I thought it was a simple solution for a simple problem. Make a narrow path in the deep snow on Knight Avenue, south of the railroad tracks, so people can more easily walk to the City Center/library on 12th Street.

Well, the McLeod County commissioners are doing just that with their hasty decision to purchase the Jungclaus Implement building on Chandler Avenue and turn it into a consolidated county office building. First, the building is not designed as an office building. Second, it...

Vote “no” on Nov. 6 on the proposed amendment requiring state-issued voter IDs. Blatant political maneuvering should have no permanent place in Minnesota’s Constitution. As the rheotoric ratchets up as the election nears, what does the voter ID amendment actually say? While there has been a lot of discussion over the wording of...
