LETTER: Gateway-inspired rebellion starts on 4th Street
On Oct. 15, at Oak Meadows Senior Living in Oakdale, a large group of citizens from Fourth Street in Oakdale rose up and rebelled against plans by Gateway Corridor proponents to destroy their beautiful residential street and neighborhood by jamming down their throats a dedicated-bus-lane...

LETTER: Gateway process consists of Delphi and Charrette delusions
The Commissioner’s Viewpoint letter in the Sept. 2, 2015, Woodbury Bulletin that the Gateway Corridor project is moving forward is told self delusion. The very design and forecasting methods which have constituted the process and basis for the Gateway project now leave this project...

LETTER: Gateway Corridor transit won’t drive growth

Letter: 'Tehran vs. St. Paul' response
Last week, Bob Tatreau compared the recent elections in Iran to Minnesota's 2008 elections. (Bulletin, Letters, June 24.) Unfortunately, Mr. Tatreau relies on extraordinarily flawed analysis done by the Minnesota Majority, a right wing, conservative political organization, to make...

Letter: Tehran vs. St. Paul
Most of us have likely seen the news images of protesters in Iran carrying signs saying things like, "Where's my vote?" and "Why wasn't my vote counted?", etc. Tehran is a long way -- 5,000-plus miles -- from St.

Letter: $23.1 Trillion with a capital 'T'
Recently, the unemployment rate in Duluth, Minn. hit 10 percent. The report of gross domestic product for the last quarter showed a decline of 6.3 percent -- a very bad economic indicator. Today Chrysler is taken over by the U.S. government and essentially given to the United Auto...

Letter: Multi-faceted approach needed
The "Democrat" [sic] Party, according to Bob Tatreau (Letters, Bulletin, Aug. 20), is committing "energy suicide." Dr. Tatreau advocates more drilling, more refineries and more nuclear power, with a particular emphasis on nuclear generators which, he claims, the Democrats are denying...

Letter: His agenda insults her intelligence
I'm not surprised that Mr. Tatreau is amazed by what he refers to as "the liberal Democrat mind" (Letters, Bulletin, Aug. 20) as I am always puzzled by his mind as well. But possibly he, too, has always been that way. So far as I can tell, we don't have a shortage of oil. Nobody's...

Letter: Reality check: energy suicide
I feel there's a surreal atmosphere, the twilight zone emotions, that the unreality of the Democrat Congress is bringing to our nation with its policy of energy suicide. It seems Democrats in the United States Congress believe that meaningful energy supplies are going to be magically...

Letter: Tatreau responds to responses
Thanks to the letter writer (Bulletin, March 26) for accepting my apology. To the other letter writer, you raised the issue of representation. Indeed, that is the salient issue -- representation.

Letter: ...and a second one with a similar view
Note to Mr. Tatreau (March 19 letter): Not that I see any relationship between one's ancestry and concern about our roads and bridges, but my birth name is Norwegian and I have nary a spot of English blood. Apology accepted, unless, of course you wish to bash Norwegians also. Carol...
