Who is taking care of our children?
I have unique perspectives on the upcoming city elections. I am retired now after covering city government for about 30 years as a Globe reporter. During that time, I developed a pretty good grasp of how city government operates and what it takes to make it run well. That's one perspective.
Renewable energy development is critical to the vitality of rural Iowa, but the Worth County supervisors recently took a step backward. As executive director of the Iowa Conservative Energy Forum, I feel it’s important to give a voice to the farmers and landowners who may be too fearful of r…
To John Skipper,
Is fearmongering an acceptable tool to fight COVID-19?
Every Monday afternoon I turn down Fillmore Avenue en route to my 11-year-old daughter's piano lesson. And every Monday for the past couple months there is a flag that says "F$@k Biden."
Foreign ambassadors have their days filled with official meetings and events in the nation’s capital. Most of them live in the comfort of ornate residences in Washington, D.C., and are consumed by their duties. It’d be hard to convince any of them to leave their post, let alone get them to h…
Biden's inept State Department and military advisors left Americans and our allies in Afghanistan.
Friday, Sept. 17, my cat and best friend for over 10 years, Kolby, suffered a sudden and catastrophic health issue. I rushed him to a local veterinarian who had been Kolby’s caregiver all his life.
I read with great interest and concern, the article in Sunday’s Globe about NIACC and the Mason City High School affiliation with the organization; “Turning Point USA.”
Never before have I read such a bias "news" story as this one in your paper. "New organization at Mason City High School has roots in extremism."
We must do more to strengthen our power grid against an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) event. Such an event can result from an attack by terrorists or by another country (e.g. China may already have the capability--which it may use in an economic crisis,) or it can occur naturally. It could res…

This may not be the right place for an “atta boy,” but I would like to thank Brian Pauly, Mason City’s Superintendent of Recreation and Golf. I’m a former resident of Mason City and well aware of the fine facilities at Margaret MacNider Campground. Now that I am a full-time RVer and living o…
"Personally, I’m fully vaccinated, but let’s leave getting vaccinated to each individual and for those not choosing to get vaccinated to their own reasons (which many have been documented). No shaming is needed."
In regard to Mike Nelson's letter on Wednesday, August 25. Nope. Doing just great.
COVID infections and hospitalizations are increasing again in Iowa, including Cerro Gordo County. This is driven by the Delta variant, which is 2-3 times more infectious than previous strains.
In the letters on Aug. 25, Mike Nelson asked, “Hey Biden/Harris fans! Any voter remorse yet?”
In regard to the name calling and the insults and rudeness: people wonder why people can't get along.
The exoneration of the U.S. Capitol police officer involved in the death of Ashli Babbitt during the Jan. 6 insurrection proves once again that the only person responsible for her death is Ashli Babbitt herself. She was deceived, cheated and lied to by an evil man, and in so doing reaped the…
