Letters to the Editor
Read this week's letters to the editor in the July 9 edition of the Kossuth County Advance:

To the editor:
The Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) is proposing the use of eminent domain with wind and solar energy. Eminent domain is the right of a government to expropriate private property for public use. This means even if you do not give a wind developer or utility company access to your land, the IUB could (according to this proposal) still run transmission lines through your property because they claim wind energy is a “public utility.” See the rest in our print edition.

I appreciated Becky Grandgenett’s letter, “Maybe we should be singing this,” especially the part: “let it begin with me.” Let it begin with me! See the rest in our print edition.
