Our View: Vote on Tuesday
According to the Government Accountablility Board, we could expect that about 40 percent of those across the state who are eligible to vote in the Tuesday, April 5, Spring General Election will do so. That number could even push a bit higher in this area given the fact that there...

Editorial: Celebrate safely
By the time you read this the St. Patrick’s Day festivities around the country and especially right here in New Richmond may be over. But that doesn’t matter, because the message of this particular column will apply to any and all public celebrations that we attend and love throughout...

Editorial: Progress... it's a good thing
As we walked around in our Bermuda shorts and Hawaiian shirts this past weekend, allowing the sun to bathe our faces, arms and legs in its warm glow, many exclaimed the coming of spring. Though we all know how Mother Nature, or more specifically, Old Man Winter, can fool us at any...

Editorial: The changing political landscape
The recent announcements by representatives Dean Knudson and John Murtha stating they will not be seeking re-election have caused wrinkles in time and space here in Western Wisconsin. Both Republicans have stepped back and stated that it’s right for them to spend more time with...

Thankful for the sacrifices made
Sitting in the warmth of my office and listening to the emergency scanner go off Monday morning and afternoon got me to thinking about just how lucky we are -- how lucky we all are. Monday morning, the members of the Roberts and New Richmond fire departments were called out to battle...

Our View: Successful first chapter for 2015 graduates

Our View: Local government requires participation
Typically, when we New Richmond News reporters cover public meetings we are one of just a handful of people in the audience. In fact, at some municipal committee meetings, we might be the only people at the meeting who aren’t voting members or municipal staff. We think it’s shame...

Our View: Schools must ask for your money, but not cities or counties
The St. Croix County Board last week approved a $20 million bonding package for a new county-run nursing home with a dementia care unit. Once completed the facility will replace the county’s aging and publicly subsidized nursing home. Geothermal heating and cooling units will add...

Our View: Skaters should speak now or forever hold their peace
