Students UNITE! from UW Stout and community send supplies to Standing Rock

Water is Life
November 11, 2016

On Thursday, Nov. 11 members of the Menomonie community joined with Students UNITE! from UW-Stout to send money, food, firewood, and supplies to those protecting the water at Standing Rock. The event was a huge success, meeting the fundraising goals and sending the surplus to the Standing Rock Defense Fund. The event took place at the Acoustic Cafe in downtown Menomonie. Kids and adults made signs to send along to Standing Rock, and a truck full of firewood and supplies is making it's way there right now. 

This is another great example of groups in Menomonie making a difference and creating better community - thanks to everyone who participated, and particularly to Casey Green for heading up the event at The Acoustic.

The Dunn County Board last night passed a six month moratorium on CAFO expansion of more than 10% on farms of over 1000 animals in the county. This is in response to a very large expansion of Cranberry Creek Farm planned for the county, and was prompted by many questions raised about the ability of the farm owners to manage runoff, and some serious issues with the application and the ability of the DNR to properly consider the issues  in awarding a permit.

Gene Wilder DIes

Gene Wilder - Young Frankenstein (1974) - Puttin' on the Ritz

August 29, 2016

Sadly, Gene Wilder died yesterday at the age of 83. Mr. Wilder has delighted me and made me laugh over the years, often at times when I most needed it. I particularly continue to be amazed at his performance in Young Frankenstein, one of my favorite films on many levels. He apparently died from complications from Alzheimer's and had kept his diagnosis a secret in an attempt to not upset his fans.
