Editorial: Re-elect Tim Walz

Letter: Hagedorn would offer needed regulation reform
By Leroy Vetsch, Brewster Just because Congressman Tim Walz voted for the Waters of the United States Regulatory Overreach Protection Act of 2014 doesn’t mean he really is standing up for farmers. This bill was sponsored by Republicans and was designed to keep the Environmental...
