clerk's office to draft an ordinance that would repeal previous county legislation, Ordinance 59.42, providing for five-year terms. Administrative Committee member Gene Thom indicated that all five-year contracts would come up for review depending on their inception dates. For now, at least, Green Lake County officials will not audit the counsel office. Moreover, the Administrative Committee ruled to recommend to the board retention of the current budget. The total proposed budget for 2011 amounted to $191,306 in 2011, with a total from the County Tax Levy amounting to $189,906 and $1,400 in total offsetting revenues, related to the Corporation Counsel office.

THE END OF CALENDAR YEAR 2011 might end fiveyear contracts for Green Lake County. County Board Supervisors will decide whether to retain John Seising (pictured) as a non-contracted employee.

Corporation Counsel costs for 2011, included $14,000 in office expenses, along with $50,802.65 in contractual services, these in part covering the salary of Assistant Corporation Counsel Jeff Haase. The Corporation Counsel budget remains slated for a year-end review before December 31. In addition, before then, officials will have to decide whether to retain Seising as a non-contrac-

2012. In other business, the Administrative Committee rejected a proposal made at the County Board meeting May 17, 2011, by Chair Dan Priske, to impose a time line on the Ad Hoc Committee. Thom emphasized the need to continue Ad Hoc's cost cutting and, possibly, departmental consolidation and staff reduction research, along with its consultation services with department management. "There's no end to the Ad Hoc Committee at this time," Thom said. Although Ad Hoc Chair Thomas Traxler, Jr. indicated that he would like to see Ad Hoc shut down at the end of 2011, Thom speculated on the committee continuing through 2012 on an open-ended schedule that would ultimately depend on local government's budgetary needs under enactments of Wisconsin Act 32 and budget repair provisions.

VOTING BY ABSENTEE BALLOT Any qualified elector who is unable or unwilling to appear at the polling place on election day may request to vote an absentee ballot. A qualified elector is an any U.S. citizen, who will be 18 years of age or older on election day, who has resided in the ward or municipality where he or she wishes to vote for at least 28 consecutive days before the election. The elector must also be registered in order to receive an absentee ballot.

halogen - a gas that permits the lamps to bum hotter and emit more lumens per watt. While the higher efficiency results in lower operating costs, the halogen replacement generally costs two to three times as much as a 100-watt incandescent. Other state-of-the-art lighting technology, such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and liquid light-emitting diodes (LEDs), will hit the market during the next year. Their development could bring a new approach to residential lighting. "In the future liquid LEDs will work like printing ink," Heller said. "In theory, you could put it on wallpaper and then stick , the wallpaper up around your house and that will be your light source." In closing, Heller said he expects the transition away from incandescent light bulbs to be a difficult, but worthwhile process. "The biggest negative to the phase-out is change itself," he said. "People are accustomed to going in to a store and buying a light bulb and then going home and screwing it in. We have one color. Now, we have multiple colors, and over the last 10 years, research has found out these different colors affect you different1y."

CONCRETE RAISING Business Name: Dry Otter Concrete Raising & Basement Waterproofing Phone: (608) 334-6044 Website: Business Hours: Mon.-Fri. 8am-5pm / Free Estimates by Appointment How did you get interested and/or started in this business? Co-owner Jonathan Welter (left) & Nick Labansky (right) started Dry Otter Concrete Raising to complement their existing basement waterproofing business. A majority of homes need both services. Describe your products/services: Dry Otter raises sunken concrete with polyurethane for sidewalks, driveways, steps and garage/basement floors & fills voids. What differentiates you from your competitors? Dry Otter uses polyurethane, not mud, to raise concrete. Polyurethane won't wash away, & requires smaller holes versus mud (5/8", not 1.5") & half the amount of holes. Very clean process! Raising is usually half the cost versus replacement, can be walked on immediately and can be done within minutes, not days! What kind of training or background do you have? We have extensive experience with concrete replacement from our basement waterproofing business. We also received extensive training from the company we bought our equipment from.

test in the morning does not guarantee that milk collected from the same cow in the afternoon is safe. Last year, a similar bill with more safeguards was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle. At the time, the governor cited safety concerns about unpasteurized milk, which some consumers drink for its taste and perceived health benefits. Like many of the roughly 15 farmers and consumers who came with Wickert to lobby, Grothman and Pridemore drink raw milk regularly. "I don't consider it risky behavior," Grothman says. Public health officials disagree. In 2010, raw milk products caused 28 disease outbreaks in the United States that sickened 159 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Wisconsin, raw milk has caused seven disease outbreaks since 1998, including the incident in Raymond, state health officials say. The outbreaks sickened at least 277 people; 28 were hospitalized. A spokesman for Gov. Scott Walker says he would support legislation allowing the limited sale of raw milk directly from farmers, provided suffi-

duced in May leaves out many regulations recommended in a 261-page report released Wednesday by the Raw Milk Policy Working Group composed of 22 Wisconsin dairy experts with a variety of opinions on raw milk. The group's report calls for detailed regulations on storage, testing and sales of raw milk if they are legalized. Grothman said he did not take the group's tentative recommendations, released last year, into account when he wrote his bill, but he's open to amending it. Under the 2011 bill, farmers would be required to post signs indicating they sell unpasteurized milk products, but they would not have to place warning labels on raw milk products, as the previous bill required. Farmers who milk fewer than 20 cows would not need to have a license or grade A dairy permit to sell raw milk. The current bill also would allow farmers to advertise their raw milk products, something the 2010 bill prohibited. Scott Rankin, chair of the Department of Food Science at UW-Madison and member of the working group, says the latest bill is not based on science. "It just omits so much of all the concerns around how you handle any food, let alone raw milk," Rankin says. Pridemore insists the raw milk he drinks is safe because it's fresh. "The farm that I buy

On Sate Now

What do you find most rewarding about this type of work? Upon completion of a job hearing, customers say kind words about us & how they'll tell their friends & families about Dry Otter. What type of customers use or should use your products/services? Homes & businesses should consider raising sunken concrete instead of replacing, especially if the concrete is in good shape. It's cleaner, quicker & much more cost-effective. Polyurethane is also great for void filling for commercial & industrial applications.

$50 IN

What are your future plans for your business? We plan to keep building our basement waterproofing & concrete raising business, and to continue our reputation as a company who does great work & who will always do things in an ethical and honest way.

that freshness does not ensure safety. Raw milk can contain multiple illness-causing bacteria, including E.coli and campylobacter. One 1992 study found contamination in 25 percent of samples taken from raw milk stored in bulk tanks. Grothman said it will be up to the consumer to find trustworthy suppliers. Vince Hundt, an organic farmer and member of the working group, says he supports the current bill without most of the group's suggestions. "A consumer can walk to the store and buy a quart of gin or a carton of cigarettes," Hundt says, "but you can't buy agallon of milk from a farmer."

Chill out on hot days with frozen treats ■ Ice cream is always a favorite but other

While s'mores are traditionally considered a campfire treat, you can make frozen s'mores to enjoy the flavor without the heat. Just break a graham cracker in half and put both halves on a small, microwave-safe plate. On one half, put a heaping teaspoon of chocolate chips or two small squares of a chocolate bar. Top the other half with a large marshmallow that's been cut in half or about 6 miniature marshmallows. Microwave on high for about 30 seconds, then press the halves together to make a s'more. Let them cool, then wrap them in foil and keep them in the freezer until it's time to enjoy them. Make a cooling slush by pouring your favorite fruit juice into an ice cube tray and freezing it. Add all the cubes to a blender or food processor and pulse until they turn into a fruity slush. Following are some ideas for frozen treats from and .

homemade treats for August include refreshing fruit ices, creamy gelatos Frozen treats are perfect this time of year, when the dog days of August are barking. But look beyond simple ice cream for your summertime fare. Try a creamy gelato or a crisp granita to satisfy those cravings. Use fresh fruits when making your treat and you'll have something both luscious and cooling. Homemade popsicles are also delicious. Try pouring juice or pudding into paper cups and freezing them. Place a craft stick in the center of the pudding before freezing, and in the juice after it's set enough to stay in place. Just peel the cup off before eating them. For a frozen fruit treat, wrap a peeled banana in plastic wrap or a plastic bag and place it in the freezer for 3 hours or more, until frozen.

TRIPLE-BERRY POPSICLES ■ 2/3 cup sugar ■ 1 cup blueberries ■ 1 cup raspberries


■ 1 cup strawberries, hulled and ■

■ 1/3 cup minced fresh basil leaves

■ 4 to 5 lemons, rinsed ■ 2/3 cup sugar

sliced 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

DIRECTIONS Grate 1 tablespoon peel, yellow part only, from about three lemons. Ream juice from enough lemons to make 3/4 cup. In an 8 or 9-inch square baking pan, mix peel, juice and 1-1/2 cups water. In a food processor or blender, whirl sugar until very fine. Add basil and process until very finely minced. Stir sugar mixture into lemon mixture until sugar is dissolved. Cover and freeze mixture about 6 hours, until firm. Scrape the tines of a fork quickly across frozen mixture to break into fluffy granules. Scoop granita into chilled bowls or wine or sherbet glasses and serve immediately.

DIRECTIONS Put sugar and 1/3 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to boil over high heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Set aside. Combine blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and lemon juice in a blender. Purée about 30 seconds, until smooth. Add 1/3 cup simple syrup and blend just until combined. Save remaining syrup for another use, such as sweetening iced tea. Transfer purée to 10 4-ounce popsicle molds or paper cups and freeze 4 hours. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze an additional 4 to 6 hours, until frozen solid. Peel paper cups, if using, from popsicles before serving.

PEANUT BUTTER PUDDINGWICHES ■ ■ 1-1/2 cups peanut butter ■ ■ 3 cups cold milk, divided ■ 1 3.9-ounce package instant ■ chocolate pudding mix

FROZEN ICED TEA ■ 3 family-sized tea bags ■ 6 cups boiling water ■ 1 cup sugar ■ 1/2 cup water ■ 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 cups whipped topping 1 3.4-ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix 32 whole graham crackers



In a mixing bowl, combine 3/4 cup peanut butter and 1-1/2 cups milk until smooth. Slowly beat in chocolate pudding mix until blended. Fold in 1 cup whipped topping. Pour into a 9-by-13-by-2-inch pan lined with foil and freeze until firm. Repeat with vanilla pudding and remaining peanut butter, milk and whipped topping. Pour into another 9-by-13-by-2-inch pan lined with foil and freeze until firm. Break or cut graham crackers into squares. Cut frozen pudding mixture into 32 pieces, each about 2-1/2-by-2-1/4 inches. Place each frozen pudding square between two crackers. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze overnight.

