St. Croix River waters rose this week to levels not seen in more than 25 years. The National Weather Service reported a crest at Stillwater of 88.48 feet, making it the seventh-highest crest. It exceeded levels of nearly 88 feet reached most recently in 1993, a year that saw slightly higher levels than in 2014. St. Croix County officials previously said river levels at Stillwater are generally on par with what Hudson receives; the weather service does not report levels at Hudson.

When women were intentionally left out of the U.S. Constitution, it was the first wife and mother of a U.S. President (Barbara Bush was the second), Abigail Adams, who told her husband, John, to "not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands.

If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to forment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation."(written on March 31, 1776)
