Guest view: It’s up to all of us to care for Minnesota’s water
Tragically, in recent years, the quality of our water has deteriorated in many parts of our state. Too many lakes, rivers, streams, and ditches have become contaminated with potentially dangerous chemicals. In some communities, the surface and underground waters our citizens use for...

To the Editor: The $3 million mistake
When all was said and done, accepting the advice of legal counsel, the board voted to declare victory by accepting $150,000 from Springsted and leaving the taxpayers with the nearly original $3 million tax error. The question that is still unanswered is, “How did this happen?” Perhaps...

To the Editor:Start middle school process over again and do it right
Before you start a new building you should do a traffic flow study to see the impact of the additional traffic onto Washington Avenue. That wasn’t done. If you are driving on Washington Avenue when the high school lets out, you are backed up for blocks from the stop sign at 14th...

Guest Commentary: There’s too much secrecy in government
Most notably, of course, secrecy extends to national security issues. There are some government secrets that are necessary to protect, and a balance has to be struck between protecting national security and openness. But the presumption should be in favor of openness. Those who favor...

To the Editor: Cloquet, Scanlon merger not a good idea for now
As a citizen who attended the joint council meeting on whether to merge Cloquet and Scanlon, I was taken aback when Ehlers, which studied the possibility, strongly recommended it (“A tale of two cities: Should Cloquet and Scanlon become one?” In the March 17 issue of the Pine...
