  • ‘Milked’ explores Latinos’ role in dairy industry

    December 2nd, 2022
    by

    I had just polished off a plate loaded with things I should not have eaten at the recent Norwalk Community Thanksgiving dinner when it occurred to me that I had not seen a single Latino face.

    Remembering Hardware Hank’s Julie Schreier

    November 17th, 2022
    by

    I recently was browsing through my very tattered and worn copy of “The Wiltonians.” Local history books will never be on the New York Times bestseller list, but they do become a constant reminder of where we have been, and in some cases, where we are headed.

    Take a deep breath. It’s just two more weeks until we march to the polls and bring a merciful end to those political attack ads and the even more tedious yard signs (please bring back the pink flamingos).

    October 21st, 2022
    by

    Before the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and the protest songs that accompanied it (think “We Shall Overcome” or “A Change is Gonna Come”), the famed jazz composer Charles Mingus wrote the “Fables of Faubus”

    Remember to be skeptical of political advertising

    October 6th, 2022
    by

    I saw it only one time, and now I am beginning to doubt that it actually happened. It was a film clip of a big, lovable dog leaning out the car window, his ears flopping in the breeze. It was the kind of dog whose joy is so infectious it even makes people happy.

    A few weeks ago, my daughter and I were wandering around La Crosse, killing time, waiting for a doctor’s appointment when we cruised through the downtown, pausing briefly to gaze at the now forlorn and vacant La Crosse Tribune building.

    by

    I don’t know what Raymond Brandau of Wilton experienced on Dec. 7, 1941, when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, catapulting the United States into World War II. It’s possible he did not speak much about it. World War II veterans tended to be a quiet lot.

    Abortion issue has shades of gray

    July 27th, 2022
    by

    Not long ago, a friend I have known for decades revealed to me that as a child she had been sexually assaulted by an immediate family member. At least I think that was the case — I was so shocked I failed to pry, as opposed to my usual nature. Who committed this incest, and what did it entail? I don’t know, but what came next was equally as shocking. Only in her old age did she share this with her sisters, who also had been assaulted. Until that point in time, she had been too humiliated to bring it up.
