Local View: Find hand-ups, reject handouts, to win America’s war on poverty
“Eliminate poverty through public policy.” That was the topic of University of Wisconsin-Superior Professor Emeritus Bernie Hughes’ Local...

Former Mill VP’s View: Electric franchise fee threatens to close paper mill — and that’d just be the beginning
We often hear about the unexpected consequences of our government’s “financial engineering.” The past month’s actions by our mayor, city financial planners and City Council may contribute to a result none of them expected. I hope the unexpected doesn’t happen, but I suspect...

Local view: Lift restrictions on abortion coverage
It has been 43 years since Roe v. Wade, yet reproductive health care is still out of reach for many people. Bans on abortion coverage for low-income women are some of the harshest remaining barriers to reproductive health care in this country. And with hundreds of new abortion restrictions...

Local view: DNR should seek truth through evidentiary hearings on PolyMet
As a North Shore resident, I was disappointed but not surprised by the Duluth City Council’s inability to stand up to PolyMet and request an evidentiary hearing. Perhaps neither the council nor the community have realized yet how serious the need is for an evidence-based hearing...

Local view: Stand up to menthol marketing in Duluth, elsewhere
In late July, the delegates attending the national convention of the NAACP passed a historic resolution supporting state and local efforts to restrict the sales of menthol and other flavored cigarettes due to the fact that those tobacco products are predominantly marketed to the African-American...

Local view: Eliminate poverty through public policy
I’ve been told I have way too much to say about economic inequality and the growing chasm between haves and have-nots. Hard for me to accept this when Americans keep claiming to be living in a democracy and still believe in the old proverb, “Do unto others as you would have others...

Local view: We all should work to create culture of mutual respect
Human lives matter. No race, religion, age or ethnicity has or should have priority. American society allows the legal killing of approximately 3,000 unborn babies per day. My tax dollars help pay for the slaughter. And black babies are aborted at a much higher rate than white babies....

Local view: Keillor leaves indelible mark with his commentary on rural America
Mark Twain. Will Rogers. Garrison Keillor. Each generation seems blessed with a humorist who, instead of standing off in the distance and pointing out the incongruities in American life, stands shoulder to shoulder with ordinary men and women. Our homegrown satirists have descended...

Local view: Big, beautiful wall needed north of Hinckley, too

Local View: Tribal nations take a stand to preserve, protect our water
I took a lot of Indian studies classes in college. I remember one of my professors excitedly remarking that due to the complex web of federal laws and treaties (and, I would add, the inherent legacy of indigenous people), tribal sovereign nations will end up being on the frontline...

Reader's view: Does Duluth School Board need to grease all the squeaky wheels?
The Duluth School Board, at the urging of some parents, decided to spend nearly half a million dollars to replace rubber mulch currently being used on area school playgrounds — to protect the “health” of our children (“Duluth school district moves ahead with plans to replace...

Local view: Evidentiary hearing on PolyMet necessary, sensible
Late last month a citizens group in Duluth called for an evidentiary hearing on PolyMet’s forthcoming permit-to-mine application, wanting to hear all the facts before a decision is made. PolyMet has announced its intent to file “within weeks.” Frank Ongaro of Mining Minnesota...

Local View: Children always pay the price
It’s always the children who suffer because of the actions of adults. Whatever the situation, the adults are the problem and the kids pay the price. Warfare and terrorism. During the “sanctioned killings” that we call war, how do you explain to children why bombs are falling...

Local View: The ‘Family of Man’ marks Duluth’s last days of summer
The footprint of summer in Duluth could be summed up with a capital F for Festival: a weekend series with an overflowing waterfront usually laced with impatient drivers, the honking of horns and loud music floating across the bay, giving the neighborhood across the canal a sense of...
