Your letters: Support Tobacco21
I am a recent graduate of New York Mills High School and I support Tobacco 21 because I have already felt the detrimental effects of the tobacco industry.

Your letters: Thanks for the help with the corn feed
A big thank you to all of you that turned out to help at the Corn Feed! I think this was the fastest the corn has ever been husked and prepared for cooking. A big thanks also to those that stayed and helped serve and also clean up afterwards. Robb Reed, Perham

Your letters: Kulp is the right person for District 8B
The Minnesota Way: Working together, over party lines, for the hardworking people of Minnesota. "The only thing that remains the same is change." Change is what we need in District 8B. Why change? Just look at the last legislative session. The Republicans placed party over the needs...

Your letters: Accept those with disabilities
I was so touched by a recent article I read about a talented Perham athlete and a classmate who is wheelchair bound. Their bond is truly amazing and gave me some hope. I have seen numerous Perham students with visible disabilities be included and welcomed creating social connections...

Your letters: Prevent new smokers by raising tobacco purchase age
We could save 30,000 Minnesota kids from becoming smokers over the next 15 years in one step — by raising the tobacco purchase age to 21. Thirty thousand Minnesota youth and young adults could start their adult lives without an expensive, deadly addiction. I hope we can all...

Your letters: Raise tobacco purchase age to 21
Our county commissioners are doing the right thing by considering an ordinance change that would raise the tobacco sale age to 21. Tobacco use continues to take a terrible toll in our community and throughout the state. Every year, more than 6,000 Minnesotans die from tobacco-related...

Your letters: Perham Police Chief should be Otter Tail Sheriff
After the three candidates for Sheriff gave their views on being the next Sheriff, the choice was so clear. The man that has 18 years in the present administration is so adamant in his beliefs that there is no bend in his operation, I feel.

Your Letters: Looking Back section brings back memories
We always enjoy the "Looking Back" section, especially last week when 20 years ago the MS Bike TRAM went through our area. It brought back memories of welcoming the riders, handing out juice, fruit and sandwiches. The most cherished memory was the feeling of "AWE" over so many supporting...

Your Letters: Can we trust our National intelligence services?
We have a very serious problem in the U.S. Do we trust our national intelligence services or don't we? The president repeatedly has favored Vladimir Putin (a known liar) over our national intelligence services. He has openly questioned the performance of our national intelligence...

Your letters: 9/11 monument maintenance disappointing
I was recently in your city and since I've been visiting there over the past 40 years, I have followed your growth. Your city has grown and appears to be very progressive. However, one visit to the little cemetery (I think it is referred to as the "village cemetery") I began to question...

Letter: Going solo on Iran nuclear agreement
A country is relatively stronger when it works with its allies. A country is relatively weaker when it works against or without its allies. The United States acted from a position of strength when it negotiated with Iran over nuclear weapons as it acted with our allies (Great Britain,...

Your Letters: Why believe the press about political change?
I don't know about you but I am tired of hearing about the blue wave that is coming in the 2018 midterm elections. This reminds me of the non stop press stories about the past election when Donald Trump was elected. We heard daily for three years that Hillary was a shoe-in. She could...

Having spent over 50 years involved in school transportation in Perham, it was with interest that I read the article in the March 1 issue of the Focus about school bus drivers. It was especially interesting to read about Dennis Zitzow's school bus driving career. Dennis and Marilyn...
