Viewpoint: Getting Wisconsin veterans the benefits they earned
As I talk with veterans and their families throughout western and central Wisconsin, I continue to hear about issues they are having cutting through the bureaucracy at the Department of Veterans Affairs to access the benefits they have earned. We are here to help.

Viewpoint: Farmers advocate for agriculture and rural communities
Farmers from several western Wisconsin counties traveled to Madison as part of the annual Ag Day at the Capitol. On the day Gov. Scott Walker delivered his State of the State address, farmers shared with their legislators, the state of things in their world.

Literally Lorna column: Live by a rule
Do you live by a rule, one to which you abide? For example, the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you'd like done to you. How about lead by example? This is a good one, especially if you're a parent, but sometimes you slip. Maybe your motto is "Be true to thine self." Whatever it is,...

Letter to the editor: The simple things; Where has compassion gone?
At this time, our Gov. is in shutdown mode. Too bad it spoiled Mr. Trump's big fundraising deal at his Florida hideout. It won't stop the bigwig Republican donors, including the CEO's of several businesses that just got a big gob of money dropped in their laps due to the tax change....

Last month, I wrote a piece entitled "The Senator's Surprise" explaining Sen. Vinehout's response to my support for an Article V, Convention of States to end federal overspending, power overreach, and oppressive intrusion into our lives. The states have the means to cause the federal...

Viewpoint: Kicking us when we are down
The little girl walked home through the snow. She took the longer route. Mom asked her to stop at the store to buy milk. She touched the coupons and note. She couldn't lose them. Mom was so sick with cancer.

Sarah Nigbor column: The circle of life
It's been awhile since I wrote a column, and one of my resolutions in the new year is to connect with our readers more, now that I have my feet under me a bit more solidly since becoming regional editor (at least I think I do!) One way of doing that is helping people get to know...

Viewpoint: How haste empowers the 'Shadow Legislature'
"Who put all this policy in the budget?" I whispered to my colleague the night the budget passed. "Groups," he said glumly. "I call it the 'Shadow Legislature.'" These groups are often from outside Wisconsin and often funded by large donors. Behind the scenes, they push for policy,...

Viewpoint: Staying warm this winter
These last few weeks have been bitter cold, even by Wisconsin standards. For many of our rural residents who depend on propane to heat their homes and businesses, historically cold weather this early in the winter causes concern. As many know, in 2014 nearly 250,000 residents and...

Viewpoint: Why are my property taxes so high?
"I'm paying higher property taxes and I haven't had a raise in years." Sound familiar? You are not alone. Property taxes are a regressive tax — the tax falls harder on those with less means. Property tax bills take a bigger bite out of the paychecks of people who have not received...
