Editorial: The times indeed are changing
Bob Dylan never actually spent hard time inside “the walls of Red Wing,” although his song by that name made people wonder. In fact, some Red Wing residents declined to believe former Warden Otis Zanders when, while making his round of retirement speeches, he stated Minnesota’s...

Viewpoint: Consider Nongame Wildlife Program in season of giving
The birds have mostly flown south, the butterflies are cocooned until spring, and the turtles have settled in for a long winter nap. But for the biologists who work with these species, December is a busy time of analyzing research data, writing reports and getting ready for next year's...

Editorial: Strength grew out of 'infamy'
Japan attacked Pearl Harbor 75 years ago today, propelling a previously reluctant United States into the thick of World War II. The surprise attack at the U.S. naval base in Hawaii (which was not a state at the time) killed more than 2,400 people, injured another 1,280, and had young...

Letter: Meeting appears to be unadulterated Xcel promotion
A "community meeting" has been announced for 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, in the Red Wing Public Library. This appears to be a promotional meeting for the garbage incinerator ash mining project that the Red Wing Public Works Department is pushing along with Xcel Energy. An announcement...

Viewpoint: When we see un-American behavior, let's push back
Viewpoint Those of us who regarded Donald Trump's election as an unmitigated disaster could only hope that his campaign histrionics would give way to a reality in which he did as he stated he would: surrounded himself with the best and brightest advisers he could.

Column: Charitable donations enrich giving season
There are two numbers I've been reflecting on this month: $2.1 billion and $373.3 billion. One of these is the total amount raised by the Trump and Clinton campaigns in the last election cycle. One is the amount of charitable contributions during 2015, a record-setting year. Can you...

Editorial: State your case through Truth-in-Taxation
The Minnesota Department of Revenue estimates that property taxes could climb $344.3 million statewide in 2017. That would amount to a 3.8 percent increase over 2016. That projected increase is contingent on each and every local government across the state approving the preliminary...

Letter: If you can't get around it, take a driving class
For the last 16 years I've taught the state's Motorcycle Safety classes throughout the Twin Cities and outstate Minnesota. I am not a "native Minnesotan," so I am still entertained by Minnesota driving "skills." Merging is as alien a concept in this state as parallel parking is to...

Column: Talk with your friends, family about a mother's thankfulness in tragedy
