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...

Editorial: Please make special effort
Should just 14 percent of Red Wing's eligible voters choose the next mayor? That's essentially what happened in 2011. Dennis Egan technically won a majority (if you can call it that) of the small vote and then went on to win re-election. Two years later the community finds itself...

The online sales tax law is overdue
Local retailers face an invisible wall, but the barrier is very real. Stores must charge customers the 6.875 percent sales tax while their Internet counterparts operating outside the state do not. This gives the online sellers such as Amazon an advantage over the brick-and-mortar...

Editorial: Burning issue
We are serious when we say Red Wing has a burning issue that doesn't seem to have caught fire with the public. There's a genuine possibility that the incinerator will shut down July 1. Where will your local garbage go then? Will your rates increase? How will the lack of steam power...
