Our View: Jessup was instrumental in engineering city
Woodbury, as we now know it, didn't exist in 1985. The retail shopping Woodbury is now known for was limited, as was population in the little east metro city of about 15,000. That was what the community looked like when David Jessup arrived here as Woodbury's first city engineer....

Our View: Take a bow, volunteers

Our View: Apply common sense to long debate in Afton
Politicians have a tendency to talk about "common sense" solutions. All too often, that reference is a mere code word used to offer simplistic answers to complex problems. Yet, a genuine common-sense solution is just what's needed for our friends in Afton. For months now, Afton...

Our View: Context key in East Ridge poem controversy

Our View: Wolff left gift, model to follow
Thirty years ago, Dick Wolff gave Woodbury a gift. Along with his wife Sharon, he opened the Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf in 1983. Today, that gift continues giving to community members, though its founder has passed on. Dick died last week at the age of 78. He leaves...

Our View: School Board makes good pick for short term
Talk about a pleasant problem to have. When the South Washington County School Board sought applicants for an 11-month term on the board, 14 district residents stepped forward. That was a bit of a surprise given the short stint; it's fair to question whether such a brief tenure...
