Letter: Republican senators walk out on Minnesotans

I firmly believe that all Minnesotans deserve a state government that meets the needs of its people. I am very angry with Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller and Senator Carla Nelson, who just walked out and went home before the deal was done. The Rochester Public School District is facing a $23 million deficit for next year and Senator Nelson, who has taught special education, just walked away. That is unbelievable and irresponsible!

My expectation is that they will return to St. Paul soon and finish this deal. Our children, youth, and teachers are counting on you.

The first “paid” rounds of golf occurred on May 8, 1927 and I hope it continues in operation as an 18-hole course for another 100 years. My review of the report prepared by National Golf Foundation (NGF) on the city golf courses noted no justification to reduce it to a nine-hole course or to even consider closing the Soldiers Golf Course.
After my review of the 136-page report on the city-owned golf courses prepared by National Golf Foundation (NGF), I note no justification to reduce the number of golf holes or to consider closing Soldiers Golf Course.
This letter is in response to a letter written by Craig Martens published in the June 28 edition of the Post Bulletin. I have a point of clarification to his last paragraph. In 1926, Dr. Graham did NOT give this land to the City of Rochester. It is a fact, however, that he did own the land but it was purchased by the American Legion Post 92 of Rochester in 1924 from Dr. Christopher Graham.
Minnesota has a multi-billion-dollar surplus. Minnesota residents need help.
