Letter to the Editor: Why I would make a good mayor of Tama

Every now and then, a window of opportunity opens up that won't open for another 1,000 years. With the dismal Democratic Leadership of Senator Boulton, we're passing legalization of marijuana. The Meskwaki are poised via their vape industry to take full advantage of poisoning our kids. The ...

Letter to the Editor: Police must be accountable

We need law enforcement all the time. But every department should be purged of the "Chauvin" (the man who murdered Floyd) type of cop. There are people in every occupation that shouldn't be in their job. They're in law enforcement, too many in trucking, I even found two bear cats in ...

Letter to the Editor: Who will endorse Trump?

Every Iowa member of the U.S. House voted to keep McCarthy as speaker. It was Trump people who brought it to the floor to oust McCarthy. Will Governor Reynolds and Iowa Republicans endorse Trump in the Republican primaries for president? Me being a Democrat, I hope so. Fact: Trump ran twice ...

Letter to the Editor: Oldest Trick

Letter to the Editor: Save Cherry Lake

The city of Tama is in danger of losing a recreational gem. As our 100+ year-old Paper Mill closed, Cherry Lake no longer has a water supply. The Rec Trail has established a groomed trail all around the lake. The lake section completes our six miles of trails. There are picnic tables and ...

Letter to the Editor: Priorities

After the disastrous collapse of the apartment building in Davenport, our Republican Governor whined that our state hadn’t the financial capacity to deal with this collapse and made a plea to Joe Biden for federal financial aid to help with the resulting mayhem. Let’s look at past ...

Letter to the Editor: Hinson and Miller-Meeks wrong on Trump

I heard Ashley Hinson and Miller-Meeks knock president Biden and say how Donald Trump was a great president. When Trump was president, the Iowa State Fair was canceled, NCAA basketball tournament canceled, what sporting events we had were shortened when Trump was president. With Biden ...
