Davis, Day say off-shore drilling would help farmers
REDWOOD FALLS -- A southern Minnesota congressional challenger used a Tuesday farm forum to drill home his support for off-shore oil drilling. Republican challenger Brian Davis in the 1st Congressional District, serving most of southern Minnesota, repeatedly told the FarmFest audience...

Editorial: Davis in the hunt
Brian Davis may be a political novice -- he has never held public office -- but he certainly appears poised to give incumbent First District Rep. Tim Walz a good run in November. Davis has been on the scene raising money in his bid to challenge Walz for nearly a year now and, perhaps...

Letter: Walz made right vote on energy act
As the price of gasoline is hitting our billfolds every time we fill up at the pump, the big oil companies are reporting record profits. In February 2008, Exxon Mobil, the world's largest publicly traded oil company, set a U.S. record by earning $40.61 billion in 2007. According...

Minnesotans need real solutions to gas prices
ROCHESTER -- As the price of oil and gas reach record levels and Minnesotans feel it in their pocketbooks, and small businesses in their bottom line, it's the same old story in Congress: The Blame Game. Congressman Walz's strategy, based on his column last week, is to lay the blame...

Column: Congressman calls 'Big Oil' on the carpet
WASHINGTON -- Heading out to the lake for the weekend will be a more expensive proposition this summer, as Minnesotans feel the pain at the pump. Whether you drive a gas guzzler or a hybrid vehicle, the cost of gas hurts. My hope was that as oil prices rose, so too would the ire...

Letter: Walz stands up for first amendment
Brian Davis has lately taken to criticizing Rep. Tim Walz's affirmative vote on the Employee Free Choice Act, saying it was "simply un-American, taking away the right to secret ballot." Perhaps Brian Davis should update his education of the First Amendment, which gives us as Americans...

Letter: Walz missed mark on energy act vote
Why did Congressman Tim Walz vote against energy development off the continental shelf of the United States? H.R. 3089, the "No More Excuses Energy Act of 2007," failed to pass on a vote of 226 to 183. If China can drill for oil near the continental shelf of Florida, why can't our...

Letter: Walz praised for Farm Bill work
It is the conventional wisdom that nothing good can come out of Washington. Recently, 318 U.S. representatives, including our own Tim Walz, proved that wrong. An overwhelming, bipartisan majority of Congress voted for the new Farm Bill.

Editorial: Bush's veto should be overridden
As expected, President Bush vetoed the Farm Bill on Wednesday, an effort that effectively repudiated years worth of work for legislators in both the Democratic and Republican parties -- work that ultimately resulted in overwhelming support for the bill in both the House and Senate. Fortunately,...

This week, Congress is voting on the new farm bill. Rep. Tim Walz should be commended for his hard work in crafting that bill, using ideas from farmers across the district. Walz held 14 public forums around the area to gather the sentiment and views of area farmers. Included in...
