Frigg - live in Eau Claire - Don't miss them!

Frigg

Folk, fiddles, and fun come to Eau Claire on Sunday. We were planning on heading on over to the cities next week to see Frigg at the Cedar Cultural Center.

Snow in the Chippewa Valley Continues

Winter Landscape

State Senate interest as Moulton retires, Bernier announces

Rep. Kathy Bernier

This morning there was a considerable amount of interest generated in the 23rd State Senate District, as two-term State Senator Terry Moulton announced that he will not run for another term. This apparently did not come as a surprise to Representative Kathy Bernier, who very quickly followed up by announcing that she will be running for Moulton's...
