Viewpoint: TCMC Second Train is moving forward
We'd like to squelch a rumor. Ever since a state legislative committee in December rejected a federal grant for environmental work on higher-speed passenger rail, we've been asked over and over if that impacts the second train to Chicago project. The answer is no. The Twin Cities-Milwaukee-Chicago...

Letter: Haley, MNCare Buy-in is a needed option
I read Rep. Barb Haley's column on the possible MNCare Buy-in with great interest. While I agree with Haley on many issues, this is not one of them. Health care premiums continue to be a major burden for independent business people, including farmers like myself. I applaud her efforts...

Letter: Haley wrong on health issues
Making health insurance more affordable and ensuring access to care are key elements of Gov. Mark Dayton's proposed MinnesotaCare buy-in. Unfortunately, Rep. Barb Haley misinterpreted those and other components in her April 15 column. After initial start-up costs, premiums would cover...

Viewpoint: Ordination of women: The time is now
Catholics around the world "pray for vocations" meaning praying that more people will be called by the Holy Spirit to be priests. The good news is that the Spirit is hearing and answering those prayers. Hundreds of women in Europe and the United States have answered the call of the...
