    Concerning Veteran’s VFW Monument:
    My wife Lori and I were residents of the City of Belle Plaine for 17 years and we had the good fortune of making friends with many fine people in the community. The friendships are still in place; we are pleased to say.

    Like many (the many being evidenced by the public outcry that led to its return) I was disappointed to see the cross removed from the Belle Plaine Veterans Memorial. I wanted to express just how happy I was to see how quickly the city responded to the Defend Veterans Park proposal as well as to explain exactly why this means so much to me as the mother of two veteran sailors, niece of a fallen WWII soldier and a friend to many other veterans.

    I hope President Donald Trump brings a renewed spirit of morality to America. But since honesty is a primary principle of moral behavior, I’m disheartened by his first news conference as President-Elect. Fact-checking organizations found a number of his statements to be questionable or out-right false.

    I would like to express my gratitude to the people of Belle Plaine for re-electing me to my sixth term on the city council. I am looking forward to working with Chris Meyer, Ben Stier, Paul Chard, and Theresa McDaniel on issues of economic development and enhancing our quality of life. I would also like to express my gratitude to outgoing council members Henry Pressley, Mike Pingalore, and Gary Trost. They have dedicated years of their lives to Belle Plaine and we should all be proud of their service.
            Sincerely,
            Cary Coop
    Member,
    Belle Plaine City Council

    My side won last week. Not in the Tuesday election but on Thursday when Obama received Trump at the White House. Obama demonstrated how this country can heal. Trump was received with hospitality and grace. Radical hospitality is the spiritual practice we are most in need of. Grace is absolutely rare in my world. If the broken heart of this world is to be healed we must behave exactly as the now soon-to-be-ex-president did on Thursday. Practice hospitality to all we meet as we were taught by our Savior. Live a life as grace full as we can manage.

    Disease or Symptom
    A friend began a conversation by naming the presidential candidates after unpleasant diseases. I don't think the candidates are a disease. I think they are a symptom of the of the disease we are suffering from.

    At this point, the Presidential election of 2016 is Donald Trump’s to lose.

    As leaders negotiate, “purple” members look for points of unity.
    While we may see tough talk between Republican and Democratic Party leaders during the last few weeks of the legislative session, members of the Minnesota Senate’s Purple Caucus have a different philosophy.

    I want to take a minute and urge all member owners of the Minnesota Valley Cooperative who live in District 3 to re elect Jim Connelly. I served on the MVEC Board for 30 years, retiring 3 years ago.

    I’m writing out of frustration with Blakeley Townships’ seemingly lack of action.
