Letter to the Editor: It's time for a real revival

To the Editor:
The scandal with Planned Parenthood has been going on for some time. The videos are sickening, and so is the entire organization. Five hundred million, or a 1/2 billion, tax dollars given to Planned Parentood each year - a real pet of the liberals. It’s very much like the Veterans Administration, run by a bunch of crooks who cook the books to get a bigger bonus. We should never have had the VA, they should have given our vets a voucher to go to our local hospital where the waiting time is small and emergencies are taken care of promptly by a local doctor you know.

Letter to the Editor: Questioning the wisdom of a four-way stop

An open letter to the Allamakee County Board of Supervisors:
Last week I read in The Standard about the Board of Supervisors’ decision to make the intersection of Old Stage Road and Old Highway 9 a four-way stop. Initially it seemed a peculiar decision and on further reflection I am puzzled as to why the decision was made.

Letter to the Editor: Grateful for roadside help

To the Editor:
Like many New Yorkers, my worst fear looks like this: Find yourself driving on a rural road at night, far from any town, with little or no cell service and no houses around, when all of a sudden you collide with a deer.
This is exactly what happened to me on Sunday night while driving from Marquette to Waukon on Highway 76, but before I could panic, a car pulled over and a man and a woman got out to help me.
They calmed me down, moved the deer to the side of the road and taped up my bumper so that I could keep driving until I got to a place where I could spend the night. They even gave me their extra roll of duct tape just in case the bumper came loose again.
Unfortunately, in my panic, I didn’t get their names. I hope this message reaches them so that they know how grateful I am for their help.

Letter to the Editor: What you can do to help Camp Tahigwa

To the Editor:
Last week over 5,000 volunteer hours were put in to make Camptastic at Camp Tahigwa happen. The mantra “Camp must go on” was in each of these volunteers’ hearts.
In 2010, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois (GSEIWI) Council announced that traditional residential camp would no longer be held at Camp Tahigwa in Dorchester. A fine group of women and men decided that was not an option, thus Camptastic at Camp Tahigwa was born, offering girls of all ages a true overnight camp experience, complete with the famous climbing tower, jell-o fights, and sleeping under the stars.
