‘Green Lighting’ veterans a new, great concept

Veterans Day was celebrated this week. Although only federal, state and some county offices are closed on Nov. 11, we feel it is a day that should have the same status as Memorial Day or the Fourth of July.

Unfortunately, that status has not been awarded to our veterans. In fact, although government employees — whether they have served in the Armed Forces nor not — have the day off, not many of our veterans do.

A quick course on Open Meeting Law

A Glencoe City Council member stopped by Friday to ask us to check into whether a  morning meeting between county and city officials had violated the Minnesota Open Meeting Law.
