Worzalla will celebrate its 125th anniversary in business this year after surviving – and thriving – in a constantly-changing market. 

Portage County Historical Society’s Heritage Park opens “Over There” Memorial Day weekend, featuring six buildings with displays and information on things like the county’s role in the war, including people such as Admiral Albert W. Grant (family members of whom sit in the Depot building that includes information on when the soldiers left), and displays featuring a makeshift trench from the front lines and how folks back home made sacrifices, not just with sons and husbands who didn’t return but with food rationing.

  • Domestic violence impacts all in community

    At CAP Services’ Family Crisis Center, we join in mourning with our sister agency, Women’s Community and our neighbors in the greater Wausau area as they seek to heal from the lethal consequences of domestic violence.


  • It is of spring poets comingle. All on the relent of winter, as northerners understand.  When trills the redwing and heralds the sandhill, all is poetry. All the flowers, the pollen, the bird song. Poets are not known to verse about the weight limits on town roads, the gore of these same where sodden spring does her best to prove the earth is loquacious.

  • You deserve a break today is not just an old slogan from a fast food chain. You really do deserve a break, and you should make sure you regularly schedule time for yourself. I never used to, and one summer it put me in a hospital. For real.


  • For a moment, set aside the joy of seeing your crocuses and daffodils bloom. Overlook all the pruning and yard chores a new season brings. Instead, as you survey your landscape, look for early signs of plant disease and winter injury. 


  • “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” That line has been memorialized as a book title, as lyrics in a song and as part of the old TV show, “Hee Haw.” You might remember Buck Owens and Roy Clark lamenting, “Gloom, despair, and agony on me, Deep, dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all, Gloom, despair, and agony on me.”