CONCRETE RAISING Business Name: Dry Otter Concrete Raising & Basement Waterproofing Phone: (608) 334-6044 Website: Business Hours: Mon.-Fri. 8am-5pm / Free Estimates by Appointment How did you get interested and/or started in this business? Co-owner Jonathan Welter (left) & Nick Labansky (right) started Dry Otter Concrete Raising to complement their existing basement waterproofing business. A majority of homes need both services. Describe your products/services: Dry Otter raises sunken concrete with polyurethane for sidewalks, driveways, steps and garage/basement floors & fills voids. What differentiates you from your competitors? Dry Otter uses polyurethane, not mud, to raise concrete. Polyurethane won't wash away, & requires smaller holes versus mud (5/8", not 1.5") & half the amount of holes. Very clean process! Raising is usually half the cost versus replacement, can be walked on immediately and can be done within minutes, not days! What kind of training or background do you have? We have extensive experience with concrete replacement from our basement waterproofing business. We also received extensive training from the company we bought our equipment from.

test in the morning does not guarantee that milk collected from the same cow in the afternoon is safe. Last year, a similar bill with more safeguards was vetoed by Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle. At the time, the governor cited safety concerns about unpasteurized milk, which some consumers drink for its taste and perceived health benefits. Like many of the roughly 15 farmers and consumers who came with Wickert to lobby, Grothman and Pridemore drink raw milk regularly. "I don't consider it risky behavior," Grothman says. Public health officials disagree. In 2010, raw milk products caused 28 disease outbreaks in the United States that sickened 159 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Wisconsin, raw milk has caused seven disease outbreaks since 1998, including the incident in Raymond, state health officials say. The outbreaks sickened at least 277 people; 28 were hospitalized. A spokesman for Gov. Scott Walker says he would support legislation allowing the limited sale of raw milk directly from farmers, provided suffi-

duced in May leaves out many regulations recommended in a 261-page report released Wednesday by the Raw Milk Policy Working Group composed of 22 Wisconsin dairy experts with a variety of opinions on raw milk. The group's report calls for detailed regulations on storage, testing and sales of raw milk if they are legalized. Grothman said he did not take the group's tentative recommendations, released last year, into account when he wrote his bill, but he's open to amending it. Under the 2011 bill, farmers would be required to post signs indicating they sell unpasteurized milk products, but they would not have to place warning labels on raw milk products, as the previous bill required. Farmers who milk fewer than 20 cows would not need to have a license or grade A dairy permit to sell raw milk. The current bill also would allow farmers to advertise their raw milk products, something the 2010 bill prohibited. Scott Rankin, chair of the Department of Food Science at UW-Madison and member of the working group, says the latest bill is not based on science. "It just omits so much of all the concerns around how you handle any food, let alone raw milk," Rankin says. Pridemore insists the raw milk he drinks is safe because it's fresh. "The farm that I buy

What do you find most rewarding about this type of work? Upon completion of a job hearing, customers say kind words about us & how they'll tell their friends & families about Dry Otter. What type of customers use or should use your products/services? Homes & businesses should consider raising sunken concrete instead of replacing, especially if the concrete is in good shape. It's cleaner, quicker & much more cost-effective. Polyurethane is also great for void filling for commercial & industrial applications.

What are your future plans for your business? We plan to keep building our basement waterproofing & concrete raising business, and to continue our reputation as a company who does great work & who will always do things in an ethical and honest way.

What have been some of the challenges you've faced, and how did you work them out? The challenge in the concrete raising business is educating people that raising concrete is much more economical than replacing. We do our best to spend a lot of time with each customer on answering all their questions.

that freshness does not ensure safety. Raw milk can contain multiple illness-causing bacteria, including E.coli and campylobacter. One 1992 study found contamination in 25 percent of samples taken from raw milk stored in bulk tanks. Grothman said it will be up to the consumer to find trustworthy suppliers. Vince Hundt, an organic farmer and member of the working group, says he supports the current bill without most of the group's suggestions. "A consumer can walk to the store and buy a quart of gin or a carton of cigarettes," Hundt says, "but you can't buy agallon of milk from a farmer."

The Chilton Chamber of Commerce would like to extend our personal Thank You To all of our Parade Sponsors whose donations made this year's Parade another huge success! Many people may not realize this, but every year our Fathers Day Parade costs thousands of dollars to stage. The popular units that you have come to love and enjoy all come with a price tag.

So we ask you to carefully review the sponsor's list. We encourage you to patronize their businesses or, at the very least, we ask that you say Thank You the next time you see them.

A Special Thank You goes out to the following groups for their help in making our Parade Weekend a Huge Success! 'Jerry Pagel for leading our Parade as Grand Marshall.

*The VFW, American Legion, and all of our American Heroes for giving our parade special meaning. *The Chilton High School Marching Band; the City of Chilton Marching Band; for giving our parade a local touch of talent!

CHEF PROFILE-SamuelMilian Executive Chef, Buck & Honey's Restaurant Sun Prairie


A recipe just for the halibut Buck & Honey's Executive Chef Sammuel "Sammy" Milian was born and raised in Ixtapa, Mexico. When Milian reached the ripe old age of 17, he moved to San Francisco where he ended up with a roommate who was a talented chef. Soon after, he caught the joy of cooking, and ended up in Chicago as Executive Chef for one of The Lone Star Steakhouse's highest volume locations in America -- working 70 hours per week, while pursuing his culinary education. He's worked with some of this area's finest establishments, most recently playing a lead role opening Sprecher Brewery's first restaurant in Middleton. Buck & Honey's is Chef Millan's first opportunity to build his own menu including some of his famous seafood creations. Check out this mouthwatering offering from Sammy's recipe book:

Free beer? Local author uses sudsy gimmick to sell local beer book



By Julie Henning


Hometown News Group adison author and travel writer Kevin Revolinski turned a hobby into a book, and is helping Wisconsin beer drinkers save money as a result. Originally released in 2006 as The Wisconsin Beer Guide: A Travel Companion, Revolinski has switched publishers (Thunder Bay Press) and shortened the title to simply Wisconsin's Best Beer Guide. Updated in 2010, Revolinski added new microbreweries and removed ones that have fallen off the beer map. "All the listings are up-to-date and I added a bit more information on beer-related attractions, museums, a few more points of interest within stumbling distance of the breweries," he said. In total, the book lists 74 breweries throughout the state of Wisconsin, from the 16-barrel-per-year brewpub at UW-Platteville to mega-brewer Miller Brewing in Milwaukee. Collecting beer cans as a kid, Revolinski wasn't terribly interested in beer until he began researching his book. "Even in college, beer was a 'well, it does the job' sort of thing rather than something I enjoyed drinking," Revolinski said. "It really wasn't until I did this book, went on the tours, and did the samples, that I really opened up to the world of beer beyond the cheap $4 cases of Kingsbury in returnable bottles." With a comprehensive history beer and brewing history, Revolinski uses headings like What's Hoppenin', Hop Stuff?, Ales Vs. Lagers, and Retro Beer: Schlitz Returns before he divides the state into six zones (Dane County easily fits into Zone 1). "Each section [of the book] has a map of that portion of the state with the brew towns marked. Within each zone the communities are listed in alphabetical order with the brewpubs and breweries below the town heading. Watch for a few extra non-brewing but brewing related attractions and other interesting bits you can read during your journey," Revolinski explained. Using a marketing plan of free beer to bring customers to the breweries, several of the listings in the guide book encourage patrons to bring their copy of the Wisconsin's Best Beer Guide in exchange for complimentary beverages. "My marketing plan is free beer," Revolinski said. "You can get the book signed at participating breweries and then you get a little freebie. In most cases that's a free beer. A book that pays for itself

well, using its vodka, rums, or other liquors as ingredients. Local wineries are also expanding and becoming more prominent in the state. And with a recent law change, wineries can now distill brandy. "I've heard Wollersheim has some [brandy], but it's not ready yet," Petrie said. People are more inclined to purchase locally made products primarily because of the quality and to boost the local economy.

"You're doing double duty," Petrie said. "You're buying local and helping local farmers, and then the fact is, they're good beers. You're at a win-win. Same with distilleries and wines. They are making good products." And those products can only be found in Wisconsin. Locally grown, locally made is exclusively locally sold. "Wisconsin sort of has a niche, and the market is here," Petrie said. " People like to have their beer after mowing grass or on a Saturday night. You get [Wisconsin beers] here. You don't get it anywhere else." Wisconsinites aren't the only ones after these locally crafted brews,

five times over in suds, how do you like that? It's just proof that we live in a golden age." Each brewery entry provides information and photos about the brewery, including tour times, the most popular brew, the best time to go, directions to the brewery, and where you can purchase the beer on your own. Details for breweries participating in the free beer promotion are listed under "special offer." Pat Keller, brewmaster at the Great Dane Pub and Brewery in Fitchburg, reports around a dozen copies of Wisconsin's Best Beer Guide in the taproom. "People are motivated any time there's free beer," Keller said, "We have samples of our beer, but showing us the book gets them a free io ounce pint glass." The Grumpy Troll Brew Pub in Mount Horeb also offers a free See Free Beer? on Page 6

wines and spirits. Out-of-staters from Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa tend to stock up when they visit our great state. "We always make fun when people come in here and the first thing they as for is warm 12-packs of Spotted Cow," Petrie said. "Some of them will take two to four 12-packs [of warm beer]." Out-of-staters are also often amazed at the selection of good beers, wines and spirits available at local restaurants. "They can't believe the beer selections," Petrie said. "You go down to the Old Fashioned [in Madison], they've got 3o taps [of local Wisconsin beers]. You go around

the corner to Coopers and they've got 20 taps. In Sun Prairie, Eddie's has a great beer selection, and Cannery Grill's gets better all the time." Wisconsinites know quality when they taste it, and the fact that the best-made beers, wines and liquors come from our own backyard makes it even better. So whether you're going to pull up a stool or camp out in a lawn chair at a bonfire this summer – fill your glass with some Wisconsingrown, Wisconsin-made spirits. Oh yes, and no matter how much you want to support local businesses, remember one thing: Drink responsibly,

All the buzz McFarland bees busy making honey for Dane County Farmers Market By Kathleen Osten

Hometown News Group erhaps you've never wondered about just exactly how or where that sweet stuff we call honey is made. You may know it has something to do with bees and you may know what kind of honey you like. A recent visit to a honey farm near McFarland was a delightfully interesting peek into the ancient science and art of beekeeping or apiculture. "We got a late start this year," said Dale Marsden, who has been keeping bees since 1963. His honey farm is located south of McFarland in the town of Dunn near Lower Mud Lake. Perhaps you've seen Marsden at the Dane County Farmers Market on the Capitol Square. He's the honey vendor who wears the beehive hat. He's been selling his wares at the market on the square since 1978. He sells bottled honey, comb honey, beeswax candles and honey sticks. But it all begins with the bees. "I order my bees in January and they usually come in April, six weeks later," Marsden said. "But there was cold weather in California this spring. I order my bees from California and they couldn't get the queen bees mated earlier because it was so cold." Marsden said that he orders the three-pound package. Each package includes a queen bee with three pounds of bees, which is about 1,50o bees. There is one queen per hive and the bees that are shipped with the queen must stay with that queen. They come in boxes on a semitruck. Marsden said there are thousands of boxes on one semitruck trailer. Each package holds a queen bee in a little cage, along with the worker bees. A can of sugar water is also included. The can has small holes punched in it, so the bees will be fed during the trip. "If there is no queen in the package, I send it back," he explained. "You can't start a hive without a queen. The worker bees gather around the queen and feed her. The queens have to be fed royal jelly. The worker bees eat nectar, honey and pollen and then feed the queen royal jelly, which is secreted from glands in the worker bees' heads. They spit out the

"We've hosted a handful of beer enthusiasts enjoying their visit to Mount Horeb and logging the free sample in their guidebooks," said brewmaster Mark Knoebl. Also included in the guide are chapters on Wisconsin's beer heritage, the process of brewing beer, state beer festivals, and a listing of homebrewer associations and brewing supply shops. "I even included breweries reachable by bike trail or brew cruise and some different techniques on how to drink beer—as if you didn't know already," Revolinski added. On the shelves of several area bookstores and online at , Wisconsin's Best Beer Guide retails for $12.99. Spot Revolinski at a Madison brew pub with a copy of his book and odds are good he'll give you an autograph -- and maybe even order a round or two.

