But the political party that calls itself "Republican" chose a presidential candidate whose father had been president. Democrats say we should call it the "notRepublican Party". A democracy is a country where the people rule, usually through elected representatives. But the "Democratic Party" insists that the not-elected Supreme Court should rule by declaring "unconstitutional" regardless of what the Constitution says. Is it the "notDemocratic Party"? When members of that party seek election, we should ask them if they want legislative power for not-elected people? Do they want to avoid controversial decisions so they can be elected forever? l ln Memoriam ] I I I| IN MEMORIAM In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Mark Todd Maas, who passed away 37 sad years ago, Aug. 1, 1965. As we loved him, so we miss him, In our memory he is near. Loved, remembered, longed for always, Bringing back a silent tear. We cannot, Lord, Thy purpose see, But all is well that's done by Thee. Sadly missed by his parents, brothers and sisters, Carl and Arlene Maas and family 27-1 IN MEMORIAM In loving memory of our mother Clara L. Johnson, who passed away one year ago on July 28, 2001. WE WILL SHARE ETERNITY My mother is a treasure That I carry in my heart, Her memory is safely kept within, All the love she spent on me Is held in sweet reserve.

Chad and Jill Swihart 27-1 and families The "notDemocratic Party" will "Bork" any judicial appointee who believes legislating is not the Court's job. Just before Hitler, "Adultery was openly extolled in countless films, novels and hit songs" in Germany. "Expressionism totally rejected standards." Weimar, A Cultural History" by Walter Laqueur. Hitler proclaimed himself a "strong man" to prevent destruction of Germany from within. When Russians were subdued by Lenin's "free sex", Lenin proclaimed "freedom of sex" instead. Free sex was destroying Russia. Do "liberals" insist on legislation by courts for establishing abortion-on-demand to protect free sex? Without God or standards of conduct, a people unable to rule themselves will be ruled by a "strong man", a Hitler or a Stalin "man of steel". Wesley Olson Box 142 Clinton MN 56225 To the Editor: My name is Joann Marie Jones. As a child I was born here in Ortonville. Growing up I swam daily in the Big Stone Lake-from the pier. Played in the sand on the beach. Now I come back after 50 years, to a mess that shouldn't be. The peer is covered in bird droppings so deep. I request the Mayor of Ortonville, please take a walk down and crawl thru on your hands and knees, if you can, thru bird droppings so deep you'd be sick. Then try to swim in the water if you can get to it, thru the sea weed thick over your knees. I want a slide and sand there in the water in two weeks. Fully loaded beach with clean deep sand. Safe enough so you and your entire family can swim there. Signed Joann Hanson Ortonville Too late to classify I I II HELP WANTED at Pioneer Meat Market. Beef cutting and butchering.
