Our View: Pick a local project and get involved

Our View: City shouldn't appeal newspaper lawsuit ruling
Last month, the New Richmond News won its open records lawsuit over the City of New Richmond in a case involving the New Richmond Police Department’s practice of redacting information from police incident reports and accident reports. That’s why the paper’s police blotter says...

Our View: It's your turn to decide
This isn’t one of those elections you see coming from a mile away. Citizens haven’t been bombarded for months on end by robocalls, mailers and TV commercials from candidates and special interest groups. Locals probably haven’t been solicited to donate money and time to campaigns,...

Our View: Politicians: Don’t mess with court access system
We live in a day and age when information comes at us from many directions. The danger is that people may not recognize when a source of critical information could be silenced. Such is the case in Wisconsin where a group of senators have sponsored a bill to “rob” the state’s...

Our View: Council must decide soon on library site
The New Richmond City Council’s 5-1 vote to table the library site issue on Monday and seek further information on costs was disappointing. Members of the council didn’t have to decide on a final design and all the costs associated with it. They didn’t have to decide on exactly...

OUR VIEW: New library director inherits building fray
Kimberly Hennings has her work cut out for her. Hennings will take over as director of New Richmond’s Friday Memorial Library on Monday, and we already feel for her. She will jump directly into the center of a struggle more than a decade in the making to build a new library for...

EDITORIAL: City tagline needs a change
You have no doubt seen the current City of New Richmond logo: a leafy tree with fields of green and blue on either side atop blue wavy lines. Accompanying the logo is the tagline “actively inviting | naturally authentic.” While the New Richmond City Council voted, 4-2, at its...

EDITORIAL: More war? Vote must reflect public opinion
When President Obama asked for Congressional approval before taking military action against Syria, we presumed he was asking for approval from the American people. We, the people, are the constituents of U.S. senators and representatives, and therefore their vote on this critical...

EDITORIAL: Keep safety in mind for new school year
Another school year is now underway in the New Richmond, Somerset and St. Croix Central school districts. For parents, teachers and school administrators, that means it's time to get accustomed to new routines, whether they include, waking up at a different time, putting on different...

EDITORIAL: New SCC common study hall a great idea
If St. Croix Central High Schools students play their cards right this year, they could go home every day without any homework, and student athletes won't fall behind in any of their late-day classes due to leaving early for competition. New to the school schedule this year is a ninth-period...

EDITORIAL: Budget bill should be limited to dollars and sense
When the Wisconsin Legislature and Gov. Scott Walker start talking about the state's budget, one would think the discussion might be limited to issues related to the spending of taxpayer dollars. Sadly, the state's budget bill often morphs into something that incorporates measures...
