Reader's View: Calling for evidentiary hearing is cruel
Contrary to recent paranoid calls for an evidentiary hearing on PolyMet, the time for such a hearing was five to 10 years ago. Not now. Calling for a hearing now is nothing more than a left-wing, obstructionist move to block the project the Iron Range people so dearly need now. Our...

I'm a resident of the 4th City Council District in Duluth, and I'll be voting in the City Council primary election on Sept. 12. I will not be voting for incumbents Barb Russ, Howie Hanson or Zack Filipovich, as they voted against a council resolution asking the Minnesota Department...

Reader's View: Clean water too valuable to trust mining companies
Despite the need for more economic opportunity across the Iron Range and in Northeastern Minnesota, the prospect of sulfide-ore copper-nickel mining is not the answer for the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
