Two Harveys Among Us

By Peter Molenaar Almost everyone in the Phillips Community knows something about Hurricane Harvey and associates.  Not as many are acquainted with Harvey Winje, editor of the Alley Newspaper.  So sad. Truth to tell, Harvey (the hurricane) is not a totally bad sort of being.  Actually, Mother Earth deploys hurricanes to flush excess heat from [...]

Frank Reflections: White Supremacy is monumental in scope and statuary

BY FRANK ERICKSON White Supremacy is an amazing thing!  Why was Robert E. Lee a free man after the Civil War? He took up arms against the United States government and killed over 100,000 American, yet he is treated like a rock star and is emboldened with statues all over the South. We now have eight Somali-American men from Minneapolis who [...]

Confederate General Robert E. Lee advised no Statuary for fear of war’s sores kept open

According to historian Jonathan Horn, Lee was often consulted in his lifetime about proposals to erect monuments to Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson and others.

By Peter Molenaar Visits to the Lake Street YWCA have become familiar to me, in the aftermath of thirty-five years hard labor at Smith Foundry.  However, when worn ankles dictate, treadmills and elipticals won’t do.  It is from the vantage of a stationary bike that I am allowed to discreetly observe. As for aerobics, evidently there are [...]

Frank Reflections: A Good Deed: Deed Hiawatha Golf Course back to Hiawatha’s descendants!

Frank Reflections: A Good Deed: Deed Hiawatha Golf Course back to Hiawatha’s descendants!

BY FRANK ERICKSON In regards to what should be done with the land known as Hiawatha Golf Course at 4553 Longfellow Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55407: give it back to Hiawatha! When an opportunity like this presents itself, it needs to be embraced and the right thing done! Giving the land back to its rightful owners is the right thing to do.  Giving [...]

Cultivating Heavy Soil

Cultivating Heavy Soil

By Peter Molenaar Transforming the USA along socialist lines is like propagating a garden in heavy soil.  Dense soils tend to impede germination and root development.  Yet, when properly conditioned, a “clay soil” is the most fertile and will produce glorious results. Marxism teaches that external factors are the conditions of change, [...]
