As others see it: Sell beer, wine on Sundays

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,"...

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...
