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: Let it shine
Spring forward. For most Americans, the phrase refers to Sunday's switch to daylight saving time. For news organizations, the day we advance clocks ahead one hour also signals the start of Sunshine Week, a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open...

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...

Editorial: A healthful approach to local care
We're fortunate to live within easy driving distance to the world's premiere health care provider. When in doubt, go to the best -- Mayo Clinic. We're equally fortunate that today we can say Mayo Clinic Health System is in our backyard. Residents of Goodhue, Pierce, Pepin and Wabasha...

Editorial: Who would be mayor?
Dennis Egan's stepping down is in the best interests of his family, his career and his community. While we wish he'd had the wisdom and foresight not to become executive director of the new Minnesota Industrial Sand Council, he did, and the resulting debate over holding both posts...

Editorial: Red Wing Diversity Festival should spark healthy debate
The strongest families know when to agree to disagree. They enjoy vigorous debates regarding politics, religion and social issues while keeping true to both personal convictions and personal connections. Some of them manage to do it at the dinner table. We are family. That is the...

The budget deal to reopen state government appears possible but fragile. Within minutes of GOP leaders and Gov. Mark Dayton's announcement that they agreed to compromise, others on the political right and left started trying to tear it apart. Monday, when the governor is expected...

Editorial: Mayor is important post in Red Wing
How many people will cast ballots in the special Red Wing mayoral election Tuesday? The answer is anybody's guess. The turnout doesn't look promising, based on unscientific poll results. Only 48 people responded to the past week's R-E online poll and, of those, only seven people...

Editorial: STS works
Sentence to Service saves dollars in the long run. You also can say that STS saves lives ... or at least helps some people turn their lives around. STS is money well spent. We were disappointed when Gov. Tim Pawlenty proposed cutting all state funding because this is one program...
