M.D. Kittle: Evers, Dems turn their back on small business again

Assembly Democrats could have taken a step toward fixing perhaps the biggest challenge facing Wisconsin’s economy. Instead, they stood by “Gov. Veto” and the left’s pursuit of expanded government dependency.

Dave Zweifel: Efforts of open records crusader Bob Wills live on

Advocates for openness in government lost a champion last week with the passing of legendary Milwaukee journalist Bob Wills.

John Nichols: What Mandela Barnes knows about Wisconsin

The work Barnes and Evers did to build up Democratic support in non-urban areas was essential to their narrow win in 2018.

Doug Moe: Saying ‘so long’ to the Avenue Bar

Whatever the how and why, the end of the Avenue Bar is a big deal. I once wrote that it came as close to being a public utility as any Madison restaurant ever has.

Dan Shafer: ‘It means more’: Giannis and the Bucks deliver defining moment for resilient Milwaukee

The Bucks’ championship has come to be a defining moment for Milwaukee. Teams win championships every year, but rarely does one happen quite like this.

What a time to live in Milwaukee and what a time to be alive!

Bill Kaplan: Scott Walker is right, get vaccinated now

It is long past time to stop the partisan and unscientific wrangling over vaccinations and former Wisconsin Govs. Jim Doyle (a Democrat) and Scott Walker (a Republican) have stepped up. ‘The Insiders’ look to the legislative redistricting battle ahead

John Torinus: Whither go the 13 UW Colleges across the state?

A recent commentary in the Daily News reported that I implied in a recent column “that, perhaps the two-year colleges were no longer a necessary part of the University System.” I must have been unclear in what I wrote because just the opposite is true about how I look at the future of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee at Washington County.

Ruth Conniff: Who’s got Evers fever?

The governor is campaigning on a tax cut neither he nor most Wisconsinites wanted — that’s nothing to get hot and bothered about

Dan O’Donnell: Wisconsin’s jobless summer

Endorsements by three progressive groups could help him win the party activists.

Honest education can’t leave out race and racism.
