As others see it: The free Vikes-tix perk ‘looks bad’ for all
Those enjoying free Vikings games from lower-level luxury suites controlled by the body that operates shiny new U.S. Bank Stadium seem to see at least a gray area of such a perk. Eleven of 12 suite users identified publicly this week by the authority wrote $200 checks for their seats...

As others see it: Busted your holiday budget already?
So how did you do? Not that you can let down your guard now. On the heels of a four-day weekend filled with door-buster deals, early bird specials, shop-local guilt and Black Friday sales came Monday’s Cyber-Monday discounts. Which raises the question: How are you — and your pocketbook...

As others see it: Sell beer, wine on Sundays
Run out of beer on a Sunday and what do too many Duluthians do? They jump into their cars and motor across a bridge to a liquor store in Superior for more, hoping the few they’ve already had weren’t a few too many. That potentially tragic scenario is an unfortunate reality that...

As others see it: Health is a reform that starts with us
Minnesotans are living in denial. That's the main message we take from a survey of 500 Minnesota residents, conducted in April by the Alliance for a Healthier Minnesota, a coalition of large employers and health organizations. This questionnaire touched on a lot of issues,...

As Others See It: Proposed Bemidji cat policy too onerous
The city of Bemidji, in order to appease a few birdwatchers and solve a few problem cat hoarders, have gone way overboard in proposing an ordinance that essentially intrudes into the private lives of its citizens. The Bemidji City Council will hold the final reading May 17 of an...

As others see it: Cheers for Broadband
It is becoming increasingly apparent that access to affordable Internet broadband is becoming the issue of the 21st century just as bringing electricity to all American homes was the issue of the early 20th century. Computers have eased our lives so much, and has truly brought...

As Others See It: School-year start
It's been one of the great Minnesota debates: Ma and Pa resorts vs. schools. In the 1980s, during an economic downturn, the Legislature passed a law forbidding schools from starting classes before Labor Day. The move came after lobbying from Northern Minnesota resort owners and the...

As Others See It: Feisty Franken fun
There is a feistiness to Minnesota Sen. Al Franken increasingly on display, a feature that doesn't always look smooth but indicates a kind of guttiness and independence worthy of a closer look. In an early February meeting between Democrats and White House officials, Franken "pointedly,"...

In the almost two weeks since officials say a Nigerian man tried to blow up a commercial airliner en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, it's been depressing to watch reactions from U.S. and other governments about aviation security. Depression arose the moment Homeland Security Secretary...

As others see it: An important investment
Government's commitment to the Great Lakes has been com-pared to waves sent to shore only to be taken back again. One wave came with the Great Lakes Compact, an historic agreement to restrict diversions of the lakes' water to arid regions. Minnesota led the way, signing the compact...
