Our View: Tax meeting rightly aims to bury rhetoric
What springs to mind when you hear the word "tax?" Funding? Burden? Roads? Welfare? Indeed, it's a loaded word for many people. A Woodbury woman, however, wants to defuse that bomb. As is described in this week's Page 1 story in the Bulletin, Kelly DeBrine is holding a meeting...

Our View: Ready for another Radio Drive roundabout?
Does Radio Drive need another roundabout? The road, which saw its current roundabout installed in 2007 at Bailey Road, is poised for another such addition, city officials recently argued. Woodbury staff and City Council members earlier this month asked Washington County officials...

Our view: Have safe, enjoyable summer
They spotted a what? A ... peacock? Last week's alert from police that a peacock was spotted loose on the streets of Woodbury reminds us that strange things happen in this relatively quiet city. But as we regularly see in police reports published in the Bulletin, worse things can...

Our view: District dust finally settling
The timing of two recent District 833 School Board decisions may have been coincidental, but it certainly was symbolic. In one action late last month, board members came to terms with outgoing Superintendent Mark Porter through a resignation agreement that puts an end to their troubled...

Our View: Local program provides help in the 'New Normal'
If the "New Normal" has you feeling out of sorts, you're not alone. While economic indicators continue to show signs of recovery in the United States, many of us are still waiting to feel it at home and in our pocketbooks. The most notable indicator that has yet to recover is wages,...

Our View: Tragic crash gives pause, reason to reflect
You couldn't help but be alarmed. When news broke last week that a man had been run over by an SUV?in a Woodbury gas station parking lot, you likely were taken aback. Your second reaction may have been, "That could have been me." After all, how many times do we find ourselves performing...

Our View: Did District 833 board follow Open Meeting Law?
The District 833 School Board's search for a new superintendent is rolling along, but an issue surrounding Superintendent Mark Porter's dismissal gave us pause for concern. We have questioned whether the board violated the Minnesota Open Meeting Law in its handling of Porter's final...

Our View: Public's voice must be heard in search process
South Washington County residents upset over the District 833 School Board's move to replace Superintendent Mark Porter had legitimate reasons to look upon board members with confusion and suspicion. The action appeared to come out of nowhere and surprised many inside and outside...

OUR VIEW: No sign of sour grapes at District 834
You've got to hand it to the folks at the Stillwater Area School District. They are soldiering on through a grueling budget-cutting process with all the earnestness and positivity of a group that has not been thwarted. Yet that's exactly what happened to the district in November,...

Our View: Make wise choices in 2012
What a year it was. As was chronicled in last week's Woodbury Bulletin, the community underwent countless changes in 2011. We said goodbye -- too early, always -- to many unforgettable members of the community. We learned Woodbury is now among the 10 largest cities in Minnesota,...

OUR VIEW: School Board owes public explanation for Porter decision
District 833 residents received surprising news last week when School Board members voted 5-2 not to renew Superintendent Mark Porter's contract. Board members Leslee Boyd, Ron Kath, Tracy Brunnette, David Kemper and Marsha Adou voted to end Porter's decades-long employment with...

Our View: Generosity plentiful in Woodbury during holidays
Take a bow, Woodbury. You're a generous bunch. This week in the paper we feature not one, but two stories of generosity. That comes after two previous weeks of similar coverage that we're happy to share with the community.

Our View: Optimism ebbs, flows in public, private sectors
Now that the food has been digested and most of the leftovers not hidden in the back of the refrigerator have been consumed, it seems fair to reflect on this year's Thanksgiving. There's no need to rehash what many of us said before breaking bread last Thursday. Those of us fortunate...

Our View: The time is now for even-year elections
Well, the results are in, and we can't say we're surprised. Of the 54,540 people registered to vote in the South Washington County School District, exactly 4,009 turned up at the polls Nov. 8 to cast their vote for School Board. In case you're counting, that's just a titch above...

Our view: Evolving from Columbine
So much has changed since 1999. Then, we thought we were Internet-savvy. Now we're Internet-driven. Some might even say we're completely dependent on Web. Then, Americans were living in relative peace, confident that the conflict in Kosovo was winding down. Today, our national innocence...
