Letter: Forget airport, Leavenworth County
August 11, 2011
To the editor: I found it refreshing to see that the Leavenworth County Commission has done everything possible to help hold down the mill levy increase for 2012 by eliminating what it calls things too expensive to pay for.
Letter to the editor: Don’t step on others’ rights
July 20, 2011
I saw this on Facebook and I know that not everyone looks at that, so I wanted to share this with you:
Letter: Kansas shouldn’t accept grant money through health care reform act
June 14, 2011
The Governor is overseeing the voluntary implementation of Obama Care in Kansas despite his campaign promise to fight what he has described as an “un-Constitutional”, “socialism” which will “destroy the Kansas budget” and ruin the private insurance industry.
Letter to the editor: Leavenworth County airport again would be wrong move
June 1, 2011
Having been involved in the defeat of two previous attempts to build a Leavenworth County airport, I reluctantly join the fight once more — and my position opposing it has not changed.
Letter to the editor: Remembering Rep. Fund
May 10, 2011
May 2 was Day 4 of the Legislative Wrap-Up Session.
Letter to the editor: Community Service Day lauded by residents
May 10, 2011
To the teacher, Jennifer, and the high school students that came to work mowing, cleaning up the weeds, trimming, putting up a new flagpole holder, carrying the trash bags to the curbside and doing anything we had for them to do on the community work day for the high school students and the teachers: We so greatly appreciate their work.

Letter to the editor: Longtime Tonganoxie resident concerned about bond issue
February 9, 2011
My feeling is that the City Council is making an attempt to control costs and expenditures — current and future. Good for them. The fall elections were a shot across the bow by demanding elected officials reign in the out-of-control spending that’s been going on for years.
Letter: Concerns about fitness club closing in Tonganoxie
January 13, 2011
Editor’s note: A story on page 1 addresses the future of the fitness center in Tonganoxie, as well as information regarding reimbursing and crediting membership fees. I was surprised and disappointed when I learned Unlimited Fitness Center was closing at the end of December.
Letter: Kansas not following federal model for judicial selection
October 26, 2010
I recently received a letter asking me to oppose the election of judges. What does a mailer like this cost? Who has that kind of money and why would they want to preserve the status quo?
Letter: Citizen opposes altering current district judge selection format
October 12, 2010
I am opposed to the election of district judges. I don’t know of any reason to change the system. I remember when we used to elect them. It takes too much money and too much time campaigning, instead of judging.
To the editor: City officials’ computer audit should be conducted
September 8, 2010
After being to a few city council meetings, listening, as well and reading in the local paper about our possible misuse of city computers, I think I have an easy solution to the problem.
Letter to the editor: Cycilists’ usage on County Road 5 should be addressed
July 7, 2010
Bicycle riders pose a danger on County Road 5. Bike lanes need to be made for them, or they need to find another route.
Letter: Humane Society not anti-farmers
April 20, 2010
In a column in the April 14 edition of The Mirror, John Schlageck, a communications and public relations professional for Kansas Farm Bureau, incorrectly stated the mission of the Humane Society of the United States.
