Curb the Supreme Court’s imperial power
“For the good of the country and the Supreme Court, this moment demands a compromise nominee,” Ezra Klein wrote last week on the liberal Vox.com. That’s not going to happen. But here’s something that might: Congress should mark the start of a new administration by recognizing...

Hudsonites, who are we? Dear Editor, I am pleased to report that Hudson is a community filled mostly with many welcoming and friendly residents that make me very proud. My wife and I hosted a young man from Ghana at the Hot Air Affair. His descriptive words to me were, “This is...

Getting the hang of retirement will take time
As the day of my retirement is approaching fast, I am beginning to realize that as big events in life go, it is right up there with getting married, my extreme youth at the time explains that one, having babies, remember two at a time, and living to see “he who shall not be named”...

Sanctuary: How do we define it?
The recent community debate about whether to welcome Syrian refugee families to Hudson’s St. Patrick’s Parish Church was left seemingly unresolved. Then a comment made by St. Croix County Supervisor Roy Sjoberg at January’s County Board meeting ignited renewed debate. “I...

We're not the type to keep quiet
"A reminder that the president's top aide just told the New York Times that the press should keep its mouth shut...no." With a shake of his head and a single word, CNN's Jake Tapper summed it up nicely. Keeping its mouth shut is the exact opposite of the media's purpose. I could leave...

Retirement in a world of 'alternate facts'
I used to tell some whoppers when I was a kid and don't really know why. My mom was a champion at it so I think I got it from her.

Notes from the dockside: really cold
“Your car didn’t want to start,” Doug said to me. “It groaned and moaned a whole lot before it finally kicked over.” Looking outside the window of the farm house, I couldn’t see much since most of the window was covered in frost. It was dark and the car was surrounded...
