My 88-year-old mother and I went to Tehran three years ago on a friendship/study tour for two weeks. We rode on a small tour bus with a handful of world travelers and Unitarians. We visited archeological sites and museums, mosques, palaces, tourist stops and an elementary school. We donated …

It is trite to say that adolescents are confused about their sexuality. Now they have to decide whether they are boys or girls, with the encouragement that now declaring themselves a different sex is a way to be admired by peers. Some try it for a while and then go back, like with a fad diet…

Fire departments today face many challenges such as increasing call volumes, increasing resource demands and limited staffing (career and volunteer). With no additional state shared revenue and the negative impact the expenditure restraint program has on growing communities, fire departments…

In September, the state Department of Public Instruction manipulated school performance data to obscure the performance of students participating in Wisconsin’s school choice programs. DPI withheld timely release of data showing school choice students outperformed students at public schools.

As the Democrats pounded the final nails into their party's coffin at the impeachment inquiry, the only notable elephant in the room was truth, an arch enemy of many Democrats. Testimonies were based on hearsay, opinions, and uncertainties, and there wasn't even an iota of a crime except the…

On Monday, The Gazette published a story (Page 1A) about Orfordville which portrays the town as trashy and redneck. From the first paragraphs, it’s disheartening to read about the village board president chewing tobacco during a professional interview. Although it’s understandable if the int…

Regarding the man lying in Monterey Park, he definitely needs a love patrol to bring him food for breakfast, lunch and dinner and show him kindness and love. Here is a man with a soul who is very mentally ill. Here is a man who is in desperate need of the milk of kindness and love were he ev…

It is disgraceful when those who commit war crimes go free and those who expose war crimes are in prison. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange truthfully published content that the American people should know. The founders of our nation put freedom of the press in the First Amendment. Without kn…

My Central States multiemployer pension is projected to run out of money in 2025. The plan's insurer, the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC), will also go insolvent in 2025 unless there is federal legislation. My modest pension and the pension of 1.3 million retirees in the U.S. wo…

The recent paving of County MM (Ruger Avenue) between South Wright Road and Highway 14 means the project is getting closer to final completion. This one-mile segment underwent a significant transformation in 2019 as it was converted from a narrow two-lane road to an urban standard, including…

I'm writing in response to the Oct. 16 op-ed by Bernard Weinstein, the associate director of an oil-backed think tank. We have all seen commentary from out-of-state special interests about the renewable fuel standard (RFS) and biofuels--but it's important that our leaders listen to those of …

The United States purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867, less than two years after the Civil War. It was an unpopular transaction, and the move was dubbed “Seward’s Folly” after the U.S. Secretary of State William Seward. The price was about two cents per acre. For the next 92 years, it was g…

The first impeachment proceeding I saw was for Richard Nixon. His campaign had used CIA contacts to spy on his opponent, and Nixon was accused of using the power of his office to impede the investigation of the spying. Nixon repeatedly said the information he was hiding was covered by "execu…

Republicans are screaming about taxpayer money being spent by Democrats who are fulfilling their constitutional duty investigating a whistleblower complaint. Of course, nothing is said about the taxpayer money that was spent reinvestigating Hillary Clinton’s e-mails only to prove once again …
