On behalf of the Mount Horeb Veterans Memorial Association, we would like to take this opportunity to thank SGT. Josh Jarvis for his help in arranging to have local law enforcement vehicles and the Mount Horeb Fire Department trucks escort the over 40 Wounded Veterans and First Responders...
The Mt. Horeb Pickleball group will be hosting two learning sessions if you would like to learn the basics of Pickleball and get on the courts and try it.  Come on Monday night, 9/19, 5:30pm or Saturday morning, 9/24, 10:00am to Viking Park (tennis courts behind the Middle School).  Each session...
I’ve been stunned recently when multiple people assumed that I actively use Facebook. “Do I look like the type of idiot who is wasting their life doing that?” I want to reply.  Sure, I’m an idiot. But I’m not that type of idiot. Sheesh.  Being confused, petty and incorrect are three things I do...

The opponents...

We often use the word ‘breathtaking’, but rarely it is literally true. Not long ago, however, I had an experience when it was, while wading and fly fishing a stream near Spring Green. It was one of those crystalline early mornings of summer, with the world full of promise, and on my second cast a...
It’s far better, for you and all those around you, to be happy than to be “good” in the hollow, performative sense. A good person who is miserable all the time will spread suffering and misery from person to person as they travel through life. A happy person of any political or ideological...
From time to time, people tell me they are under the impression I am a single parent, because I never mention my wife in these columns. Actually, my wife, who exists and is named Greta, doesn’t appear here for one particular reason.  The reason, of course, is that making humorous (read: true)...
