Editorial: Latest 518 bond referendum too good to turn down
A little more than two years ago, District 518 put forth a $79 million bond referendum to voters that failed by a nearly two-thirds to one-third margin. That referendum, if passed, would have resulted in the construction of a new high school, reconfiguration of the grades for other...

Editorial: 'Necessity defense' could unleash chaos

In 13 days, statewide voters will go to the polls for Minnesota’s primary election. There’s even more at stake, however, in Worthington Independent School District 518. Once again, district voters are being asked to consider a bond referendum that, if approved, would result in...

A transportation funding bill should have been agreed to years ago. The delay has caused the cost of road projects to skyrocket. Take the case of the current Highway 22 project between Mankato and Mapleton. MnDOT thought it could pave 12 miles from Blue Earth County Road 90 to Mapleton...
