Send a message to sugar company

To all the good folks of Fargo-Moorhead:

Are you willing to spend 45 cents for the good of our community and state? Here’s an idea.

Enough is enough. We have been reading about this fiasco with American Crystal Sugar Co. long enough. There probably isn’t a one of you who doesn’t know someone who is directly affected by this long-term labor dispute, or at least someone who knows someone. Furthermore, the entire community is affected socially and economically. This isn’t the way we Midwesterners treat one another.

Here’s the idea: Write a short note that may simply say, “Enough is enough. In the name of humanity, open the gate and negotiate.”

Mail it on tax day – April 16. Address it to American Crystal Sugar Co., 101 3rd St. N., Moorhead, MN 56560.

You may feel as I do: Something should be done, but I am helpless. But if 40,000 cards and letters were to drop on their desk in one or two days, someone might listen.

The sign of a mature person is someone who can admit they may be wrong sometimes.
