Killing deer in parks … disgusting and contrary to the “expert opinion”, not safe or imperative.

Destroying a heron rookery for greed … disgusting and so unnecessary.

A reader recently wrote about the opioid crisis and what Sen. Klobuchar is doing to combat it. As senior regional outreach director for Sen. Klobuchar, I know addressing this epidemic is a top priority for her.
John Weiss recently penned a disturbing article about algae mucking up the seven flood-control reservoirs around Rochester, making them much less friendly for recreational users.

Maintaining and operating an old golf course for a very few when the needs of the community for youth activity and a real water park … selfish and yes, disgusting.

What to read next
