Council members and Mayor O'Connor, I am writing to express my concern with the city's proposal to sell SCEMS to Lakeview Ambulance and the way it has been handled so far. We have an outstanding EMS service that has been serving Hudson and Western Wisconsin since 1970 by people who live and work in the community. So far the only reason that's been presented is it will save the city money. I am entirely against this proposal and believe in the long run it will cost the city more by selling it.

Summer won't officially begin for another two weeks, but road construction is in full swing. Summer as Midwesterners know it truly is here. These road and bridge projects, such as the St. Croix Crossing bridge between St. Joseph, Wis. and Stillwater, Minn., not to mention will create occasional headaches for the impatient and patient alike — frustration and exhaustion that can't be blamed on the arrival of summer heat. But each of us would do well to remember that delays, detours and dust are part of the package.
Getting a jump on next year's 50th anniversary of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway's upper portion, writer Buz Swerkstrom has collected more than 80 riverway-related newspaper and magazine articles into a book called "St. Croix Stories: Writings about the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway 1979-2010." The 380-page collection, available by mail order and in both print and e-book versions from Amazon.com, adds up to a modern history of the riverway, which includes most of the St. Croix River and all 98 miles of its longest tributary, the Namekagon River.
