Letter: Greg Clausen deserves to be re-elected
One of this community’s greatest assets is the Minnesota Zoo. It is a tourist draw and along with that a local business stimulant. During the last session, Senator Greg Clausen managed to get nearly all of the zoo’s revenue requests into the Senate bill. Unfortunately, the legislature...

Letter: Playing well with others
This election season, I’ve received more than my share of political flyers in the mail. “Vote for this candidate because they are a good community person.” “Don’t vote for this candidate because they’ll leave you homeless and jobless.” Now, I’m being a bit sarcastic,...

Deanna Weniger: Got a good mosquito trap? You could make a fortune
Our house, being a semi-rural property, attracts a lot of bugs. My husband, who claims utter contempt for all things insectoid, has turned our property into a hellacious final resting place for the creepy crawlies. The chicken coop attracts its share of flies. And with the flies come...

Chuck Brooks: What would you do differently in high school?
You know the expression, "Youth is wasted on the young"? I never understood that declaration growing up. We'd hear it enough on television and in the movies and even sometimes from the very adults we knew. I don't remember exactly when the meaning came home to roost with me, but it...

Letter: Holly Jenkins is the right choice for District 4
In the recent televised Dakota County Commissioner Candidate forum hosted by the Dakota County Regional Chamber of Commerce, candidates were asked why people should vote for them over the other candidate. Former State Representative Joe Atkins encouraged people to vote based upon...

Letter: Anna Wills continues to fight for Dakota County transportation needs

Letter: Democrats no longer represent the little guy
When did the roles of the major political parties get reversed? For many decades Republicans were blamed or credited for supporting the goals of businesses and allegedly drawing fat cat donors. A careful scrutiny of current donors shows that the biggest political PACs, labor unions,...

Deanna Weniger: Jury duty is no laughing matter
Getting called for jury duty is a learning experience. I learned how to follow hand-drawn signs down ripped up roads to the appropriate parking ramp in St. Paul. The construction had my Google maps girl arguing with herself. I learned a lot about my fellow jurors, who for whatever...

Letter: Death by a thousand paper cuts
I have nine grandchildren and worry that they will be able to find jobs. Small businesses create the majority of jobs in the United States, and one problem they face is job-killing regulations. Those regulations reduce small business capital that is needed for growth and job creation....

Letter: Sen. Greg Clausen is a leader who listens, learns and works
Greg Clausen is running for reelection to the Minnesota Senate. Let us recognize the real thing, Greg Clausen, when we see it, and let's vote to re-elect this outstanding public servant. I've known him for over 30 years – he was the principal at Rosemount High School and earlier...

Pat Rupp: Mom and P.T. were right
Maplewood police reported last week that five of its citizens had been scammed out of $180,000 over the past couple of weeks. Perhaps that fact alone is enough to get one's attention, but the details are even more eye-popping. One poor soul contracted with a company online that would...

Chuck Brooks: Sharing the story of our school
Maybe about six years ago, on a Homecoming Friday at school, I was preparing to emcee the Homecoming Pep Fest/Coronation that afternoon in the gym. I must have been in a real "homecoming" mood, complete with rah-rah and sis-boom-bah spirit. I wanted to do something different and special....

Faith Notes: Feel Free to disturb our Lord
When you walk down a hotel hallway, what do you often see hanging from the doorknobs? Little signs that say, "Do No Disturb" or "Come Back Later." What an accurate description of the attitude of many people toward the claims of Christ and God's promises for us. Not only on Sunday...
