Letters to the Editor

Dear Terry, The people residing in Caldwell County should be proud of their elected county officials once again. The Planning and Zoning Board’s recommendation for the Commissioners to reject the Grain Belt Clean Line had statewide implications.  Caldwell County joined Clinton County as one of the...
It has been an absolutely wonderful experience to put together the fundraiser for the Disabled American Veterans. It’s a lot of work but the outpouring of support from the heartland of America for our veterans is very heartwarming.  Many of the businesses we visit are not having the greatest time...
To restore and keep the public’s confidence in the integrity of their government, officials must be open, honest and transparent. At a recent Cameron City Council meeting, a motion was made to move forward with an agenda item. A public informational meeting was also attached to the motion. The...
The article “Wind farms generating revenue”, printed in the February 4th edition of the St. Joseph News Press,  paints a pretty tax income picture. But, there is both a credit and a debit column in accounting. In the debit column we need to consider the amount of taxpayer dollars being spent to...
