Reader's View: Legalize marijuana, say goodbye to potholes
I recently spent time traveling the entire state of Colorado, paying little in sales taxes, and I noted that the roads — from Pueblo to Longmont to Estes Park — had few bumps or potholes. In addition, all the streetlights seemed to be lit, there were flowers in each city,...

Reader's View: Duluth ignores roads the locals use
It's really sad when Duluth promises to fix the roads but seems to forget about the streets the locals have to drive on to get to their homes. Some are so bad it practically takes a lifted vehicle to get there. Prime examples are Norton Road and Thurber Road. If you don't believe...

Reader's View: With school funding, equal not equitable
How the Duluth school district uses compensatory-education funding, the topic of the Sunday Opinion cover on Dec. 10, is an equal vs. equitable debate. Using comp-ed funding equally throughout the district is like using money for street improvement equally in both residential neighborhoods...

Reader's view: Duluthians need to 'put up' to fix streets
The term, "put up or shut up," might lack elegance, but it's probably the best way to describe what we as voters need to do regarding our Duluth streets on Nov. 7.

Reader's view: On infrastructure, Duluth can learn from Italy
I recently finished a two-week "villages-of-Italy" tour that made me reflect on street-repair and other infrastructure issues facing Duluth. How have Italians managed to preserve buildings and streets (many paved with bricks and/or stones) that are not only centuries old but, in some...

Reader's View: Let's each 'adopt a pothole'
Recently, there has been a lot of noise on the taxing of this and that to help the city of Duluth with costs. I am still shocked daily driving around Duluth and seeing the massive potholes all over — and we still have no money to repair them? My idea is not to tax the residents....

Reader's View: Fix residents' streets first with new tax
Here's what I would like to know about this new sales tax proposal for street repairs ("Mayor's budget doubles down on streets," Aug. 15): Will the money go to fix my street or my friend's street? Or will it go to fix the streets in Mayor Emily Larson's neighborhood? Or, worse, all...

Reader's view: Cut city spending to pay for streets
I was both heartened and dismayed with Mayor Emily Larson's announcement of increased street maintenance funded by a proposed increase in the sales tax. Yes, there is no question our streets are in a sad state of disrepair. What's not fair is to further hamper our local small businesses...
