Congressman Kind hears myriad of local concerns


The highlight of Ava Roth’s day April 4 was getting to experience a listening session with Congressman Ron Kind at the Crawford County Administration Building. After an appointment in town, she attended the session with her dad, A.V. Roth, of rural Wauzeka. She acted very quietly and respectfully throughout the event, listening to all of the questions and answers, particularly her dad’s inquiry about international trade. (Photo by Correne Martin)
