Could snowmobilers show a little consideration and stop throwing snow back onto our driveways? And maybe give us a little time to shovel our driveways before they pack it down so hard we have to break it with an iron bar.
Starving the beast
When you "starve the beast" the beast can't plow the roads.
A thank you!
One reads so many negative letters in Vox Pop. This isn't one. I want to thank the two young men who sprang from their vehicles to shovel me, literally, with their hands, out of the snowbank I drove into trying to get off the highway to clean my icy windshield. All I could think of was the predicament I was in - tow truck, etc. There are lots of good people out there. Two of them were there on Jan. 3. My grateful appreciation to you both with best wishes for good luck and happiness in the year to come.
To Brainerd City Council president
I'm watching the Brainerd City Council meeting on TV and my big question is who really was elected council president, Kevin Goedker or Bob Olson?
Don't blame Koering
The writer of the recent "Totally ridiculous" Vox Pop statement seems confused. Sen. Paul Koering and the other legislators in St. Paul only have control over the salaries of state government employees. The state is facing a huge shortfall and his idea of not raising taxes and freezing wages for state employees whose contracts are still being negotiated is just one way of fixing the shortfall. Don't confuse Koering's statement with the actions of the Crow Wing County commissioners. County commissioners are responsible for the salaries of county employees; city governments are responsible for the salaries of city employees.
