thumbs up, thumbs down
Thumbs down to the "you're either with us or against us" attitude. Life is more complicated than that, and just because we report unflattering yet verified information about the Cloquet Police Department, doesn't mean we're "against" the police department or its officers. And just...

To the Editor: We have skin in the game
We are all connected, but many people can only see their position at this time. When you take a position on an issue and support it, even though the facts do not support it, I suppose it is a game. You get the "deer in the headlights" look when an elder says to your face they will...

To the Editor:When it comes to voting, get informed
The hallmark of a democratic society is a strong public education system. An educated public was the reason the United States made education mandatory in the first place. The founders of our country didn't want a bunch of knuckleheads at the ballot box, so they decided to educate...
