LETTER: Information needed on SCI transfer plan
To the Editor: Re: May 6, 2013 story, "Board votes to transfer disabled program" My, that was quick and seemingly easy, one vote and it appears St. Croix Industries is history. Yes, I know it has to be voted on by the county board. In reality can St. Croix Industries be replaced...

LETTER: Investigations best left to professionals
To the Editor: Well, it appears that spring is finally here and more than the grass has been uncovered, or has it? The May 5, 2013, New Richmond News headline story caused the cows to give sour milk, the chickens to stop laying eggs and pigs to start losing weight.

EDITORIAL: WeTEC sale is big win
When it came to decision time, the New Richmond City Council did the right thing and decided to sell the city-owned WeTEC building. Carrying a price tag of $225,000, the 43,000-square-foot building that Wisconsin Lighting is getting is a pretty good deal. But the city is getting...
