Why Waterfront Weekend is One of the Best of the Year
More than M&M Weekend, Thanksgiving or Christmas, Waterfront Festival Weekend is the best time of the year. Sure, the festival is a tribute to our location on beautiful Green Bay and to the many volunteers who work all year long to make it happen. But beyon...

On Opinions and Ethics
I changed the tag line on this blog to read, "Independent personal commentary on Leadership, Ethics, Politics, Media, History and Community in Marinette, Wis., and Menominee, Mich." Perhaps this will help readers understand that this is my personal opinion,...

Oops, They Did it Again
Dear Ted, While I am delighted that you issued a news release about the future of the assessor's job, I'm afraid a tutorial is in order. A news release is a factual document. You may certainly insert your opinion in the form of a quote, but please try to be...

In Support of UW-Marinette and Its Future
While there is no doubt some of the services and administrative departments of Wisconsin's 13 two-year campuses can be consolidated, spreading 83 position cuts across the system will be painful. I'm not privy to any of the background discussion that has led...

Endorsements and What They Mean
So Councilman Frank Pohlmann has endorsed incumbent Mayor Jean Stegeman with a letter to the editor in Tuesday's EagleHerald.  I give him props for signing his name. Endorsements are like job references. Which brings me around to the city manager. Even if S...

Roasted Green Beans with Carrots, Onions and Honey
I firmly believe that good meals need not be complicated. In fact, I have a three-items-on-the menu role. A savory with a compliment and a contrast. Simple meals, in my opinion, are more elegant. A favorite here is roasted chicken with fresh French bread an...

Slim and Subtle: French Green Beans with Lemon and New Red Onions
Green beans are my go-to vegetable in summer, especially when fresh from the farm. I love their sweet, subtle-but-earthy taste, and I think they pair well with chicken and fish. So I was delighted when one of my favorite growers asked me to try this summer'...

Third Ward voters have an easy choice in the Aug. 4 primary. Today's EagleHerald features a run down of the three choices: Incumbent Leon Felch, and two challengers, a former council member, Don Hudon, and a newcomer, Dennis Klitzke. The newspaper sought an...
