Dodge’s column interesting

To the Editor: RE: May 12, 2022 Darrell Dodge Column. I was glad to read this column “Wading into Roe”. It presented some interesting points that no one seems to address. I am very much for women’s control over their own bodies and choices. I totally agree with men (and women) being held accountable after…

Give lamb a try

To the editor: Just a thought… Jesus said in Mathew 12:25, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.” If the elephant or donkey can’t figure it out, maybe we should give the Lamb a try. Just a thought! G. Bullock Ellston

Racially motivated

To the editor: Apparently, Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is upset because people believe that she is “angry, or crazy, or unintelligent”. [Of course, she blames the media]. I would suggest that she consider the words of former Diagonal and Mount Ayr Community School coach and teacher O.C. “Pop” Varner. My husband, Karl Gepner, said…

Hillary in a cesspool

To the editor: Hillary is floating in the cesspool she created with only her head showing! She paid 100 million dollars for opposition research on Donald Trump. Even with the CIA, FBI, NSA, BVD’s and very favorable, favoring news coverage she still lost. The Clinton’s may have to lay low for a while. I suggest…

Joe’s border disorder

To the editor: The honorable Alejandro “eyebrows” Mayor has said “President Trump left the southern border in terrible condition! This lie has been told so much even some Iowan’s are believing it! He should have been asked, in the last 14 months what have you done to improve it? A lie told enough is sometimes…

Responding to silliness

To the editor: In response to last week’s letter to the editor from Kay Sickels Mosier, all I need to say is, thank you and AMEN!!! I would also like to respond to Mary Katherine Gepner and her “Conspiracy nut?” letter in last week’s paper. So, as we watch the systematic and deliberate destruction of…

Conspiracy nut?

To the editor: To fans of Fox News: Has Tucker Carlson Tonight host and Kremlin TV favorite Tucker Carlson gone completely off his “conspiracy theory” nut? In a viral clip Carlson spoke to Andrew McGovern–billed as a fitness professional about supposed ways men could increase their testosterone levels. McGovern, a personal trainer at LifeTime Inc…

Fortunate for Gepner

To the editor: Your community is fortunate to have a librarian, Mary Kathryn Gepner, willing to re-educate us all when it comes to war history. Her Letter to the Editor in the April 7, 2022 edition was a shocker for me. My father served in WWII and much of the history I know about those…

Trailer parks good idea

To the editor: Darrell Dodge’s April 14 column proposing city owned trailer parks as a solution to finding affordable housing in Mount Ayr is far from “Idle Chatter” and is a thoughtful and timely idea to be taken up right away. With the pandemic receding and people returning to city jobs and with interest rates…
