Reader Opinion: Weed
Kudos to Chief Eric Klang for speaking out about smoking pot. We can make a food manufacturer throw out millions of dollars of food if it supposedly has some contaminate in it or anything that wasn't on the label and I'm not against that if it has the potential to harm someone. But...

Reader Opinion: Here’s the big deal about marijuana use
Marijuana - what’s the big deal? I feel duty-bound to share a disturbing trend I’m seeing with marijuana use among our high school students. These kids come from every type of home - geeks, jocks, burnouts and even the brainiacs. These aren’t kids from troubled homes either;...

Reader Opinion: Klang's bid for sheriff
Pequot Lakes Police Chief Eric Klang has served in law enforcement for a total of 25 years — as police chief since 2011 and as county sheriff from 2003-07. I feel his background and training, communication skills, and hands-on experience has prepared him represent Crow Wing...

Reader Opinion: Klang is about collaboration
As a business owner in a neighboring county, we need to know that every effort is being made for sheriff's departments to work together to provide 24/7 coverage in this entire area as well as assist and back each other up when one or the other may not be available. As a net-worker...

Reader Opinion: Klang´s FBI Academy training
The "West Point of Law Enforcement" was where my candidate for sheriff was appointed, accepted, completed and graduated from in December of 2017. The FBI Academy has been recognized as the highest level of law enforcement training in the world. In our rapidly changing society, it's...

Reader Opinion: Klang has the experience
I should like to write in support of Eric Klang for sheriff of Crow Wing County. His experience as both chief of police in Pequot Lakes and former sheriff is impressive, but an even more compelling reason to vote for him is his educational background in law enforcement and particularly...

Reader Opinion: We want Klang
For 15-plus years, we have had the best neighbors with Eric Klang and his family. Eric has been readily available when we needed assistance but never more so than after the storms of 2015 and 2016 on Round Lake. We were totally overwhelmed by the damage done to the trees on our...
