Editorial: Ready or not ... winter driving has arrived
Were you ready for this weekend's storm? The Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation and the National Weather Service issued warning after warning, so you should have been. There's plenty of winter ahead, so get and stayed prepared. Full tank of fuel, wiper fluid filled,...

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...

Editorial: Commence meeting new obligations
The last of the area's 2013 high school seniors will walk across the stage this weekend. Starting in late May families and friends have seen hundreds of local students celebrate an important milestone -- one that symbolizes the start of adult life. The Republican Eagle again features...

Soaring high: We suspect the new volunteer coordinator will give the city of Red Wing its biggest bang for the buck in fiscal 2013 -- and that's despite not coming on board until the second quarter. Lori Brandl's primary responsibility is to maximize volunteer opportunities and connect...

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...

Editorial: Campaign begins
Six candidates for mayor. We wish every election offered voters as much choice for a single office as the June 11 special election will. Unfortunately, this time choice comes with risk: Voters will not have the opportunity to narrow the broad field through a primary election. A...

Editorial: Patriots Day attack stirs up patriotism
Early Bostonians were among the first colonists to demand fair representation, resulting in the Boston Tea Party. The Revolution soon followed and a free nation was born. The terrorists -- what else would anyone call those responsible for Monday's despicable act -- would do well...

Editoirlal: USPS news gets stamp of approval
The financially troubled U.S. Postal Service plays a vital role in the economy, particularly in small towns where people rely on the mail for business, medicines, information and more in ways metropolitan residents can't imagine. Cutting Saturday delivery and raising prices would...

Editorial: Vote, Wisconsin
Wisconsin residents should head to the polls Tuesday. While there are regional and statewide races for judge and education superintendent, local races and local concerns are the focus for most voters. And that's the beauty of spring elections. Without them we fear that some pretty...

Editorial:District must nip unpaid leave now
The Family and Medical Leave Act offers employees up to 12 weeks of excused leave every year. Their jobs are protected even when they have no vacation or sick days left. Congress enacted the 1993 law to help employees balance work and personal obligations without having to choose...
