EDITORIAL: Should prom-goers submit photos?
We're not sure what to make of the Osakis School Board's discussion to have girls submit a photo of themselves wearing the dress they plan to wear to prom. (See the front page story in today's issue for details.) The photos would be submitted for approval to the prom's co-advisor....

FORUM EDITORIAL: This time for president, none of the above
For the first time in more than half a century, Forum Communications Co. declines to endorse the Republican candidate for president of the United States. It does not follow, however, that the endorsement goes to the Democratic candidate. This year, we suggest none of the above is...

Boot and Salute
STEALING AT THE FAIR Boot: The Douglas County Fair was a bustling, fun event filled with many family friendly activities. But, as is the case at other large-scale events, there always seems to be an isolated few who exhibit selfish behavior. Even with an attendant watching over the...

Osakis Review Editorial: Wait for facts in bullying incident
When a news story breaks, people, understandably, want answers. They want black-and-white facts so they’ll know exactly what happened. Unfortunately, not everything is so clear-cut, at least initially. That’s the case with an alleged bullying incident at Osakis High School on...

Osakis Review Editorial: Douglas County is considering bad idea
The Douglas County Board was scheduled to consider a resolution yesterday that should keenly interest readers. It supports legislation allowing counties to publish public notices on their websites instead of in newspapers. It’s a bad idea – and not one that would just hurt newspapers...

Editorial - Healthy foods are affordable
It's time to shatter the myth that's stopping some people from eating healthier. Healthy foods are not as expensive as people think. The United States Department of Agriculture Undersecretary Kevin Concannon released a column about the affordability of fresh fruits and vegetables...

A Forum Editorial - The 7th District is Peterson territory
Congressman Collin Peterson hasn't had a close race in Minnesota's 7th District since 1994. Sometimes he merely overwhelmed a bad opponent, but not always. Peterson has won handily because the voters of the 7th identify with him. They might not agree with every public policy position...

Osakis Review Editorial: Who will get your vote?
Who should get my vote? This year's Osakis School Board election likely has many people throughout the district asking that question. While it makes going to the polls more complicated, what a great problem to have.

Point of View - Netflex killed the video store
Technology's a double-edged sword that's just taken another stab in the heart of Osakis. Maybe to some, the closing of Village Video is simply a sign of the times. To me, and my family, it's a surprisingly painful loss. Movie night quickly became a much-anticipated tradition that...