The Supper Club Experience Venerable eateries offering good food in relaxed settings By Roberta Baumann


Hometown News Group ome restaurants offer a place to grab a bite to eat. But others offer a comfortable atmosphere to spend an evening dining with family and friends. These particular restaurants offer cocktails before dinner, then slow food in a warm setting. The fare is American – steaks and seafood – and usually a salad bar or a relish tray is part of the dining experience. Sometimes, you can enjoy live music before and after dinner. You bring your children to such restaurants – and your parents and your grandparents. They are Wisconsin's supper clubs. According to wikipedia, supper clubs are generally found in the Upper Midwestern states of Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan. "They were traditionally thought of as a 'destination' where patrons would go to spend the whole evening, from cocktail hour to enjoying night club style entertainment after dinner," the website notes. "They feature a casual and relaxed atmosphere." Supper Clubs may be enjoying renewed popularity – Capital Brewery, the Middleton craft brewery, even has a namesake Supper Club beer. The distinctly Midwest Americal lager has become a big seller. Fortunately, the Dane County area has plenty of such establishments, all run by independent restaurateurs whom customers come to know by name. One of those supper clubs is in Waunakee. Rex Endres has owned See Supper Clubs on Page 8

Monday, as well. Both Rex's and the Dorf Haus feature live entertainment. A three-piece band plays for the Dorf Haus smorgasbord. Other events there include dinner theater shows, wine and beer tasting. Rex's Innkeeper features live bands on Friday evenings and sometimes Saturdays when it isn't booked for weddings and banquets.

Rex's Innkeeper for 23 years, and for over two decades has served up excellent steaks and seafood dishes at a reasonable price. Located on Century Avenue just north of Main Street, Rex's aims to provide customers "good food and cocktails at a reasonable price in a warm, old English atmosphere," Endres said. The Waunakee mainstay was a supper club when Endres bought it in 1988. Over the years, he has had added a banquet room and a larger dining area to accommodate large parties. A supper club mainstay in the Lodi area has been the Dorf Haus in the Town of Roxbury. Since 1959, the Vern and Betty Maier family has owned the German restaurant, also adding on to the establishment over the years. One of the owners, Rebecca Maier-Frey, described another distinctive supper club feature. "Friday fish fry is a very traditional supper club experience," she said. Today, Rebecca Maier-Frey with her brother, Monte Maier, carry on their parents' tradition in the Dorf Haus. In addition to the traditional

Unlike many other restaurants, supper clubs often have a family atmosphere, with longstanding employees. "Supper clubs are very much the family-run establishments. You're going to find owners there and consistent staff," Maier-Frey said. "A lot of times, they're going to know your name when you come in.

honey, a stove for warming up the wax and honey and other supplies. The beeswax candles are also made in the honey house. In addition to the bottled honey, Marsden sells comb honey, in small square packages. Osten is managing editor of The McFarland Thistle,

royal jelly out of their mouths for the queen. "The bees will reject a virgin queen," said Marsden. "I get mated queens. They are mated with drones (male bees hatched from unfertilized eggs.) The drones are flying around up a couple hundred feet in the air. "Once a queen is in the hive, she will stay there. She will lay up to 2,000 eggs per day," he said. "The queens will lay eggs from now until October and November. She will lay again in February." Asked how he knows how many bees to order, Marsden said he goes out and checks to see how many bee hives are over-wintering. "I look in January and order to replace them, " he said. "I had 6o hives last year and was down to ten. I ordered 40 packages. I hope to have 4,000 pounds of honey this year." Marsden said that he's been getting his bees from California now for a few years. "I like the California bees," he said. "They're more gentle. I used to get them

Putting the 'breakfast' in B&B Cambridge House B&B offers a variety of fantastic food By Joyce Ryan

Special to Hometown News Group n a recent Saturday night my beau and I had the pleasure of staying in Cambridge at the wellknown Cambridge House Bed & Breakfast. Madison Magazine, once again, voted this B & B the Best Of Madison. We could certainly tell why. From the time we spoke with owner Jeff Leoni on the phone to make the reservation it felt like speaking with an old friend. Once at the door we were greeted with a warm "Hello Jim & Joyce! Welcome to Cambridge House." Jeff then began our tour by showing us the common areas of the house. First is a very nice seating/lounge area complete with vibrating chair and reading material. The dining room is homey and tastefully decorated with several round tables for cozy seating. There is also a video/DVD library. All five suites are equipped with either a VCR or DVD player. All so lovely! We were then asked what we would like with our appetizer tray that is served about 5 PM. There is red or white wine, soda, coffee, and juices offered -- whatever you would desire. Jeff handed us our keys and he escorted us to the Log Cabin Suite that we had reserved. This particular suite has its own outside entrance. We entered and started up the stairs to what is an amazing, perfectly lovely, and inviting suite. It is a true up north adventure with all the amenities of a 5-Star hotel. A king size bed, Jacuzzi bath complete with sea salts to add, fluffy robes, fireplace, TV/DVD, and a full size bath with a shower make it the perfect place to relax. The decor is absolutely mesmerizing with all of the wildlife items from floor to ceiling. There are bears everywhere! Stuffed bears, ceramic bears, bear soap dishes, a bear remote control holder, and bear topped wooden posts on all four corners of the log bed. It could not be lovelier. The appetizer arrived on schedule delivered by Jeff and his wife Linda. There is such an array of tasty items on the tray there is no need to go to dinner afterward. The presentation itself makes your mouth water. After meeting Linda and complimenting her on her taste in decorating, Jeff inquired about when we would

like coffee and pastries in our room and when we would like to come down for breakfast. He also asked if we had any particular items we do not wish to have. We chose a time and Jeff and Linda promptly excused themselves. At bedtime a plate of warm cookies are left on the table outside the interior door. The rest of the evening became a dream of luxury and respite. In the morning coffee and pastries arrived at the predetermined time and were left in the hall with barely a sound.

Foodie Finds New directory offers listing of organic farms A new resource is available to assist organic producers and purchasers in Wisconsin. The 2011 Wisconsin Organic Farm & Business Directory was compiled by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) and is now online. "Until this directory, there wasn't a central location for organic farmers to search for organic buyers or for consumers to identify organic farms and businesses," said Harriet Behar, the Organic Specialist at MOSES and a member of the Wisconsin Organic Advisory Council. "This directory facilitates trade." The 100-page directory is available online at ic_Farming/Directory. You can also search by name, crop, product, or county. Each entry includes a name, contact information, description, and organic certification. "Landowners can search the directory to find an organic farmer to rent their land, or a consumer can find a local farmer to buy vegetables for canning," added Behar. "Farmers can contact farmers to share experiences with organic certification, or feed mills can find producers who will sell organic grains — there are so many uses for this tool." Inclusion in the directory was voluntary. The directory includes 522 of Wisconsin's 1,136 certified organic farms and 96 of the 218 certified organic businesses in Wisconsin.

Hosts Diana and Jim Murphy, have opened up their farm to event guests and will provide tours and talks about the farm's production methods.

Get 'Smart'

Get these Smart Phone applications

Tips for using Smart Phone applications when dining out -By Julie Henning

Hometown News Group


are growing up and going out. From movies to estaurants, dates to dancing, the smart phone is changing the way we plan a night out. Here are four unique smart phone applications designed to help plan your evening. From picking a venue to making a reservation, and then sharing your experience with the world, finding good food with good company is one thing that will never change.



Helping people make restaurant reservations on-the-go, the OpenTable application links patrons to a network of over 15,000 restaurants across the nation. Searching for restaurants within the OpenTable system, the application uses an electronic concierge database to provide people with a list of restaurants currently with "open tables." Buck & Honey's Restaurant in Sun Prairie has completely • replaced their paper-based seating chart with the OpenTable reservation system. "OpenTable has done a lot of good things for our restaurant. People can make an OpenTable reservation from within our website or the smart-phone application. It also really allows us to interact with our patrons in a way we never could before," said coowner Tom Anderson. "OpenTable is a database manage•ment system as much as anything. For example, now we can email our specials and stay connected with our loyal customer base." OpenTable sends an email confirmation with reservation details and even allows people to email dining invitations to their friends. Restaurant information, includ. ing the type of cuisine, menu, and dining reviews are listed within each restaurant profile page. Using the OpenTable Dining Rewards Points program, patrons can also accumulate restaurant gift certificates by continually dining within the OpenTable network. OpenTable is free for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry users. foursquare

A popular social networking tool, the foursquare application uses mobile phone devices as a means to interact with the community.


By "checking in" at various locations, restaurants included, individuals electronically announce their presence (and location) to other people on the foursquare network. Stadium Sports Bar & Eatery has set up a foursquare special for patrons using the application at their bar and restaurant near Camp Randall Stadium in Madison. Each time a patron checks in and shows the foursquare application to the bartender they receive $1 off a 16oz. tap of Goose Island 312 beer. "People use our foursquare special all the time," said chef manager Caleb Woyak. "We've had really positive feedback from our customers on our use of social media, including our foursquare special and posting parties, events, and additional specials on our Facebook page." Rewarding patrons for repeat business and loyalty, frequent check ins at one particular location will eventually earn that person the title of Mayor. Become the Mayor of Ian's Pizza on State Street, for example, and you will receive a free drink with your salad or slice of pizza. At any given moment, someone else can take the title of Mayor, so frequent check ins are the name of the foursquare game. Foursquare is free for iPhone, Android, and Blackberry users.

Madison on the Town

Compiled by Madison resident and food and dining enthusiast Kevin Revolinski, the Madison on the Town application is a resource for finding a place to eat, drink, or be merry in greater Madison. From Alchemy Café to Whiskey River Saloon, the application is designed to help you find the best spots in town for going out. With more than 15o entries in categories ranging from best happy hours, to live music, to fine dining, and coffee and tea houses, Revolinski has added photos and a brief review of his own for each venue.

"The Old Fashioned is on the application and we love it," remarked Jennifer DeBold, manager at The Old Fashioned in Madison. "Because the Madison on the Town app doesn't allow us to track when people are using it, we only know [when it's being used] if we see our information up on their phones," said DeBold. "I use it all the time for making my own evening plans." Hours of operation, phone numbers, web sites, and customer comments are also provided for each entry.

"The benefit of the Travel Wisconsin app is that wherever you may be traveling in the state, you can find travel opportunities such as restaurants, accommodations, festivals, attractions, museums, parks, you name it 'on the go'," Marshall added. "The app can use your GPS location to find travel opportunities wherever you might be," Marshall said. Dining options on the Travel Wisconsin application are selected by tapping the dining link at the bottom of the screen. Restaurants such as Dayton Street Café, Marigold Kitchen, and Monk's Bar & Grill can be displayed by type of cuisine and proximity.

The Edgerton Reporter, Edgerton, WI 53534, Wednesday, July 13, 2011

City named for railroad man By Mark Scarborough Reporter Staff The online Wisconsin Dictionary of History, searchable on the Wisconsin Historical Society website, tells us that the Wisconsin place name "Edgerton" is "probably (named) in honor of E.W. Edgerton, an early Wisconsin settler." The dictionary also tells readers that the city was named for a surveyor for the Milwaukee and Waukesha Railroad. Wrong on part one; right on part two. According to the March 1921 issue of the Wisconsin Magazine of History, Benjamin Hyde Edgerton (April 17, 1811-Dec. 9, 1886) was the gent for whom the Rock County city of Edgerton was named, in about 1853. An early 1900s historian, writing in the (Edgerton) Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter, initially told the tale that B.H. Edgerton was at first reluctant to allow citizens of the then Rock County village to use his name for their community. "Better wait until I'm dead," Edgerton supposedly told the men interested in naming this place after the engineer. "I might do something to discredit the name." The quip was later given prominent place in the classic book by Robert E. Gard and L.G. Sorden, "The Romance of Wisconsin Place Names." Prior to the christening of the community in B.H. Edgerton's honor, the village here was known as "Fulton Station," a name that created instant confusion with the Rock County village of Fulton. Edgerton, Wis., was incorporated as a city in 1883. B.H. Edgerton's younger brother — Milwaukee-area farmer, businessman and politician Elisha W. Edgerton (1815-1904) — is often erroneously listed in reference books and place name lists as the city's namesake. B.H. Edgerton worked as a surveyor, civil engineer, and railroad promoter throughout the Midwest, stopping long enough in Minnesota and Kansas so that other communities were named "Edgerton" in those states as well. A native of Saybrook, Conn., B.H.

