Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor I was very pleased that President Trump announced our troops in Afghanistan would be brought home by Christmas. We have been there so many years, and to have an entire family together for that day would be a blessing. However, I watch CNN, FOX, MSNBC, and public television’s ...

Letter to the Editor

To the editor I am insulted to be called a racist. I have respect for all mankind regardless of color, race or sexual preference. Our family has both Native American and Black members, and I am proud of both. Even though I have never met Miss Blackcloud I think she is a fine, well educated ...

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 ...

Letter to the Editor

The insidious thing about racism is that it’s not always as blatant as one might expect. There’s this old idea that a racist is someone wearing a white hood burning a cross, or waving a Nazi flag while chanting “White Power!” Everyone can recognize these overt symbols of hate, but ...

Letter to the Editor

Wow! Talk about drinking the Democratic Kool-Aid. Deanna is parroting all the NYT, CNN, MSNBC regurgitating hourly their hate. Take lying. Who is counting? What is a lie? Please explain the lies. Deanna says “It has been said..”. See no facts just repeating the hate. I don’t know what ...

Letter to the Editor

Joyce Wiese’s dark picture of our neighboring Meskwaki Tribe, their buying of land and placing it in trust thus making it tax exempt, makes it appear as though the rest of us in Tama County are left holding the bag.    This is a gross over-simplification. Tribal members do pay their fair ...

Letter to the Editor

It seems that some think if people disagree with Trump it is because they hate him. That is probably true in some cases, but one can also disagree with Trump on differences in values. I dislike strongly the way Trump treats the military. I learned to respect our military at a very early age ...
