Editorial: Please consider the Prairie View proposal
There is a group of determined investors who want to buy Prairie View Elementary School from the Ellsworth Community School District and repurpose it into a senior living facility. To them, it's killing two birds with one stone, as the old saying goes. It would provide housing for...

Editorial: Ready or not ... winter driving has arrived
Were you ready for this weekend's storm? The Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation and the National Weather Service issued warning after warning, so you should have been. There's plenty of winter ahead, so get and stayed prepared. Full tank of fuel, wiper fluid filled,...

EDITORIAL: The mandate is yours
Republicans should be wary of flinging around the “M” word. They have no clear mandate. Regardless of the fact that the GOP will hold the presidency, the U.S. Senate and U.S. House — as well as control the Minnesota House and Senate — come January, the 2016 election was about...

Editorial: Please make special effort
Should just 14 percent of Red Wing's eligible voters choose the next mayor? That's essentially what happened in 2011. Dennis Egan technically won a majority (if you can call it that) of the small vote and then went on to win re-election. Two years later the community finds itself...

The online sales tax law is overdue
Local retailers face an invisible wall, but the barrier is very real. Stores must charge customers the 6.875 percent sales tax while their Internet counterparts operating outside the state do not. This gives the online sellers such as Amazon an advantage over the brick-and-mortar...

Editorial: Burning issue
We are serious when we say Red Wing has a burning issue that doesn't seem to have caught fire with the public. There's a genuine possibility that the incinerator will shut down July 1. Where will your local garbage go then? Will your rates increase? How will the lack of steam power...

Editorial: Campaign begins
Six candidates for mayor. We wish every election offered voters as much choice for a single office as the June 11 special election will. Unfortunately, this time choice comes with risk: Voters will not have the opportunity to narrow the broad field through a primary election. A...
