Editorial: Above all, put our kids first
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...

Editorial: Now's the time to get behind school board referendum
In our Jan. 13 edition, we published a story on Worthington Mayor MIke Kuhle’s support for the $68 million Independent School District 518 referendum, which will be decided upon Feb. 13. In the article, Kuhle also condemned the tactics of Worthington Citizens for Progress, which...

Editorial: Newspapers remain the trusted source for news, advertising
Today's front page has no news on it. Subscribers already know that, of course, because it’s quite possible they gasped when they unfurled this edition on their doorstep. For those who are shocked or disappointed, let the feeling sink in for a moment, because this is what would...

As others see it: Newspapers still top choice for news
Those who believe newspapers are becoming a relic of the past should update their thinking. Survey after survey shows today’s local newspapers are still highly regarded and heavily relied upon for providing information residents trust and demand.

As others see it: It's long past time for transportation funding deal
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...

As Others See It: Minnesota’s Sunday liquor-sale vote inspires change
By voting to allow liquor sales on Sunday, the Minnesota Legislature is reminding Americans of why our country remains a superpower and a destination for immigrants from around the world. Wait a minute. Sunday liquor sales means all that? Really?

As Others See It: Kill Legislature’s secret-meeting exemption
Wait, wait, wait. Can this be right? The state of Minnesota way back in 1957 passed a law requiring that meetings of government bodies be open to the public. OK, that part makes good sense: No governing in secret. But the Minnesota Legislature exempts itself from the statute. As much...
