Angie Hong column: The do-good guide to gardening
There's no such thing as a free lunch but, if you know where to look, you might get free (or discounted) plants for a garden instead. The east...

Viewpoint: Adapting to a changing climate
I'll never forget the time that I got lost running on the trails at Jay Cooke State Park in the pouring rain. My friends and I were up north for a 1980s-style girls weekend camping trip (more on that another time) and I was training for my second Grandma's Marathon. Early in the morning,...

There was a whisper of spring in the air, tickling the needles of the pines and ruffling the feathers of the phoebes. I took a deep breath and smiled.

Viewpoint: Enjoy nature's changes happening all around
To everything, there is a season. Fall bursts in with a flash of beauty, as brilliant leaves in red and gold tumble to the ground. The local orchards and farms overflow with visitors coming to celebrate the harvest and frolic beneath the apple trees. Sometime between the Halloween...

Viewpoint: Hold the salt, please
There's been a lot of talk in the press lately about the salt we use to keep our roads and parking lots safe in the winter. While good old-fashioned salt is the deicer of choice for many municipal road crews and private parking lot maintenance companies, it threatens lakes, streams...

When the Washington Conservation District approached the county fair board in 2006 about building four demonstration raingardens at the Washington County Fairgrounds, some board members were a bit skeptical. In addition to the one week per year that people flock to the county fair,...

After a long, cold winter like the one we've just experienced, it's easy to get dreamy-eyed thinking about a time when we will be outside enjoying our yards. The first time we need to mow the lawn each year, it's almost enjoyable. At the same time, though, it is easy to get over-zealous...

Three of my friends and I couldn't turn down the opportunity to eat cheese and enjoy the gorgeous winter weather on a recent weekend. We four girls began our Tour d' Western Wisconsin with a hearty bowl of chili in River Falls, before continuing onward to the Cady Cheese Factory...

Viewpoint: Running out of water in the land of 10,000 lakes
Earlier this morning, I headed down the hall to our office bathroom and flipped on the faucet to receive only a trickle of water, barely enough to wash away the soap coating my outstretched hands. As I watched in dismay, the trickle faded away into nothing. Five minutes later, the...

Viewpoint: A different way of developing
Every time my husband and I see a new building sprouting up near our home, we get a little excited thinking about the possibilities. We hope for a new restaurant; a local venue for Indian food or sushi would be nice. Inevitably though, when the sign goes up our hopes are dashed. In...
