Letter: Elected officials must represent all of us always
To the Editor: I have to say that I am disappointed with our past election. I’m disappointed that a candidate chose to use the presidential platform to insult numerous individuals on countless occasions for a variety of reasons without ever issuing an apology. How our president-elect...

Letter: Parents or Coaches?
To the Editor: Putting your children into sports is a big deal these days, but is it really so special if your child doesn’t even play? More often than not we are dealing with a team that is ran by parents rather than coaches. From the outside perspective it just looks like these...

Letter: Keep Painting the Bluff
Barn Bluff is one of our town's most iconic features. On the west side of the bluff citizens of Red Wing will paint messages, symbols, pictures or even tributes. This is something we, as a town, should keep doing as it has been a type of tradition and is something that makes our town...

Letter: Roundabout was a mistake
To the Editor: The roundabout that has been built down by Baypoint Park and the boat houses is unnecessary. First, a roundabout costs a lot of money to build and put in. The money that they use could go to better things like the schools or other Red Wing programs that need more money....

LETTER: We’re all in this together
To the Editor: Democracy: A form of government in which people choose leaders by voting. The election took place Tuesday, Nov. 8, and for some voters, the winner was who they voted for but others not. That is how a democracy works. The idea of protesting and complaining because your...

LETTER: Turmoil in individual insurance market demands immediate reforms

EDITORIAL: The mandate is yours
Republicans should be wary of flinging around the “M” word. They have no clear mandate. Regardless of the fact that the GOP will hold the presidency, the U.S. Senate and U.S. House — as well as control the Minnesota House and Senate — come January, the 2016 election was about...

Letter: Let's work to benefit all Americans
I am, admittedly, and old white guy. I am not angry at anyone. I believe immigrants are, and always have been, our country's greatest strength. They should be welcomed and nourished, not feared. I think women should be respected as equal partners, not objectified. They should not...

Over the past year, it has been a privilege getting to meet so many residents of District 21. To those who greeted me at your door, out in the field on your farm, along the parade route or around town, you've all made this a wonderful experience. Your support and encouragement means...

County Board: Drotos asks for your vote
I first ran for this seat four years ago because Commissioner Ted Seifert wanted to allow frac sand mining. Since then, demand for frac sand has gone down with the price of oil, but our differences give voters a clear choice. You can count on Seifert to put big-business interests...

Letter: Schmit always puts community's interested first
For all the talk of "public service" playing out in the race for Senate District 21, I was totally upset after reading Deb Roschen's letter. Having known our Sen. Matt Schmit as his business colleague, his friend and now his constituent, I can tell you what he won't: Matt built a...
