Bulletin letters to the editor: Gay marriage approval, urban chickens
Schoen, Sieben showed courage with gay marriage yes votes Leadership, courage and integrity are all words I have not been able to use when describing the behavior of our elected officials at both the national and state levels these past number of years. But that has changed for me. I...

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Not just history, but the stories that go with it
Listening to a talk given by Robert Vogel, who has a treasure trove of knowledge about south Washington County, is like meeting someone who's interesting at a party. Whether he's talking to one person or 20, he communicates an intimate view of history. It's as if he's telling you...

Denny McNamara Viewpoint: 'Tax the rich' means 'tax everyone'
As the 2013 session nears completion, I am becoming more and more disappointed with the number of taxes and fees legislative Democrats are choosing to raise on all hard-working taxpayers. They told us they were going to "tax the rich," so none of us were all that surprised when they...

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: 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...