Edgerton arrived in Green Bay, Wis., in the early 1830s, getting a job there preparing U.S. government surveys of lands in what was then Wisconsin territory. In 1835, he moved to Milwaukee and became an employee of the legendary founder of that community, Solomon Juneau. Assisting pioneer Wisconsin surveyor Joshua Hathaway, B.H. Edgerton also helped survey the older sections of Milwaukee's east side and named many of the streets there. B.H. Edgerton served as an alderman of the young city of Milwaukee for one term, from 1847 to 1848, and thereafter was identified with the promotion and construction of Wisconsin's railroads, chiefly the Milwaukee and Mississippi line (the first Wisconsin railroad to reach the Mississippi River, this line was later incorporated into the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul railway). Benjamin Edgerton, a first cousin to U.S. President Millard Fillmore, worked as a civil engineer from the late 1830s to the 1870s. "In the early 1850s, the extension of railways into and through the West enlarged Mr. Edgerton's field of activities and he became a pioneer in Wisconsin's railway development," the Wisconsin Magazine of History recorded in 1921. "The first railroad to be constructed was the Milwaukee and Mississippi River Railway, of which Mr. Edward Brodhead was the chief engineer. Mr. Edgerton was assistant engineer until the completion of the road to Waukesha, which place remained for a short period the terminus of the road. Upon its extension to Madison and the Mississippi River at Prairie du Chien, Mr. Edgerton became chief engineer and removed from Milwaukee to Madison in 1853, when he purchased a home on the shore of Lake Mendota." As engineer-in-chief of the Kansas Southern Railroad in the 1870s, B.H. Edgerton was again honored by citizens of the place in Johnson County, Kan., that later became known as Edgerton, by having his last name chosen as a place name. Edgerton, Kan., was incorporated as a city in 1883. Edgerton, Minn., is located in Pipestone County, in the southwestern corner of that state. The area

Lucky antique store discovery: Edgerton's history displayed

B.H. EDGERTON around this community contains a quarry where many Native American tribes found the soft stone to create ceremonial pipes. B.H. Edgerton was involved with the Southern Minnesota Railroad, which arrived in this part of Minnesota in October 1879. "Mr. Edgerton was essentially a man of domestic tendencies," the writer of B.H's 1921 biographical sketch noted. "Because his engineering occupation kept him so much from home, he finally withdrew from all such interests and established himself in an interest that permitted him to enjoy more of the privileges of home life." B.H. Edgerton married Sophia Hosmer on June 7, 1838. She died Aug. 16, 1910. Both B.H. and Sophia Edgerton are buried in Forest Home Cemetery, Milwaukee. The couple were the parents of two daughters and two sons. B .H.'s younger brother, Elisha, had arrived in Milwaukee in 1835, first clerking in Juneau's store. By 1837, Elisha Edgerton had settled on a farm at Wisconsin's Summit, in Waukesha County. In 1864, Elisha returned to Milwaukee, where he ran grain and livestock commission businesses. Elisha was a member of the state constitutional convention of 1846 and served as a state assemblyman in 1863. He was a leading member of the Wisconsin Agricultural Society.

Mark Scarborough's lucky fmd at an Evansville antique shop provided the cover page art for this year's Edgerton Reporter Tobacco Days edition. Scarborough found and rescued brittle, original, lithographed pages from the "Combination Atlas Map of Rock County, Wisconsin" — compiled, drawn and published "from personal examinations and surveys" by the Chicago firm of Everts, Baskin and Stewart in 1873, then printed by the Philadelphia concern of Duval and Hunter — discovering the magnificent map of 1870s Edgerton and the folk-artisty "views" of the American Hotel and the Babcock Block from the same time period. These images once decorated a roughly 120-page 'atlas. Now, they provide nifty historical context for our newspaper's celebration of the 40th annual Tobacco Days festival. (Reprints of the full atlas are available at the Fulton Store). In 1873, the then village of Edger-

ton boasted about 1,000 citizens, "mostly of American descent, energetic and enterprising," the compilers of the "Atlas" wrote. At that time, Edgerton's public and commercial buildings included "one graded school, three hotels, thirteen stores, one flouring mill, and one brick company, manufacturing about two million bricks annually." The bricks were white; "great quantities of them were shipped throughout the Midwest. Images from Scarborough's historic picture collection surround the map of ancient Edgerton. Clockwise (from the far left top corner) we see: •A real-photo postcard of the corner of West Rollin and Henry Streets, about 1908. •A colored, lithographed postcard of Front Street (an earlier name for Fulton Street), with the WillsonMonarch patent medicine and spice manufacturer at the far right. •A real-photo postcard of an enor-

mous sheep-feeding station, kept in the early 1900 nearby Edgerton's railroad depot. Thousands of sheep were dispatched by rail there to Midwest locales every week. •A real-photo postcard, circa 1940s, of the 1890s-to-1990s Carlton Hotel, once located on Henry Street. •A detail of a 1910-era colored, lithographed postcard of an Edgerton tobacco field. •An 1873 view of the Babcock Block. •An 1873 view of the American Hotel. •A real-photo postcard of the Charles Culton residence on Washington Street, circa 1911. •A detail from a 1950s-era, realphoto postcard of a few of Edgerton's then 40-plus tobacco warehouses. The publishers. staff and advertisers of the Edgerton Reporter hope all our readers enjoy the history we have gathered this year in this keepsake edition of our newspaper. Happy Tobacco Days.

By Kathy Citta Edgerton Area Chamber of Commerce Did you ever think that history and getting to learn more about Edgerton could be fun? This is the goal of the THD Scavenger Hunt being held during the 40th Annual Edgerton Tobacco Heritage Days, July 14-17. For a small $10 registration fee participants will have hours of fun following the clues to 30 locations that include local businesses, landmarks and historical sites. At each site drawing tickets will be collected and then turned in for a chance to win one of several great prizes. The top three prizes total over $1,500! The destinations are not only educational, but they give participants the opportunity to experience the best that Edgerton has to offer. Can't give you any more information than that or 1 might give away some of the sites; and that would be cheating! You'll have to join the hunt to experience the fun and excitement of this newest community event. It is very easy to participate in the 2011 Scavenger Hunt. First you need to stop in and register either at Convoy's Bar and Grill, or Threads Resale Shop from 11 a.m. on Thursday, July 14th through 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 16th. You will receive a player's packet that includes a name badge to show that you are in the game; a rules sheet, clue sheets and other documents. You then read the clues or study the pictures to find your way to the destinations. At each site you will be given a ticket or you may have to search for a ticket box. Each player is entitled to one entry per site. After you are done playing or have found all 30 sites, your tickets must be turned in to the location of your registration by 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 17th. The more sites you find the more chances you have to win one of the many great prizes. Prizes will be drawn and announced at 8 p.m. on the main stage at Racetrack Park on Sunday, July 17th. You do not need to be present at the drawing to win. First place prize is an Entertainment Package that includes a 42" Flat Screen HD television donated by Danielson Electric, Ray's Family Restaurant and Two Brothers Bar and Grill. The 1st place prize also includes a popcorn/movie basket donated by the Edgerton Chamber of Commerce and Dr. Video. Second place prize is a Backyard Fun Package with a Gas Grill donated by Deegan's Hardware, Pettit's Lakeview Campground and Edgerton Gear, Inc.; a Picnic Table donated by Nelson-Young Lumber; and a Cooler filled with beverages from Convoy's Bar and Grill. The 3rd place prize is a Patio Package that includes a 3 piece Bistro Set donated by IKI Mfg. and a Patio Plant Stand and Hanging Basket donated by Edgerton Floral. There are several other prizes to be given away that include a Mary Kay Pampering Package, gift baskets from local businesses and much more. Most prizes will be on display at various locations beginning mid-June through Edgerton's Tobacco Heritage Days. This has been an enjoyable event to plan and we hope to see many participants. You can play individually or assemble some of your friends or family members to compete amongst yourselves or other teams. The ideas and fun are endless as players run, walk or drive around town in search of their prize tickets. Amongst all the fun you may find a new place to eat, shop or visit and maybe make a new friend or two as well. If you have any questions regarding the THD Scavenger Hunt, call the Chamber Office at 608-884 1408. Most importantly, the chamber would like to thank the organizers of this event and all the generous donors for the fantastic prizes. Your support is greatly appreciated. A small hint: Some of our prize donors are on the clue sheet. Good luck and have fun!!!!

Car show brings back memories July 16

My `Cuda's 340 engine was rated at 275 h.p. I would wash and wax the inner fenders under the hood when I washed the rest of the car.

A column-mounted tachometer was installed with the red line set at 5500 RPM.

Hood scoops and stripes were part of a `Cuda package.

By Larry Witzel The 2011 Tobacco Days Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show begins at 7:00 am on Saturday, July 16, on West Fulton St. in downtown Edgerton. Motorcycle participants will receive free kickstand plates and car participants will receive dash plaques on the day of the show. All show participants will be eligible for free entry into Racetrack Park. The show benefits many local community charities, scholarships and projects, and is not for profit. Earlier this year, the Tobacco Days Car Show donated $500 to the second Vets Roll trip to Washington D.C., to honor Illinois and Wisconsin veterans of World War II and the Korean conflict. Last year's show featured 270 cars and 40 motorcycles. This year's show promises to be the best one yet! More classes are being added and a lot of hard work has gone into planning this year's event. As a car collector, I enjoy the Tobacco Days Car Show for various reasons. Seeing so many completely restored cars is an inspiration to those of us who are in the process of restoring a vehicle. This is a real motivation to get our unfinished project cars completed. One of the most enjoyable parts of the show are the car stories that are told by owners and spectators during the show. The following story is the one I often share at car shows with other collectors. During my high school days, in the late 1960s, I worked part time at a full service gas station, Five Points Atlantic Service in Norristown, PA. This was the perfect part-time job for me. I had always been interested in cars, and this was during the muscle car era. The station had two service bays, a 1965 Ford F350 tow truck, a lift, tire changer, wheel balancer and all the mechanic's tools necessary to work on any car of that era. Gasoline at that time was priced at 33.9 for regular and 37.9 for 100 octane premium. This was prior to the 1973 OPEC oil embargo, which led to price controls and gasoline rationing. Prior to the oil embargo, 100 octane fuel was common (e.g. Sunoco 260, Esso Extra, Chevron Custom Supreme, Super Shell, Texaco Sky Chief, Amoco Super Premium, Gulf No-Nox, Atlantic Imperial) until the clean air act of 1970, when octane ratings were low-


ered to 91. Tetraethyl lead as a valve lubricant was phased out and unleaded gasoline was phased in. Whitpain TWP, had their police cars serviced at the station. They had a fleet of black and white Dodges with powerful 440 cu. in. engines. The first time I performed a tune-up on one of these, the owner of the station, John Pericola, advised me (with a grin) that the tune-up was not complete until I had road tested it. The memories of that road test and the mellow sound of the 440's dual exhaust remain with me to this day! I was working on a Saturday in 1969 when Gary Lilly, the station's full-time mechanic, pulled in on the way home from the dealership with his brand new 1969 `Cuda 340 with a 4-speed transmission. This was a Plymouth Barracuda with the optional high performance `Cuda option. I can still remember exactly where he parked the car when he pulled in and how impressed I was when I first saw it. Gary (Moose was his nickname) had a history of frequently trading vehicles. I soon found myself hoping he would keep the `Cuda long enough so I could eventually afford to buy it from him. A year and a half later, with 22,000 miles on the odometer, I was able to buy the `Cuda for $1,900, a bargain by today's standards. I made a few upgrades, including a column mounted tachometer and Cragar wheels. I kept the car as clean inside and under the hood as I kept the exterior. This was the car my future wife, Bev, and I would take on dates and would later use as our family car. We sold the `Cuda in 1976, because we needed a large car for our growing family. Like so many car collectors, I regretted selling my original special interest car shortly after parting with it. In 1993 I had the opportunity to buy another `Cuda, almost a twin to the one I had sold 17 years previously. It had the same options as my original `Cuda and approximately the same mileage the first one had when I sold it. Sometimes life gives us a second chance. This was my second chance to replace the car I had regretted selling so many years ago. The "new" `Cuda is in the process of being restored. Details and photos of the restoration will be included in a future article.

