Working for the life of the party

Written by

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- The last Democratic presidential candidate to win Walworth County was Woodrow Wilson in 1912. From then on the county has been considered -- certainly by political analysts -- a Republican stronghold.

The closest it came to leaning blue since then was 2008, when Sen. John McCain won it by 2.6 points. And although President Donald Trump got only 34 percent of the county’s vote in the Wisconsin primary, he won it by 57 percent in the November election, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 37 percent.

Just how red -- or purple -- is Walworth County? Ask the grassroots party people.

Not a maze, but a journey

Written by

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY-- The first time Julie Dieterle walked a labyrinth, she followed the same winding stone path set into the floor of the 12th-century Chartres Cathedral in France that people had been walking on for more than 1,000 years.

At Chartres, the 42-foot diameter labyrinth was used by many medieval pilgrims unable to travel to the Holy Land as their own version of a spiritual quest. Today the circular paths of labyrinths remain a form of meditation for many.
