Our view: Know your School Board candidates
Who are you going to vote for next week? One excuse you won't have if you're reading the Woodbury Bulletin is that you never knew about the candidates vying for South Washington County School Board. There are seven of them. Some are fresh faces. Others are incumbents seeking re-election....

Our view: A community grieves
These past two weeks have brought grim news to Woodbury. Residents were stunned on Oct. 11 to learn that Woodbury resident Anthony Dehaven and his two children were found dead in a burned-out recreational vehicle at Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. We later learned that federal...

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: Skimming scam demands common sense
Thieves can be more than just deceitful - they can be devious. We were reminded of that fact last week after news broke of a so-called "skimming" operation discovered at a local bank branch's ATM. As this edition's front-page story spells out, the would-be thieves used two pieces...

Our view: Political letters must abide parameters
Woodbury voters go to the polls this year to elect three District 833 School Board members. We've been attempting to keep you informed on the candidates and continue to arrange election coverage as Nov. 8 nears. Managing the Woodbury Bulletin's coverage of local elections also involves...

Our view: Remember gratitude on Sept. 11
The nation bows its head in reverence Sunday - 10 years to the day after a deadly morning that changed so much. What do you feel as you think back to where you were when you heard the news on Sept. 11? Sorrow? Anger? Grief?

OUR VIEW: Give teachers, students a pat on the back
The arrival of Woodbury Days and the Minnesota State Fair assures us that summer's reign will soon come to an end. But certainly not before we've eaten our weight in pronto pups and funnel cakes. Or at least tried. For many Woodbury families, though, the fun belies the big white...

Our View: City ordinance procedure deserves review
If not for some outspoken business owners last week, the city of Woodbury could very well have ended up with two new ordinances without so much as a discussion. As it stands, the city got one - the so-called "social host" ordinance, which holds parents accountable for underage drinking...

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...

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...
