Silver lining

As daily life adjusts to a new normal, The Chetek Alert wants to know what “silver linings” are in your life.

Tell us about the good things in your life that are making you happy, big or small, during this time. A visit from a friend, a family game night, or anything that you take joy in.

We’ll publish your notes in our weekly Silver Linings column, much like the gossip columns of years past.

Submit your silver linings to, subject “silver linings” with your name and location. Please limit to one or two sentences in length.

Examples might go something like these:

“The Simpson family played Settlers of Catan for game night. Young Bart won the first game and Lisa won the second.”

Or, “Jay Gatsby is happy about buying a house on the lake. He hopes to host a party when the gathering bans are over.”

“Holden Caulfield went for a hike on the Ice Age Trail near New Auburn and saw flocks of migrating ducks and geese.”

Deadline is Tuesday at 10 a.m.
