LETTER: Smith should debate Painter
We need a senator that has the courage to stand up to this corrupt administration, not one that also makes deals with Russian oligarchs — the PolyMet land-swap deal she orchestrated.

LETTER: Wrenshall School costs climbing
The question has to be asked: Why has our school got to the point it will take millions and millions to fix it? Who was in charge? Ask. If you don't want the status quo, call the school board and support those who voted "no," as they need the community support. If you're fine with...
