This appears to be a promotional meeting for the garbage incinerator ash mining project that the Red Wing Public Works Department is pushing along with Xcel Energy. An announcement from the Red Wing Area Chamber of Commerce gives the impression that the chamber is also promoting this.

Viewpoint Those of us who regarded Donald Trump's election as an unmitigated disaster could only hope that his campaign histrionics would give way to a reality in which he did as he stated he would: surrounded himself with the best and brightest advisers he could.
Sheronne Mulry of Wabasha was recently re-elected to represent the Hastings to Iowa Border Region on the Minnesota Mississippi River Parkway Commission. The MN-MRPC oversees the Minnesota Great River Road National Scenic Byway as the Mississippi River's continuous pleasure drive network. It works to ensure travelers can connect and experience the river.
There are two numbers I've been reflecting on this month: $2.1 billion and $373.3 billion. One of these is the total amount raised by the Trump and Clinton campaigns in the last election cycle. One is the amount of charitable contributions during 2015, a record-setting year. Can you guess which is which?
My congratulations and gratitude to Lynn Dulak. Her viewpoint article in the Nov. 19 & 20 edition is a fitting and due tribute to President Barack Obama. I share her viewpoint. To add to her thoughts, Obama's wife and daughters have also provided exemplary service as a family and given us many moments of joy and examples of grace under pressure. Joan Kovacs Red Wing
The Minnesota Department of Revenue estimates that property taxes could climb $344.3 million statewide in 2017. That would amount to a 3.8 percent increase over 2016. That projected increase is contingent on each and every local government across the state approving the preliminary levy it sent to the state back in September.
