To the editor: After reading the article in the Record making comparisons between Trump and Nixon, then reading the letter to the editor in the Morris Tribune about borders, I would like to comment on both together. I voted for Trump, not because he "was" the perfect person for the job. I didn't vote for him for his marriage counselor ability, or that I thought he would act presidential. I'm not even convinced that he will act in my best interest concerning agriculture.
While discussion about repealing or revamping the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, swirls around Washington, D.C., a local health care leader says whatever happens in D.C. will impact Stevens County. ACA provides health care for 21 million people in the U.S. who were previously uninsured. For Stevens Community Medical Center that means fewer people using the emergency room for primary care needs, said SCMC Chief Executive Officer Jason Breuer. The end result is less unpaid debt for services provided.
To the editor:
Whether or not you are Trump supporter, the choice of Betsy DeVos as the nation's education secretary is difficult to stomach. While DeVos said in a Feb. 8 speech after her selection as education secretary that students come first and she will work to find common ground, we need to be suspicious of those words. Yes, we need to give her a chance now that she is leading one of the most important foundations of America, but if we really care about the future of education in the U.S., we need to be cautious and watchful of DeVos.
To the editor: It is very difficult to deny the existence of media bias in the face of so much media bias. What is inexcusable about this bias is the fact that it is so transparent and easily exposed, regardless of what Korrie Wenzel would have us believe. Much of the news we receive in the United States is free of charge and worth every penny. Finding the facts unfortunately requires a bit of work, but if we're going to put out the effort to generate an emotional
Cities have aging water lines and sewer lines that may need repair or replacing. Counties have county tile and open ditches in drainage systems in need of the same attention. Stevens County has a big ditch in need of attention in County Ditch 18 that runs through portions of Baker and Scott Townships.
The amount landowners pay to drain their fields of water in the Stevens County Ditch 18 will change but how much is yet to be determined. The Stevens County Board of Commissioners told about 12 landowners the benefits on the ditch system must be redetermined because petitions for repairs will cost more than the available money to do them. Benefits are the amount a landowner is assessed and pays each year for the ability to drain water into the ditch system. The benefits have been the same since the ditch was built in 1916.
