Life is like candy. Sometimes it’s sweet. Sometimes it’s sour. Last September, we had just opened our candy store, the Sugar Troll in Mount Horeb, and then there was a spike in COVID cases.

Dear editor, We will cast two enthusiastic votes for Anna Halverson for the 80th Assembly District. Anna shares our passion for a fair and just Wisconsin. As of this writing, 23,768-gun deaths have torn communities and families apart in 2022. There have been 338 mass shootings this year alone. Anna...
For anyone considering voting for Republicans in the midterm election I ask you to consider the latest evidence of who they really are. All 208 Republicans in the house voted against an amendment to “require top national security agencies to report on and combat white supremacist and neo-Nazi...
As a longtime Verona resident and City Alder, I am voting for Anna Halverson for State Assembly and urge voters to join me! I have known Anna for many years as a Moms Demand Action Leader, a mom, and as a friend, and she is best qualified to be our next Assembly representative. Anna is the only...
