Our View / Endorsement: County Board needs Olson’s perspective

Our View: Primary election coming: Ready?
It’s sneaking up on us. Fast. Though it’s still the middle of summer — or at least feels that way — there’s an election just three weeks and one day away. That leaves little time for boning up on the candidates and getting into that local- and statewide-politics frame of...

Our view: Follow the process for Twin Metals
The opposition is pretty easy to understand when the talk is of plopping a heavy-industrial, metal-and-concrete mining operation right on the edge of the unspoiled, still-pristine Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. But there’s one big problem with the opposition right now to...

Our View: Withhold judgment, demand solutions
This is happening far too frequently. Baton Rouge. St. Paul. And that’s just this week. So far this week. Enough. No matter whose side you’re on — with the police because officers aren’t being respected and their orders aren’t being followed as they should be, or with the...

Our view: Be alert; it’s election season
All those ear-to-ear grinning, hand-grabbing, stickers-sticking politicians in your Fourth of July parade should have tipped you off: It’s election season. Yes, yes, Election Day is still four months off, but Minnesota’s primary election — to narrow the fields of candidates...
