Letter: Markings take away from Barn Bluff’s beauty
Flags, Prince symbol, or class year. This isn’t about what is painted on the bluff. It is about one individual — or possibly a group — deciding what should be painted on the bluff irrespective of the citizens of Red Wing. The government was formed to allow citizens to petition...
