My name is Jenna Riley and I am a senior at University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, studying social work and special education. I have worked with children since I was old enough to take care of them. This issue I am going to be discussing is very near and dear to my heart.

It appears that hate as an organizing emotion is more effective than love. It was effectively used by Hitler, Trump and now Brett Kavanaugh to energize their followers. Many people are moved to action when hatred and division are stoked by amoral, criminal leaders. Trump has reminded us that…

It is assumed that the legislation being created on the state level happens organically, in a process designed to benefit the legislators’ constituents. In most cases, nothing could be further from the truth. Readers should understand who is behind the regressive laws being introduced and ad…

We had concerns when the Verona Area School District acquired Stewart’s Woods, and now those concerns are justified. A big, loud no to the thought of developing or pursuing an access road through any portion of that parcel. Focus elsewhere for the new high school access.

My name is Katie Connor, I am going to be a senior at Verona Area High School this fall, and I am writing to talk about something that is very important to me.

Last April, I sprained my left knee, which was swollen in three different places. Instead of going to the doctor, I called a friend, Steve Stocker, who teaches warm water pool exercises to older adults at Madison Swim Academy’s Sun Prairie pool.

I completely share Mr. Ferolie’s dismay about President Trump’s ill-conceived tariffs (“Newsprint tariffs can’t be allowed to be permanent “). In my home state of Iowa, soybean farmers are suffering enormously as a result of the tariffs. Several weeks ago, an economist at Iowa State Universi…
