Local news is under threat

    by

    Remember when local school board elections were quiet events mostly with candidates who occasionally had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the race? Remember when we fought about teacher pay, bus routes and maybe, very occasionally, the books in the library?

    We live in an era of unverified accusations

    March 17th, 2022

    “Good grief, you get a lot of email,” grumbles my husband, who often must wade through it. I excuse it by pointing out that as a member of the Wisconsin Newspaper Association, our email address is not only public but likely is passed around. In order to whittle down some of the detritus I opened a Yahoo account for my personal stuff. It is barely used at all, not enough in a week to even fill a teacup.

    Zachary Cooper was already an accomplished scholar when he made a major contribution to our local history. With a bachelor’s degree in European history and a master’s degree in American history from UW-Madison, along with a doctorate in curriculum and instruction, Cooper took time from his instructor’s job at the UW-Madison to research and write a pamphlet on black settlements in Wisconsin for the Wisconsin State Historical Society.

    Parallels between evolution, CRT

    February 4th, 2022
    by

    Recalling Martin Luther King

    December 24th, 2021
    by

    I must have been about 7 when I was given a quarter for the Saturday afternoon matinee at the Goetz Theater in Monroe, Wis. “A Christmas Carol” was playing, and I found it so frightening that I might well have wet my pants, although I don’t think I did.
