STATELINE NEWS--At Bushel & Peck’s Local Market in downtown Beloit, some of the most popular items sold -- cherry bomb hot sauce, cherry lavender jelly, classic dill pickles and pickled beets -- are made in the market’s own preservation kitchen.
The foods prepared in that kitchen, which began operating in 2010, fit in with the locally sourced milk, cheese, meats and more offered in the market. And many of the finished products, like the hot sauce, also are used in food served at the market’s café.

WALWORTH COUNTY TODAY--Aruna Jha, the mother of two grown daughters, remembers feeling somewhat anxious when the girls -- particularly the older one -- started college.
“It was a little bit tougher when the first one went off to school. Parents know the transition is hard the first time you experience it. The feelings, concerns and anxieties are going to be a little different,” said Jha, an assistant professor in the department of social work at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. “With my older daughter, compared to the younger one, I was more concerned, more vigilant, possibly more intrusive.”
