Letter: U.S. energy policies are misguided
By John F. Elskamp, Fulda It appears the EPA is caught in a crossfire. It encourages us to avoid fossil fuels and not cause pollution by burning wood in our stoves and fireplaces, and use other renewable fuels. To comply with new regulations, our wood burners will need some form...

As others see it: Make immigration reform a high priority

As others see it: Focus on fixing MNsure
The rollout was rough. Minnesotans got an earful of that. But we never heard how rough. Until now. This week the Office of the Legislative Auditor released a thorough — and thoroughly thrashing — review of MNsure, Minnesota’s state-run health-insurance exchange, our piece...

Editorial: Save our roads
It’s probably safe to say the $6 billion transportation plan announced Tuesday by Gov. Mark Dayton won’t be passed in its current form. That said, Dayton is still wise to at least put forward the plan, even though control of the Minnesota Legislature is divided and Republicans...

Editorial: Support Simonson for regents’ board
For more than 20 years, a Mayo/Rochester representative has had the Congressional District 1 position on the University of Minnesota Board of Regents. Quite simply, we think it’s time that changed. Dr. Randy Simonson, CEO of Grasix Animal Health in Worthington, is a finalist for...

As others see it: Carefully consider sick-days law
You get sick, you take a day off. Of course you do. No boss, co-worker or customer wants you coming in and making everyone else ill. And really, if you feel that lousy, how valuable would your work be? How much would you really get done? And would your compromised health and less-than-sharp...

Editorial: Mall site offers ample opportunity
Tired of hearing about the plight of the deteriorating Northland Mall? So are we. That’s why last Thursday night’s Worthington Regional Economic Development Corp. (WREDC) annual meeting offered a refreshing perspective on our community. Rather than dwell on the mall’s negatives...

Let's focus on sustained, strategic transportation funding
BLOOMINGTON — We agree with Gov. Mark Dayton: Let’s get real about transportation. Minnesotans demand safe and efficient movement of people and goods. Our existing dedicated revenues fall short of maintaining our system of roads, bridges and transit, let alone allowing for strategic...

Time to listen, learn and lead

Editorial: WHS band students make us proud
A group of more than 130 high school students visiting Florida seems like it could be a recipe for all kinds of trouble. Instead, the Worthington High School band students did plenty to make their community proud. It’s a testament to many people — from director Jon Loy, to the...

As others see it: Harkin left his mark
Few, if any Iowans would argue the signature achievement of Tom Harkin’s 40 years in Congress (10 years in the House, 30 years in the Senate) is the Americans With Disabilities Act he authored and shepherded to passage and signature by President George H.W. Bush in 1990. The ADA...
