Letter: You don’t want to miss ‘Annie’
To the Editor: I had the privilege of seeing “Annie” Thursday night at the Sheldon Theatre. I am amazed at the talent of the high school students in Red Wing – I have been for years. They staged a wonderful show. The singing, the dancing and the nuance they capture by portraying...

Letter: Bonding bill indicative of connectedness
To the Editor: Several weeks ago, Lt. Gov. Tina Smith visited the city of Dennison to see first hand our obsolete lift station and publicly pledged state support to replace it. In the grand scheme of things, we are just a small fish in the pond when it comes to state bonding requests....

Letter: Markings take away from Barn Bluff’s beauty
Flags, Prince symbol, or class year. This isn’t about what is painted on the bluff. It is about one individual — or possibly a group — deciding what should be painted on the bluff irrespective of the citizens of Red Wing. The government was formed to allow citizens to petition...

Contrary to popular belief, life doesn’t end when you turn 50. Our bodies don’t power down like a cell phone with a low battery. Our mind doesn’t begin to mothball pertinent knowledge. The work and accomplishments we have achieved do not cease to exist. Instead, once we reach...
