As others see it: Legalize Sunday liquor sales

Letter: State's payment rate to nursing homes must increase
Two weeks ago, legislative leaders in St. Paul released budget targets that should be of grave concern for Minnesota seniors and anyone who has a grandparent or parent in Long Term Care, or a family member who works in the profession. While many in St. Paul have expressed bipartisan...

As others see it: Time for all-day K
Then a principal at Duluth's Homecroft Elementary, Bill Gronseth saw with absolute clarity what studies had been touting for years: All-day kindergarten, as opposed to just half days, gave kids a jump-start on learning and led to remarkable academic success. ... So, in 2009, following...

Letter: Dayton's latest budget proposals are too costly
With six weeks left in the legislative session, Gov. Mark Dayton and legislative leadership have begun releasing updated budget proposals and spending targets. I'm troubled by the proposals' increased spending. Over the past two years, we greatly improved Minnesota's financial standing...

Letter: Here's a different kind of North Korea policy
A pre-emptive strike on North Korea would draw other nations into the conflict. Anything that makes the North Korean government lose face may cause them to commit suicide and take half the world with them. It would be better to use a B-52 and drop a few carloads of rice on Pyongyang....
