Editorial: At last - new bridge in sight
The St. Croix Valley and the entire region has received good news--it finally appears the new Stillwater (Minn.) bridge will become a reality. The U.S. House of Representatives voted 339-80 to exempt the proposed new St. Croix River Crossing project from the restrictions of the Federal...

Editorial: Madison judge's poor judgment
Just when you think you've seen it all in Wisconsin politics--you get to see something even more bizarre. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan has issued a temporary injunction on preventing further use of the state's voter ID law. That alone was a questionable act--it seems...

Editorial: Make pet gifts, returns happy
Easter's almost here and with it comes the traditional signs of the season. Colored eggs, baskets of candy, bunnies and baby chicks jump to mind first. These often are given as gifts for the holiday. But a rabbit isn't a perfect present, nor is a chick. In fact, giving either for...

Editorial: Look out for scams
Anyone can fall prey to scam artists, but certain groups are more susceptible than others. Youths ages 20 to 29 are likely to be victims of identity theft, according to the Wisconsin Bureau of Consumer Protection. They need to learn the importance of protecting their identities,...

Editorial: Keep winter readiness in mind
No doubt this winter has been a wimp, but it wouldn't be unusual for the old man to try for one last hurrah late in the season. Cold weather region dwellers still need to be prepared for whatever nature can throw their way. That applies whether they stay close to the hearth or venture...

Editorial: Use caution when on-the-go
Winter's here and that means the potential to get hit with an onslaught of ice, snow and limited visibility, making driving difficult--if not impossible--at times. To survive treacherous winter driving conditions, motorists must be patient and follow common-sense precautions, the...

Editorial: Conquer stress sensibly
It's a high-pressure world we live in, with ever-increasing responsibilities. No wonder stress looms large for many of us. How we deal with it can make a difference. Some have turned to smoking. Certainly not an ideal remedy, considering the potential devastation smoking has on...

Editorial: We're number one! We're number one!
Unfortunately, we're not talking about the Wisconsin Badgers football team or the Green Bay Packers. The sad truth is this: of all 50 states, Wisconsin is number one in binge drinking. Not only does the Badger State boast the largest number of average drinks per binge occasion (nine),...

Editorial: Give candidates filing break
Last week's editorial reminded voters about the new legal requirement for 2012 elections to have a photo I.D. This week, we ask our legislators to do something about the poor time frame forced on those who wish to become candidates for local office. Candidacy registration, as required...

Editorial: Voters must come prepared

Editorial: Time for personal inspection
A new year is often a time for celebration, but it also presents us with a time to focus on positive changes in our lives. Although Jan. 1 is nothing more than a date on a calendar, there is nothing wrong with using the date as a distinct time to change something in our lives. As...
