The new leadership in the Legislature has already ticked off a few big accomplishments in the first two months of session. Republicans quickly forged a compromise with Gov. Mark Dayton on emergency health care premium aid, on tax relief and on clean energy. We also recently repealed the unpopular 159-year-old law preventing liquor stores from operating on Sundays. It's something Minnesotans have been asking the Legislature to do for more than a decade.

ST. PAUL — A newly introduced Minnesota House bill aims to cut student debt by offering tax incentives to families saving for college. All 50 states offer college savings plans, which allow families to accumulate savings tax-free until their children head to college. The bill would allow Minnesota taxpayers to deduct contributions to the Minnesota College Student Savings Plan from taxable income. Families with lower or moderate incomes could elect to take a tax credit instead of making deductions.
One of the top-rated bluegrass groups in the country, Balsam Range, will perform its unique brand of vocal and instrumental music at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 11, at the Sheldon Theatre.

To best appreciate where you are, first, you need to leave. That's the consensus from the artist and teacher who participated in an exchange program with Quzhou, China — one of Red Wing's sister cities. The exchange participants recently attended a welcome potluck for Victor Yu, a visiting teacher from Quzhou who will be in Red Wing through May 7. For the Red Wing teachers and artists in attendance, it was an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences abroad.
