Woodworking: Learning to talk 'Wisconsin'
Last week, I told Journal readers about how I taught my beautiful Illinois-bred wife how to talk, Wisconsin-style, even if she didn't know her respondent from Adam. As readers may recall, Ruth got so good at talking to strangers that I very seldom get to talk to the love of my life,...

Viewpoint: Card skimmer bill aimed at stopping gas pump scam
"Be careful when you fill up," Linda warned me a few months ago. "There's a new scam that captures your credit card information when you pay for your gas at the pump." One more thing to worry about, I thought. However, I discovered Sen. Rob Cowles already put worry into action. He...

When did it become OK to steal? TO THE EDITOR After 21 years I can no longer just ignore the behavior of some of the residents. A few nights ago I innocently put a pair of tennis shoes on my front porch to dry. To my disappointment when I went to retrieve them the next day they were...
