To those of you that don't know us, we are both retired volunteers from the Spring Valley Ambulance. We each reflect back with pride during our 25 years of volunteer service.  We read with interest the "cutting ties" article in last week’s Spring Valley Tribune.  First of all, we want to assure this community that your ambulance service is still intact and will be there for you in times of need.  Next, we wish to give you a bit of history regarding the ambulance "association."

  • Over the past few months, an increasing number of law enforcement officers across our nation have been targeted and even killed. A dangerous occupation has become even more so in some areas.

     
  • A young man from Germany used the Tribune (Dec. 24 issue, story on foreign exchange student at Kingsland) to tell everyone how he felt about being in the United States, Minnesota and the small town of Spring Valley.  I love Spring Valley, too.  I sort of have a feeling about what he is going through during this time of the year.

     
  • My husband, Daryl Jensen, is soon retiring from the Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department after 35 years in law enforcement and 10 years as sheriff, all served in Fillmore County.  
  • They say that LIFE is what happens when we are making other plans.... ditto DEATH.

     
  • Thanks for the wonderful story of the Frankford Grange.

     
  • On a recent Monday night in Brooklyn, five empty chairs stood on stage — one for each member of the Federal Communications Commission. A crowd had amassed in the room for a public hearing to send this message to the agency: Dont hurt the open Internet.

     
  • Your column about the Wykoff cannon brought back memories. 

     
  • This is an update on the efforts of the Kingsland Facilities Task Force to reach consensus on the present needs and future configuration of the Kingsland District. Please note this is not to be considered the official record of proceedings; rather it is a factual record of the discussions and findings to date from the notes and recollections of a task force member.

     
  • The soldiers who fought the Revolutionary War were our first veterans, the only cohort of U.S. warriors who took up arms to create rather than defend a country.

     
  • The members of American Legion Auxiliary Everett H. Hale Unit #68 would like to express our sincere appreciation for the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.

     
  • I have had a number of people ask me if they could write in my name for mayor of Wykoff. I do not want that to happen. I do not want my name written in. Instead, I encourage you  to vote for Jeremy Comstock.  
  • I attended the public forum at the Spring Valley VFW Tuesday, Sept. 30. It was a good place to hear the candidates. A lot of questions were asked that had been written down in advance but not all of them.

     
  • Soon we will go to the polls to select a new sheriff for Fillmore County. Sheriff Jensen is retiring at the end of this year after decades of great service to the citizens of our county. His decision to retire has left an open void to future leadership within the sheriff’s department. This concerns me because of the importance the office of county sheriff and the ongoing partnership the county commissioners have had with the sheriff’s department.

     
  • I would like to share our state Representative Greg Davids’ record of times he proposed and voted for property tax relief in our district.
