Balance means taking charge or not

In the front row: Really, it's not all about the food
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...

Arts Minded column: We're all Irish Saturday
Saturday is St. Patrick's Day! That's the day we do Irish things and celebrate the Celtic part of our heritage. And CAB has a heck of a good way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. The River Falls Community Arts Base is having a special St. Patrick's Day "Barn Dance" 7-9:30 p.m. in the...

Arts Minded column: Coming together as 'Crokicurl'
Flying back home to ice and snow country, I dug into a story in the January 2018 issue of Delta Sky. Ordinarily I might not pay it much mind, but an article titled "Right on the Button" referenced my home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. My interest was peaked. You may ask what's...

Arts Minded column: Iris Apfel — inspiration to anyone of any age
As I contemplated my wardrobe choices for a fancy, black tie New Year's party last week, I was reminded of a documentary film about a woman whose life is a serious work of art. If you are unaware of the nonagenarian, Iris Apfel, you are missing out on someone whose free flowing vision...
