Caring for neighbors alive and well in North

Letter to the Editor:

The Land O’ Lakes community has an incredible history of taking care of the people that call the area home.  Recently, St. Albert’s Parish hosted a fundraising fish fry to assist Dan and Debbie Kauzlaric with medical and personal expenses associated with Dan’s cancer treatments.

Seeks more funding, grants for early childhood teachers

Letter to the Editor:

I am writing as a constituent to encourage you to support higher funding for early childhood education teacher wages.

I am a preschool teacher and
