Orchids: To Chip Cravaack. Thank you for serving the Range so graciously, I’m sorry you were thrown into a very negative campaign! The fact that you had an “R” after your name for some reason means your evil! The Democrat for Life Party couldn’t stand the fact that you won. And to the writer from Embarrass, you should keep your mouth shut when you don’t have the facts! Super PACs pumped millions into Nolan’s campaign as did the local DFL Party We lost a good man and got a man who should be home with his grandkids enjoying retirement! Nolan, I will call you on everything you campaigned for. And orchids to Mr. Starkovich from Ely who saw Chip for the man not the party and exposed Mr. Anderson for his obvious selfish interests. (Submitted by Dean Lindberg of Virginia.)

Orchids: To Neil, assistant manager at Super One North, for courtesy and customer service above and beyond the call of duty, when I left behind a bag of groceries last week. He was professional and kind, as are all the employees there! Thanks for your help!

    One of the saddest O&O comment I've ever read was the onion to our "socialist" president from someone whose only income is SS and has no other income of any other kind. He/she doesn't seem to realize that with only SS and possibly Medicare keeping him/her going, he/she is just barely in the middle class and only one disaster, illness or accident, away from being one of the poor. In fact, at least 1/3 of people with only SS are in the poverty income level.

    He/she must have forgotten that GW Bush had a priority of privatizing SS and went around the country many times trying to convince seniors how great private SS accounts invested in the stock market would be. Suspicious seniors didn't buy it. Their skepticism was proven right after the financial meltdown and so many seniors' retirement accounts invested in the stock market took a bit hit or were gutted.

    The GOP have not been hiding that they view SS recipients as moochers, takers and pretend SS costs too much money even though it is a trust fund. At the same time, the ultra wealthy's tax rates are the lowest in decades and they have all kinds of ways to avoid paying even those taxes that the rest of us don't. Big corporations have had some of their biggest profits ever while getting all kinds of entitlements in gov't subsidies and tax breaks. Republican legislators want even more tax breaks for the wealthy on top of keeping the Bush tax cuts but they insist we can't afford SS, Medicare, etc. How this makes any fiscal or moral sense to Republican voters is mind boggling.

    Nolan hasn't even been sworn into office yet and already he is making plans that do not benefit the Range in any way, shape or form. I am very happy to say that I didn't vote for him and I refuse to take any of the blame for what is ahead of us. And I will keep saying "I told you so".
