Today's hot real estate market is far different than the downward spiral and crash that started in 2008 and impacted 2009 values and beyond, according to annual reports from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. Equalized values are the foundation to support local taxes levied by towns, villages, cities, school districts and counties. Collectively, properties in St. Croix County lost $1.807 billion (with a "B") from 2009-2012. 2010 was the most painful year when $616 million came off the books.
When people think of Lynn C. Skinner and children's books she writes, they most likely think of "Eugene," a mouse that always seems to find himself in complicated situations.

It's no exaggeration to say that our political system is severely broken. Popular opinion of Congress hovers just above single digits, yet reelection rates top 90 percent. Chronic problems handicap any effort to achieve meaningful reform. Lobbyists and wealthy financial donors claim more representation in the halls of Congress than "We The People" do. Our government has ditched the best interests of the people for corporate and elitist demands, much to our detriment. This is, of course, nothing new.
