Letter: Afghanis long for peace; come learn about it
With so much going on since the elections Nov. 8 and the lead-up to the inauguration, many of you may have forgotten or overlooked America's longest war, namely the war in Afghanistan. Even now there are rumors of more U.S. troops going to Afghanistan in Helmand province, an area...

Letter: Standing with standing rock
"Protests are not the same," the Grand Forks Herald's editorial printed in the RE Dec. 3&4, is a first-class "whitewash" of a contemporary environmentally and culturally significant concern.

Viewpoint: Time to help the homeless right here
Homelessness is a critical issue in the towns and rural areas of Goodhue County. In Red Wing, three years ago a group of citizens formed a committee to address the shelter needs of homeless individuals and families. We work in collaboration with HOPE Coalition, Connecting Connections,...

Letter: What will and should you do?
Every day you're given a chance to chase your dreams, or to sit around and do nothing. I hear students complain about how they aren't good at sports. I also hear, "I wish I was like you." What bothers me is that they do nothing about it. So a question comes to my mind, why do some...

Letter: Twin Bluff doesn't need a roundabout
The roundabout that is supposed to be made by Twin Bluff Middle School is unnecessary for our community. First of all, it is a waste of money. It costs a lot of money to have a roundabout built. Instead, the money could go toward the schools and programs that the schools offer. Money...

Letter: Work offers face-to-face lessons
Having certain jobs in the community where you get to interact with people face-to-face is fantastic. Personally, I work at Walgreens, and I can say building relationships by talking to people at the register helps the town of Red Wing a lot. By just working there for a few weeks,...

Letter: Speed up Red Wing High School parking lot repairs
Parking in the Red Wing High School parking lot is difficult for many students in many different ways. The school makes us pay for a pass to park here. The cost is really high while our parking lot looks bad. Where does the money go that we pay to park here? It is not going into the...

Letter: Turmoil in individual insurance market demands immediate reforms to MNsure and Affordable Care Act
After another rocky rollout for MNsure, the state's health insurance exchange, the reality of higher costs and fewer choices is becoming all too clear for Minnesotans shopping for health insurance in the individual market. Residents from Red Wing to Lake City to Wabasha to Winona...

Letter: Nation must be metric to compete in manufacturing
One of the more pointless things people running for political office regularly say is, "We need change." Change happens, regardless of what we do. It's one of the three things you can count on, along with death and taxes. Too many of these change-chanters have no idea what needs to...

Letter: Watch where Wabasha County tax dollars go
To the Editor: Our dollars: their pay. Just what are we paying Wabasha County commissioners in wages, benefits and per diems? Last year Dave Harms, Deb Roschen and Merl Norman voted to eliminate taxpayer-funded health care and lowered their salaries for 2013 as a cost-saving measure....
