Local View: It’s time for Washington to make America whole again
Disgusting. A race to the bottom. None of the above. These are samples of the epithets that preceded our presidential election. Before rendering...

Local View: The real ‘welfare kings’ are the 1 percenters
According to righteous right-wing conservatives, too much welfare is being given to too many people who are either too lazy to work or cagey...

Local View: Renewable energy (unlike nuclear option) only worsens our carbon footprint
As Paul Lorenzini wrote in “Saving the Environment from Environmentalism,” “We are living with an inherited environmental dogma that reflects old thinking and flawed premises.” As a case in point, Eric Enberg’s Local View column Oct. 3 in the News Tribune (“Far from a...

Local View: Expanding EITC will keep thousands from being taxed into poverty
When I was on Capitol Hill in the summer of 2015, I never realized the policies we discussed might wind up affecting me. I was in Washington urging Congress to protect key provisions of tax credits that lift millions of Americans out of poverty each year. At the end of 2015, our senators...

Local View: Pipeline vandalism has many consequences
In recent days I’ve read how the oil pipelines of several prominent, large pipeline companies have been shut down or where efforts were made to shut them down by people and groups opposed to their sheer existence. If I might make at least a generalization, the people and groups...

Local View: If ‘none of the above’ wins, reforms can follow
What might we learn from the 2016 presidential campaign? Two candidates emerged, both with the highest negative ratings of all time. One, unfortunately, will become our next president. The process is seriously flawed when such negativity prevails. What if in addition to voting either...

Local View: Shared knowledge necessary to cope with chronic illness
Today, almost half of adult Americans, 133 million of us, suffer from a chronic illness. Among Medicare beneficiaries 65 and older, the statistics are worse; more than half are being treated for multiple chronic conditions. Our children are the first generation in decades predicted...

Local View: Acknowledging bias is the first step to moving past it
I’m white. I’m male. I was raised in a white household by two white parents within a predominantly white community. I admit I carry implicit bias. But I believe I can say that confidently without compromising my character. The National Center for State Courts defines implicit...

Local View: City must consider overall impact of Minnesota Power fee increase
Winston Churchill said, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Our mayor and City Council need to ponder that wisdom. I was born and raised in Duluth, and my parents still live in the house where I grew up in Lester Park. I remember the mid-’80s when...

Local View: Far from a drain, solar power a huge asset to society
As the country increasingly transitions to a renewable-energy future, many utilities are ferociously resisting solar energy, often claiming homeowners who have solar arrays are pushing the costs of maintaining the grid onto other customers. Some utilities have placed punitively high...
