To the Editor: Council needs to vote ‘no’ on landfill proposals
The landfill issue now goes before the Cloquet City Council at the Feb. 7 meeting. Call Mayor Dave Hallback and your councilors to let them know the landfill changes are not what the Hilltop neighbors want, and it is not in the best interests of Cloquet.

To the Editor: Standoff between clinic, insurance company is bad for everyone

Guest Commentary: Can the media hold politicians accountable?
Because journalists play a crucial role in our representative democracy’s health. Citizens cannot act responsibly if they’re kept in the dark about public affairs. And it’s the media’s role to make sure that does not happen.

FROM THE EDITOR: Make the world a better place — read the newspaper
