The letter writer is a bit off base and needs to do some fact checking. GM and Ford are not building plants in China. They sell cars to China. Look it up. Most of these 'facts' are items he's picking up off of FOX news or Facebook.

Citizen1 commented on North Iowans to receive ag award

Congratulations to an outstanding couple! They are leaders in sustainable, organic farming and they deserve the award. It makes all the difference knowing where one's food comes from.

I believe the 'clear message' that Iowa is giving Mr. Vander Plaats is to perhaps move to Louisiana and tell people in that state how to live their lives and how to vote.

Yes, parking can be a challenge around downtown...as it is in many cities. Perhaps the Manor should look into leasing extra space for their residents and guests. And please don't pick on the hotel. Part of the Vision Iowa grant was to provide for parking for the hotel; which is directly in f…

What selective memories Republican apologists on this site have. Pres. George HW Bush-remember him? And his no new taxes pledge? Well he raised taxes and lost the election. So if you really want to see some change coming--let's raise taxes to the level they were when Clinton was President...…

Christie Vilsack is not ducking the issues. She's the first one in 10 years to actually confront Steve King with his record and he is, quite frankly, running scared. He woke up when he realized she had raised $1 million to challenge him. Read the other letters around yours and realize that R…

Ruth I appreciate your right to express and opinion; but once again it's full of stories made up of untruths or half truths (the old Karl Rove trick) that have been repeated and printed over and over. Muslim Brotherhood? Please give us all a break. And the "some say' source is old and w…

This makes me sick. Why can't we have art around the city to look at? Whether you agree or not with the expenditure...it's art that is up for public viewing and should be left alone. Saying we should have been concerned or it's just a matter of 'when' is a cop out. We shouldn't have to be af…

jhood...People always bring up 'Greece'. Well Greece is in trouble because it is a point of honor in that country not to pay taxes. If everyone there paid taxes they would not be in such a mess. And if Romney and his ilk paid their fair percentage of taxes like everyone else, we would not ha…
