Remembering the Novitiate

The estate on the edge of the Red River stepped into the annals of history when the Menominee Warrior Society invaded the property 15 minutes into the new year in 1975, took several hostages and demanded the Alexian Brothers give the the property, originally owned by American Indians, to the Menominee.

Reading reaps rewards for family book club

The Hillcrest Family Book Club is in its second year at Hillcrest Primary School in Shawano. Kris Going started the club after reading about other similar clubs in a publication.

"Fewer and fewer families are reading out loud together," Going said. "The mission was for families to get together and share their love of reading."

Three times a year the students are given the book a month ahead to take home.

"The parents are supposed to read to the child," Going said.

Column: Winter projects still on hold

We are past our first full week of January, and so far, it's more a lamb than a lion. Yeah, I know, those animals are more suited to the month of March; however, I think it is a fitting comparison for January, too.

While most people are not fans of below-zero weather, and huge snowstorms, it is expected this time of year, and when the expected doesn't happen, we tend to wonder what is up.

Column: The Lambeau experience

Coming into the house from my Saturday morning stint at the post office, I noticed the message light blinking on the land phone. My husband had just come in from the barn. Putting the phone on "speaker" we both listened to the caller asking if we'd like to purchase tickets to the next day's home Packers game against the Detroit Lions.

Eyes wide, I immediately looked at my husband, for we're both familiar with The Lambeau Experience. With a questioning, wordless look, I asked and he nodded.
