Commentary: Enbridge is pretending fix is in

Guest Editorial: Expand camera access to courtrooms
For more than 30 years, every state bordering Minnesota — Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota — has allowed cameras in its courtrooms, boosting the public's understanding of legal proceedings and its confidence in the criminal-justice system. And how many documented...

Guest Editorial: Public is best served by full menu of news
Strike up a conversation about press rights and many individuals likely conjure a picture of editors and reporters demanding access to top-secret data from government officials. No doubt, that occurs more often than most people would like to believe. The reality, however, is that...

Letter to Editor: Climate change denier Steve Green must go
I just returned from the Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Summit, which brought together the best minds in the country (and some international experts), and am truly concerned about how climate change and global warming are allowing ever-more dangerous AIS to be able to survive in...

Letter to Editor: Green, Utke blocking clean water efforts
People I meet ask me, "What's going on in Park Rapids? I thought you guys loved clean water?" I tell them we do. We just made a mistake by electing people who don't care. The question is, why are our legislative District 2B Rep. Steve Green and our District 2 Sen. Paul Utke the exceptions...

Letter to Editor: Promote safe schools by promoting gun safety
In addition to the usual tired responses, the recent mass shooting provoked an outcry from young people themselves demanding that their government hear them and take action to address their understandable fears. Their fears are our fears. School administrators, law enforcement and...

Commentary: Summit bringing together AIS experts to protect Minnesota's natural resources

Letter to Editor: Please return cross to chapel
Would the person who "borrowed" the San Damiano cross from Sister Marquite Smith Chapel at CHI St. Joseph's Health on Jan. 22 please return the cross? It has very special, sentimental value to the Catholic families of the hospital. It is the only Catholic item in the chapel. Please...

Letter to Editor: Extreme partisanship on gun issue is sick
I am appalled by the latest school shooting in Florida. I became angry when mental illness was cited as the reason. People with mental health issues are far less likely to engage in gun violence. Higher correlations exist with domestic violence and being a victim of violence.

Letter to Editor: Examples of 'Minnesota Nice'
"Minnesota Nice" is alive and well right here in Park Rapids. On Tuesday, while I was snowblowing my mother's driveway, I found myself looking at the sky. Within seconds, cars stopped to check on me. One very nice lady, who was a nurse, checked to see that I wasn't hurt, and a nice...
