First day of School: A rollercoaster of emotions
The alarm clock rang, they jumped out of bed, took a shower, ate breakfast, brushed their teeth and got dressed. They had a big smile on their face, knowing no matter what happened the rest of their day, the next five to 10 minutes would be a highlight of their day.

Making the case for community
I grew up in a small town. Nine years ago, Val and I decided to move from Chicago back to a small town, a small rural Midwest town.

A lot has changed since the last time we spoke
For those of you who don’t know, I recently said “I do” (well “I will,” but it sounds better/more traditional if I say “I do”) and married the love of my life, and best friend, Jenna in the small Iowa town of Hawarden. Following the wedding, Jenna and I spent an all...

Taking a step back, then forward
As the new guy on the block, it’s time that I spent a few words on just why I’ve accepted the position as editor of this great newspaper and in this great City of New Richmond. Let’s back up a little bit. I grew up just down the road in Glenwood City and as a graduating Hilltopper...

My day in New York City

You never know what you had until it's gone
I don’t know if it was just me, but throughout high school and college I never really saw the need for naps.

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...

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...

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...
