St. Croix Confidential - History Column

In 2010 and 2011 I had a ton of fun writing a column called St. Croix Confidential about the St. Croix Valley of Wisconsin and Minnesota for the local Patch site, where a former student of mine was editor. I also wrote a few business and feature articles for Patch too. Most of the column links should still be active (albeit recent Patch design changes and Patch's subtle shift from hyper-local to quasi-regional) -- apologies if they are not:
