Judy Spooner Viewpoint: No waffling when it comes to recycling
"Did you throw the newspaper away?" asked husband Gary. I told him I put it in the recycle bin but offered to retrieve it. We have gotten a daily morning newspaper since the day we married. Gary, a St. Paul boy, wouldn't be without it. "I've tried to figure out how you know that...

Bulletin letter to the editor: Schoen's gun stance reason enough to oust him in next election
An open letter to Rep. Dan Schoen: Do you support the Second Amendment? Since your name appears as an author on at least four bills and you are actively supporting others that are infringing upon the rights of the Second Amendment, you obviously do not.

Bulletin letter to the editor: If it's 'right and wrong,' hold both parties accountable
I am writing in reply to Will Labovitch's letter ("GOP needs to be held accountable") in the Dec. 5 edition of the Bulletin. It is amazing to me that there are so many people who are concerned about right and wrong but seem to only focus on the issues when they are the ones who have...

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: Grocery line decisions will affect school lunch line preferences
Whenever the subject of childhood obesity comes up, someone will say, "They ought to do something about school lunches." Well, they have, at least in School District 833, but kids still have too much access before and after school to cheese puffs, chips and French fries. The changes...

Bulletin editorial: Transparency suffers in Newport's internal hiring process
Newport City Council members looked internally when they filled the city administrator job earlier this month. The process was so internal, however, that Newport residents likely did not even know their elected council members interviewed a candidate they later would appoint. That's...

Judge Greg Galler Viewpoint: Gun debate must acknowledge previous court decisions
The recent heartbreaking murders of school children in Connecticut have prompted a lot of discussion regarding guns and the rights of citizens to own, possess, or use them. What constitutional rights do citizens have regarding firearms? Can the government deny individual citizens...

Judy Spooner's column viewpoint: Unlike the Sippy, some inventions don't stack up
When cable television stations hit the January doldrums, they resort to "Top 10" programming. Shows include the top 10, or top 100, snack foods, places to visit or inventions. I started to make my own list of top 10 inventions but I ended up with a list of inventions that didn't...

Letter to editor: McNamara feeding constituents "political cow"
I would like to thank Rep. Denny McNamara for his history lesson of the last two years in the Minnesota Legislature. He sent it out last week in his newsletter. He also sent it out to this paper a few weeks ago. He's telling us how he and his GOP co-workers did such a good job balancing...

Keith Jacobus Viewpoint: School District 833 strives to balance safety and positive school environments
Starting school after the winter break always brings a mix of excitement for the second half of the year and dismay that the mid-year break is over. We ended 2012 with another reminder of the stark reality that schools are not impervious to violent acts; heinous acts that challenge...

Judy Spooner Viewpoint: School District 833's latest audit report is worth a look
There's nothing like curling up on a cold winter's night in front of the fire. Reading an audit report while basking in the firelight is the best kind of reading material I can think of, but most of you would prefer a good book. The School District 833 audit report is usually presented...

Pete Orput Viewpoint: Love our kids -- lock up your firearms
The month of December was devastating for at least two families in the Twin Cities. Both families had a child find a gun in the home and shoot his sibling; one of those cases ended with a 4-year-old shooting his 2-year-old brother to death and the other involved a 2-year-old shot...
