Local Views: What Gov. Walker, GOP are doing to education is un-American
Charter schools have not improved academic performance, or if they have, usually it is because they have weeded out low-performing students.
Your Views: Gov. Walker’s comparison of protesters to ISIS is absurd
Comparing ISIS, a brutal terrorist group, with peaceful demonstrations against a governor who eliminated collective bargaining is totally absurd.
Local Views: Big changes must occur for Beloit Snappers
Without a new stadium, a better business plan and the addition of new, experienced board members and leaders, the long life of the Snappers will end.
State Views: Making assessments of property better for taxpayers
The state budget includes a proposal to make the assessing process more efficient. Wisconsin would move to a county-based system with an option for larger municipalities.
Our Views: Generosity lifting lives in Rock, Walworth counties
Sometimes, large donations greatly advance charitable efforts in our communities, and generous gifts in Rock and Walworth counties are prime examples.
Your Views: Gov. Walker wrong in efforts to deny civil liberties
I urge all Wisconsin citizens to read, listen beyond the political rhetoric and use your voice along with your votes to move Wisconsin Forward, as our motto suggests.

Your Views: Delavan-Darien superintendent appreciates support of referendum
The thought of cutting staff and eliminating programs would have meant the loss of additional students in this district. Without them, we cannot thrive nor exist.

One community’s gain is another’s loss. Certainly the right-to-work-for-peanuts legislation that is destined to become Wisconsin law comes under this heading.
Your Views: Don’t neglect to thank those who teach your kids
How often do they hear that their efforts are valued and significant? The role of teachers in our children’s lives is an important part of who they will become.
