Editorial: Back to school, but new routine
Summer — as most Midwesterners define it — was about the longest it could ever be, with an early Memorial Day observed May 25 on one end and a late Labor Day of Sept. 7 on the other. The weather was glorious, so you were likely to encounter young people everywhere you went. The...

Cops vs firefighters?
Red Wing firefighters and police officers take their work seriously. They must to keep people and personal property safe. But police and firefighters also need to work well together when circumstances bring both departments to the scene — be it of a crime, fire, rescue, crash,...

Editorial: Hedin sees his vision through
Robert Hedin has many views of Tower View, as this story explains. In truth, it was his vision for the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies — what it could be, what it became and now what it will become after his retirement — that made the place something words can’t...

Editorial: Many kids had great summer to celebrate
Red Wing can be a pretty terrific place to be a kid. Just consider ... Summer Recreation, a community program that the YMCA coordinates and that is open to all elementary-age children weekdays in June and July, made the most of select neighborhood parks. Children learned a few things...

Editorial: Real starting point
Goodhue County commissioners on both sides of the budget debate have exchanged salvos at almost every meeting since the Cannon Valley Fair. Cut, don’t cut. Create a new automotive sales tax, don’t add a tax. Raise the property levy, freeze the levy. On Tuesday, they, citizens...

Editorial: Healthy 'sibling' exchanges will benefit us all
Soaring high: Red Wing Sister Cities had four local teens travel to Ikata, Japan, for two weeks this summer. Immediately upon their return, these youths played host to four teens from Ikata. Anyone who saw two delegations walking in the River City Days parade could see how some of...

Veritable armies of volunteers make festivals, fairs and other events the highlights of the summer for the rest of us. It’s been quite a season already — from Stockholm Art Fair to Ellsworth Cheese Curd Days, from Lake City Waterski Days to Red Wing River City Days, from the Cannon...

Editorial: Come on, sing! River City Days is upon us
River City Days make us want to sing — and we’re talking not Meredith Willson’s “Ya Got Trouble,” although “Music Man” tunes are always good. We want to sing because Red Wing’s annual summer celebration again includes oodles of free and low-cost music. It starts...

Editorial: The need for safer tankers is clear
A few years ago the Red Wing Republican Eagle probably wouldn’t have carried a full news story about two train derailments 20 miles apart in Montana within six days. The derailments were fairly minor: some cars left the tracks, no one was hurt, and crews contained the mess and then...

Editorial: Racing away to nowhere
Summer can be deadly on Minnesota roads, which average 28 deaths from June to August due to speeding vehicles. Another 79 people suffer severe injuries due to crashes every summer. There are many reasons for this, including the lovely weather — people are less alert than in the...

Editorial: The bands play on, thanks to Beckwith
When people around the world hear the words “Red Wing,” they often think of shoes, pottery and, if they’re musicians, instrument repair. Much of the credit for the latter goes to Gene Beckwith and the local visionaries who hired him. Minnesota State College-Southeast Technical,...

There are few better places to spend Independence Day than at a national park. Congress set aside key spots across the country — from the Yellowstone to Yosemite, from the Grand Cannon to Voyageurs — so that they will be there for all U.S. citizens to enjoy forever. Despite fears...
