Letter: Ban nuclear weapons
All over the country and especially in Japan there were ceremonies commemorating the dropping of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These are always very solemn events which make us think about the decisions made to use such weapons.

Letter: Bike trails boost local economies

Our community has a request from our youths: Will you mentor me? Will you answer that call? Last year the Red Wing middle school started a mentoring project. The goal was to bring adults into the school to interact with students during the lunch hour. This supervised activity was...

Viewpoint: Community's let's-do-this attitude prevails
Steve Jobs once said, "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." Immigrants, inventors and innovators spurred Red Wing's early growth. Whether it was manufacturing, agriculture, or the arts, our founders shared a combined sense of risk-taking, resourcefulness, unbridled...
