As others see it: Legalize Sunday liquor sales
It's as predictable as champagne at midnight on New Year's Eve. The Sunday liquor issue has surfaced again at the Minnesota Legislature. And, once again, proposed legislation to legalize Sunday liquor sales looks like it's already dead. But last week things got weirder when an attempt...

Editorial: 'Dead in the water'
The headline on Monday's press release from Lewis & Clark Regional Water System was prescient. "Lewis & Clark RWS Responds to Federal FY14 Budget Allocation: $3.2 Million Leaves Project 'Dead in the Water.'" These laments are - sadly - nothing news for a project that is such an integral...

As others see it: Time to expand social media investigations
