ArtsMinded column: Todd Bol inspired generosity, creative thinking
Let's hold Todd Bol in memory like a well-worn, favorite book. The creative, loving entrepreneur who invented the Little Free Library project to honor his late mother, is held in the hearts of many, a magnificent legacy himself. A Hudson resident, there were by the time of the 62-year-old's...

ArtsMinded column: 'Intersection of recycled materials with whimsical imagination'
Sometimes an artist's journey stretches credulity. Such is the case of a recent theft of Hastings, Minnesota, artist and sculptor Dale Lewis' 160-pound recycled steel crocodile absconded from an art walk in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in late July 2018. It was recovered, in apparently...

ArtsMinded column: RF should be considered one of "Our Towns"
Art's House news: Greeting Card Boutique finished Saturday. However, I'm sure that if you didn't spend all your change at Art on the Kinni — and if you still need greeting cards, some will be in stock when Art's House opens next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

ArtsMinded column: As summer turns towards fall
Well the lazy, hot, dry days of Summer 2018 are coming to a close (a couple more dry days first, I understand). It has been a fine summer with fine arts concerts, exhibits, performances sponsored by CAB, the River Falls Public Library, the University and other summer specific events....

Viewpoint: Why I voted against the cannabis referendum
Last week the St. Croix County Board voted to table the cannabis legalization advisory referendum indefinitely. I supported that result and was pleased that the eight members who agreed with me were not only from the conservative coalition on the board, but included three members...

ArtsMinded column: RF Days a success, now back to business
The 2018 River Falls Days is, for most locals, a thing of the past. For a short time, lawns on Main and Second streets are free of blankets, stones and other markers for locals to view the parade. And, once again, shoppers and those who want to hear Music in the Park and access...

Balance means taking charge or not
Who "wears the pants" in your household? It's not an issue if you're single, but if you live with someone the question may come up. The expression comes from the era when men were the only ones wearing pants. And pants equaled power. Growing up in the 1950s, most families looked the...

Broasted chicken and ribs at the Speakeasy Saloon outside Neillsville. Oyster po-boy and crawfish etouffee at Buzzard Billy's in La Crosse. A Fat Uncle Tony's at Salvatore's Tomato Pies in Madison. These are just some of the dishes I've eaten in the past nine months traveling around...

ArtsMinded column: The difference between art fakes and forgeries
Things seem rife with prevarication these days. I came upon a story in www.news.artnet.com by Henri Neuendorf concerning fakes and forgeries in galleries and museums, world-wide. It begs to be divulged to our culturally savvy region if, for no other reason, than artists and arts...
