More big changes in Chippewa Valley Retail

Retail in the Chippewa Valley and across the state continues to shape-shift. Two announcements today of particular interest:

Jeff Smith - You be the Judge of the Budget at Our Listening Sessions

Senator Jeff Smith

Ever since my two daughters were young and able to ice skate, I attended their figure skating practices and competitions. I’ve respected the work and dedication these young women put in for such an incredible sport. I became so interested that I started volunteering as the announcer for the Eau Claire Figure Skating Club competitions.

Winter Was Hard

Winter Was Hard

Winter continues to unleash upon us. More stories are coming on about barn collapses, accidents, and more caused by the incredible weather we have been experiencing. Today almost all of the area schools are closed due to water covering the roads, making them impassable. I am at the moment sitting out at the farm and wondering if I will be able to get into town tomorrow for the Red Cedar Watershed Conference.