Summertime Beneath the Cottonwood Trees by Betty Dallmann Witzel We used our early childhood imaginations to invent our days of play. We lived next to the alley that led up to the Wilson Mansion on Catlin Streetlater owned by the Menhall family, owners of the Highway Trailer Co. Our yard at 14 Broadway St. , (now #20) bordered the narrow lane, where fancy Packards & Buicks drove up to the Menhall house. At my Stricker grandparents' house, where we lived, a row of pink & white bush roses had been planted next to the alley. Two very old cottonwood trees were also there, furnishing wonderful shade & soothing sound of wind blowing through the heart-shaped leaves, at night. There was a shagbark hickory tree at the corner of the property, too. It was the perfect side lawn for our days of play, when company came for a birthday party, or for other days, when we played with our 6-inch celluloid dolls. Those dolls had come from the Borgnis Dime Store. The dolls lived in orange-crate dollhouses, with a first & second floor. Our artistic ability came forth easily, with these orange-crates, which had come from Augie Mayes' grocery



store, or from Ratzlaff Brothers Store. We had made little crocheted rugs for the floors, hand-made cardboard furniture, other toy furniture from the "Five & Ten", even a toy piano, & dining table and chairs; with a bedroom on the 2nd floor, with beds & feather ticks! We made clothes for the dolls & gave them names-dreaming up many life situations for them in their splendid houses. There were other days at neighbor friends' houses too making a childrens' playhouse in the old coal & wood shed, at Dawes' house, or acting in plays in Dawes' barn, playing "house" or playing "school" at Davis's house, & enjoying instrumental music, by Carol's Dad, - such as The Red River Valley, Put Those Little Shoes Away, & They Cut Down The Old Pine Tree. And always, we enjoyed the canvas swing on Hanson's front porch, when Mrs. Hanson had brownies for us or summertime play, with our orange-crate dollhouses, beneath the cottonwood trees, all is fondly remembered! Even today, there are 2 magnificent, huge cottonwood trees up at the north end of Albion Street. Their size is amazing! Have you seen them?

Seated on an old tobacco planter at Walkers' Service Station are, left to right, Mrs. Spike, Roger Lannoy, chairman of Tobacco Days, Mayor Spike and Bill Walker. Following the whistle blast that heralded the opening of the festivities, the party headed downtown for Maxwell Street Day, where Mayor Spike swung the first sledge hammer blow at the "demolition deal" which paid for the Maxwell Street Day grand prize.

Welcome to Edgerton's 40th annual Tobacco Heritage Days Celebration!

Greased pig wrangler From an August 1972 Edgerton Reporter: A team headed by Joe McGinnity won the greased pig contest on Saturday (during the first Tobacco Days in 1972). Here, Roger Lannoy, Tobacco Days chairman, presents him with the winner's certificate and blue ribbon. Bob Trulson was also a member of the 13-16 year-olds' team.



Bicyclists get into act From an August 1972 Edgerton Reporter: The small-fry and their decorated bicycles may have been temporarily overlooked in the judging of the larger units in the Tobacco Days Parade on Sunday afternoon (during the first Tobacco Days), but they made up for it on Tuesday by having their own competition. First prize, a new bicycle donated by the Coast-to-Coast Store, was won by Mike and David Stearns, for their own interpretation of tobacco setting. They are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Darrel Stearns. Second prize went to Billy Conway, and to Jane Heritage, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Russell Heritage.

We've always proudly supported this event,

Carol Marsden Field's Historical Stories By Betty Dallmann Witzel Mrs. Field told of Lake Koshkonong being called the "Chesapeake of the West". It was a hunting paradise, with the canvas-back duck being so plentiful. Her great grandfather Charles Lee, and Halvor Skavlem, pointed out, on a picture on the wall in the latter's home, persons such as Civil War General Philip Sheridan, Jay Cook, Publisher Mark Hanna, Cyrus McCormick, (grain reaper inventor), & Gov. Peck. Gen. Sheridan picked Carol's Grandpa, to guide him through the forests of Lake Koshkonong. Mrs. Edith Sheridan told Carol that she had heard many of the hunters stayed at the Lake House Inn. Unbelievable numbers of ducks, & some geese, flocked to the lake-atmigratory times, in the early years. It is of interest to me to read the names of Louis & Halvor Skavlem, - as my college roommate, Marion Swenson, of Stoughton, often told family stoCountry Twist will perform Friday night, July 15, from 7-11 p.m. in Race- ries of her family, the Skavlems.

The lake had many names, by the time Joshua Hathaway wrote about the lake, in 1849. The meaning of the lake's name is - "KOSHKONONG-THE By Kathy Citta, Edgerton Area Chamber of Commerce LAKE WE LIVE ON". To many, the most important word in the annual festival's title is 'Heritage.' Since there have been a few generations of Edgertonians since the festival's start up 40 years ago, education about our heritage has become more important and highly sought after these past several years. In answering the call to learn more about our ancestors and their pioneer spirit the Edgerton Area Chamber of Commerce has coordinated Living History events to be presented throughout the City during Tobacco Heritage Days on Saturday, July 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thanks to the help of many individuals and organizations, local residents as well as our many visitors to THD will be invited to step into Edgerton's past to experience some of the history that made our community what it is today. At the Train Depot located in the heart of Edgerton's historic downtown, the Edgerton History Museum will host educational events that will share Edgerton's history from the railroad, to its founding fathers, its manufacturing culture, education and medical growth. Visitors might even see some sports history as well. With the help of local historians and character actors, visitors can step back in time and talk to local 'celebrities' Benjamin Edgerton, Edgerton's founding father or maybe even Sterling North or Billy Sullivan. Following our local history, guests are invited to learn more! Just a short walk away from the Depot will be more living history at Heritage Pond Park (West Lawton Street) — home to the Jacobus Log Cabin and clay pits. `Pauline Jacobus' will be there to greet visitors. Also, the park will feature many demonstrations and presentations of folk arts and crafts such as wool spinning, buck skinners, quilting, knitting, iron works etc. Some items will be for sale. Demonstrations will also include unique musical performances of fiddlers, dulcimers and much more.

Coffee talk is usually small talk. But occasionally, the outcome can be something big. Take Tobacco Heritage Days for example. In the fall of 1971, a small group of Edgerton Chamber of Commerce members who regularly met for some morning small talk before work came to this conclusion: Edgerton needed a signature festival. "We were just a bunch of young upstarts," said Frank Vogl, one of the festival's original organizers. It just didn't seem fair that Monroe had Cheese Days, Fort Atkinson had Fortfest, Stoughton had Syttende Mai, Jefferson had Gemuetlichkeit Days and Edgerton had, well, nothing of the sort. The "upstarts" became determined to create a prolific festival with variety, fun for the whole family and a strong dose of civic pride. "We were not content with going to the public with five items of interest. We would end up with 30 events," said Vogl, who worked as a barber in Edgerton for over 20 years before retiring. "We wanted it big from day one. When the parade was put together, we had 12 high school bands performing. One parade (in a later year) had 147 entrants." Other original organizers included Judy Nelson, Mildred Harrison, Nora Stewart, Jim Douglas, Steve Hart, Harriet Cohen and Roger Lannoy. It was Nelson who first brought up the idea of a festival that Edgerton could call its own. "I tossed it out one day. I asked what people thought about getting the city together to have some fun," said Nelson, who was secretary of the chamber of commerce at the time. The makeshift 'Tobacco Days Committee' started planning the festival with a loan from the chamber. "One thing led to another, then another and another," said Douglas. Even after the celebration was

well planned, the group still didn't have a name, until Dorothy Hazeltine thought of Tobacco Days off the top of her head. The name was meant to reflect Edgerton's standing as the Midwest's leading producer of tobacco since the pioneer days, not to eventually create a controversy. "Back then tobacco wasn't such a no-no as it has become the past 1520 years," Vogl said. After years of debate, the title was changed to Tobacco Heritage Days to make a more explicit reference to Edgerton's history. On the last weekend of July, 1972, the first Tobacco Days weekend was held. It was deemed a success. "We paid the chamber back and had enough money to continue for another year," Nelson said. Among the events for children were the greased pig and greased watermelon contests. The pigs were coated in vaseline and competitors had to corral them. The watermelons were dropped in the old municipal swimming pool and children had to get them to shore. "The original intent was to make sure there were a lot of events for children," Vogl said. Another wet and wild activity in Tobacco Days' early years was the tug-of-war over Saunders Creek. Other events included a Maxwell Street Days shopping promotion, citywide auction, Venetian Night pontoon festival on the Rock River, dances, sporting events and a pageant based on Sterling North's writings. A `Drums in the Night' drum and bugle corps competition concluded the festival Sunday night. During that first year, Tobacco Days was sponsored by the chamber of commerce, but within two years, an independent committee had incorporated and a $1 membership fee was charged. The festival became so intense to organize that after a few years, organizers thought about making it biannual. "But people are creatures of habit. We also realized that our reach was not just a 20-mile radius. We reached far beyond that. People were coming up from Illinois and people were planning on it happening each year," Vogl said. On the flipside, there were some

who said the festival should be spread over two weekends each year. But Nelson likes the festival the size it is now. "This to me is about the size we wanted. I don't know if we could handle any more," she said. Tobacco Days has now become so ingrained on Edgerton's calender that it's anybody's guess what the city would be doing the third weekend in July without it. "It's unreal. It has become so well established that people are planning weddings and class reunions around it," Nelson said. The secret to the festival's success may be that it is able to adapt over time. "We are always open to new ideas," Nelson said. The crown jewel of Tobacco Heritage Days has always been the parade. Unfortunately, it almost got too big for its own good. "One year the parade got so extensive and so much work we thought maybe we could go without a parade," said Nelson. However, as has been the case for Tobacco Days through the years, more citizens stepped in to keep the festival - and all of its important parts, including the parade Each year, the parade features some Edgerton royalty, as Kings, Queens and Grand Marshals are chosen. In its first six years, it was the 'Tobacco Days Princess' who stole the show. Complete with a court, the princess would dress in bib overalls and ride the royalty float. Vogl remembers helping to choose the princess each year as part of a panel that would interview the candidates, who were high school students. The first princess was Donna Garey Morgan, who said she was encouraged to apply by her parents, Pearl and Don Garey, who also happened to be Tobacco Days King and Queen in 1981. Morgan appeared in the 1972 Tobacco Days Parade with her court, Teresa Winn and Jackie McGinnity. "I had to get nudged into it, but it turned out to be an awesome experience," Morgan said. "It was an honor to represent Edgerton and all it stood for." The position was enjoyable be-

cause of all the people she met, the events she attended and the towns she visited as an ambassador to Edgerton. She even got a call from the Wisconsin governor. Being princess was also a "job" because Morgan took her role as ambassador seriously. Part of the selection process for princess involved questions designed to measure the candidates' knowledge of tobacco because the princess was deemed an educator for people outside of Edgerton. Meanwhile, the first Tobacco Days Parade Grand Marshall was Judge Sverre Roang in 1972 and the Tobacco Days float in 1972's 42-unit parade featured a tobacco plant complete with an oversized tobacco worm. One long-time event organizers do not enjoy talking about is the tobacco spitting contest. While thriving early on, the event drew media attention and protests in later years due to its oddball and politically incorrect nature. Organizers grew tired of all the attention the contest received. "We got rid of it and still don't have it. It is not a sanctioned event," Nelson said. Now in its 40th year, there is no end in sight for Tobacco Heritage Days. "We thought maybe after 10 years it would fizzle out, but it seems to get bigger each year," said Douglas.

