WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- It’s 2017, and people don’t gather around the water cooler anymore to talk about what’s going on in their communities.
They gather around their smartphones to comment on Facebook posts.
The technology may be changing, but good local stories always generate a buzz, whether it’s a 20-year-old Sharon woman who overcame life-threatening odds or 19th century shipwrecks as close as the waters of Geneva Lake. As we look back on the year just past, we review five of the stories that really got readers talking in 2016:
DELAVAN -- His military assignments took him to places as exotic and distant as Morocco, Trinidad and Cuba, and his post-war business trips had him crisscrossing the United States from Florida to California, but next week will be Dave Perkins’ first trip to Washington, D.C., when he and some 200 other veterans depart Beloit and roll into the nation’s capital on a fleet of buses.
