Woodworking column: Dave's food tips and tricks
Last summer my sister Kip arrived for a visit with news from her doctor. "I've found," she told us, "that I am gluten intolerant and can no longer eat stuff made with wheat." Oh, oh. That turned out to be a problem. No more vodka martinis made with inexpensive vodka, which is distilled...

Viewpoint: An easy dam decision
Our community is currently faced with a big decision. A decision with a now four-year foundation of community stakeholder group discussions and one year of active community involvement. What we are faced with is actually an easy dam decision and an incredible opportunity.

Woodworking column: Rutabaga accomplishment not what it once was
The world, alas, is passing me by. As I approach my 81st Christmas on this mortal coil, I have learned in my latest copy of Smithsonian magazine that my once proud accomplishment means nothing in this brave new world of agronomy. I refer, of course, to that landmark year of 1972...

During my recent veterans town hall meetings across Wisconsin, I heard directly from Wisconsin veterans on the need to improve the care and services our veterans are getting from the Department of Veterans Affairs. While many of our veterans like our local VA facilities, the process...

From this Perch: It's a wildfire!
It seems we're in the midst of a wildfire these days, and I don't mean the fires that are ravaging Southern California. I'm referring to the wave of sexual misconduct allegations that have caused some big heads to roll lately. We haven't seen the last of this, and I'll bet more than...

Woodworking column: A couple of zanies on WCCO
Ruth and I fell in love with a pair of zanies on WCCO radio when we returned from our $40, two-day honeymoon. One of our wedding presents was a clock radio, which awakened us to a song on our first day home. "Good morning, good morning, we've slept the whole night through, good morning,...

I hear people trying to be "right" every single day; health care; tax plans; stand up; kneel down! Many of us spend more energy than a hydrogen bomb trying to prove ourselves "right" and the last time I checked, there's no hall of fame for wins and losses in life's National Fracas...

Viewpoint: Federal tax reform would benefit Wisconsin
U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan did an outstanding job getting major tax reform legislation approved in his oftentimes divided chamber. His leadership on the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act should be commended. While the Wisconsin State Assembly majority membership is much smaller than the U.S....
