Computers have made examining government records easier than ever. The smallest townships across Wisconsin post the meeting agendas and minutes online. And websites for government agencies at all levels contain an enormous amount of other information.

As I write today about the classrooms of 2018, I can’t help but reflect on the 42 years I taught in middle and high school. Gone are the blackboards, overhead projectors and televisions that used to assist in teaching.

Veteran remembers two different homecomings

Written by

To the editor,
When I completed my enlistment in 1973 I was so happy I kissed the pavement at the Los Angeles airport. Once inside LAX I walked past some protesting hippies. They were cordoned off, but one young man about my age yelled out “baby-killer” and spit in my direction. I suddenly felt very self-conscious in my Marine uniform. I just wanted to get my discharge and go home, so just kept walking.

Today’s rhetoric recalls horror of atomic bombs

Written by

To the editor,
The angry, strained rhetoric between our president and the leader of North Korea brings back memories of the atom bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 at the end of World War II. Historian Paul Ham has written a book on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He states the Nagasaki bomb was subject to a force equal to 22,000 tons of TNT. More than 100,000 people were killed by the two bombs and thousands suffered severe burns.

Science needs support, better funding

Written by

To the editor,
Democritus (470-380 BC) taught his students that everything was made up of atoms. Eratosthenes (276-195 BC) measured the circumference of the Earth and assumed that it was not flat but a sphere. And then man was plunged into what is termed the Dark Ages. It took man some 2,000 years to regain the knowledge. People like Galileo, Dalton and Newton stood up for science.
