Letters to the Editor

On October 10 the St. Joseph News & Press published an article concerning Madison County Iowa. It seems that this is another county under siege by the wind turbine developers. The article reported that their county health board had passed a resolution calling for wind turbines to sit at least 1...
Fellow Americans, In 1965, the late great radio personality Paul Harvey warned America in a radio broadcast, entitled, "Freedom to Chains." The full transcript of his broadcast is too long to post here, but can be seen on YouTube.  Even though I shortened it up a bit, I'm sure you will enjoy it...
Dear Director Pauley, Your migratory bird hunting survey does not apply to my area in DeKalb County. The answer to each question suggests there is uniform opportunity to hunt across this state.

Last Thursday people from at least four counties attended an educational meeting on wind energy.  This outstanding meeting was held in Cameron and was sponsored by the Concerned Citizens of both Clinton and DeKalb Counties.
