Thumbs up to Cloquet police officers, for doing their best at a challenging and sometimes disheartening job.

OUR VIEW: Think, and vote
We love the PolitiFact website (www.politifact.com) a fact-checking website run by editors and reporters from the Tampa Bay Times. PolitiFact rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others who speak up in American politics. They do this all the time, but especially during...

. We don’t want to weigh in on that argument here, but love that she took action by writing a letter to the editor and encouraging people to attend the meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Cloquet City Hall.

Another voice lost, but not forgotten
Mike Berglund shared part of his soul with the community he loved when he wrote his columns and stories, and made the Pine Journal a better paper in the process. He understood that it takes many voices to make a healthy community, and he was brave enough to put his thoughts out there...

Thumbs up to National Night Out. In some places it’s all about the neighborhood. In small towns like Mahtowa, the entire population can attend a potluck. It’s also been a citywide celebration in Cloquet for the past two years, sponsored by the Cloquet Police Department, Cloquet...

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...

FROM THE INTERN: The many benefits of books
When people think of summer, they often think of warm days, swimming at the lake, and grilling outside for dinner. What they don’t think of, however, is reading. Yet, the benefits of summer reading are so great that they will have people thinking again.

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.

FROM THE EDITOR: The great bathroom debate

Let’s hear it for the Wrendogs!
Certainly, there will be greater efficiencies at one site. However, there’s no arguing that a two-site solution as proposed in the petition — with Wrenshall and South Terrace as the two sites — also offers a number of positives.
