Letter: Newspaper missed the real story
To the Editor: With due respect to the reporter and editor, there was much more discussed at the last Port Authority meeting than has apparently met the eye. We considered potential features of the Central Research Laboratory property, but after that there was an even more meaningful...

Letter: Port never talked of parking ramp
To the Editor: I read the editorial "Port Apply the Brakes" (R-E, May 15) I am frustrated that the editorial clearly takes liberties with the discussion that was held at the last Port Authority Board meeting. I presented the concept of "eco-industrial development" as an idea that...

Editorial: Port, apply the brakes
The last thing Red Wing's western gateway needs is a ginormous concrete slab disguised as a parking lot. Port Authority Executive Director Myron White unveiled a four-pronged development alternative Monday for the former Central Research Laboratory property. He wants to create a...

White has hot idea for prime property

Editorial: Surprise. Port gets a new view
Soaring high: The Red Wing Port Authority desperately needed someone with a fresh approach, someone who could look at development from a different perspective. Tom Brown, who joined the board two months ago, clearly offers just that. His proposal Monday not only breathed new life...

Letter: City needs candid discussions, and soon
To the Editor: The failure of negotiation between John Falconer and the Port Authority on the sale of land to build a winery raises troubling questions. Refusal of the Real Estate Committee to grant first position to a lender in the deal contradicts what several commercial bankers...

Brown unveils alternate plan for winery deal
After negotiations broke down between John Falconer and the Red Wing Port Authority's real estate committee, the much-ballyhooed Falconer winery expansion seemed dead in the water. At the Port's Monday meeting, however, port member Tom Brown threw it a life preserver. Brown,...

Letter: Port will have city dying from the inside out
