Column: A cleaner river starts with clean streets
Erosion is still the No. 1 cause of water pollution in the Mississippi River and it is pretty obvious that "Old Muddy" is shorthand for all of those suspended solids which darken the water and clog Lake Pepin. You would think that that with all of the high water this year, the...

Column: Reform needs healthy bipartisanship
As the outlines of the current version of health care reform begin to emerge, one thing has become perfectly clear: The majority party in Washington has no intention of bipartisanship. Before the televised summit at the Blair House in Washington, President Obama submitted an 11-page...

Unallotment marks DFL failure
"Devastating." "Irresponsible." "Drastic." The only thing more laughable than Sen. Steve Murphy's latest rant about Governor Pawlenty's unallotment plans -- a move forced on the governor by Murphy and his DFL cohorts -- is his comment that the Legislature passed a "responsible...

Veterans deserve and receive preference
We all can recognize that most aspects of employment law affect how we do business on a daily basis. Some areas of law are the exception and affect only a few employees and employers. While these uncommon laws relate only to the minority, their importance should be recognized. One...

Column: Changes have short-changed state's counties
