As others see it: Don't be so quick to judge
Frightening moments in Duluth and Cincinnati over the weekend left small children in peril, the adults responsible for them no doubt shaken and agonizing, to say the least, and an uncomfortable lot of others far too quick to judge and criticize. Could the parents or guardians involved...

As others see it: No tax breaks for tobacco
Already accused of being members of a do-nothing Legislature, but lawmakers in St. Paul this session did get something done — unfortunately. They approved an omnibus tax bill that included $35 million in tax breaks over the next three years for the tobacco industry. The breaks include...

Editorial: Order, please, in St. Paul
Worthington Public Utilities General Manager Scott Hain had a front-row seat to the end of the Minnesota Legislature’s session late Sunday. As Hain explained in Tuesday’s Daily Globe, a day of waiting around ultimately resulted in no bonding bill being passed — and, therefore,...

Editorial: Let's get something done
With just a few short days left in this Minnesota legislative session, there remains no small amount of heavy lifting to be done. The Legislature is mandated to adjourn no later than Monday, and the equivalent of overtime has appeared increasingly likely with each passing day. It...

Editorial: It's time to get moving on bonding
It’s not unusual for meaningful law-making work in St. Paul to be completed at the last minute, and House Republicans are certainly doing their part to try and make sure the same holds true this year. Even though this represents a traditional bonding year for the Minnesota Legislature,...

As others see it: Let's all fight teen drug use
It is hard to imagine an anti-drug message more impactful than one from a grieving parent: “This loss has devastated our lives. We struggle to make sense of how it happened to Tara. Those who have not experienced it cannot know the depth of our grief.” Those simple, raw words...

So important is the office of the president that Europeans often say they wish they could vote in U.S. elections. That won’t be happening anytime soon, of course. But it helps explain what’s happening in Minnesota right now, as the Legislature comes closer to scrapping the presidential...

Guest editorial: Legislation would encourage pharmacists to offer health care
WASHINGTON — Like a lot of Iowans, I grew up in a rural community. In small towns, there might be a pharmacist on Main Street but no doctor. Iowans are used to driving long distances for the doctor while having easier access to a pharmacist. It becomes natural to ask the pharmacist...
