris Berg! We don’t try to “poke holes at the truth” we try to poke holes in the media lies. Their version of the news is well over ninety percent propaganda with no intent of even trying to...

 

To Buckle or Not......

Back in the late eighties my better half and I were on out way to Steinback. We were west of South Junction when there were flashing lights on the highway up ahead. Getting closer it was obvious it was a traffic stop with a patrol car on each side...

 

Worry About Yourself

This old 1953 model human had a very frustrating and exasperating morning in our own city. It became painfully clear that our country is on a one-way road to destruction. Our democrat socialist party so desperate to be large and in charge of every...

 

Oh Yes They Did!

Will our wonderful politicians still love us in the morning? Since Adam and Eve shared the forbidden fruit Lucifer, Satan, the fallen angel, whatever we want to call him or maybe her, or maybe the third sex liberals talk about so much, has had a...

 

Just A Few More Days!

We should be done with political ads for a couple years. This election year has been something to behold. Some compare to 2016, some compare to 1876. 1876 was a dirty one from start to finish too. It was said that no matter who won that one there...

 

Recognize and Turn From False Narratives

On issues like national security, religious liberty and the right to life, I am voting for candidates who have proven themselves in standing against unsecured borders, oppression, abortion and other policies that destroy life, liberty and the...

 

Response to Pastor Joe Over the Past Three Months

Dear Joe, I am a lifelong Republican and like millions of Republicans will not be voting for Donald Trump. I would not normally declare this in a public forum; however, I am addressing some of your public and curious reasons for presenting us your...

List of 30 Good Things President Trump Has Done For America 1. Judges: Trump has appointed two Supreme Court justices, 53 federal appellate judges, and 146 District Court judges (as well as two judges for the Court of International Trade) who have...

 

Agriculture Forms The Backbone Of Our Economy

Agriculture forms the backbone of our economy. It is a critical concern for everyone living in northwest Minnesota. That is why it is so refreshing to have a farmer stepping up to serve in the state legislature. John Burkel has been farming his...

 

Response to Joe Elick (Pastor)

I read Pastor Joe last week with interest (The Other Side, by Pastor Joe). It appears, from his writing, that he worships Trump, though I am certain that is not truly the case. I would recommend that, along with his reading of carefully selected...

 

COVID, COVID, COVID

COVID, COVID, COVID. All the media seems to know to do is trash Trump’s every move and spew COVID numbers. As stated before, if your personal choice is to wear a mask, then please do. With at least ninety percent of the media owned and run by liber...

 

Line 3

What would you think if I told you that there was a proposal to provide 8,600 jobs to northern MN? What if I told you that the investment would be over $2 billion in private funding? What if I told you that this proposal would lead to increased...

 

Thank you Dan for Fighting for Local Control

It is with deep appreciation that we bid farewell to retiring Rep. Dan Fabian from the legislature. Dan was a true champion for this district. I am ever so grateful for his permitting reform bills that made it possible to build in a timelier manner....

 

Governmental Support Of Our Local Businesses

It is no secret local businesses have been hurt this year from the Covid-19 pandemic.   Everyone took a hit, especially our hair salons and cafes. However, Minnesota businesses were hit extra hard compared to businesses in North Dakota due to the...

Heartfelt Thanks and Support

As a disabled law enforcement officer, I wish to give my heartfelt thanks for Rep. Dan Fabian for his years of public service. He consistently stood with law enforcement. Dan Fabian along with Senator Mark Johnson and Rep. Deb Kiel prioritize our pol...

 

Middle Of The Highway

On the North side of Highway 11, you have Mr. Magnuson who sees that things have to change. He is willing to suck in his gut and bite his lip to try and change things. On the South side of Highway 11, you have Sheldon Larson who has blinders on and...
