Reader Opinion: After the election
The election is over and we are left to deal with a new set of realities. The hold that the closed system of the established economic elite had on this nation for the last several decades has been shaken. Everyone should have been able to see this coming with the obscene income inequalities...

Reader Opinion: Vote conservative
If you think that our moral values, health care cost and our economy are bad now think of how bad they will if the "liberal/progressives" get in and stack the Supreme Court with like minded judges. Locally we can do our part by voting for fiscally and moral conservative candidates....

Chinese steel comment fires up Nolan - Mills 8th District race
CHISHOLM - A national media report in which Republican Stewart Mills defended Donald Trump’s use of foreign steel raised the hackles of incumbent Democrat Rick Nolan on Tuesday as the hotly contested race for Minnesota’s 8th Congressional District entered its final days. A Roll...

Reader Opinion: Don't repeat history
This congressional election has common ground with the one eight years ago. Jim Oberstar was in office for four-plus terms and was bending over backwards to help the citizens of northern Minnesota. The voters decided he was in too long so the Republicans nominated Chip Cravaack to...

Reader Opinion: Nolan or Mills?
To make an informed decision in any election, you need to compare candidates. You can look at who built a business? Nolan has and Mills inherited one from his father and uncles. Who is a respected and experienced public leader? Nolan is and Mills has little or no experience.

Reader Opinion: Mills for Minnesota
I support Stewart Mills for Congress in our upcoming election. I have spent over 32 years wearing the military uniform of our country. Our military has been my extended family. Stewart Mills supports our military and our veterans. His opponent, Rick Nolan, has voted against funding...

Reader Opinion: Vote Heintzeman, Mills
"Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but My (Jesus) words will never pass away." Matthew 24:35. Dems want Heintzman's hide bad, costly yards signs! Keep Josh's integrity in St. Paul. We need Stewart in Washington to shake some cobwebs out of there, new blood and ideas. I'm not saying...

Reader Opinion: Re-elect Nolan
Stewart Mills seems a little confused on free trade. When in public, he says he doesn't support free trade agreements like TPP because it would ship good paying jobs overseas. But in private conversations with wealthy donors, he's been caught saying that he is in favor of free trade....

Reader Opinion: Threat to democracy
Voters in northeast Minnesota should determine who we elect, not outside groups throwing money at candidates trying to influence the outcome! Most people say they hate "negative ads" but those ads appear to work and that's why they continue to be used. Outside groups have spent $2.2...
