Editorial: Keep traffic zipping along
One day the construction sign reads “Right lane closed ahead.” Two days later, it’s “Left lane closed.” Today’s edition includes another Highway 61/Main Street construction update coming out of the weekly Tuesday meeting. You can expect more single-lane traffic, detours...

Editorial: Stage is set for success(or)
The community will gather Sunday afternoon at the Sheldon Theatre to toast and roast Executive Director Sean Dowse. The curtain has opened (figuratively in most cases) on more than a thousand productions and performances during his tenure. There’s little room for dispute that...

Editorial: Welcome to Minnesecrets? No, thanks.
Secrecy has become a dark, dirty habit at the Minnesota Capitol. Getting the people’s work done once again boiled down to closed-door negotiations. Gov. Mark Dayton, House Speaker Kurt Daudt and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk can say they prevented a third state government shutdown...

Editorial: Shine a bright light on details
We commend Red Wing City Council for directing staff to begin negotiations with Minnesota Community Solar on the proposed community solar garden off Highways 19 and 61. Monday’s vote indicates the council is serious about the Red Wing Comprehensive Plan goal that the city will get...

Editorial: Train yourself to be alert to trains
More motorists and pedestrians than usual are crossing the railroad tracks near the Red Wing Depot this summer. Locals know that taking Levee Road to Broad Street is one way to avoid Highway 61 construction and congestion. June is Rail Crossing Safety Awareness Month, the perfect...

Editorial: Taking a shine to solar garden
Red Wing again finds itself at the Central Research Laboratories crossroads. In 2007, the City Council and Port Authority rejected Falconer Vineyards’ proposal for the site at Highways 19 and 61 that CRL had vacated years earlier. Officials concluded after months of public debate...

Editorial: Reinforce the unique
Yes, you can reach downtown Red Wing. Yes, this may require you to do some fancy navigating. Yes, the extra effort is worth it. As we intend to make clear during Main Street/Highway 61 reconstruction, there are many reasons to “shop local.” In the editorial in the May 6 print...

Editorial: Pedal harder
Nearly half of Minnesotans rode a bicycle last year, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation 2014 Omnibus Transportation Survey. That means well over 2.6 million of the state’s 5,457,173 residents hopped on a cycle — be it a one-, two- and three-wheel variety —...

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...

“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....

Editorial: Help HCP choose what to do with South End
Red Wing loves its history. There is no doubt. Individuals, businesses and City Hall have spent millions of dollars preserving the Victorian downtown. There are a half dozen museums in this community of less than 17,000. In addition to numerous sites being listed on the National Register...

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...
