Our view: Plan now for perfect evening at the Wade
The ballpark is old-school. Vintage. Something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. A brickyard named in honor of a legendary skipper, Frank Wade,...

Our view: Orange a call to end gun violence
No matter where you stand on the gun debate, you can agree that an innocent person being shot is a tragedy that should not happen. And you can participate in events in Duluth and elsewhere today being held to remember those victims and to mark National Gun Violence Awareness Day,...

Our view: Don’t be so quick to judge
Frightening moments in Duluth and Cincinnati over the weekend left small children in peril, the adults responsible for them no doubt shaken and agonizing, to say the least, and an uncomfortable lot of others far too quick to judge and criticize. Could the parents or guardians involved...

Our view: Historically busy summer on deck
Are you ready? Memorial Day is in the books. It’s summer, the season we cherish — oh, those glorious few days. And this summer in Duluth promises to be like no other. Some years we have an air show. Other years a tall ships festival. This year we have both. Plus the 40th anniversary...

Our View: A day to honor, not celebrate
The bloody battles of the Civil War were still raging when women in the South began decorating the graves of Confederate soldiers. After the...

Our View: Lincoln’s call remains unanswered
Unlike Veterans Day, which honors all who answered America’s call to military service, Memorial Day honors those who died in war. Memorial Day forces us to remember that war is about sacrifice — and the ultimate sacrifice, death. President Abraham Lincoln’s 272-word Gettysburg...

Our view: Take away tax breaks for tobacco
Accused of being members of a do-nothing Legislature, but lawmakers in St. Paul this session did get something done — unfortunately. They approved an omnibus tax bill that included $35 million in tax breaks over the next three years for the tobacco industry. The breaks include lowering...

Our view: Legislature fails Minnesotans again
The 2016 Minnesota legislative session ended the way many of us feared it would but also the way it just couldn’t. Moments after midnight Sunday it went the way most games of chicken do, with a crash and a burn. And wasn’t that what this session was, another big game of chicken,...

Our view: Decade-old compromise remains best option
For almost a decade and a half, Alison Clarke has been a grassroots warrior for Duluth’s lakefront. She has advocated relentlessly to preserve public access to the water east from about 20th Avenue East and for a promised stretch of Lakewalk there that, frustratingly, never was...

Our view: Food access a worthy goal
Duluth knows well the challenges and barriers faced by some in being able to buy fresh fruits and veggies, meats that aren’t processed and other healthier foods. Thousands of us don’t live anywhere near an outlet that sells groceries, other than gas station convenience stores....

Our view: Does Waukesha have a choice?
If Waukesha’s water situation is as dire as its mayor says, the southeastern Wisconsin city really doesn’t have much choice but to accept terms of an offer from eight Great Lakes states, including Minnesota, and two Canadian provinces. Mayor Shawn Reilly said in a March commentary...
