WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- For Mark Duran, memories of war are a constant companion. But so, too, is Duran’s art. And it’s the latter that helps him focus on a future that’s alive with color and hope.
Duran, 43, of Delavan is an Army veteran who served and was seriously injured on the front lines in Afghanistan in 2005.
Much has changed since Allan Sherman penned his Grammy-winning “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh” in 1963, a jingle about the fictional Camp Granada that he based on his son’s actual letters home while attending summer camp.
However, parents can rest easy when it comes to youth sports camps because the Stateline area boasts topnotch facilities and instructors.
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s athletic camps began June 19 and run through Aug. 5, with options including wrestling, bowling, gymnastics, volleyball, football, tennis, basketball, wheelchair hoops, soccer and cross-country.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- On most days, “the Kettle” rewards hikers with scenic views, wildflowers, wildlife and the enjoyment of being outdoors in the glacial landscape.
But those who venture along the Kettle Moraine State Forest’s interpretive trails garner even more -- historical insights, cultural information and maybe even a glimpse of what the land might have looked like long ago.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- More than 1,000 classic cars, show trucks, motorcycles and special interest vehicles are expected to converge on the shores of Delavan Lake on Sunday, July 10, when The Cars Time Forgot car show takes over the grounds of Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan.
A special appearance by The Batmobile is one of the highlights. The caped crusader’s most famous mode of transportation is made possible by the Volo Auto Museum and the Delavan-Delavan Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Frank Breneisen takes his art with him wherever he goes, and the retired art professor has made stops around the world, teaching in England on a Fulbright scholarship, building playgrounds in Kenya and exploring rural Romanian villages on foot.
Breneisen’s artistic talents are as varied as his travels: drawing, painting, print-making, photography and ceramics, but there isn’t a field he isn’t at least willing to try -- even architecture. After spending decades heading the art department at Morningside College in Iowa, Breneisen is back home in Fontana, where he spent his teenage years. He and his wife, Jennifer, remain involved in the community, living in a house he built himself, complete with a wide-ranging art collection and a basement studio, dubbed Frog Hollow Pottery.
