As others see it: Legislature special session now unlikely
Legislative leaders and the governor hadn’t met in a week, and while there hasn’t been a whole lot of progress on an agreement to hold a special session, there still was lingering optimism. Hope even — even if just a little. That was until last Wednesday, when Gov. Mark Dayton...

As others see it: Don't be so quick to judge
Frightening moments in Duluth and Cincinnati over the weekend left small children in peril, the adults responsible for them no doubt shaken and agonizing, to say the least, and an uncomfortable lot of others far too quick to judge and criticize. Could the parents or guardians involved...

As others see it: No tax breaks for tobacco
Already accused of being members of a do-nothing Legislature, but lawmakers in St. Paul this session did get something done — unfortunately. They approved an omnibus tax bill that included $35 million in tax breaks over the next three years for the tobacco industry. The breaks include...

Editorial: Order, please, in St. Paul
Worthington Public Utilities General Manager Scott Hain had a front-row seat to the end of the Minnesota Legislature’s session late Sunday. As Hain explained in Tuesday’s Daily Globe, a day of waiting around ultimately resulted in no bonding bill being passed — and, therefore,...

Editorial: Let's get something done
With just a few short days left in this Minnesota legislative session, there remains no small amount of heavy lifting to be done. The Legislature is mandated to adjourn no later than Monday, and the equivalent of overtime has appeared increasingly likely with each passing day. It...

Guest editorial: Legislation would encourage pharmacists to offer health care
WASHINGTON — Like a lot of Iowans, I grew up in a rural community. In small towns, there might be a pharmacist on Main Street but no doctor. Iowans are used to driving long distances for the doctor while having easier access to a pharmacist. It becomes natural to ask the pharmacist...
