Guest Commentary: What does Congress need? Your attention!
But I choose those words — “we” and “produce” — carefully. Making it happen depends on you. As a voter, you have to go beyond asking about the candidates’ positions on substantive issues. In addition, you have to judge whether a candidate has the will and the capability...

OUR VIEW: Flood response is impressive, but we need to keep planning for the next one
Homes should not be rebuilt in flood plains, and cities need to work toward a goal of ensuring their sewage treatment systems will not be overwhelmed by rain and high waters, although we acknowledge that they cannot build for catastrophic events. Residents also need to embrace their...

To the Editor:Cloquet police officers doing excellent work
Another officer said she could see what a bright young man the offender was and that he should stay in school and get his diploma. That young man took her advice. We are lucky to have people like this serving in our community. Get to know them if you have the chance.

Thumbs up and down
Thumbs up to all the small towns that continue to celebrate the Fourth of July. It’s not easy, as the price of fireworks continues to climb, and people seem to resent paying taxes so cities cut all the fun stuff out of their budgets.
