Winter Was Hard

Winter Was Hard

March 13, 2019

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.

Keeping On - Help!

The Beatles - Help!

February 4, 2019

As you have probably noticed, life on this web site has slowed somewhat the last few months. Those of you who know me personally are probably aware that we're dealing with serious family health issues at Cruiskeen Lawn, and that has made it difficult to get a lot of work done, much less make long-range plans.

No School Board Coverage tonight --- will be at candidate forum

October 22, 2018

Lack of resources strikes again. Rather than being at tonight's Menomonie School Board Meeting, we will be videotaping the 67th District Candidate Forum in Bloomer. If you're going, stop by and say hello to the guy with the video camera.  Details of the candidate forum (Wren Keturi and Rob Summerfield candidates) are below, as well as a link to tonight's Menomonie School Board agenda.

A few other items of interest this week:

You may have noted that postings have been slow recently. I am off in Chicago at the LION Publisher Summit at Columbia College. This is always a great experience for learning the latest in technology, strategy, and everything else about publishing local independent news.

September 30, 2018

We've been working on new ways for our readers to send articles on the web that they find interesting.  We did a little test of this quite a few months back, but I'd like to put this out to more people. We're using some software called Pearltrees. Basically the idea is that you can sign up with a Pearltrees account, and ask us to join in as a contributor.

You may or may not have found yourself sitting on the porch on a beautiful summery/fallsy day like today, and asked yourself "How can I help out that nice Wis.Community site?" Well, maybe not, but the fact of the matter is that I'm going to tell you anyway.

The Chippewa Valley Tweetstorm

August 28, 2018

It's been there for a while, but I thought I would point out the Chippewa Valley Tweetstorm on the front page at https://www.wis.community. It brings together the tweets of lots of people in the Chippewa Valley and across Wisconsin.  Go take a look!

I have a pile of possible projects for the site in the hopper.  I'd like to ask our readers what you think should be a priority.  They're all feasible.  Some of the require the kindness of strangers. Let me know what you think:  If you have other ideas, log in to the site and leave a comment.

In preparation for tonight's Planning Meeting, I've put together a slideshow about some of the goals for this site, where we've been and where I hope we are going. I'm putting up a copy of the slide show to give you some idea of what the first half of tonight's meeting will be like and  what the current plans are.  We're hoping that members of the community will show up tonight and give us their ideas. We will be meeting at 6:30 at Lazy Monk Brewery in Eau Claire.
