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,...

Greg Peters column: Wonder what a rhino is?
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....

Arts Minded column: Shopping should not be focus of the season
It's the holiday season 2017. And guess what folks? Shopping is not all we can do! Like most of you, we have a wonderful family — and we are planning fine events with them. We know of people in need and we do what we can to help ameliorate those needs.

Woodworking column: Hats off! Hats on!
When I was a kid, there was a cartoonist named Jimmy Hatlo, who not only drew but periodically wrote something nice about somebody. It began "And a doff of the Hatlo Hat to Elmer Snerd of North Baltimore, Ohio...." I always suspected he did it when nothing much was happening. Nothing...

Woodworking column: A Thanksgiving tale from long ago
Driving past Black River Falls last month, I was tempted to jump off 94 and visit German Hill, a BRF neighborhood that is dear to my heart. That's where my Aunt Doree and Uncle Leonard lived when I was a little kid. When I was a really little kid I couldn't manage to pronounce their...

Viewpoint: The zen of deer hunting
Sitting alone in the fog. Blending in with the grass and trees. Don't move. Just listen. Breathe. "Caaw, caaw caaw." Two crows overhead. One higher, hoarser, more nasal. A young one. Looking for food. They are opportunists. Listen. "Tuk, tuk, tuk tuk, tuk." A wild turkey to the north....

From This Perch: Seeing through a tribal lens
Got tribal lens? What's that, you ask? It's the idea that most of us tend to fall into a variety of "tribes," or social divisions, that create tribal unity around things like sports, family, friends, religion, and of course, politics. I refer to it as a lens because a lens can distort...
