To The Editor: We invite everyone to a rally supporting our troops and their mission at 12:45 p.m. Saturday at Fourth and Main streets in downtown Cannon Falls. Everyone is encouraged to make signs expressing their support. With all of the coverage being given to anti-war protests, it is important to let our service people know that the majority of the people in this country support them and what they are embarking upon.
To The Editor: These are tough times with many criticisms and concerns among our people in Red Wing and across the country. It is difficult to set priorities and to put all issues into perspective. Whatever cause you choose to support or defend, one thing cannot be denied: Problems are solved by well-informed, open-minded and creative thinkers. All these attitudes are taught and nourished through instruction in the arts in our public schools. Band, orchestra and choir teach fundamental discipline and presentation skills. Theater teaches teamwork and confidence.

ST. PAUL -- Democratic senators dispute a Pawlenty administration claim that its budget proposal would preserve most education funding without a tax increase. "There is a huge increase," Sen. LeRoy Stumpf, DFL-Thief River Falls, said about property tax increases hidden in Gov. Tim Pawlenty's budget plan. Not true, Education Department spokesman Bill Walsh said. "That's their decision," Walsh said of local school districts' choice to raise taxes.
