Virtual school is doing an amazing job preparing my daughter for adult life in the modern workforce. She wakes up, spends most of the day staring at a screen, then shuts it off with a sigh. Her eyes are bleary, her mind is blank, her expression is dull. Her psyche is uncharacteristically raw and...
This year we are celebrating 100 years of a woman’s right to vote. Women were long interested in the affairs of the country and regularly joined in women’s clubs to hear speakers and to discuss the social ills of the day.  A significant location where this occurred was Seneca Falls, NY.   In 1848...
All school district members need to vote for the return of our students to participate in their winter sport. At the very least, you owe that to the students and their families. The basketball teams have already proven that they can workout, practice and even participate in basketball tournaments...
The 10-year energy planning materials American Transmission Company has made available to Wisconsin ratepayers, thus far, are incomplete and unclear about developments of greatest interest to ratepayers and hundreds of Wisconsin communities.  The company, with hundreds of millions in annual revenue...

There have been some shots taken at my character over the last few months.  A website was even created in an attempt to demonstrate that I do not care for the children of this district.  There have been claims that I do not represent my constituents.  I have been silent, but I can be silent no more...
The first presidential debate was a disgrace. In a world where basic facts are regularly disputed, there are few who would argue with this assessment. Given the tone of civic discourse over the past four years and the truculent personality of the president, a sharp and combative debate was expected...
The first  Presidential Debate last night was neither “Presidential” nor a “Debate.” It was a pit fight between a killer Pit Bull and a sensible Border Collie. The only way this can be a fair and educational “Debate” is if the contestants are in separate rooms and their microphones are turned off...
