I remember the 1990s as a normal time. It was, for lack of a better term, my time. The era in which I discovered the world and began to question all there was to see and hear. In hindsight, however, I’m starting to wonder if it was actually a surreal thought experiment. For example, every hit song...
I was born, baptized and confirmed in the One, Holy, Apostolic and Catholic Church – I have my ticket punched to heaven.  Although I no longer subscribe to the specifics of the Church’s catechism, I also don’t reject them outright, and still enjoy returning to Mass on occasion.  The Holy, after all...
Being on the cover of Forbes magazine is a horrendous life goal. The only way to get there is to have a lot of money and having a lot of money is the easiest way to be miserable, vapid and depressed. Yet Forbes is name dropped in pop songs all the time as a vital waypoint of success.  This is the...

I’d just like to congratulate the Village President (Randy Littel), Board, Planning Commission and administrator (Nic Owen) for doing more to ruin the small town character of our village in the past couple of years than in the previous quarter century. My wife and I have lived in Mount Horeb for...
“Autocrat,” a word few of us thought about since high school. Definition? A ruler who insists on complete obedience from others. Tragically, we are now facing the reality of such leaders; Putin and Kim Jong-un are good examples. It would be good to think that we are far away from an autocracy. But...
Medieval people believed a wolf could steal your voice if it saw you before you saw it. Because of this, if you were with friends and stopped speaking, someone would often exclaim,  “Lupus est in fabula!” which means “Wolf in the story!”* I am unlikely to bump into many gray wolves where I live....
On page three of last week’s Mount Horeb Mail our Rep. Sondy Pope has restated her opposition to the Cardinal-Hickory Creek power transmission line that is being built to bring green wind energy to our area.
