The new arrival
We got the call two weeks ago. A friend learned during a family get together that her nephew’s family was about to get the boot from their landlord if a certain four-legged mutt named Lilllee wasn’t sent packing in the next day or so.

Willi Nilli: So that's what it feels like to be an adult
Up until this last weekend, I hadn’t really felt like much of an actual, real life adult, but more like some pseudo-adult who would always let his inner child sit on his shoulder like those cartoon angels or devils that you see on TV. I had always thought I’d be about 25 percent...

Editor's Notebook: Please don't say 'Happy Memorial Day'
It has always bugged me how Memorial Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day and other national holidays are mass marketed as shopping days instead of what...

My Point Is: Let the debate continue
I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for lists. If the link on the page says something like, “Top 10 trends from the 1980s you’ll never see again” or “Top 20 reasons the Minnesota Twins have been terrible the last four years,” I’ll click on it. Why? I’m curious to see if...

At the Speed of Life: My mom

Willi Nilli: TV killed the radio star
As I alluded to in my last column, my perfect day would be in the middle of the winter, snow falling outside and my favorite TV show or movie playing on a big screen TV. It was pointed out to me a few days ago that with my confirmation as a TV and movie junkie (as well as a lover...

Editor's Notebook: My path to becoming a storm spotter
From the first time I watched the “Wizard of Oz” as a child, I was interested in tornadoes. Growing up in New Richmond — the site of what is now the ninth-deadliest tornado in U.S. history — helped turn that interest into something of an obsession. When I was 6 years old,...

My Point Is: I know what Charlie Brown feels like
An 8-year-old watches his favorite National Football League team have a successful season, qualify for the playoffs, win two games on the road and narrowly fall in the conference championship game, and therefore miss out on a Super Bowl berth. The eight-year-old was dejected and...

At the Speed of Life: When a lake takes a life
The ice on our lake melted in a way I have never seen before this year, from the center to the shore. It was a blustery but sunny Saturday morning, so we decided to get the kayaks wet and see what was percolating in and around our little bit of paradise. New ducks had been arriving...

'Boring' is in the eye of the beholder
Every month, like clockwork, my turn comes up to write the weekly New Richmond News staff column, and every month I come up with a blank for most of the week before my column is due. I don’t know what it is, but it is always hard for me to come up with ideas for a column even though...

Editor's Notebook: It's time to hit the trails
The transition from winter to spring this year was early and sudden. One week we were shoveling out from another snowstorm, and the next we were enjoying 50- and 60-degree temperatures. Snow was gone in an instant, and people were out and about enjoying all sorts of outdoor activities. Windows...

My Point Is: Being a teacher is something I couldn’t do
Who doesn’t think about it? While experiencing a frustrating portion of your job, your mind goes, “I wish I was doing something else.” I’ve done it before and without question the answer is an easy one: teacher. A little background, first. For those who didn’t read the...

At the Speed of Life: How cool is school?
How many times have you found yourself saying, boy I wish they had that back when I was in school? If you read our paper you know I recently wrote a story about the first robotics competition ever held at the Somerset Middle School. The excitement in the gym during the competition...
