As others see it: Spring is here at last
Winter's ending this week with the lion roar of a west central Minnesota blizzard, which made many a little bit grumpy. Many looked out the window Wednesday morning and saw only bone-chilling temperatures with higher snow banks. It sure doesn't look like spring, does it? Spring...

Editorial: Take same-sex marriage issue to public
It remains to be seen whether same-sex marriage will be legalized in Minnesota during the current legislative session, but we think the effort to do so is a misplaced priority. After all, even though there's no budget in place yet, there has already been plenty of legislative time...

As others see it: It's time for a woman
It's high time Iowa was represented by a woman on Capitol Hill, even if she's made of marble. Though Iowa has never elected a woman to Congress, some Iowa lawmakers are making an effort to get gender balance in the Capitol's National Statuary Hall. Each state is allowed two statues...
