I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how moved I was Sunday when I went down by the river and by Riverside Park, auditorium, etc., and how clean it was, the RAGBRAI bike riders are respectful and never left any messes or garbage anywhere I looked. A very big shout out to you a…

THE MINI: I am shocked to read that State Rep. J.D. Scholten didn't attend the vote on the six-week abortion ban last week. He campaigned for years about making a difference but when we needed him, he was absent. He is a terrible disappointment. -- Morgan Gray, Sioux City

"There is no question, abortion is a very controversial subject. I have chatted with anti abortion friends and family, and know there is absolutely and positively no reasoning or negotiating with them, NONE. I have also visited with friends and family who support a woman’s right to choose. They seem to be more reasonable ..."

Letter to the Sioux City Journal: Not a few Repubs live in their small world of fantasy and fascism: That Trump won the 2020 election; meanwhile, they embrace the “Stop the Steal” mantra. Outlandish conspiracy theories percolate like a witches’ brew.
