Merry Christmas I Shouted
Merry Christmas I shouted to a woman on the street But she didn't hear me Her misty eyes stared halfway round the globe Where her son was lost in Iraq And never found his way home. Merry Christmas I cried to an old gent in the alley But he didn't hear me He was dragging a cardboard...

Commentary: Jumping jack your way to better days
Stressed? Overwhelmed? Frustrated at your own shortcomings, misgivings and negative behavior? Twenty jumping jacks! That's the latest coping skill passed on to me from my children. They recognize the signs and the jacks work; until my next overreaction to a small problem in this world...

Don't jeopardize jump-start on college
The goal is ensuring the same quality instruction whether a student earning college credits is doing so while still in high school or while at college. The problem is there seems to be little or no evidence to suggest high school students participating in Minnesota's popular and hugely...

Guest editorial: Tax, bonding, health care need special session
As the GOP's legislative leaders and Gov. Mark Dayton discuss a December special session, the debate seems to center around whether a special session will provide a political advantage to one party or the other or whether legislators and the governor should do their job and complete...

Commentary: Don't curse the clouds
Most of the days here for the past week have been dark, dreary, gray, foggy, cloudy and generally overcast, including an all-night rain and a hard cold wind with a low, heavy sky. The damp chill glommed onto your neck and crept down under your shirt. On the foggy nights, you could...

Editorial: Snow is here; use caution and common sense on the roadways
We got the snow we wanted. Let's hope, for the sake of outdoor recreation and winter tourism, there's more to come soon. Snow brings plenty of fun but can also lead to problems on the roadways. These first couple bouts of winter weather, the first of which dumped at least a foot of...

Forum editorial: 75 years ago-Day of Infamy
For a growing segment of Americans, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Dec. 7, 1941, is either a fading or forgotten turning point in U.S. history. And turning point it was. The world changed. The change was profound, not only for the United States, but for the entire...

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...
