Growing a green thumb
Though I understand that people change as they get older, it still amazes me there are many things that I am now finding myself enjoying or wanting to do more of after having little to no interest when I was a teenager and throughout college. Most people know that for the last few...

Baseball and the start of a new summer
Though most know me as a huge football fan -- most notably a giant Green Bay Packers fan -- what you may not know about me is that baseball has always been the sport that has tugged at my heartstrings. And with the Packers doing next to nothing in NFL free agency while we await the...

The first step is admitting you have a problem
No, it’s not to the point, in which I have receipts from when I went out to eat from 2005 or dust bunnies that have gathered over the last six months, but if I wanted to find baby toys my daughters played with (now ages 8 and 5) I could find them in our basement. When we moved into...

Keep it transparent
March 13-19 we celebrated Sunshine Week, those days in March when the spirit of the state’s laws that guide the open records and open meetings regulations are held up to the light of day and praised for their importance.

Make a difference: It could be the difference
I used to take the same meandering route once a month, sometimes twice, from our place to hers always leaving enough time to arrive a few minutes early just in case there was some last minute assistance required. There rarely was. Donna lived by herself in a clean, comfortable condo...

Plays, concerts and sports ... Oh my!
Since my family moved to Hudson in 2001, I’ve always really enjoyed being so close to a major city (in this case two), as well as its suburbs, and all the luxuries it has afforded me and my family.

Political signs...follow the rules
All of a sudden we find ourselves nearly midway through the month of March -- it’s at this time of year when we all look out one day to see the ground frozen and the dirty snow overtaking the days of the pristine white landscapes that formerly adorned the area. That’s followed...

Kitty and the life of a pet owner
Growing up, I lived in a household that always had pets ... mostly cats and dogs, but with the occasional bird or fish. However, like any boy, it was the dogs and cats that always caught my attention and love. The dogs in my life included Cindy, a Lab/golden retriever/Heinz 57 mix...

It could have been worse...much worse
My day started on Wednesday, Feb. 3, with the news St. Croix Central would be two hours late as a result of the snowstorm the night before.

Fundamental change: We must be the first to lead
It starts with a moment that can change history. A spark of hope that snaps us out of our over extended, multi-tasking, constantly consuming lives allowing us to glimpse what the future can be, a chance to be better than we are, not just a little better, much better parents, teachers,...

Willi Nilli: Let’s (not) reboot it one more time
Has anyone else noticed the sheer number of unneeded remakes, reboots or “re-imaginings” that have been hitting the big screens (and small for that matter) over the last few years? Sometimes I think I must be the only person who notices since movie studios continue to think that...

Willi Nilli: Five times as nice: Bison, road trips and friends
For the fifth straight year, I made the trek to Frisco, Texas, -- along with my best friend Chris and his family -- to see my alma mater (the Bison of North Dakota State University) knock off another potential usurper to the Football Championship Subdivision National Championship...

Twas the Night Before Christmas and the fix was in
I have a good, good friend, let’s call him Joey, not to protect his privacy, but because that’s his name. He is the kind of fellow other fellows admire - a man’s man. He’s smart in a funny kind of way, loyal like your best retreiver and has one of the biggest hearts I have...

Let’s start with sitting here in my warm cozy office looking out over a blustery November norwester churning up my pond into a mini Lake Superior whitecaps included. November has always been my favorite month for writing. The often grey skies accompanied by the “call of the wild”...

Students learning to be part of the community
I’ve been snapping all-conference sports photos for more than 30 years. There have been cute photos, rushed photos and the standard, stand-against-the-wall photos. On Friday, I got to take the most unique all-conference photo I’ve ever shot. And after I thought about it,...
