Editorial: Transportation must be priority for Minnesota
An opinion of the Duluth News Tribune A year or so ago, lawmakers and pretty much everyone else in St. Paul were buzzing about transportation funding. Our bridges and highways were crumbling. A long-term solution was needed. This was the year to finally get it done, to finally find...

Editorial: States taxes bubbling up
“Lots of people fret about how much they have to pay Uncle Sam, but he’s not the only tax man you have to worry about: Your state can squeeze you for plenty of taxes, too.” So Kiplinger says by way of introducing the finance publication’s annual list of most and least tax-friendly...

Editorial: State frozen in political dysfunction
An opinion of The Forum: St. Paul seems to be holding its customary winter celebration in August. The state Capitol remains frozen in dysfunction as Gov. Mark Dayton and the legislative leaders of both parties continue their slow-motion – glacial – feud over the tax and bonding...

Editorial: A fair week for Goodhue and Pierce counties
As nice as it would be to have the Goodhue County and Pierce County fairs fall on different weeks, most years they compete for attendees. That’s not entirely a bad thing, given the healthy air of competition that’s part and parcel of these rites of summer. People who prefer the...

Editorial: Unified? Nope
Democrats are trying to tout unity this week, but the powers that be — or, in this case, the powers that were — actually have proven that the party is no more unified than the Republicans when it comes to their presidential nominee. Look no further than the ouster of Debbie Wasserman...

Editorial: Pray for peace
Dear God, Your servants will gather Sunday morning in Central Park to worship, to sing and to pray. While this pleasant summer ritual celebrates outdoor beauty, this month we reflect that human beings all too often bring ugliness into your world — especially through violence against...

Editorial: Light it up! Fireworks remind us what this nation is all about
America has experienced a fireworks overload in recent months. So hot has the discourse become that some of us might find the actual firing of rockets anticlimactic. Who needs the momentary incendiary when the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump camps issue political fireworks seemingly...

Editorial: Deaf residency artists help us define life
Artists in the Anderson Center’s ground-breaking Deaf residency pack their bags and head home today and tomorrow. They take with them the same sorts of things all artists who spend a month here do — a renewed sense of purpose, a stronger identity, a clearer focus, the start to...

Editorial: States’ gun laws quietly stand
The states’ rights crowd, often the same folks who are Second Amendment absolutists, should be pleased with last week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision on state gun laws. The court declined without comment to hear appeals to strict gun control laws in New York and Connecticut, signalling...

Editorial: A beautiful piece of infrastructure
Minnesota and five states to the south have begun referring to Interstate 35 as the ‘Monarch Highway.” The informal nickname is rooted in a very formal memorandum of understanding signed May 26 to save the North American monarch from extinction. The Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri,...

The area’s 2016 high school graduates belong to one of those special classes — artistic, athletic, studious, friendly, talented, caring and more — that come along every few years, a class where “all the children are above average,” as Garrison Keillor puts it. Cliques don’t...
