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,...

As other see it: Settle transgender issues by law, not fiat

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...

As others see it: ‘Gap year’ may help some
About 3.3 million students are expected to graduate from U.S. high schools this year. One of President Barack Obama’s daughters is among them. Earlier this month, the White House announced Malia will not go directly to college. She is taking a so-called “gap year” after graduation...

Editorial: It's time to get moving on bonding
It’s not unusual for meaningful law-making work in St. Paul to be completed at the last minute, and House Republicans are certainly doing their part to try and make sure the same holds true this year. Even though this represents a traditional bonding year for the Minnesota Legislature,...

As others see it: Let's all fight teen drug use
It is hard to imagine an anti-drug message more impactful than one from a grieving parent: “This loss has devastated our lives. We struggle to make sense of how it happened to Tara. Those who have not experienced it cannot know the depth of our grief.” Those simple, raw words...

As others see it: Minnesota should consider a primary
So important is the office of the president that Europeans often say they wish they could vote in U.S. elections. That won’t be happening anytime soon, of course. But it helps explain what’s happening in Minnesota right now, as the Legislature comes closer to scrapping the presidential...

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...

Editorial: Thumbs up on a downtown King Turkey Day
Back when the King Turkey Day Board of Directors opted to split the annual festivities between downtown and the Nobles County Fairgrounds, we were on board with the idea. Spreading the festival outward from a congested downtown, we wrote, would give southwest Minnesota’s biggest...

Guest editorial: Midwest leads reshaping of American energy
ST. PAUL — Just a little less than a year ago, the Department of Energy set an ambitious, and some said unachievable, target: by 2030, wind could supply 20 percent of U.S. electricity. Today, because of American ingenuity and production-based policies, we’re on track to reach...

There was no reason not to believe Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Daudt who said he didn’t receive special treatment last year when credit card debt judgments against him were wiped off the books. He also said his personal financial problems are resolved and in his past. Still, there’s...
