The dogs are missing me.
Over the years, I have always come to appreciate M. Night Shyamalan’s movies because I have always learned new lessons about film making and writing. Some of my favorite films of his are The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs. However, I have probably learned the most from many of his movies…
Let me start by saying I’m not a basketball fan. I enjoy watching a good high school basketball game in person, hearing the squeaking shoes, holding your breath as the ball arcs toward the basket.
… “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, r…
It has been a little while since I had a chance to write a movie review and I was really excited when Jason said they would love to have them in the paper again. Since my last review I have set up a YouTube channel where I talk about the art of screenwriting. If you would like to see the cha…
Greetings from the Baldwin-Woodville Area School District! The summer of 2021 is off to a great start and much more enjoyable than 2020. I hope you are having a wonderful summer and finding time to relax with family and friends.
Imagine that a developer has been lobbying your local town board to approve a controversial development. You file a record request asking for all emails between that developer and the board’s three members.
Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
What causes quarrels and what causes fights among you? Is it not this, that your passions are at war within you?...Do you suppose it is to no purpose that the Scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit that he has made to dwell in us”? But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “G…
The global pandemic had big impacts on just about every sector, from the neighborhood lemonade stand, to tourism spending, and the collection of an extra half-cent on taxable purchases by county government in Wisconsin.
My options were limited on what to do while I wasn’t working and especially when I couldn’t drive for the first four weeks.
Have you voted in the last four years? If not, you probably have received a postcard from the Wisconsin Elections Commission in the mail. If you care to stay registered to vote, you must sign it and mail it back—that is, if you haven’t moved. However, if you HAVE moved, visit https://myvote…
I lived in Baldwin from 1964, when I was four years old, until 2017. I did a lot of things in the time I was there. Apparently, I was a “free range kid” and the entire village was my playground. Many older homeowners used to tell me they remember me using their backyard as a shortcut to get …
“…for you know that your brothers and sisters in all the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering. And after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you.”
June is weeding month in our household. The garden needs weeding, the flower beds need weeding, the raspberry patch needs weeding… and sometimes the asphalt driveway and concrete patio need some weeding too.
What a crazy year it has been. I can’t believe that a year ago I was the one running for Miss Baldwin, how times flies when you are having fun! From the stay-at-home order to wearing face masks everywhere this has definitely been an interesting year for royalty. Although we had many setbacks…
I suppose you could say a parade looks like a bunch of people excited about being in traffic. I see much more than that though.
In 1939, when it looked as if Great Britain was going to be invaded or bombed by Nazi Germany, a public relations campaign was pondered. Millions of large posters reading “Keep Calm and Carry On” were printed, but never used. The phrase originated as a slogan in the spring before World War I…
It is hard to believe that we are half way through 2021 already. June has been a busy little month so far. Because our daughter is on the Miss Amery court, we are entering our full-swing parade season and of course there have been grad parties galore.
With a population of approximately 4,000 people, Baldwin is classified as a village, seems like a growing city, but in reality it is a good ol’ Midwest small town. It is made up of families that have called this place home for generations, newer community members that are still getting sett…
As you read this, I am laying on a beach in Costa Mujeres, Mexico. I am pretty sure I have a large drink with a tiny umbrella in my hand. My husband is probably fanning me…oh who I am kidding? He is probably at the resort’s golf course.
Grantsburg Baseball lost an icon last week. Virginia Ryan was a fixture at Pirate baseball games for parts of six decades. Virginia loved going to her sons’ and grandsons’ ballgames, and she enjoyed keeping her own scorebook, not only for personal records-but also to be an active part of eac…
It’s once again graduation season. The school year is coming to a formal close and even though this year has been closer to normal, the rites of passage are once again upon us.
We have all seen the high school reunion movies where the class athlete of the past is reliving their glory days and their physique makes it obvious they have picked up more doughnuts than barbells in recent years. During the same movie it is common for there to be a character who was shy an…
They say it feels good to be king. There were days this was probably true for Henry VII, Edward VI, Richard III and Charles II. It seems being adored as royalty is now also the situation for Aaron Rodgers.
