This past month I’ve been making regular visits to one of my favorite spots, a beautiful spring near the house. The spring is replete with watercress, as it has been all winter, and I know of no other 200 square feet on Earth that offers as much nourishment for both body and soul. From beneath a...
After 28 years, Moonhill will close its doors  After 28 years on the Trollway the moon is retiring over the hill at Moonhill Mercantile. If it takes a village to raise a child it certainly takes a village to support a business. And you have been the most awesome support for Mary Jane’s dream I have...
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...

First, I want to thank Matt Geiger, the Mount Horeb Mail editor, for his excellent coverage of all our candidates for the Spring election. With eleven candidates running for three seats on the MHASD School Board, four candidates for three positions for the MH Village Board and two candidates for...
I would like to express my appreciation to all who supported my candidacy in the April 5 election. I am honored and humbled to have been elected as a Mount Horeb Trustee. I will strive to keep the “public” securely rooted in my public service.  I would also like to convey my congratulations to all...
We sat in a friend’s farmhouse this winter, eating dinner and commiserating about life, weeping and gnashing our teeth, as is so fashionable these days. My heart is rarely in it, this ubiquitous complaining that we all do, because its source is the conviction that we all deserve to live in perfect...
To the editor,   These days it seems that political leaders who are dedicated to public service instead of partisan gamesmanship are in short supply.  Those of us who live in Southwestern Dane County have been fortunate to have one such leader, Pat Downing, represent us on the County Board. Pat has...
