SPRING VALLEY — The Spring Valley Stagehands are excited to bring "The Drowsy Chaperone" to its Spring Valley Theatre stage in April, and to have Hudson resident and Baldwin-Woodville High School music teacher Corissa Vought in the female lead role in the production.
President Trump responded to the most recent mass school shooting by urging people to speak up when something is clearly wrong. While those who support the president were perhaps more enthusiastic in their agreeance, both sides seemed to agree that yes, speaking up is a good thing and something we should do. But what does that look like?
While no contested races populate this year's ballots for Hudson or St. Joseph townships, the Star Observer asked candidates to fill out questionnaires, in order to refresh their constituents' minds on who is serving in those public offices. Hudson township Supervisor 1 Don Jordan (i) Age: 63 Address: 546 County Road UU, Hudson Occupation: Business and Corporate Real Estate Family: Married (Gail) with one son (Chris)
Incumbent Rich O'Connor or current Hudson Common Council President John Hoggatt (District 5) square off in the race for Hudson mayor in the April 3 election. The Star Observer asked both men to fill out brief questionnaires in order to introduce them to voters or, if already familiar to voters, give a glimpse as to who is on the ballot. John G. Hoggatt Age: 52 Address: 925 First. St., Hudson
Tom McCormick raised an important issue in last week's paper: should St. Croix Emergency Medical Service follow the community service model? I serve on the ad hoc EMS committee. I've learned there are several models followed in the US, including public utility (a city or township contracts with a private vendor for emergency medical
A credit card skimmer was found on an ATM at Associated Bank on Coulee Road shortly before 9 a.m. Friday, March 9. A representative from the bank's Financial Investigations Department reported it after reviewing video of a man messing with the ATM through the driver's side window of his vehicle. After searching the specified ATM, police located a false piece of plastic, and underneath it, a microchip and thin battery pack. The rest of the skimmer equipment was found within the card reader and removed. Another branch location in Hudson was checked for skimmers but none were located.
Disability Advocacy Day 2018 is right around the corner. It is Tuesday March 20th from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Madison. It is a great opportunity for individuals to connect with their legislators so they can talk about what is important to them. I would love to see people from Hudson there and from all over the state. I am writing this as a person and not as a part of any organization. Ramsey Lee Hudson The Constitution is still alive and well
Sally Toomey's opinion titled "It's time to handicap the NRA's influence" is disappointing, but not surprising, deflecting from the failures of the school administration, the sheriff, and FBI to respond to obvious signs of trouble. Instead, she launched, as expected, an attack on the Second Amendment. Did Ms. Toomey ask "why didn't Democrats push through new gun laws involving [her misnomer] "weapons of war" when they had significant majorities in the House and Senate in 2009-2010?"
As Easter approaches, I never cease to be amazed at the difference that the hope of the resurrection makes in our daily lives. The way we live today, is directly related to what we believe about our future. I recently read a true story about two soldiers who were captured as prisoners of war and consequently were thrown into a POW prison camp. Just before they were taken away, one soldier discovered that his wife and child were dead. Yet, the other soldier learned that his wife and kids were not only safe, but would be waiting for him.