Recalling a golden age The following is a passage regarding the hauling of tobacco from the book "American Trucking: A Seventy-five Year Odyssey" by Robert M. Noll (submitted by George Prochazka). A nostalgic look at an industry that affects every American. What we eat, wear and drive are for the most part brought to us by truck. Indeed, almost every facet of our daily lives is touched by trucking. The furniture in our homes, the books we read and the fuel we consume are often transported by vehicles that are the subject of this work. Growing up in Chicago during the thirties, I had the opportunity to observe firsthand the beginnings of this fascinating industry. I saw history being made and the impressions still remain. The classic years of trucking were the late thirties and early forties, a time before air conditioners or 'west coast' mirrors; a time when 300 miles over flat country took ten hours and sleepers were narrow and uncomfortable. But, there were compensations--traffic was generally light, especially at night, and there was a strong feeling of camaraderie among drivers that no longer exists. Chicago was the Midwest hub of trucking during these classic years, and this is what it was like on typical late afternoon or early evening as the trucks began their long journeys through the night: In the warehouse districts where most of the truck terminals were located, the traffic reflected the commercial sights and sounds of the city. Often the factories would be letting out and honking horns and gonging streetcars made for chaotic traffic conditions. Nearby, the hash houses and friendly neighborhood taverns were beginning to fill, and if it was summer the saloon doors would be open and juke box music could be heard. Entering this atmosphere the truck driver would arrive at his terminal, check in with the dispatcher, pick up his bills of lading and climb into his already warmed-up tractor. After pulling up a few feet to close and lock the trailer doors, he would then enter the congested city traffic, easing his rig through the gears. Many other truck lines could be seen now, among them Watson Brothers with their big orange cornbinders (Internationals) bound for Omaha with a load of farm implements; Transamerican, with the Ford tractors and distinctive Old English lettering, loaded with canned goods for St. Louis; Mac Sim Bar and Ree Newkirk deadheading back to Otsego, Michigan, to pick up another load of paper; Denver to Chicago Lines and Pacific Intermountain Express rolling westward with general cargo--some of the rigs going as far as the fabled land of California. This was truly adventure! As the sun went down and the clearance lights went on, the trucks departed the city like a caravan, each carrying a share of the commerce so necessary to daily life. Sometimes this procession would pass through rain, and the standing water would irregularly mirror the myriad colored lights of the semis, and somehow the tawdriness of the city was diminished a bit by the reflected images. As the streets of the city fell behind, the highways of the country beckoned ahead--concrete ribbons flanked by corn fields and Burma-Shave signs, and one would occasionally see a red barn with "Chew Mail Pouch" painted on it. So that's the way it was so many years ago. And, although the big rigs still come and go today, it's not quite the same--because this was the Golden Age, a time we'll never see again. If there is a rationale for this, I feel strong nostalgia for these pioneer years and would like to share it with you, the reader.




Long before Interstate highways were thought of, truck drivers and motorists traveling the rural two-lane roads of the Midwest would often see a red barn such as this one on the farm of A.R. Hoffman on Route 224, just out of Van Wert, Ohio. Since 1910, Block Brothers of Wheeling, West Vir- In honor of the 40th anniversary of ginia, has used this method to advertise its product, and has painted some Tobacco Heritage Days, the Re4,000 signs. In deciding which barns to paint, a Block salesman would pick porter is publishing stories and artian area where the building was visible for some distance. The farmer cles documenting the first Tobacco would then be approached and told his barn would be painted free if the Heritage Days Festival, which was Mail Pouch message could be used on one side most agreed. Although the held in 1972. The following apred barns with their old familiar slogans have little to do with a history of peared in either the August 3 or Autrucking, they are a part of the nostalgic theme I have tried to impart to gust 10, 1972 issue of the Reporter this work.

Judge Wethal then called on the five contestants to hit a spittoon at 8 feet. Holsinger was the only one to hit it. Holsinger also had the longest single spit, 17 feet 8 inches, beating out Gary Bullion by two inches. Each contestant received an imitation brass spittoon decorated with an Edgerton Tobacco Days bumper sticker, compliments of the Edgerton Area Chamber of Commerce. Lowell Nye was chairman of this event. Judge Everson saved the day on the second round when the contestants ran out of "chaw" and Mr. Everson donated from his "private stock."

Bible ruled out: Can't be read in Wisconsin's public schools The New York Times March 19, 1890 One of the most important cases decided by a court in many years was that of Weiss against the (Edgerton) District School Board of Education. Some of the public school teachers were in the habit of daily reading the Bible to their pupils, and to this some Catholic parents objected, particularly because the Bible used was the St. James edition, portions of which are repugnant to the Romish Church. The case was tried in the Circuit Court for Rock County, which overuled the demurrer of the Catholics to the answer of the School Board. The action of the Circuit Court is now overturned by the (Wisconsin) Supreme Court, this giving the victory to the Catholics and declaring the reading of the Bible in public schools unconstitutional. The court says: "In considering the question whether such reading of the Bible in public schools is secretarian instruction, prohibited in public schools by the Constitution,' the books will be regarded as a whole, because the whole Bible without exception has been designated as a text book for use in the Edgerton schools, and the claim of the School Board is that the whole contents thereof may lawfully be so read. This being so, it is quite immaterial if the portions thereof set out in the return as the only portions thus far read are not sectarian. Yet it should be observed that some of the portions so read seem to inculcate doctrines of the divinity of Jesus Christ and of the punishment of the wicked after death, which doctrines are not accepted by some religious sects. "The court refuses to affirm or deny that the Catholic Church is opposed to common schools. The court

300,000 persons bathe daily at a cost of about one halfpenny each. Constantinople probably ranks second; then comes St. Petersburg, famous for the vast vapor baths to which the Russians flock in thousands every Saturday evening. The finest public

bath in the world is at Vienna. It has a basin 578 feet long by 156 feet wide and can accommodate 1,500 persons. The water is changed twice daily.

Edgerton's heritage relating to tobacco fanning is on full display on downtown sidewalks this summer in the weeks leading up to Tobacco Heritage Days, as live tobacco plants have been placed in front of participating businesses. In April, the Edgerton City Council approved the festival organizers' request to place up to one potted tobacco plant on the sidewalk in front of consenting downtown businesses. The pots are located in the "utility

Tim Clark, owner of a downtown Edgerton nursery (Clark Companies, 709 Walker Way), volunteered to grow the tobacco plants and provide them free of charge to the participating businesses. The plants serve as a reminder to the community about Edgerton's deep-rooted tobacco-growing heritage and the upcoming festival that, in part, celebrates that heritage, Clark said in April. He admits, however, that some people may scratch their heads when

"In addition to its regular customers, it was a place for children to spend their pennies for sweets, gum, ice cream and soft drinks," Pratt and Sayre added.

Memories of the A & P Irene Sampica, 89 years old, of Indianford, remembers Edgerton's old A & P grocery store, which once flourished on Henry Street. She worked there as a checker, shortly after graduating from Edgerton High School in 1941. Irene had married her husband, Jack, by April 14, 1942, and had then moved to Indianford by 1945 or 1946. So, the A & P story she remembers most of all must have happened, probably, during the short window of her personal history between 1941 and 1942. "We didn't have a counter to check out," Irene recalled. "We had to check out everything by hand. This short, fat lady came in. She had bought a whole bunch of groceries and come back. She said I had

charged her three cents more than I should have for a can of red salmon. "She had on jewelry and looked like she was really rich. I went to our boss, Bill, and I asked him what to do. He told me, `Give her the three cents.' Of course, that was when three cents could buy something. Not like three cents today. "But coming back for only three cents. I think I will always remember that." The three Dons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Deegan, Dunn and Kruckenberg â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were the grocery store's meat cutters in "the day." Other checkers at the store, working then alongside Irene, were Leona Sickler (the now late wife of Leo Jack Sickler, who has also sadly passed away); Martha Frank (who was last known as a citizen of Rich-

land Center); and Eloise Miller (also among the departed). Irene and Jack would have been married 69 years this April, if Jack had not died at age 92, on July 5 four years ago. The couple raised three daughters. She later worked for Edgerton's Nunn-Bush shoe factory and Janesville's Parker Pen, two firms that have since gone the way of the Dodo (but have left behind many fond memories for a generation that is swiftly fading from the scene). But Irene's fondness for her shortlived employment at the A & P remains supreme. "I liked working there," she said. "I liked my co-workers. They were the best people."

ALntie Lockwood's Hospital

Edgerton hospital celebrates past, jumps into future By Sunny Bowditch Special to the Reporter Imagine how difficult it must have been to secure dependable health care nearly a century ago. The year was 1918 when Edgerton nurse Edith Lockwood first opened her 506 Blaine St. home to patients, becoming Edgerton's first, unofficial hospital. Edgerton has a long tradition of forward-thinking health care advocates. Following Edith's lead, the Service Star Legion—a group of women who were friends and relatives of Edgerton-area World War I veterans—raised enough money to build a new facility, christened Edgerton Memorial Community Hospital and located at 313 Stoughton Road, in 1923. The Stoughton Road red-brick building had, at first, 15 patient rooms, four rooms for nurses, a nursery and an operating room. Mrs. Eben Dodge was the first patient. Fast forward to today. In just a few short months, Edgerton will make history again, opening a new hospital at 11101 N. Sherman Road that far surpasses anything that the hospital's founders could have ever imagined. The only critical access hospital in the nation with geothermal heating and cooling, this facility will offer inpatient and outpatient care; 24-houra-day emergency and urgent care services; physical, occupational and speech therapy; cardiac services; acute, wound and swing bed care; surgery; and much, much more.

