Letter to the editor: North Shore girls and coaches lauded

Letter to the editor: Nolan is selling out our waters, and Metsa is backing him up
From Carla Arneson, Ely Fast-tracking mining projects accomplish one thing: mining corporations have a better chance to hide the truth from the public. The companies, not the permitting process, are opaque and need transparency. Instead we have the predictability of corporate representatives...

Letter to the editor: Sulfide mining, why not? (Snark alert)
I read with interest the Lake County News-Chronicle's Nov. 1 issue, and was perplexed that both the Lake County DFL's committee and the Lake County News-Chronicle would be against Congressman Rick Nolan's visionary vote that clearly indicates his interest in streamlining nation-wide...

Letter to the editor: Opportunities to get involved in environmental decision making
Big decisions are being made these days. The decision of whether or not to engage in copper mining in Northeastern Minnesota will affect life on the North Shore for a long time to come. Similarly, pipeline expansions and creations set the course for decades ahead. It is easy to...

Letter to the editor: Memorial benches raise concerns
I would like to raise a concern regarding the proliferation of memorial benches and tables along the Two Harbors lake shore. Two years ago, a friend said it's beginning to look like a cemetery. That was before they recently sprouted like mushrooms. The city council members approved...
