Editorial: Newspapers remain the trusted source for news, advertising
Today's front page has no news on it. Subscribers already know that, of course, because it’s quite possible they gasped when they unfurled this edition on their doorstep. For those who are shocked or disappointed, let the feeling sink in for a moment, because this is what would...

As others see it: Newspapers still top choice for news

As others see it: It's long past time for transportation funding deal
A transportation funding bill should have been agreed to years ago. The delay has caused the cost of road projects to skyrocket. Take the case of the current Highway 22 project between Mankato and Mapleton. MnDOT thought it could pave 12 miles from Blue Earth County Road 90 to Mapleton...

As Others See It: Minnesota’s Sunday liquor-sale vote inspires change
By voting to allow liquor sales on Sunday, the Minnesota Legislature is reminding Americans of why our country remains a superpower and a destination for immigrants from around the world. Wait a minute. Sunday liquor sales means all that? Really?

As Others See It: Kill Legislature’s secret-meeting exemption
Wait, wait, wait. Can this be right? The state of Minnesota way back in 1957 passed a law requiring that meetings of government bodies be open to the public. OK, that part makes good sense: No governing in secret. But the Minnesota Legislature exempts itself from the statute. As much...
