OUR VIEW: Be safe, smart during homecoming
Two Woodbury schools are settling in for one of the most high-spirited times of the year: homecoming. East Ridge High School celebrates its homecoming this week, while Woodbury High School's festivities are set for next week. It's a time students and alumni revel in - when school...

OUR VIEW: Public benefits from open discussions
District 833 School Board members at a recent annual retreat discussed budget planning, goals for the upcoming year - and how to largely keep their differences among themselves. That last item may be puzzling to voters who like to know the views of their elected officials. The discussion...

OUR VIEW: Reasonableness nowhere to be found in shutdown
Suddenly last week, government got real in Minnesota. With the state hurtling toward a government shutdown, folks who might otherwise equate Capitol updates with white noise began to say, "Oh, no. Is this going to affect me?" For many, it did. A list of the governor's essential...

Our View: School election change has benefits
Minnesotans trumpet their nation-leading voter turnout in big elections for good reason. An active citizenry is a source of pride, and it provides some assurance that ballot results better reflect the mood of the electorate.

OUR VIEW: The world's been waiting for you, class of 2011
As we prepare to watch another batch of graduates shove off into post-high school life, it's worth recalling the colossal news items that have punctuated these seniors' final months in school. Let's recap - briefly. -- All eyes turned to Egypt in February when citizens there fed...

OUR VIEW: Ready, set, Relay
Who's ready to Relay? By the sound of it, thousands of you. On Friday night, south Washington County residents - and folks from around the Twin Cities and western Wisconsin - will descend on East Ridge High School's Raptor's Nest for this year's Relay For Life event. If you've...

OUR VIEW: Neighbors who stand vigilant make impact
A group of Woodbury neighbors didn't just gripe about suspicious activity after they witnessed it. They did something. That something resulted in the arrest of an alleged drug dealer, as reported in this week's news pages. The neighbors knew what they were seeing looked suspicious:...

OUR VIEW: City should consider cost in 'traffic calming'
Some folks are getting fed up with drivers barreling down residential streets at high speeds, and they're right to be frustrated. Speeding in residential areas is reckless and dangerous. Period. Thankfully, it's also a manageable problem. Right now Woodbury City Council is attempting...

Our view: Distracted driving message goes for adults, too
Hopefully parents took note of the state's campaign last week against distracted driving. Woodbury residents, especially, should have noticed: the state's Department of Public Safety used East Ridge High School and its students as the backdrop for the announcement. While the campaign...

One unlucky Woodbury resident got a rude homeowner's awakening recently when he learned he was on the hook for $6,500 worth of something he didn't even know existed. The experience, explained in detail in this edition's Page 1 story, represents a nightmare scenario for most homeowners....

Our View: Field of dreams becoming a reality
It was hard for most Minnesotans not to get at least a little bit excited last week when the Twins opened their regular season. There is nothing quite like the beginning of another baseball season to remind us that - yes, after all - spring is arriving. Hibernation is over. Lawns...

Our View: Hoopla over YouTube video on local GOP website demonstrates new media spin cycle at its worst
"It's amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits in a newspaper." Those are the humorous words of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Of course they were uttered well more than a decade ago. If only Seinfeld knew the joke would have so much...

Our View: Woodbury Days is a great way to cap off summer
It kind of creeps up on you. First it's Memorial Day. Then the last day of school. Fourth of July. The next thing you know it's late August and summer's prime seems to be in the rear view mirror. That's what makes the weekend of Aug. 27-29 so special in Woodbury. While many communities...

Our View: Primary is Aug. 10? Yep.
Does it feel like fall already? The calendar says it's August, but if you pay attention to lawn signs, the mail box and television or radio, it feels like November. We can thank the state Legislature for that one. In March Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the bill that moved up the primary...
