Savory Sunday's offerings depend on the volume of food available. Some weeks may be plentiful, with enough burgers, fresh fruits and vegetables, salad and pasta to go around and ham sandwiches to go, while others are more sparse: the entrees run out too early, there are no buns for the hotdogs or the last in line get little more than a slice of coffee cake and some lemonade. more

Chuck and Jenny Anderson started raising freshwater fish at their Artesian Trout Farm back in 1981, and are longtime vendors at the Dane County Farmers' Market.

Nostalgia reverberated this week, as forons celebrated the life of Walter Cronkite, bygone summers and social liberalism of yore. If it weren't for a even-keeled few keeping the rest on track... oh, wait. more

Business was on our minds this week, as Forons gabbed about online shopping, new local eateries and a possible Target at Hilldale Mall. With all of these plans -- and the content of our wallets -- up in the air, thank God some of us have Jesus on speed dial. more

Downtown bars, political repositioning and more deaths: Forons ran wild this week. Many railed against Sarah Palin and Governor Doyle, while others channeled their creative diatribes into college-kid bashing and upholding State Street as the epicenter of the city. Perhaps we should declare The Pub the new Capitol? more

Arts and entertainment were the focus of the forum this week. Forons waxed poetic about the ongoing string of celebrity deaths, while others lamented the postponed Concerts on the Square and the state of Rhythm and Booms. A sprinkling of local politics provided a welcome reprieve from our star-studded grief. more

The Fountain Prairie Farm stand on North Carroll Street is a must-stop for beef fanatics at the Dane County Farmers' Market. Although John and Dorothy Priske have worked the market for 23 years, they've only sold their signature Scottish Highland dry-aged beef there for the last seven. more
