The school wants to permanently close Dayton Ave. SW, put the playground equipment in the street so they can use this space for buses. Please take a moment, drive around our community and observe the following: When Mid Central Federal Savings Bank needed additional parking, they removed the adjacent houses to the east for daily operations. When Wadena State Bank needed additional parking, they removed the adjacent houses to the south and west for daily operations.
My wife, Donna, and I went to the State Fair this year. We stayed in St. Paul and hailed a ride to the fairgrounds. Our driver chatted with us during the drive and eventually asked where we were from. "Wadena," we replied, "do you know where that is?" He said, "Yes, I drive through your town often on my way to visit a friend up north. Wadena has great entrance signs. I love the Art Deco design."
Thank you to all who donated and participated in our Veterans Park fundraiser! It was very successful and we thank you for your participation. David Ludovissie Veterans Park Committee
As a semi-retired high school teacher, I have been associated with adolescents for the past five decades. During that time I have seen a countless number of individuals who made bad lifestyle decisions in their youth and yet grew up to be mature, responsible and moral adults. Whatever Judge Kavanaugh May have done as a drunken teenager is a non-indicator of the person he is now. Jerry Miller Sebeka
