Brooklyn is our latest Kid of the Week. She’s three years old and she lives in Belleville. She was nominated by her cousin Caroline, who says: “Brooklyn is never not happy.

A couple of Saturdays ago, Ann and I visited a spot that zoomed up our list of favorite Madison hangouts after a single visit. The Biergarten at Olbrich Park opened at the end of June. Milwaukee has had public beer gardens in parks for the last several summers, but Olbrich is the first one in […]

It’s family reunion season, and mine was earlier this month. My family is from outside Dodgeville, in a place called Linden. We have a bunch of family farms in the area, and this year we had the reunion at my cousin Mike’s house. He and his family live in the house that belonged to my […]

You’ve heard the news stories about how bad the blue green algae is this year and how sick it can make you and your pets if you get into water with those algae floating in it. That sort of news certainly gives me a healthy dose of fear and caution. On the Fourth of July, […]

Wednesday nights are pretty special on the east side of Madison, where my family and I live. The Capitol View Farmers Market has morphed into this fantastic weekly community festival. It’s in the space across the street from the Great Dane on Cottage Grove Road. The MSCR Fit to Go van is there with tons […]

The announcement this morning that Brennan’s Markets are closing at the end of September is a shock to everybody—especially to those of us from Monroe. Brennan’s was established in Monroe in 1942, so almost none of us can remember when they weren’t part of our town. If my memory is faulty the following details, I […]

Luka is our latest Kid of the Week. He just turned two, and was nominated by his grandmother, Arlene, who says: “Luka is bilingual and speaks English and German.
