Letter: Start making it OK to talk about mental illness
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to come together, fight stigma, provide support, educate the public and advocate for equal care. Mental illness is a medical condition, but is often surrounded by stigma or stereotypes that prevent people from getting the help they need....

Letter: Regarding immigration, it's about justice and humanity
We, in America, are descendants of immigrants. I recall hearing my grandmother tell about her parent's emigrating from Norway. They were seeking a new land of freedom and opportunity. They resettled in the Bad Axe River Valley of Vernon County near Viroqua, Wis. Apparently, new immigrants...

Letter: What's the point of public input?
City Council did our community a disfavor in refusing comments before approving LabUSA's ash mining project. Why? There's value in public comments, and this project's morphing demonstrates that value. In the environmental assessment worksheet, several things that were problematic...

Letter: Don't double factory farm size
Some legislators believe that bigger is better, but that's not true when it comes to feedlot size. This week the Senate will hear File 1087 (Sen. Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria) that would allow for doubling the size of a factory farm, from 1,000 animal units to 2,000, before an...

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: 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...
