Letter to the Editor: What's your opinion on road maintenance?

To the Editor:
Last year Allamakee County spent $900,000 for road rock. At the same time, Mr. Ridenour said that white line striping would cost $50,000 but it would be sufficient for two years. On March 2, Mr. Ridenour stated that white line striping would double the cost of striping, around $68,000. He did not say if that was for one year or two years. A Minnesota company three and a half hours away received the contract for the work. What’s your opinion?

Letter to the Editor: Deer herds managed to provide live targets

To the Editor:
If the deer are dying off from some disease, that would be the best thing that could happen to them. It would stop the “vehicle vs. deer” crashes that have killed some motorists and cyclists, and stop that invasion of armed strangers and vehicles stopped on the traveled portion of the roads, turning around and speeding back and forth every hunting season, and stop their shooting into property without permission, which endangers humans, pets and livestock. The hunting community thinks the above are worthy sacrifices for their game of killing, wounding and causing misery.
I remember a time when we didn’t have a “high deer population,” and we didn’t have the above hazards and misery. Those deer herds are managed in such a way as to have plenty of live targets.

Letter to the Editor: GOP is the party of war

The the Editor:
I see GOP Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa is still trying to crucify President Obama for a tragic shooting from a young illegal immigrant who Grassley said that the president let stay in this  country because he might have been born here. How very absurd, Obama didn’t know this man any more than Republican Chuck Grassley or any other member of the GOP party did.
Has Senator Grassley lost his mind and again forgotten what his party did for the invasion of Iraq and the torture of human beings, and that they are guilty of war crimes and he has done nothing about it? Let’s not forget, some of the GOP had a meeting on the first Inauguration night when President Obama was sworn in to make sure Obama and his administration failed.
