Curb. It’s that concrete edge that signifies where
the road ends and the rest of the world begins. It’s that little
barrier that encourages you to keep cruising straight ahead in your
car at 65 mph.
Or is it?
Slow your car down along that very same curb and you’ll notice
how the world on the other side beckons for you to take a closer look
at the people and places found there. Stop entirely and you’ll
begin to notice the compelling issues that influence these people and
shape these places – the social complexities, the historical
relics and the underlying attitudes that define an entire state.
That’s what Curb is all about. Both in-print and on the
Web, we provide a unique picture of the Wisconsin you find on the other
side of the curb, only if you’re willing to look again. We focus
on specific people and places and explore a broad array of social and
political issues that are unique to Wisconsin, while also taking an
investigative look at the economic, political and social ramifications
that national policy has on the well being of the state. In this way,
we honor the tradition of citizenship in Wisconsin and hope to inspire
you to take a stance on these issues, to get involved with their progress
and then to make a difference in your communities at a local or state
level. Our artistic style reflects the ingenuity and sophistication
that you will find in each written piece.
Curb strikes a balance between providing you with the in-depth
information you may need in order to help improve state and inviting
you to simply enjoy what the state has to offer. We dare you to turn
your engine off, get out of the car and participate not only in the
activities that relate to the issues, but also in those that provide
a respite from them. So we also highlight detailed information about
Wisconsin activities – including the sports, the arts and ways
to enjoy Wisconsin’s beautiful wilderness.
So, Wisconsin: Approach that Curb. Cross it. And with our guidance,
