Safe and efficient roads are the most obvious example of what we expect from our government. But with road funding, it seems that sometimes the link between jobs, the economy and basic infrastructure is forgotten — often for many years at a time — by legislators.
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 the way it is, do nothing. One thing is certain: If we don't fix our school, we will lose it. Can we do it?
I am quite the cutie pie with my gorgeous orange tabby markings and extra toes on my front left foot. I arrived to Friends of Animals as a stray and I am a little over a year old.
The front-page story on threats of violence made on Facebook in the May 10 issue of the Pine Journal should have been headlined "Man charged in threats against Cloquet," rather than referring to threats against the school. The Pine Journal apologizes for any confusion.
Gotz, 20, of Hermantown, not only led his team in scoring, but he also led the entire league in scoring for all defensemen with 47 points (eight goals, 39 assists), while playing in all 60 regular season games.

When will we as a society stop praising shallow people's invincible power and poised figures? It isn't always what they do that is beautiful, but the looks they've been blessed with that allow them advantages they may not deserve. When will we praise people — in spite of their looks — for their personalities, talents, grit?
With the passing of National Park Week in April, I agree with Kate Lidfors Miller, the author of "National parks crumbling, need support" (Pine Journal, April 26), who claims our national parks deserve more recognition. They deserve this as well as the maintenance and funding Miller describes would be necessary in order to preserve Minnesota's gems.
