Our View: Professional conduct needed at meetings
With a city, three school districts, four villages and nine towns in the New Richmond News coverage area, our reporters cover a lot of public meetings. First, we must thank the citizens who care enough about their communities to serve the public on various committees, commissions,...

Our View: City development requires patience
News of Culver’s pulling out of its land deal with the City of New Richmond dealt a disappointing blow to those who hope for the community to continue to grow, including Mayor Fred Horne, City Administrator Mike Darrow and Community Development Director Beth Thompson. Despite the...

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...

EDITORIAL: City tagline needs a change
