Editorial: Political dawn comes up purple in Minnesota
Funny thing about Minnesota in its glory days — the 1970s, the years when the cover of Time magazine touted “The State That Works”: It was neither a Republican- nor a DFL-dominated time. For example, on its web page devoted to the “Minnesota Miracle” — the 1971 restructuring...

Snow means revisiting some winter etiquette we haven't seen for a couple years. So these tips bear repeating. Please don't relocate your snow into and across any roadway. It's illegal, it's a traffic hazard and it makes your neighbors crazy. With temps all over the map, today's...

Editorial: AYP results losing power
It's funny and touching when Lake Wobegone's creator says, "all the children are above average" in the fictional town. But when test scores come back with that finding in the real world, people wonder if there's something wrong with the test. Likewise when the scores say all the...