From the beginning, patients have come to expect compassion, quality and a personalized experience from the Edgerton hospital. The next incarnation of the Edgerton Hospital and Health Services will be no different. "We are building a new hospital that is geared toward providing the resources needed to improve the overall health status of the communities we serve," said Jim Pernau, Edgerton Hospital's chief executive officer. The new facility, located at Highway 59 and Sherman Road, will open October 1, 2011. A grand opening celebration will be held there on Sunday, Sept. 25. Activities that day will include a fun run/walk from the old facility to the new, local entertainment, and snacks offered during a behind-the-scenes tours of the new hospital and healthy village site. The new hospital is being built with the environment in mind and well being of patients at heart. Patient rooms will be private and have windows that open. The geo-thermal heating and cooling system will allow each patient to adjust the temperature in their own room, making for a more comfortable experience. Walking trails around the hospital will help take wellness to the next level. An electronic medical record system will provide a safe transfer of information between providers. The new hospital's convenient location will allow an emergency helicopter to get from Madison to the Edgerton Hospital and Health Services in 10 minutes, expected to mean the differ-

ence between life and death. "The team at Edgerton Hospital is extremely excited to open this new hospital for our community," Pemau added. "The best local health care will now be available in an environmentally-friendly building that offers the most advanced medical equipment and staff. Our future is bright, and so is the future of local health care." While a federally financed Housing and Urban Development Agency loan provided 90 percent of the funding for the $26 million building project, the Edgerton Hospital Capital Foundation has been charged with raising $3 million to support this effort. The foundation has raised $1.7 million to date and is more than half way to its overall goal, with an additional $1.3 million needed to complete the project. The next major benchmark is to raise $550,000 by Sept. 25, 2011, which will bring us to 75 percent of our fundraising goal. The community is encouraged to support the hospital by making a secure donation online at or by calling the foundation office at 884-1401. Proceeds from the fun run/walk on Sept. 25 will also benefit the hospital, with the money used specifically to develop walking paths around the hospital grounds. Registration will be $20 per participant. Visit to register. Continued on Page 4

Bert Palmer Cottage a favorite gathering place By Betty Dallman Witzel

My parents bought the Bert Palmer cottage at Watts Springs at the Rock River, in the 1940's. This was a favorite place for gatherings, with relatives and friends. My dad, George Dallmann, liked to go to the cottage on a summer afternoon, also, for fishing - using his rowboat. This was when he had an afternoon off from

The Edgerton Reporter, Edgerton, WI 53534, Wednesday, July 13,2011

Edgerton's twisted moment of the 1920s: KKK here By Mark Scarborough Reporter Staff In the middle 1920s, when the Ku Klux Klan had its second rebirth throughout the American heartland as a sort of twisted community booster club, Edgerton men jumped onto the bandwagon with apparent glee. Edgerton's KKK members burned crosses on land nearby the Catholic Church, which was then located near the corner of North Swift and Rollin streets, as remembered in the early 1980s by then Edgerton Public Library Director Ruth Young. As a child, Young saw a, cross burning from the windows of the Swift Street grade school. "No one knew who set it on fire," Young told me in 1984. The Klan in Wisconsin was antiCatholic , pro-Prohibition and primarily non-violent. Patriotism and religion were central missions of the 1920s-era Wisconsin Klan. The first indication that the KKK had arrived in Edgerton was when a cross made of poles and soaked in kerosene, about 10 feet high and six feet wide, was set on fire at Central Park at about 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, according to the Reporter of May 9, 1924. "No one was seen placing it in position or lighting it," the Reporter noted about this fiery cross. News of Klan activities regularly appeared in the columns of the Reporter thereafter, finding room on the newspaper's "locals" page alongside notes from the Elks, Masons, KiwaMs, Albion Campus Club, Educational Club, Epworth League, Progressive Study Club, Knights of Pythias, American Legion, Women's Christian Temperance Union, Izaak Walton League and Community Council. Some 45 cars displaying Klan pennants paraded through Edgerton on Saturday, May 17, 1924, with most of the vehicles "out of town cars, bearing Illinois license plates," the newspaper told readers on May 23, 1924. The first "open" meeting of the Klan was held on the evening of May 23, 1924, at Edgerton's Academy Hall on Henry Street. Some 100 people gathered to hear the principles of "the most powerful secret, non-political organization in existence," with cards distributed to those present,

giving them an opportunity to join, the newpaper reported on May 30, 1924. Another "open" meeting of the Klan was held at an Edgerton Athletic Park on Aug. 15, 1924, with 400 people filling grandstands. Following the meeting, the driver of an automobile drove across a baseball diamond, cutting it up badly. "A member of the Klan informs us that they had men stationed at the grounds to see that no one drove onto the ball field, and that this was done after their people had left," the Reporter noted Aug. 22, 1924. Another "big religious Ku Klux Klan meeting," complete with speeches from ministers and other lecturers, was held the afternoon of Sept. 14, 1924. "Everyone is welcome to come and learn about the KKK.," the Reporter told its readers. A "naturalization meeting," where a "large class" of fledgling Klansmen earned their first-degree status, had been held at some undisclosed location, west of Edgerton, on Aug. 30, 1924. About 50 autos, starting from Janesville and Beloit, drove through Edgerton that evening, en route to the ceremony. Edgerton officials generally tended to accommodate the KKK, grant-ing approval for meetings in city parks. But apparent Klan actions in late 1924 aroused the ire of city Park Board President F.C. Meyers. "In the past, your organization has asked favors from the Park Board and you have received them, because you have described yourselves as peaceful, law abiding citizens of Edgerton," Meyers wrote Klan members in a letter published in the Reporter of Dec. 19, 1924. "Just recently, two crosses were burned, on private lawns, in front of the homes of two citizens of Edgerton, whose decency cannot be questioned. "In the eyes of law abiding citizens, such an act was nothing short of vandalism, and if it was perpetrated by you, as has been alleged, then you cannot expect further favors." Willis Dean, a Klan official writing from Beloit, complained in the Dec. 26, 1924, issue of the Reporter that these cross burnings on private property were the work of the Klan's enemies. The KKK was a Christian group devoted to assisting the police

in their duties, Dean wrote. "In no cases are crosses ever burned on private property where they will antogonize or within the fire restrictions of city or town," Dean added. The peak of Edgerton's Klan activity was apparently scaled by the spring of 1925. After that time, local newspaper mentions of KKK activity here become scarce. About 1,500 people attended a KKK meeting held at the Edgerton Driving Park — now known as Racetrack Park — on April 25, 1925, according to the May 1, 1925, issue of the Reporter. A parade of robed Klansmen — decked out in their "full regalia" — marched on foot and drove through Edgerton in their autos, starting at about 8 p.m. "Several prominent speakers" were in attendance and a "large class" of Klansmen were "naturalized in full form." Billed as the Klan's "Rock County spring conclave," this KKK gathering attracted about 250 uniformed marchers and 50 automobiles Wisconsin members of the Ku Klux Klan attend the funeral of Herbert Dreger, a Madison police officer who driven by other members of the Klan. was shot and killed in the capital city on Dec. 2, 1924. (Photo courtesy Wisconsin Historical Society; image An Aug. 14, 1925, Klan rally was number 35726). held at St. John's Park in Indianford, deputy sheriff's funeral attracted with "several speakers" giving talks roughly 1,000 robed Klansmen.

Lightning Kills Few "From the pages of The Edgerton Reporter, 100 years ago"

In 1906 lightning killed only 169 people in this whole country. One's chances of death by lightning are less than two in a million. The chance of death from liver, kidney or stomach trouble is vastly greater, but not if Electric Bitters be used, as Robert Masden of West Burlington, Iowa, proved. Four doctors gave him up after eight months of suffering from virulent liver trouble and yellow jaundice. He was then completely cured by Electric Bitters. They are the best stomach, liver, nerve and kidney remedy and blood purifier on earth. Only 50c at W.G. Atwell's.

Insects That Imitate Ostriches "From the pages of The Edgerton Reporter, 100 years ago"

A story from 1972...

Souvenir Balloon Fly to Indiana You might call this "the Little Balloons That Could"... fly, that is. At 7 p.m. on Friday, July 28, the first evening of Tobacco Days, 13-year old Douglas Dorn, Rt.1, released the two balloons he had bought as souvenirs of the celebration. He attached a tag with his name and address on the strings. On Wednesday. August 2, Doug relieved a letter from Wanatah, Ind. It contained his balloons and the following message: "Your balloons came down in our front yard at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 29. My little girl, Kelly Rae, found them. One balloon, the pink one was still inflated, so she played with it until today (Monday, July 31). We had an article put in the newspaper about finding the balloons with your name." "We live two miles south of a small town named Wanatah, on Highway 421. It is located in the northwest corner of Indiana. I thought you might like to know the location, because I looked up Edgerton in our road atlas." The letter was signed by Mrs. Leland Campbell, Box 353, Wanatah, Indiana. Thus, two colorful balloons from a Wisconsin celebration drifted over 150 miles to land 15 hours later on an Indiana farm...small world, isn't it?

The Glowworm

A Whack at Turtle Soup

It is generally agreed that dueling took its rise from the judicial cornbats of the Celtic nations. The first formal duel in England was that between William Count of Eu and Godfrey Baynard about the year 1096. Dueling was at its height in France about 1300, though it was pretty popular as late as 1528, in which year Francis I. sent a challenge to Charles V. In England dueling was checked in the army in 1792 and gradually disappeared from civil life with the coming of a more enlightened public opinion.. Dueling was never as popular in this country as it was in Europe, but nevertheless many famous duels have been fought here. The code may be said to have received its death sentence when Burr killed Hamilton. The decline after that was steady until it practically died out. - New York American.

tures falling to pieces. Aurora, Ottawa, DeKalb, Joliet, Rockford, Elgin, Dixon, Freeport, Lockport, Yorkville, Sandwich, Mendota and West Pullman, Ill.., and Kenosha, Milwaukee and other Wisconsin cities are reported feeling the shocks. No loss of life is reported anywhere. Reports indicate that the shock was severest around Aurora. In that city

and neighboring towns chimneys were felled by the tremors of the earth, doors were thrown open and telephone connections interfered with in a number of cases. The quake caused considerable excitement in some of the towns, many persons, especially housewives, being frightened by the rattle of their dishes and other commotion in homes.





Turtle soup is called green just because turtle fat is "kinder that color." And believe it or not, turtle soup will make anybody sweat green who eats of it often and much. Hogarth has a picture showing how green turtle soup and its fellow foods and drinkables in the good old golden days put London aldermen under the tables. From the viewpoint of nourishment turtle soup is not worth a tenth it costs. Sun dried turtles are found in some of the markets of the world, and many chefs say they are about as good as the fresh reptile. As for the true secret of mock turtle soup, it is only the scalp of a sucking calf, a gelatinous fraud, masquerading as a chunk of green turtle shell fat, but even so, it is better than the best genuine sea turtle soup at that. - New York Press.

Dueling "From the pages of The Edgerton Reporter, 10 years ago"


The glowworm is not a worm, but a species of beetle, to which the common firefly or lightning bug is closely related. The true glowworm is the female and is without wings. Its short legs and long body give it a vermiform appearance, and it can withdraw its triangular head into its neck. The adult insect feeds but little. Indeed, there is reason to suppose that the adult male does not feed at all. The larva, on the other hand, is carnivorous and devours small molluscs, either dead or alive. The light given out by the glowworm comes from a yellowish substance located on the underside of the abdomen. Though this light appears to glow steadily, it is really intermittent, consisting of flashes in quick succession, about 100 to a minute. Besides the ordinary light rays. Rontgen rays are emitted.

"From the pages of The Edgerton Reporter, 100 years ago"

The habit of the ostrich of burying its head and imagining that it has eluded discovery is copied after a fashion by certain insects, according to Dr. G. Rodman in his lectures on the subject of the stick insect, or bacillus rossi, which he has cultivated. These insects, which are so called because of their resemblance to dry sticks, have two fore legs which they fold completely over their eyes when disturbed and evidently think that in so doing they themselves are lost to view. The eggs of these insects, Dr. Rodman says, take something over six months to hatch. They are only one-tenth of an inch in their longest diameter, and by some miracle an insect which at hatching is three-quarters of an inch in length is packed into them. The stick insects destroy the weaklings of their num-

Tug-O-War from first Tobacco Days

From an August 1972 Edgerton Reporter: It hardly seems fair, but the losers in the Tug-of-War on Saturday (during the first Tobacco Days) were the only ones to get their pictures taken. The winning team, from The Spa tavern, pulled both of their opponents, The Sundowners and The Sportsmen, into Saunders Creek. The team from The Sportsman's Bar was dunked first by The Spa.

