Guest Commentary: Parting thoughts on high school sports
Life-time bonding was another great result. The scholar-athlete mentality and the sound mind/healthy body dichotomy students develop help them grow up to become strong, respectful leaders in their communities. The Bad: Verbal disrespect should never have a place in educational ...

WRIGHT-CROMWELL NEWS: Oct. 5 2017
I'm sure some of you have seen the article in the latest Lake Country Power newsletter about me and my growing up years in the area. Well, one of the teachers from Floodwood posted that article on the main hall bulletin board, so when I subbed in their school, there were a few kids...

Slices of Life: Home delivery is a mixed bag
And I'm not sure how I survived prior to having the find my family app at my fingertips. But retailers are attempting to influence us in a new way (or at least new for me). They want us to purchase our groceries online.

Our View: Thumbs up, thumbs down
Thumbs up to the students and staff at the Cloquet Area Alternative Education Program and their partners in Restorative Practices. They really are changing the world with their circles: teaching kids how to own their mistakes and move on, how to relate to one another and their teachers,...

GUEST COMMENTARY: Fair, not free, trade
But many of our fundamental American values such as freedom of speech, the right to elect our leaders fairly and competitively, and the right to organize labor unions are not honored by political systems in other countries. And herein lies the problem with "free" trade. A country...
