American Pickers to Make Local Stop

Old barns...dusty attics...shoddy sheds. None of it is too much for Mike and Frank of the popular History Channel show American Pickers, and the pair is looking for places to stop in southwest Wisconsin. Officials with the Spring Green Area Chamber of Commerce were recently contacted by members of the American Pickers production team, who said that they are interested in filming episodes of the show in Wisconsin starting next month.

Local Student Artist Featured

One local student's art work will be on display at the US Capitol for the next year after placing first in the 2015 3rd Congressional District Art Contest. Congressman Ron Kind and his wife Tawni announced the winners over the weekend, and it was learned that LaFarge High School student Emily Sedgwick earned the top honors with her piece entitled “Road Trip to Madison.” In addition, Sedgwick will be invited to Washington, D.C. for a reception honoring the nation's other top student artists.

Red Flag Warning

It's another dry day (Wednesday) in Wisconsin -- and the risk of wildfires keeps getting larger. The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for most of the Badger State from noon-until-eight p-m today. That triggers a ban on open burning in those areas, and folks are encouraged not to smoke outside. The warnings cover most of the western two-thirds of Wisconsin. Forecasters say humidities will be as low as 10-percent today, with winds gusting to 30-miles-an-hour with temperatures in the 60's-and-70's. Forecasters say our next real chance for rain is on Sunday. In Sauk County, authorities found a body while fighting a forest fire yesterday afternoon in the town of Dellona near Lyndon Station. The body was found behind a house. The state D-N-R and Sauk County sheriff's deputies are investigating. On Monday, over 200-acres were burned in what was called the "Railroad Fire" west of Necedah in Juneau County. The D-N-R said no structures were damaged, but a fire-fighter was treated for smoke inhalation.

 

Spring Large Item Pick Up

Richland Center residents are reminded that Town & Country Sanitation will be in the community tomorrow (Saturday) for the semi-annual large item curbside garbage collection. It's the clean-up effort for items not normally removed with the regular weekly household garbage pick-up.
