Viewpoint: Motivation suffers under District 833's class-rank change
Recently District 833 announced the plan to discontinue class ranking. Beginning next year, East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools will no longer report student ranking, "unless there is an unlikely event in which not doing so puts our students at a disadvantage." The decision...

Viewpoint: Sobiech's message resonates, inspires
It has been an incredibly emotional period for many of us in the Stillwater Area Public Schools' community. In a few short days we've celebrated with hundreds of our young people as they prepare for the next exciting stage of their lives, and we've cried as a school family as we've...

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.

Viewpoint: Time to reconsider long-held parenting practices
Becoming a grandparent is a wonderful opportunity to offer love, support and all the knowledge we have acquired throughout our years of raising children. We have many answers to the childrearing questions our sons and daughters may have and are only too happy to impart our words of...

Viewpoint: Sorting out Minnesota's prison system
You probably know that there are two prisons in Washington County: The Stillwater prison (which is actually in Bayport) and the Oak Park Heights prison. Did you know that there are also eight other prisons in Minnesota? Nine are for men. The state's only women's prison is in Shakopee....

VIEWPOINT: As adults, we can't underestimate the value of playtime
When we see little children at play, they are immersed in the present moment, with seemingly no distractions. In fact, if we were to call their name and they appeared to ignore us, they would contend they did not hear us. When they are playing, they enter a different world, one that...

Viewpoint: Nurturing relationships key in caring for memory patients
Communicating with a loved one who has Alzheimer's disease or another similar form of dementia can be a bit of a puzzle sometimes. We find that as the disease progresses, it is increasingly difficult to catch and hold their attention. At times, they seem to simply choose to, at best,...

Deciphering inspiration, intimidation
I'm sure you've all met someone recently who was inspiring to you. You have probably met someone who intimidated you, also. So what's the difference for us when we feel inspired or intimidated, because the source of those feelings could, quite frankly, be the same person for different...

Resident's Viewpoint: Writer's anti-NRA argument was flawed
The Viewpoint by Carol Turnbull on April 17 about gun control is very misleading in at least one critical area.

Soucheray: Forgiveness, we learn, is a choice
In the book, "Forgiveness is a Choice," by Dr. Robert Enright, states that forgiveness is a gift we give to ourselves. He says when we have been harmed in some way by someone, or a situation, it is our choice to hold on to the hurt and the anger we feel toward the other. We all know...

Viewpoint: How much is too much for a DWI?
"What a party," you think as you drive yourself home. Suddenly the night sky is filled with flashing red and blue lights and you worry that you may be in trouble. Did you drink too much to be driving legally? DWI law confuses a lot of people. The name itself is confusing. DWI is...

Resident's Viewpoint: Speak up against NRA's faulty logic
State Rep. Andrea Kieffer has said she's getting "tons" of emails on the gun control issue and that "most are very much in support of our Second Amendment rights." I understood that to mean they oppose tightening of gun control laws - from people she already agrees with. But polls...
