Letter: Drotos doesn't understand drug users, but he should get feedlots
I have been reading with great skepticism the recent spate of articles by Goodhue County Commissioner Paul Drotos regarding the opioid crisis in our nation. His most recent broadside (RE, Feb. 10) compels to me respond. Using the Olympics as his rubric, he spews on and on about "rules,"...

Letter: Room to park your car, but not to live
Is there a housing shortage in Red Wing? Young friends of mine say, "yes." But, they have just found one. Others, I hear, are not so fortunate. Especially if they are financially not so fortunate.

Letter: Help make democracy work: Attend a caucus
We need to keep our democracy strong. Of course it is important to vote and not just blindly without knowing what a candidate stands for, but for what you believe in. However, long before the election, we need to encourage good candidates to run. We need to help the candidates who...
