Our View: Look for 'passionate' voters next Tuesday
In just a few days we will all have an opportunity to vote in the June 5 recall election, and most of us will seek reconciliation with someone after the results are tallied. Unless, of course, you fall in that extreme minority of Wisconsinites that has no opinion about Gov.

Our View: Memorial Day - Take time to honor veterans
All died defending a way of life -- a way of life too many of us take for granted. Memorial Day is the day that Americans have set aside to remember those who gave their lives so that our country might live. Americans, who enjoy the peace purchased at the great price of death, should...

Our View: Yellowstone Trail offers historical glance
As community celebrations go, the Yellowstone Trail Heritage Days coming up this weekend is somewhat unique. It doesn't have the glitz of Booster Days or Pepper Fest, but during the third year of this celebration, we all have a chance to reflect on our past and be part of a landmark...

Our View: St. Croix County nursing home downsizing makes sense
Despite all the uproar over the recent decision to cut the St. Croix County Health Center nursing home's operation to 50 licensed beds, members of the Health and Human Service Board got it right recently when they officially endorsed the idea. For the second time in four years,...

Our View: Poor judgment by Madison judge
Just when you think you've seen it all in Wisconsin politics -- you get to see something even more bizarre. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan last week issued a temporary injunction on preventing further use of the state's voter ID law. That alone was a questionable act...

Our View: Be willing to make donations, but be informed
