Thank a ref for giving back to their sport
They're yelled at and unfairly blamed. People call them all sorts of mean names, questioning everything from their eyesight to their integrity. They receive a mere pittance for putting up with all that griping, yet there they are, week after week, doing the best they can in a job...

Walking to a healthier lifestyle
A stronger heart, a reduction in other health risks and a positive mental outlook. Who wouldn't want that? These things can all be achieved by one simple, cheap thing: walking. U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy is calling for the promotion of health through walking and walkable...

Honoring the work of our teachers
Teaching is a calling. Oh, sure, it's a profession that requires specialized education, but the lure of the classroom for dedicated teachers is as emotional as it is intellectual. The best teachers — the ones remembered by their students — master techniques that balance...

Action welcome to improve Minnesota's water quality
A great benefit of living in Minnesota is that often times the system works. In the case of water quality, that seems to be playing out in the state. And that's great news. The process is slow and cumbersome but it's likely to show results over time. And given the core importance...

Strengthen law to hold government more accountable
Even before Watergate, the Freedom of Information Act was helping guarantee public access to data, documents and other information Americans are entitled to and need to hold government — and government officials — accountable. And right now, during the yearlong countdown...

School lunches: Be food conscientious
Sadly, summer is almost over. In a matter of a couple weeks, kids will be returning to school, and families will be back in the routine. There will be sporting events, practices and other extra-curricular activities to worry about. One activity that might not get as much thought...

Momentum building to broaden broadband
Similar to the way every corner of America was connected to the electrical grid in the 1930s, all Americans - even those in the remotest, most rural of Minnesota - can now be connected to broadband high-speed Internet. Getting everyone online is seen as critical for delivering...

Eleanor Roosevelt on the new $10 bill
Poor Alexander Hamilton. The founder of America's financial system, Hamilton died in 1804 never knowing that his image would grace our $10 bill for nearly a century, starting in 1929. He was the first secretary of the treasury and a founding father. It's likely his portrait...

How to stop elder abuse: Report red flags
It happens too often: An elderly person is financially preyed upon by a con artist, a relative or close friend. But all the headlines that tell about such crimes should not make people numb to it. Instead, it should spark outrage and spur action and awareness. It starts with reporting...

As of Tuesday afternoon at 2:40, there were 122,728 people in need of an organ transplant. That number changes continuously, which you will see. Unless someone you know has been touched by organ donation — whether it was to give or to receive — chances are, it's not...

Don't let money doom ruin relationship
Money and love. Unfortunately, they clash all too often. It would be sad to add up how many promising relationships went down the tubes because of arguments over money. According to a Harris Interactive survey, money is the top reason for marital spats. So, how can couples avoid...

A good day for basic civil rights
Indeed, the speed at which attitudes about same-sex marriage have changed from "no way" to "yes, of course" is unprecedented in modern U.S. history. Ten years ago, very few observers, if any, would have forecast that the turnaround would happen so quickly and so decisively. The court's...

A 'do-over' chance for rural Minnesota
