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...

Editorial: Biosciences one of Worthington's many assets
It’s often easy for Worthington residents to lament what they don’t have in their community, or ways in which the city could be a more appealing place to live. While it may be true that Worthington is by no means Utopia, we shouldn’t forget that we’ve got plenty to brag about....

Letter: Schomacker supports new RFA loan bill
A bill that will replenish funds for the Rural Finance Authority (RFA) loan program has been approved in the Minnesota House. I voted in favor the measure. The RFA can be vital to our local economy. I’m glad to see we’ve prioritized the program and I was happy to support it. Funds...

As Others See It: The fog of fog forecasts
Weather folklore includes the wildly unscientific notion that fog will be followed in about 90 days by storms. By that reckoning, fog in early April means nasty thunderstorms in late June or early July; and fog in early October is a warning to prepare for a blizzard in late December....
