Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Cookbooks are links to food history
Green bean casserole is not a relic of your great-great-great-grandmother's era. It was first served in the 1950s, as part of a group of recipes that makers of canned soup came up with to expand sales. The Cottage Grove Advisory Commission on Historic Preservation is gathering recipes...

Commentary: Good luck trying to follow the Legislature
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota's Legislature is tough to comprehend. Just ask some freshmen Democratic senators who recently became confused as green "yes" and red "no" vote lights began flashing on giant tally boards on either side of the Senate chamber when their tax bill vote was being...

Bulletin letters to the editor: Cottage Grove chicken ordinance, District 833 communication on class changes
Council should be open-minded, support chickens Why is it so hard for our City Council to pass an ordinance allowing chickens and ducks? Many small cities allow them, as does St. Paul and Minneapolis, and more are passing them every year. St. Paul Public Schools Community Education...

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Local trivia test trips up volunteers

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Spring cleaning that helps your neighbors
It doesn't really feel like spring but it is, according to the calendar. That means you should be doing some spring cleaning. Get out those big black plastic bags and fill them with clothes you don't wear. You might wonder why I'm concerned about your spring cleaning. I have an ulterior...

Bulletin letters to the editor: Newport library, Food shelf thank you
Leave library alone The Newport library has been a success in 2012. So say the mayor, council members and most users. But the mayor and a few others also say they want to "catch up" and "figure it out." What's to figure out? Everyone likes what's going on, but at least one council...

Greg Galler Viewpoint: Who are these judges anyway?
"I've never met a judge before." When I hear that from folks I usually respond that it is probably a good thing; most people who meet a judge have had something go wrong in their life. While there are 4.5 million Minnesotans, only 289 are judges. As our work tends to be somewhat...

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Get a jump on spring with seeds in snowbank
A year ago, a Washington County certified master gardener told me that I could grow bedding plants in a snowbank. This sounded crazy but I followed her directions, supplemented by information on the Internet, and it worked. It turned out that she was of sane mind, and by planting...

Viewpoint: Importance of jury's work not overstated
I started the week wondering when I would go free. The jury summons had arrived in my mailbox several months earlier. I postponed the inevitable inconvenience twice, realizing all along I eventually would have to show up. Oh, sure, "it's your civic duty," but who wants a jury duty...
