Everything I need to know about politics I learned in fourth grade
When school started in the fall of 1952, I was a fourth grader at Balsam Lake Elementary School in rural northwestern Wisconsin. My teacher, Mrs. Olson, encouraged discussion about the upcoming Presidential election. President Truman had decided not to run for a second term. Would...

Today’s political scene filled with snake oil salesmen
Many years ago and a lifetime away I was movie mogul. No, not the type that owns a production studio and is seen sitting atop piles of money. As a young man, I worked in and eventually managed a couple of motion picture theaters just as the video age came to the forefront of our lives...

Willi Nilli -- Pokemon Go: Gotta catch them all!
For the last few weeks, the world has been overrun with Pokemon Go players hitting the streets to find that rare Dratini, to hatch their 10K eggs and to level up their characters to Level 20 to get their hands on Ultra Balls so they can “catch them all.” I’ve heard a lot of...

One thing: Peace

INHUMAN NEWMAN: With every day, a battle against cancer is won
Having been deeply entrenched in sports my entire life, it has helped me to take a competitive approach to most things. Especially so, in my battle with leukemia. And every day that I am still here, I feel I have won a battle. A cancer diagnosis blind-sides you, like a hit from a...
