Community memorial service for Jacob was ‘incredible event’

Mayor Rick Schultz, St. Joseph The Jacob Wetterling Memorial Service was simply spectacular from beginning to end. Please accept my gratitude for everyone who helped pull off this incredible event. I cannot possibly thank everyone in this note.

Council member clarifies her viewpoints

Amy Braig-Lindstrom, St. Joseph First, I want to thank the Newsleaders for, week after week, providing Sartell with a free, local newspaper. I would also like to specifically thank Dennis Dalman for his time and efforts in covering a wide variety of topics.

Thanks, Newsleaders, for thoughtful Wetterling coverage

Darlene Dingmann, St. Cloud I would like to thank Dennis Dalman for writing the article “Patty Wetterling says it’s time for healing.” Some of the coverage of Jacob’s abduction and how his life ended was very graphic.

Sartell student dresses for herself, not others

Mallory Daniels, Sartell On Friday, I was reading the Newsleader and got to the last page. I saw something titled “The Ten Commandments of the Perfect Student.” I’m starting high school soon and thought it might be fun to read. However, when I got to No. 8 on the list I was shocked. I had to read it twice to make sure […]
