Soucheray: Forgiveness, we learn, is a choice
In the book, "Forgiveness is a Choice," by Dr. Robert Enright, states that forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves. He says when we have been harmed in some way by someone, or a situation, it is our choice to hold on to the hurt and the anger we feel toward the other. We all know...

Letter to the editor: DFL tax plan will hurt more than just the rich
On Wednesday evening, April 24, 2013, while you were tucking your children into bed, Minnesota House Democrats passed a $2.6 billion dollar tax increase. This breaks down to $547 for every Minnesotan, and is the largest tax increase for Minnesota in 30 years. In short, Democrats...

Letter to the editor: Firefighters' efforts saved surrounding homes
I want to send a big thank you to all the firefighters that took part in controlling the Kingsfield Lane twin home fire. They worked hard to contain it to one twin home. This could have been much worse. Woodbury, Oakdale, Lake Elmo, Cottage Grove, Lower St. Croix fire departments...

Viewpoint: How much is too much for a DWI?
"What a party," you think as you drive yourself home. Suddenly the night sky is filled with flashing red and blue lights and you worry that you may be in trouble. Did you drink too much to be driving legally? DWI law confuses a lot of people. The name itself is confusing. DWI is...

Letter to the editor: Kent's bill would improve schools
Too frequently we read letters in these pages about all that is wrong with government. Today I want to write about something good that is being done by Sen. Susan Kent. She is fighting to see to it that kids get effective teachers. As a parent, (and now grandparent), I know the impact...

Letter to the editor: Marriages: is history best barometer?
Gerald Scherbel ("Gay marriage could lead to slippery slope", April 17) claims the only legitimate marriages are those which produce children the "natural" way. Who knew there was a fertility requirement for marriage in Minnesota? I guess adoptive parents have marriages which are...

Soucheray: Resiliency means balance in our lives
Many social scientists are interested in a phenomenon called "resiliency." Resiliency is experienced by most of us in how flexible or hardy we are, how pliant, tough or quick to recover we are from the difficulties we face.

Letter to the editor: Procreation-pedophilia argument is unsound
Mr. Scherbel added his two cents to the same sex marriage conversation in the latest Bulletin. Anyone that follows the letters to the editor may recognize my name and know that I have written before in defense of families like mine. I agree with Mr. Scherbel that what goes on behind...

Letter to the editor: Afton aimed to protect families all along
I read your editorial on the issue of mother-in-law apartments in Afton. When you write "In this day and age when health care becomes evermore costly and unwieldy, and families are forced to make hard decisions" you are precisely correct. The purpose of these discussions was to facilitate...

Our View: Take a bow, volunteers
This past week brought events that won't soon be forgotten. Unprecedented horror in the streets of Boston was followed by a seismic explosion in West, Texas. But before the smoke even cleared, we also saw the emergence of people charging in to help: volunteers. They were people who...

Resident's Viewpoint: Speak up against NRA's faulty logic
State Rep. Andrea Kieffer has said she's getting "tons" of emails on the gun control issue and that "most are very much in support of our Second Amendment rights." I understood that to mean they oppose tightening of gun control laws - from people she already agrees with. But polls...

Soucheray: Now's the time to establish a summer routine
The summer is nearly here, with only a mere six weeks until the kids are out of school for their three-month break. I can hear the gulp of parents who must take into account a change of schedules and all that this entails. If you have not begun to think about how you will manage these...

Letter to the editor: Kieffer's compassion absent in gay marriage debate
I attended the Woodbury Community Expo and was glad for the opportunity to speak with the women who represent us in the Legislature. My conversation with Rep. Kieffer was disquieting. I stood there as another Woodbury resident asked, "What is your feeling about gay marriage?" Kieffer's...
