Student pedestrian accident an educational moment

By Correne Martin

It was just another normal school day. Local mom, Sara Ross, was working and her kids were off on their bikes to school. 

But, right at 8 a.m., she received a phone call from the school that started out with, “We don’t want you to worry. James is OK, but there was an incident. We want you to talk to him.”

He came on the line and sounded perky, like he was feeling fine.

“Mom, I was hit by a car,” the Bluff View middle schooler said. He also told his mom he didn’t have any cuts or marks from the accident.

Ag clean sweep and electronics recycling in Crawford County Oct. 26

Crawford County is holding an ag clean sweep and electronics recycling event Friday, Oct. 26, at the County Highway Shop, just south of Seneca, on Highway 27. Hours of collection are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Any Crawford County resident, who can provide proof of residency, may participate. 

This event is a great opportunity for residents to properly dispose of many chemicals and substances that may pose serious health and environmental hazards. There is always a wide array of chemicals brought in, some much more toxic than others. Now is a great time to go through the basement, garage or barn and dispose of those unused, unwanted chemicals.

Modern Holocaust Studies course illuminating for Prairie high schoolers


Natalie White was one of 30 U.S. Holocaust studies teachers accepted into a 10-day symposium at Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, in Israel, this summer. She stayed a few extra days to take in some of the sights as well.

Through both Holocaust studies conferences Prairie du Chien High School English teacher Natalie White attended this summer, she intensively explored lessons about prejudism, racism and stereotyping that she can share with her students.

By Correne Martin

Understanding the consequences of prejudism, racism and stereotyping with a sense of empathy is a facet of education offered to upperclassmen at Prairie du Chien High School through a rather new, semester-long Holocaust Studies course. 

The 2018-2019 spring semester will be the third session of this class, which examines the reality and implications of the Nazi campaign to destroy European Jews from 1933 to 1945.

David Earl Moody

David Earl Moody was born on Dec. 6, 1947, in New Hampton, Iowa, to Earl and Betty Jean (Slick) Moody. He passed away peacefully and privately at Veterans Memorial Hospital in Madison, on Sept. 4. He battled prostate cancer, lung cancer and brain cancer all as the result of his exposure to Agent Orange while serving his country in Viet Nam during 1968-69.

He was a complicated man. To anyone who would look into his past, one would have a clearer understanding of how he became so complicated.

Dave had an extreme sense of bravery in any situation. Perhaps his only fears were of snakes and bats. Snakes immediately succumbed to his wrath with a hoe. Bats (once in the house) were pursued by Dave wearing a baseball cap, donning leather gloves with a badminton racket in hand. Worked every time!
