The one thing: Our story is the story of water
Several months ago, on my way into our weekly editorial meeting, a question came up during a discussion on MPR that was so thought-provoking, I commandeered it for my Inquiring Reporter question that week. I have continued to incorporate it into almost every interview I’ve done...

New dog teaching a not-so-old man new tricks
For the last few months, my wife and I had been talking about getting a new dog to keep our old Lab mix Captain company while we were away for work every day and to see if that would make him happier than he had been for a while. Unfortunately, we ended up having to put Captain down...

Great to be at the top
The announcement last week that New Richmond High School was once again ranked among the best of the best of all high schools in the state and the nation doesn’t necessarily come as a surprise. But it shouldn’t be an overlooked honor either, even though this is the third straight...

The soundtrack of our lives
Music has always been important to me. It’s always been playing in the back of my mind, beginning at a very young age and continuing to this day. Since the days when I first understood high fidelity and watched as my father acted as conductor of the London Philharmonic playing...

Living in the new world
A couple weeks ago for the inquiring reporter question, I asked, “how does the threat of terrorism impact your life?” The attacks in Brussels were still in the headlines and San Bernadino and Paris were not quite yet numb in our hearts and minds. I really wanted to know how real...

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.

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...

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,...
