Editorial: Christmas — don't call it a comeback
To take a stroll at night right now through these smaller Midwest towns, it's not hard to feel the spirit of Christmas. Local shops have decorated their windows and storefronts, streetlights gleam with vibrant, holiday colors and decorations, and people are heard throughout town wishing...

Editorial: Lawmakers must be open about harassment allegations
Individually, our local state and national lawmakers have denounced sexual harassment. While they must do so given the scandals bringing down powerful men across the nation, we genuinely believe most of these fine people are sincere.

Editorial: Free to talk, leave
The naysayers and the unpatriotic continue to cheer on National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. That may irritate and disgust the average American, but calling Snowden a hero or labeling him a revolutionary is protected speech.

Editorial: No rocket's red glare
Rough landing: Red Wing won't have Independence Day fireworks this year. This week's announcement likely will have some citizens seeing red -- red anger and red ink... but, of course, no red glare come July 4. Location, permissions and money are among the factors behind the cancellation....

Editorial: Don't pull U-turn on road plan
There's a reason that states across the nation prohibit U-turns on interstate highways. U-turns are hazardous, especially when traffic is cruising at 65 mph. A U-turn requires a motorist to slow down - essentially stop - to navigate a hairpin turn before accelerating to re-enter traffic. Why...
