Editorial: Boost downtown, boost yourself
When you buy local, you support yourself. Really. We’re not talking the feel-good moment when you pamper yourself, a family member or friend. Nor are we talking about the satisfaction of filling a genuine need, such as purchasing groceries. We‘re talking the unseen return on...

Editorial: Help drive the economy
“Shop local” is a familiar mantra during the holidays. Many merchandisers, but particularly small-town retailers, know that the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas can make or break their year … and sometimes their business. Red Wing’s downtown merchants stress that...

Editorial: Go slowly on referendums
Few people are probably surprised to hear that the Red Wing School Board is talking about a November referendum. After all, the district recently trimmed $1.6 million for the 2015-16 school year, and the tendency in education is to approach the voters for more money after budget cuts....

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: A taxing day

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...
