To the Editor: Over two decades ago, Dodge County and several townships were tasked with the challenge of responsibly completing a plan to locate a new dairy in our community. This project as it was originally planned, had it been allowed to be completed, would have been a destination/tourist/...
For several years, the idea of going on a trip was put on the back burner. But finally, my wife and I decided to make a long-anticipated trip out east.
