As others see it: In need of a hard lesson?
Under Minnesota's constitution, the governor cannot arbitrarily set the budget. The Minnesota Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that Gov. Tim Pawlenty's unallotment cuts were illegal. In simple terms, the court reminded the state and its leaders to operate within its constitutional...

Letter: Time for Pawlenty to get home and to get work
Traveling across the country on his presidential expedition, Tim Pawlenty has been courting the tea partiers. Note that the Tea Party folks assert their mission is the preservation of liberty and the U.S. Constitution. Paradoxically, Pawlenty freed his calendar for visits to New...

As others see it: Fire-safety fund raid is bad idea
Minnesota firefighters are crying foul at one of Gov. Tim Pawlenty's proposed budget balance moves -- a government switch-a-roo. Pawlenty has proposed as part of his supplemental budget a plan to raid a fire-safety training fund and transfer nearly $10 million over two years to...

Editorial: There's still time to regroup
To say this session of the Minnesota Legislature is off to a poor start would be an understatement. Gov. Tim Pawlenty's proposed budget, which slashes local government aid, spending on health care programs and services, funds for state colleges and universities and more -- all while...

Letter: Unallotment, LGA cuts were wrong
I read the Fairmont Sentinel editorial this morning (Monday) in the Daily Globe and I can maybe agree with some comments but am disgusted by others. In my view, Gov. Pawlenty overstepped his position as the head of the executive branch of the State of Minnesota. By doing the unallotments...
