Our View: GO PACC bill deserves consideration
The first of seven scheduled Green Bay Packers TV blackouts occurred last Sunday against the Detroit Lions. With the team’s poor showing in a 19-7 defeat, some are probably glad they missed the game on TV. Packers blackouts for western Wisconsin viewers are nothing new. They’ve...

Our View: Fire contract needs to be reworked

Our View: Commons rehab project has potential
It’s time to come to terms with the fact that a new city library likely won’t be built at the Glover Park site where the Friday Memorial Library now sits. The debate is over, and $500,000 of grant money is on the table. It appears to be a done deal that the city’s new library...

Celebrating America’s Independence Day with fireworks is long-standing tradition. Nothing says summer like gazing skyward at explosions of blue, green, orange, yellow, purple, pink and red just after dusk on a warm evening. It’s a time to remember how thankful we are to live...
