The origin of Haakon IV of Norway is the stuff of legend. The story is every bit extraordinary as it is unbelievable - and the Nordic 13th century epic "The Last King" (screening at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival) lives up to the legend.

Tom and Janet Buska (pronounced bush-ka) took that saying to heart when building their home at W6902 Prospect Road, east of Beaver Dam.It started out with an offhand remark from Janet when the couple found a parcel of land that suited their purpose as a building site.“We wanted to build here in Beaver Dam, and ...
