What's up at WisCommunity in January 2021

January 24, 2021

So many projects, so little time. Once in a blue moon, I write a little article to let readers know what is going on here, and what you will see coming in the future. 

Who Are We?

WisCommunity is published by Steve Hanson, who is the primary employee at the moment. We are working on expanding our staff and may be taking on an intern and perhaps a part-time employee soon.

December 29, 2020

Yes, it's late for Festivus - but the airing of the grievances happens all year long. For a change I'm going to write about them. Don't worry, some time between now and New Years I'll talk about the things in 2020 that I am happy about.

Thankful

WKRP Turkey Drop

November 26, 2020

This Thanksgiving I am, despite the very odd year we have all had, thankful. I'm still here. I have two daughters who came into my life in a non-traditional way, and we're still a family, though we are half a country apart today. Next year for sure. Still, I cannot help but think of the many chairs at the Thanksgiving table that are empty today, some of them permanently.

Live Streaming of School Board meetings to be suspended

Many of our readers have been following the live streams of the Menomonie School Board meetings. We've been providing this live stream because we think that schools are important to the public, and because the school board is one of the very few government entities that has been meeting in person rather than virtually since the pandemic started.

Back to Normal

Normal in this case is referring to the website, not to anything else. Like many of you, I stayed up late last night - just long enough to hear the President of the United States threaten democracy. And to see that the election is going to be with us for some time in the future. I intended to leave the site in election mode until the national elections seemed clear, but that is clearly far off in the future, and there are other things to talk about in the interim.

Happy Halloween and enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

It is going to be a Halloween like we've never seen before. Only small stabs at Trick or Treat. No big organized parties. No costume parades. Please try to stay home and be safe tonight even though -yes, it's sad. I am going to watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show Live Stream tonight - last year I went out with friends to have a few drinks and some food, and to dress up a little. There's no denying, life is different and at the moment I don't see it getting better any time real soon.

It has been quite a while since I last wrote a community update. But life has been crazy here, and something else always gets in the way. Today I am fixing this.

We're interested in you, our readers. And we want to know more about what your interests are, and how we can serve the community better. Besides, I'm taking a class and am doing a research project as part of that. I'm asking that you consider taking a little time to help WisCommunity grow and improve.
