Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor: As President of the Louise & Lucile Hink-Tama Library Board, I was shocked to hear that the Tama City Council voted to slash the Library Budget by $50,000. I know many of you felt the same way. I had no idea something like this was being considered as the agenda item stated ...

Letter to the Editor

What qualities do I expect from my president? One who does not turn service departments like the CDC and the FBI into political arenas. One who doesn’t resort to dirty tricks (or help from other countries) to win an election. One who will preserve Medicare and Social Security, not destroy ...

Letter to the Editor

The Future? It is in the 3rd Month of Harris-Biden winning the election along with taking the House and the Senate. Six seats were added to the SCOTUS. Amy Klobuchar was named Chief Justice by a 10-5 ruling. The 2nd Amendment was replaced by a revised 2nd Amendment. Beto O’Rourke was ...

Letter to the Editor

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor I read Joyce Wiese’s letter regarding Christina Blackcloud’s candidacy for House District 72, and the reasoning she stated that we should not be voting for her. If I follow her train of thought, her concern is that Christina is native, and thus more likely to represent her ...

Letter to the Editor

On October 2nd, the Tama-Toledo News published a letter to the editor written by Joyce Wiese. Ms. Wiese implied I would not represent our community well because I’m a Native American woman. Thank you, Joyce, for providing me this opportunity to educate. I’d like to set the record ...

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor: I don’t intend to address the theoretical, assumption-riddled letter to the editor from Friday Oct. 2nd pleading for you to not vote for Christina Blackcloud. It was a poor representation of a political campaign riddled with racist bias. Instead I will tell you why I did ...
