Letter: Don't be too quick to dismantle health care reform
The No. 1 reason Obamacare has been such a hot topic is because our elected congressional representatives have to personally pay a percentage...

Letter: Jazz lab to play at conference
I would like to take a moment to thank Red Wing on behalf of the Red Wing Band Boosters, directors and students. Your support of the band program in our public schools is fantastic. We have another amazing year ahead of us and value each and every one of you. Our jazz lab will be...

Letter: Standing with standing rock
"Protests are not the same," the Grand Forks Herald's editorial printed in the RE Dec. 3&4, is a first-class "whitewash" of a contemporary environmentally and culturally significant concern.

Letter: Buckle up, don't drink while driving
The Pierce County Sheriff's Office hopes that the upcoming holiday season will be a time of great joy for everyone. But as people gather to celebrate the holidays, some families and friends will have to cope with the absence of a loved one who was killed in a traffic crash.

Letter: Meeting appears to be unadulterated Xcel promotion
A "community meeting" has been announced for 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, in the Red Wing Public Library. This appears to be a promotional meeting for the garbage incinerator ash mining project that the Red Wing Public Works Department is pushing along with Xcel Energy. An announcement...

Letter: Obama's family also exemplify service
My congratulations and gratitude to Lynn Dulak. Her viewpoint article in the Nov. 19 & 20 edition is a fitting and due tribute to President Barack Obama. I share her viewpoint. To add to her thoughts, Obama's wife and daughters have also provided exemplary service as a family and...

Letter: If you can't get around it, take a driving class
For the last 16 years I've taught the state's Motorcycle Safety classes throughout the Twin Cities and outstate Minnesota. I am not a "native Minnesotan," so I am still entertained by Minnesota driving "skills." Merging is as alien a concept in this state as parallel parking is to...

Viewpoint: Time to help the homeless right here
Homelessness is a critical issue in the towns and rural areas of Goodhue County. In Red Wing, three years ago a group of citizens formed a committee to address the shelter needs of homeless individuals and families. We work in collaboration with HOPE Coalition, Connecting Connections,...

Letter: What will and should you do?
Every day you're given a chance to chase your dreams, or to sit around and do nothing. I hear students complain about how they aren't good at sports. I also hear, "I wish I was like you." What bothers me is that they do nothing about it. So a question comes to my mind, why do some...

Letter: Twin Bluff doesn't need a roundabout
The roundabout that is supposed to be made by Twin Bluff Middle School is unnecessary for our community. First of all, it is a waste of money. It costs a lot of money to have a roundabout built. Instead, the money could go toward the schools and programs that the schools offer. Money...

Letter: Increase school's athletic opportunities
Is Red Wing really showing all we got through sports? I grew up in a school with just a women's volleyball team, but I believe we should change that. I think that a men's volleyball team would expand the horizon of some of the young men in our school and can show off the skills of...
