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 …

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…

Last week’s article about the school board’s decision to continue with a mask mandate was very confusing. Apparently, the majority of those at the meeting - including some teachers - were in favor of removing this silly mask mandate. And yet, when it went to a vote, it was continued! Why? We…

At the busiest time of the year for the Postal Service, just 12 days before Christmas, my husband realized he needed to renew his passport. He filled out the necessary forms, had a photo taken, enclosed his check and passport, and sent all via Priority Mail .

The variety of things you can find on YouTube is astounding!! Subjects from pyramids to videos of car crashes. This channel on my TV keeps me thinking that every night after work I can choose subjects I otherwise would not see on regular TV. Take for instance the independent reporting on the…

January 2020 news spread quickly about COVID-19. Fast forward to March/April—the CDC, FDA, and WHO are all giving guidance as to how to prevent the spread of COVID-19. State and Local heath departments echoed the national guidelines: If symptomatic stay home, get tested. If positive for COVI…

I would like to reply to Mr. Christianson’s letter last week. These governors (Walz and Evers) to me are only victims of a greater crime. The crime of not being true to themselves and listening to a higher power that is speaking loudly today to all those who hate what is true, noble, just, p…

With the latest mandate from our esteemed Governor Evers, coupled with the draconian shutdowns of most private businesses in Minnesota, it’s apparent that these two - along with others - are determined to use this virus to keep us all under their thumbs and needing to rely on the benevolence…

When I was a kid, every Sunday our family would drive to my grandparents’ farm. We drove for about an hour through the Wisconsin countryside, past seemingly endless herds of cows all living on their own picture-perfect farms. After lunch we would wander around and visit the barn, the cows in…

We have some new heroes to thank. Of course, we’ve learned during the past four plus months that our EMTs, fire and rescue, medical personnel and police officers are true heroes. So are the people who have worked hard to get food to the stores and stocked the shelves so we can eat.

At this point I think we can all agree on how terrible our current president is doing at his job. Sure, we all get a few extra dollars in our paychecks, there are a few more jobs available out there, but at what cost, we all hate each other. This is his doing, not Obama's or anyone else, it'…
