WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Most of us spend either too much or too little time planning for retirement. There are books, seminars, even YouTube channels dedicated to helping the 9-to-5 crowd plan for their “golden years.”
While the prospect of taking a break from the daily grind sounds good to some, the flip side is that there’s not much advice for those who retire with not much to do.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- There’s something for everyone this summer in Walworth County, but this year, there’s one event you won’t want to miss -- top U.S. yacht racers will compete in the Inland Lake Yachting Association’s annual championship.
No. 1: Excitement on Geneva Lake
Last held on Geneva Lake in 2010, the 2015 Inland Lake Yachting Association annual championship will attract more than 250 teams with 875 sailors from 30 different clubs.
JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Everyone looks forward to summer --but then things get busy and before you know it, the barbecues are done, the kids are back in school and it’s time to fall back into your routine. This year, in order to make sure you make time for the really fun stuff, we’ve gathered together five events that are a must-do for summer.
No. 1: Take a ride
If you’ve got a motorcycle, you’re in for a great summer lineup of events, so jump in the saddle and head on over to Boardtrackers Harley-Davidson in Janesville. The dealership, formerly known as Kutter Harley-Davidson, was sold by co-founder Joanne Kutter to Sara and Eric Pomeroy, who will continue its sponsorship of the MDATub Run, set for Friday and Saturday, June 19 and June 20. The annual event has raised more than $2 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association over 20 years.
I wear an Army hat most of the time. No, it is not official -- I was never in the military -- but the hat looks fairly genuine. I get a lot of, "thank you for your service" accolades.
It never was intended for that purpose when I got it at Fort Polk during my son-in-law’s memorial service. That’s right, I had to lose someone to get it.
ROCKTON -- A victory parade celebration will be held Wednesday, May 20 at Hononegah High School Performing Arts Center in Rockton for the returning veterans of the sixth VetsRoll bus tour.
Buses are expected to arrive sometime between 9:45 p.m. and 10 p.m.