TD Tournament to cap season The Tobacco Heritage Days Tournament will again bring the curtain down on another Edgerton Little League season. The eight-team tournament got underway Tuesday with quarterfinal games at Race Track Park. The first-round matchups had the Brewers (6-8) and Cardinals (6-7-1) squaring off at 5:30 p.m. and the Reds (6-7-1) and A's (5-9) meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tonight's quarterfinal games will have the regular-season champion Marlins (12-2) playing the Orioles (4-9-1) at 5:30 p.m. and Red Sox (59) going toe-to-toe with the Giants (10-3-1). The tournament semifinal games This is a picture of the two owners who started Burns Bus Co. in 1946, will be played Friday at 5:30 p.m. and two others who helped the company at times.

Dick and Larry took over from Bill and Paul in 1971 when Larry came home at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. from serving his country in VietNam, and Dick sold out his half in 1977. The third-place game is slated to Submitted by Susan Burns start at 3 p.m. with the championship game following at 5:30 p.m. The above picture was taken around 1950 or a little later. Ask Veronica Burns when she thinks this was taken.

Congratulations to our hometown on their 2011 Tobacco Heritage Days Celebration!

The Spa heavies went on to win the Tug-of-War by dragging their Sundown opponents into the drink. (An apt phrase for tavern teams, don't you think?) The Tug-of-War was sponsored by Bob Venske of Sundown.

The Bogert, the town of Albion home of famed pottery artist Pauline Jacobus, burned to the ground at the corner of Main Street and Jacobus Road on July 19, 1911. The fire, documented on the face of this real-photo postcard, effectively ended the connection to Edgerton of this founder of Pauline Pottery. Jacobus, who was born in New York state on Dec. 13, 1840, and died in Dousman, Wis., on July 6, 1930, was the artistic manager of the Edgerton pottery firm named in her honor from May 1888 to December 1909. Thousands of pieces of Pauline Pottery, a richly glazed majolica-type ware often featuring natural motiffs like flowers and fish, were manufactured here and sold throughout the nation, in reknowned stores like Marshall Fields of Chicago and Kimballs of Boston. Paulineware now sells for thousands of dollars for each piece. Among the may varieties of pottery made by the firm were very elegantly decorated humidors for the locally wrapped cigars of the Edgerton Cigar Co. (Photo courtesy Mark Scarborough)

Albion Academy &Normal Institute, located off the "village green" in Dane County's Albion, flourished from about a decade before America's Civil War to about the time that America entered World War I. During its 65 years of existence, from 1853 to 1918, thousands of students acquired a classically-based education there. Among the famed teachers of the institution were Thure Kumlien (natural science and botany) and Rasmus Anderson (Scandinavian literature and culture). Famous graduates of the Academy included three-time governor of Colorado, Alva Adams; Edward Lee Greene, world-famous botanist; and U.S. Sen. Knute Nelson of Minnesota.

Festival breakfast returns Kicking off Edgerton Tobacco Heritage Days this year will be the festival's farm breakfast, which will be held at the Scott and Amy Farrington farm in Fulton Township (8239 N.

The breakfast will be offered from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m.. Thursday, July 18, and include a hearty meal of pan-

cakes, scrambled eggs, Canadian bacon, sausage links, milk, juice and coffee. A Bloody Mary bar will also be offered by 2 Brothers Bar of Edgerton. Bar owner Ilir Banushi will be donating all profits from the bar to high school scholarships. The main speaker at the breakfast will be University of Wisconsin-Extension Rock County Dairy and Livestock Agent Randy Thompson. Shelly Schieldt will serve as emcee. Another attraction at the breakfast

will be a display of parade floats created by the Tim and Cheryl Krausse family that showcases the numerous steps in the tobacco-growing process. The floats have been seen previously in the Tobacco Days parades. Related T-shirts will also be sold with all profits benefiting high school scholarships. The Edgerton Wrestling Club has volunteered to cook at the breakfast and also set up the event.

Arts in the Park returns for 38th year

The best part of the day is the evening, when the whole family is gathered together around the lamp. The old days of the smoky fireplace and flickering candle are gone forever, In their place have come the convenient oil stove and the indispensable Rayo Lamp.

There are to-day, in the United States alone, more than 3,000,000 of the Rayo lamps, iiving their dear, white light to more than 3,000,000 homes. Other lamps cost more, but you cannot get a better light than the low-priced Rap) gives, It has become so popular we may almost call it " the official lamp of the American family." The Rayo is made of solid brass, with handsome nickel finish--an ornament anywhere. Ask your dealer for a Rayo lamp ; or write, for descriptive circular to any SetriCy

Remember the Hudson? by two men named Brown and

Edgerton's Donald Ellingson, 81, of 486 Fairway Circle, remembers the Edgerton Motor Co. (which was once located where Sara's Health & Fitness is now, at 121 N. Henry St, although the firms address during its heyday was 116-119 N. Henry St.) "I worked in the Edgerton Motor Co. building from 1947 to 1989," Ellingson said. He started out there as a parts man, then pumped gas and took in service orders. From 1947 to 1970, Ellingson was an employee at this shop. From 1970 to 1989, Ellingson was the owner of this business. In 1988, Ellingson "cancelled out" as a new car dealer. He ran the service shop until 1989, then he sold the building. The building was razed to make room for the health and fitness center there now. The Edgerton Motor Co. had started business in 1912, owned then

Lampman. By 1914, two men named Mabbett and Stark had purchased the business from the previous owners. By 1916, Mabbett was of the opinion that everyone who wanted a car in Edgerton had purchased one, so he sold the Edgerton Motor Co. to Justus (LA.) Ellingson, who was Donald Ellingson's uncle. In 1919, J.A. Ellingson took in a partner, Mel Brenhaug. When Brenhaug retired in 1947, Donald Ellingson "took over his hours." When his uncle JA. stepped away from the busines in 1970, Donald Ellingson purchased J.A.'s interest in the firm and took over. During the same period, Donald Ellingson was also involved in the operation of the Tobacco City Oil Co. (which began in 1922 and ended in 1992). Near the end of its life, the Tobacco City Oil Co. had a rented location on the grounds of the Nelson-Young Lumberyard.

The Edgerton Motor Co.'s wrecker during the 1920s was this converted Hudson. The business was located on Henry Street, roughly where Sara's Health & Fitness is located in 2011. Donald Ellingson was involved with the business from the 1940s to the 1980s. The firm was once owned by Ellngson's uncle.

An (Edgerton) Wisconsin Tobacco Reporter advertisement from 1928 shows how pricey the cars were that year at the Edgerton Motor Co. Used cars, as always, cost slightly less. The Henry Street firm sold Chevy sedans and landaus, as well as Willys-Knight touring cars, but eventually specialized in Hudsons.

Williams starred at every level Rollie Williams is one of the two most celebrated athletes to come out of Edgerton. He starred in football, basketball and baseball at Edgerton High School from 1920-1923. Williams went on to play all three sports at the University of Wisconsin and is one of only four athletes in Badger history to earn nine letters. While at Wisconsin, he was an All-Western Conference selection in basketball and football. He was also known as the fleet-footed outfielder on the Wisconsin baseball team. Williams teamed with Stoughton's Guy Sundt in the backfield for the football Badgers. He was inducted into the Wisconsin Athletic Hall of Fame in 1960. Williams, who was born in 1897 and died in 1968, also played in the National Football League for the Racine Legion in 1923. The NFL was formed by 11 teams

in 1920. It was originally called the American Professional Football Association and changed its name to the National Football League in 1922. The Racine Legion was in the NFL from 1922 to 1924. The 1922 team finished sixth in the 18-team league with a 6-4-1 record. Following graduation at Wisconsin, Williams coached football at Millikin University in 1923 and posted a 4-5 record. He later coached basketball at the University of Iowa from 1930-1942 and again in 1951. Williams was the winningest coach in Iowa history until Lute Olson and Tom Davis both surpassed him. Williams later went into athletic administration at Iowa, serving as the Hawkeyes' assistant athletic director.

Through hot, sunny, humid, rainy, fortunately - not snowy days, we have been selling our delicious pies to an eager parade of customers. Selling of pies was scheduled to start at 9:00 a.m.; however, every year, someone needed coffee and pie for breakfast earlier so we started selling when the first customer showed up and continued until all was sold and our fannies were dragging. One of our earliest and best customers was the late Jim Neal. Jim would arrive early, pick out his favorite pie and return two or three times for his next favorites - don't remember him ever returning a fourth time! Through the years we have baked and sold thousands of pies. One of our members, the late Ruth Danielson, would make 20 plus pies herself and was still doing that into her high 80's. The money earned enabled us to award two scholarships every year to Edgerton High School seniors, donate money to the Edgerton Public Library, Edgerton Hospital, The Depot, Edgerton EMT's, and numerous other things within the Edgerton Community. It has also allowed us to participate in the charities and events sponsored by our national organization, General Federation of Women's Clubs. It has been our privilege and pleasure to be a part of Tobacco Heritage Days these many, many years. Our membership has dwindled considerably and we are all aging; so, 2011 will be our last year for the Pie & Ice Cream Social. We want to thank the helpers needed in preparing for the event. We also want to thank the community and visitors for their support throughout the years.

Women were the mainstay of Edgerton's turn of the last century tobacco business.

Saturday's Rascal Run to feature four levels of challenge As many as 300 runners and walkers are expected to compete in Saturday's Rascal Run. The event includes a 1-mile run, a 5K run, a 10K run and a 5K walk and is held each year in conjunction with Edgerton's Tobacco Heritage Days festivities. The 5K run, 10K run and 5K walk will start will start simultaneously at 8 a.m. The 1-mile run will start five minutes later. The Rascal Run attracted 250 runners and walkers each of the last two years, with the majority competing in the 5K and 10K runs. "We are hoping for a few more

this year, but we will see,"- said event coordinator Jerry Roth. Medals will be presented to the top five finishers in each race in the boys and girls 12 and under divisions. Medals will be presented to the top three finishers for males and females in the older divisions. Electronic timing will be used in the 5K and 10K runs. The race courses feature asphalt on rolling countryside.

There will be multiple water tables set up on the 5K and 10K courses. The 10K course will be different this year. It will start at the entrance to Race Track Park and proceed out Highway N. It will continue on Highway N until runners reach the Hermanson farm. At that point, they will turn around and return on Highway N to the finish line. The 5K course will start at the in-

tersection of Highway 59 and IKI Drive. Runners will go west to Dallman Road and from there to Highway N and then back to Race Track Park. All the finish lines wull be at the entrance to Race Track Park. Rock County Sheriff's deputies will assist with traffic control. Pre-registration ended Friday. Registration on the day of the race will be from 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. T-shirts will be presented to the

first 250 runners. Roth is now hoping the weather man cooperates. "We have not had rain the last two years," he said. "The only way it will not be held is if we have lightning." The Rascal Run is sponsored by the Edgerton Rotary Club. Proceeds go to scholarships and Rotary functions. It typically raises $3,000.

Known in the early 1900's as the largest tobacco warehouse in America, this building is now the Rinehart Taxidermy business.
