Geiger Counter

Virtual school is doing an amazing job preparing my daughter for adult life in the modern workforce. She wakes up, spends most of the day staring at a screen, then shuts it off with a sigh. Her eyes are bleary, her mind is blank, her expression is dull. Her psyche is uncharacteristically raw and tender.

Letters to the editor

I was not born or even raised in Black Earth. And didn’t arrive in Wisconsin until 1990. Despite that, it didn’t take long for me to discover the Black Earth Library and the unlimited support I was about to receive! You could call it the information hub in “living color.”
