As a lifelong resident of Red Wing, I have personally watched mood-altering substances take over the minds and lives of so many individuals, young and old. Drugs and alcohol do not discriminate who they affect and the use of them continues to damage and destroy not only the individuals, but the families of those individuals as well. More and more families are broken up or have child protection involvement directly related to alcohol and drug use and abuse, but without any inpatient services in this area, the ones struggling are forced to seek help hours away.
Q: Can you give an update on the Red Wing 2040 Community Plan and our city government's 10-Year Strategic Plan and how these two relate?
The Land Stewardship Project works to address the health care crisis in rural Minnesota because we know that lack of affordable, high-quality care is a major barrier to having thriving rural communities with more farmers on the land.
Wow, what a show for "Booster Night and Senior Night" at the Sonju arena Tuesday night. Led by Zach Cota's net-scorching 40 points, the underdog Wingers fell only two points short of upsetting the Rochester Mayo Spartans, who escaped with a 100-98 victory. You never expected it would be that close against a top-tier team in the Big Nine Conference! All credit to the guys and coach Drew Olinger. Though only a couple wins on the season, the kids always give it their best shot, competing non-stop up and down the court.
The Bridge Of Valor is supported by national organizations, Gold Star families, regional commanders, veterans, and citizens. A group of veterans and citizens began meeting a year ago to share their mutual interest in promoting a name for the new bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Red Wing. Our ideas began with the media coverage of the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War, 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, and the realization that Pierce County and Goodhue County lost 20 young men in Vietnam.
The Pledge of Allegiance is sufficient and does not require a supplemental pledge created by the Red Wing Human Rights Commission. I ask each commissioner and council member who voted for the "New Pledge" — What does the Pledge of Allegiance mean to you? And why do you think is not adequate? The Pledge of Allegiance is a powerful, meaningful and sufficient. To me, the Pledge of Allegiance means: I (an individual commitment) Pledge (a solemn promise to) Allegiance (my total devotion and commitment)
Goodhue County Cooperative Electric is asking us to vote on an "Alternative Dispute Resolution" over any and all disputes, claims, or controversies. Whereby we would be signing away our constitutional right to suit, trial by jury, class action, or appeals to this co-op who may have wronged our person or property. The members should think long and hard before voting this bylaw into action.
It's March, and across Minnesota people are working to replenish the grocery supply at all 300 of our state's food shelves. In Red Wing that means individuals like you, families, congregations, civic groups, businesses, schools and organizations could donate food and cash to the Red Wing Area Food Shelf, also. We greatly appreciate your support of the 2019 Minnesota FoodShare Campaign. With your help we can ease hunger in Minnesota, one family at a time. Food Shelf Board Benjie Achen Stacey Anderson
