Letter: Preserve College in the high school
Good column in the Star Tribune (11/24/16) on College in the High School (aka Concurrent Enrollment) - but there's more to the story. First the non-elected Higher Learning Commission has set the wheels in motion to virtually destroy one of the most successful opportunities for public...

Commentary: Gorgeous legs in the White House
After the Trump election victory, I was patting myself on the back. After all, in my end-of-the-year predictions last December, I told you that whichever candidate carried the state of Ohio would be elected President. Trump not only won Ohio, he won it by 454,983 votes or 8.6 points....

Letter: Social isolation problematic during winter season
Almost everyone in Minnesota enjoys the first snowfall. The sky is decorated with fluffy, white snow. Crystal flakes fall softly and cover the ground in a tranquil blanket of white. Dusted pine trees create a winter wonderland. As the season of winter unfolds days become shorter,...

Bust your holiday budget already?
So how did you do? Not that you can let down your guard now. On the heels of a four-day weekend filled with door-buster deals, early bird specials, shop-local guilt and Black Friday sales came Monday's Cyber-Monday discounts. Which raises the question: How are you — and your...

Letter to the Editor: Next chapter
One thing is certain following this election cycle. Conventional strategies and candidates need to get in tune with this rapidly changing world. Trump on the Republican side and Sanders on the Democrat side created excitement that brought millions of people to the polls with a simple...

Letter to the editor: Stop the hate
I have been astounded by the constant barrage of hate crimes occurring in the United States over the recent months. A person cannot watch the news without hearing about some form of harassment, threat or violence being committed against a person. The Southern Poverty Law Center has...

Guest Editorial: Trump shouldn't pursue Clinton
History has been kind to President Gerald Ford's pardon of President Richard Nixon, which happened only a month after Nixon resigned from the presidency. That was not true at the time —1974. Nor was it true two years later, when the the pardon played a big role in Ford's losing...

Small Business Saturday encourages us to shop local
The Saturday after Thanksgiving is known as Small Business Saturday — a day that encourages people to shop at their local small businesses. Small Business Saturday was founded in 2010 as part of the Shop Small movement through American Express to encourage consumers to support...

Commentary: Put life in neutral, enjoy the simple things
Sometimes we just need to lay down in the grass, take in the sun and look at the big beautiful sky. Something so simple doesn't cost anything. There's value in lying on your back and picking out cloud figures on sun-filled days like we had Sunday. It's okay to throw life in neutral...

Editorial: One presidential election is all it takes to lose our minds?
Since Tuesday's election, it appears people are losing their minds. Anti-Trump protesters are rioting in the streets in a way never seen before following a presidential election; there are reports of white children and teenagers tormenting minorities with racial slurs in schools in...

Commentary: Keeping our promises to veterans
Each year on Veterans Day, I think about the military men and women I had the honor to meet when I took part in several overseas USO tours before I became a U.S. Senator. Those tours not only gave me the chance to help entertain our troops stationed in places like Iraq, Kuwait and...

Enterprise Editorial: Local programs do well in honoring our veterans
Veterans Day programs at Park Rapids Century School, Menahga School and Nevis School are each unique in its own way and all carry the clear message of the importance in honoring our veterans. The programs offer an opportunity for students and the general public to learn what Veterans...

Enterprise editorial: Can we now please move past all the negativity?
I'm an idiot. You're an idiot. We're all idiots. That's what this election, and which candidate we support, comes down to if you get caught up in the social media hysteria. Hillary is a liar, she's a crook and anyone who votes for her should absolutely be ashamed of themselves. Donald...

Letter: Clinton opposite of what is described in letter
I would like to respond to John and Karen LaFond's opinion letter in the Oct 22 Enterprise in which they listed the many reasons they supported Hillary Clinton. The Hillary Clinton they described certainly sounded like a great candidate to support if you're a democrat. I wonder if...
