Local view: Duluth has much to gain from Denmark visit
In all its splendid isolation, Duluth isn’t flush with cultural and commercial cross-pollination; so Duluthians are fortunate to live in one...

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...

Local view: Minnesota Power is proposing to add about $100 to your annual electric bill

Local view: ‘No joy in Mudville, folks’
Mudville had enough of its citizens bickering at the town hall meetings. It seemed like nothing could ever get accomplished. The election for town mayor was looming, and the town elders decided to try something new to break the impasse and to teach the rebellious voters a lesson....

Local View: It’s time for all of us to focus on solutions
It’s easy to complain, to criticize; it’s easy to label people, to impugn their motives. Questions about race, politics, and religion dominate our media. Protests are proliferating. Then, in an effort to be, or to appear, constructive, we hear, “Let’s have a conversation.”...

Local view: Common desire for sustainable energy fuels cause for hope
Reading three recent columns from three very different writers, I was struck by how much agreement there was, just under the surface, between all of them. When you have a politician taking the long view, a labor leader and a nuclear-power enthusiast all basically agreeing that burning...

Local View: Inside the storm, America sounds great on the concert stage
There has been so much talk of making America great. Or was it already great? All I know is, this past summer, America sounded great, even in the midst of storms. This month, for example, while attending the DECC’s 50th anniversary and while being entertained by R&B legends...

In response: Wisconsin copper-sulfide mine proves the need for caution
I was a plaintiff in a 2012 Clean Water Act lawsuit against Rio Tinto of London, owner of the Flambeau Mine near Ladysmith, Wis. My three-year legal battle was quite contrary to statements made by Karl Everett, president of the Mesabi Geological Society, in his July 23 commentary...
