Elections have consequences To the editor: Newly elected Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) is proposing to cut wages and benefits for state workers and also to limit the power of their unions to bargain on behalf of it members (state employees). Wisconsin is a test case for the GOP’s ideological agendas. If successful, it will set a precedent that can only be overturned by the courts or the ballot box. As states grapple with budget deficits, you will see more states doing what Wisconsin is proposing.

Grilling is often a misunderstood art form. People often think of Dad in the backyard grilling up hot dogs and hamburgers till they are charcoal black and tasteless. This recipe takes the grill and elevates it to the level of high accord and really works well for carnivores and vegetarians alike. The secret to great grilling is to fire up the grill, get it nice and hot and then turn it the temperature you desire. Leaving it smoking hot will cook the outside and leave the inside cold, or char the outside and ruin the flavor through out the vegetable.
