Letter to the editor: Afton's trapping proposal would end 'unbearably cruel' practice
Thanks to Amber Kispert-Smith for highlighting the importance of protecting animals from trapping ("An end to trapping in Afton?"; June 12). Animals caught in barbaric leghold traps and snares suffer immensely from their injuries, long periods of distress, and ultimately a sad death....

Letter to the editor: Education system should get old-school in forging obedience
As I watched this legislation discuss a "Bullying Bill" I asked myself, "Why would a school need someone to come up with a bill for them on how to control bullying?" When you decide to work in the education profession are you not aware part of childhood has always been bullying each...

Viewpoint: 'Education session' was a successful one

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....

Soucheray: Consider what's going in your summer body

Soucheray: Need to argue? Consider this tack
Probably the most common reason couples identify for seeking therapy is a lack of thoughtful, considerate communication. They say they don't know how to talk to each other so that both partners feel they have been heard, or how to share their feelings so that no one gets upset.
