Editorial: Let’s talk some serious turkey
Minnesota lawmakers have pledged $1 million to help address the bird flu epidemic. Such quick action is commendable since Minnesota farms have lost 1.7 million turkeys and the virulent H5N2 strain is spreading. Wisconsin’s losses are at nearly 400,000 turkeys. On Monday, Iowa disposed...

Editorial: Good long run
Today marks 50 years of rumble, rumble. When the weather is this nice, Flood Run organizers automatically expect a big crowd because sunshine adds to a motorcyclist’s incentive to rev up the bike for the season. Thousands of riders are expected this year because this is a true...

Editorial: A taxing day
Your income tax return is due today. If you’re feeling particularly pinched, there’s little wonder. Minnesotans will pay more in overall taxes than most of the nation, according to the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. The state is behind only New Jersey and Connecticut, tied for...

Editorial: Ring out
Minnesotans made a big deal — and rightfully so — when the 150th anniversary of the Civil War began. President Abraham Lincoln called for Union troops on April 15, 1861, and Minnesota answered gallantly and proudly answered first. The First Minnesota — with its roots right...

Editorial: At what point are district voters on the learning curve?

There’s more daylight than darkness today. That’s because spring has arrived. Can we also say there’s more daylight than darkness in our government? Today wraps up Sunshine Week, a national initiative to promote dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom...

Editorial: Rich legacies
Three legacy leaders join the Red Wing Women’s Hall of Fame — Kay Kuhlmann, Diane Hallstrom and Anne Jones. Their induction Wednesday briefly places them in the spotlight, but all three emphasized that what drives them is making their community not only a better place but the...

Editorial: Sound the blue alert
The Minnesota House moved the state closer this week to joining the National Blue Alert movement. The system enables lightning quick communication between law enforcement, media and transportation agencies as well as the general public when an officer is seriously injured or killed...

Editorial: The message is the message can wait
Cellphone and Facebook records indicate texting and Internet messaging played a role in why a mother lost control of her vehicle in Pierce County 16 months ago. Her daughter and two nieces died. Wednesday’s newspaper carried the story of how her smartphone wasn’t found until...

Editorial: Let's talk love
Valentine’s Day, the day of love, is here — a day of roses, candy, diamond rings and happiness. On Friday, school children exchanged valentines. What could be sweeter? But come Monday, the reality is that some student will encounter bullying by the very classmate who said, “Be...

Editorial: They are among many who serve
Soaring high: Public employees sometimes find themselves the brunt of undeserved criticism. For instance, it’s easier to blame an anonymous snowplow driver when in reality the reason you went into the ditch is you were driving too fast. If you take time to think about it, you will...

Editorial: End harassment
Women didn’t talk much about sexual harassment 25 years ago. They certainly didn’t tackle the issue publicly. If they suffered harassment on the job, they tended to endure it or quit. Anita Hill helped change that when she stood before the all-male U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee...

Editorial: Sharing road responsibility
Substantial declines in the numbers of pedestrian, bicyclist and motorcyclist deaths in 2014 are indications that Minnesotans are doing a better job sharing the road. The state Department of Public Safety reports that 17 pedestrians died last year compared to 35 in 2013. Five bicyclists...
