Iconic Greater Madison: Six intriguing ideas from readers

In a past blog – and my IB print column – I announced a contest to suggest an iconic “it” that would put Greater Madison on the map (in a good way, for a change). The goal was, as a collective populace, to commit to doing something that would further our quality of life, but at the same time, REALLY promote economic development and tourism.

Traveling in the company of heroes

Traveling in the company of heroes

I’m beyond excited to report this week that, come this November, I’ll be accompanying the Honor Flight, which honors America’s World War II veterans for all of their sacrifices by transporting our heroes to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans – World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. The flight, for these vets, is absolutely FREE and is covered by donations. Guardian fees of $500, for those accompanying the veterans to assist them, are not covered by donations.
