I was recently sharing dinner with friends when one of them asked for my thoughts about the kind of planet we were passing on to our children and grandchildren. The question was asked within the context of a discussion on climate change, and the recent poll findings that over 70% of us now believe in climate change while almost that same number would not commit to spending $10 a month toward addressing it.

Several Hudson Middle School students were recognized as Raiders of the Month for February. The learning habit for February was "perseverance," a refusal to give up the pursuit of a goal despite difficulties.

Students, parents and staff gathered for a celebration breakfast on April 12.
Alec Johnson will be the speaker at a mid-month meeting of the Western Wisconsin Photography Club at 6:30 p.m. April 17 at The Phipps Center for the Arts. Johnson's talk will feature a series of bold and unique images using the technique of light painting - lighting a subject with a flashlight one detail at a time with a flashlight - and then compositing those frames of light to build a finished image. Each image is its own case study, creating an engaging, lively and educational discussion.
