Property owners in Minnesota pay in many ways for the joy of owning lakeshore. We say let them enjoy it a little by having a platform on the end of their dock if they want one. It's a nice place to fish or lie in the sun.


That's our take on the issue of dock platforms.

For now, the Department of Natural Resources agrees. But a number of lawmakers do not, and are considering drafting a bill to change it this session.
