We hope people attend one of the many area Memorial Day ceremonies that will take place Monday, May 30. The freedoms Americans will enjoy on that three-day holiday have been dearly paid for in blood by the approximately 1.3-million soldiers who have died in combat and in other ways during this nation’s wars. Countless more suffered […]
(Note to readers: Several people who want to quit smoking recently emailed me and asked if I would again publish the following column. It was originally published in the Aug. 23, 2013 Newsleaders.) I quit smoking. Twice. The first time was in 1987. For six months. All it took is “just one” cigarette. Hooked again. […]

I was fortunate to have been asked to run the pole-vault event at the Alexandria Area High School track […]
Marlene Schlichting, Rice Sorry to read that Ron Scarbro will no longer be contributing to the Newsleader. I like to read Dennis Dalman’s column and also liked Ron Scarbro’s column for the very reason they see things from a very different perspective. I often did not agree with either, mostly Dalman’s but that doesn’t mean […]
Tony Kroll, Sauk Rapids I thank the Sauk Rapids-Rice Newsleader for championing the cause of the immigrants and refugees. Sauk Rapids is a friendly town and Minnesota is a welcoming state. I am glad to live here. I want it to stay that way. There is lots of space and food and work here. New […]
Joe Larkey, Sauk Rapids A serious problem in the post-Christian era is that fair, balanced, unbiased journalism means putting truth and error, morality and immorality, good and evil opinions on an equal basis. It is a doctrine and practice most worthy of Satan.
