Our governor, just before the election, hastily decided that the election must be postponed. He therefore called a special session of the Legislature, knowing full well that he lacks the constitutional authority to act on his own, which the Legislature flatly rebuffed. Why did he wait so long?

If you have visited a grocery store or another essential business in recent days, you perhaps noticed most people in Janesville still aren’t wearing face masks. Maybe you’re one of these people and think masks aren’t necessary.

How sad it is that people in Donald Trump's circle are afraid of him. We have a president who rejects facts and has an endless need for praise. He behaves as a demagogue who treats people as commodities. He has gone from saying, "I alone can fix it" to "I don't take responsibility at all." G…

The coronavirus crisis is producing scams, gouging and economic problems. The USA Today reports 33 attorneys general have demanded companies such as Amazon, Craigslist, eBay, Facebook and Walmart stop their price gouging in regard to critical supplies needed to treat the coronavirus pandemic.

Mike Stearns' Friday story (Page 1B), “No review needed,” is the best I have read in The Gazette in years. Thank you for the belly laugh both myself and my wife had in reading the tale of your moment in eighth grade that is forever etched in the archives of the Edgerton/Milton rivalry. It is…

During times of crisis, it is normal to want as much information as possible. This feeling is magnified by the fact that the coronavirus is unlike any crisis that we have seen in our lifetimes. Given recent discussions about the amount of information shared by the Rock County Public Health D…

The state budget passed only 10 months ago gave the Department of Workforce Development a spending increase of 0.8%. In a booming economy with record low unemployment, that was no problem.

It’s nice to see so many people out walking and riding bicycles. We have a lot to enjoy in the city of Milton. Trails at Crossridge Park, Schilberg Park and the dog park. Then there is Milton’s portion of the National Scenic Ice Age Trail. It goes from Vincent Street to Storrs Lake, featurin…

President Trump talks of social distancing. Well, when I watch the special reports on TV, I notice the task force team does not do that; they stand side by side at the podium. Shouldn’t they be setting an example of the social distancing like we are supposed to do? The president and task for…

I'm Ryan Schroeder and am running for mayor of the city of Delavan. As a seventh-generation resident of Delavan, some know me, but I want to introduce myself to those who don’t. I live here with my wife, Natalie, and our sons. I currently serve as alderman and have for nearly 20 years. I am …

I, Jerry Grant, have worked hard to earn your vote for Walworth County Board, District 4 on April 7. I have lived a life of service to the public, serving and protecting as a police officer for 33 years, the Whitewater School Board for 15 years and completing 16 years on the county board whi…

Five years ago, I moved to the city of Delavan. One of the first people I met was Tommy Purcell because of vehicle issues with my son’s car. Tommy was kind, considerate and respectful toward me and in fixing the vehicle. I was so impressed with his work that I continue to use Hunter’s Auto S…

Then-Attorney Daniel Kelly represented Republicans in a federal lawsuit challenging the 2011 redrawing of the legislative district boundaries, better known as gerrymandering. In 2012, Republicans won 60 of the 99 seats in the Assembly, despite winning only 48.6% of the two-party statewide vo…

A hearty “amen” to William R. Greene for his March 25 letter to the editor regarding the “narrow-minded, bigoted” diatribes of Leonard Pitts. Why does The Gazette continue to print this hate speech? I do enjoy hearing different political points of view. But Mr. Pitts only spews his antipathy…

There’s BV (before virus) and AV (after virus) time, and those BV days seem so long ago. Do you remember them? What do you miss most about the good ol’ days? That’s our poll topic for this week. Participate at GazetteXtra.com. The results are not scientific.

With all the “sheltering in place," many of us are making time to walk or ride bikes on our city’s great trail system. (Perhaps establishing this habit will be a good thing to come out of this experience!) With so many new people on the trails, here are a couple suggestions:
