Judge says tribal treaties don’t apply to routing of new pipeline in northern Minnesota
An administrative law judge has rejected claims that 19th century treaties give Native Americans a say in choosing a route for a new crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota. Honor the Earth, an environmental group led by Native American activist Winona LaDuke, favors a different...

Reader's view: Solar power can help us stop pollution from coal power plants
When I want to use an appliance in my home that requires electricity or when I want lighting in a room I just flip a switch. When my electrical power is compromised — by a storm, for example — I conveniently call Minnesota Power and I am courteously informed that a crew will be...

Minnesota legislators' oil safety provisions avoid pipelines
ST. PAUL — Minnesota lawmakers are on the verge of considering a bill that would help prevent oil train disasters and respond better if they occur, but the bill includes nothing about pipeline safety. That does not set well with Gov. Mark Dayton and House Transportation Finance...

Reader's view: We should ask ourselves key questions on pipelines
A May 5 letter in the Grand Forks (N.D.) Herald, written in response to an April 22 Herald editorial that was reprinted in the News Tribune (“Keystone XL delays get embarrassing”), asked two key questions concerning the Keystone XL pipeline: “Can we be assured in an easement...

Reader's view: Lawmakers need to boost pipeline inspection
With a number of proposals for new oil pipelines here in Minnesota and across the country, there rightly has been an increase in scrutiny over just how safe pipelines are. The Minnesota Legislature is considering legislation that would provide additional resources to improve public...

Many “environmentalists” object to the Keystone XL and other pipelines. Even President Barack Obama doesn’t seem to know what to do about pipelines. Perhaps I can help. I manage and am one-third owner of two farm properties in Kentucky, in the family since about 1944, that...

Reader's view: Why are natural gas prices so high in Duluth?
I would like to know why my gas bill skyrocketed this year. Being retired, I can’t believe the price we have to pay. Last year’s bill at this time was $140, and now I got a bill for $220. Just how much of a percentage more are we paying? Sure we got a 1.2 percent rate increase...
