WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- They haven’t received the big-time, national media attention like other incidents around the country. However, Kurt Picknell has seen plenty during his two-plus years as Walworth County sheriff and 26 years overall with the office.

Picknell, 53, officially took the reins in January 2015. And although policing in the Stateline area may differ greatly from big-city law enforcement, it’s still law enforcement. That means long hours and dangerous, stressful situations go with the territory.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- The Big Top is coming down.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, which called itself The Greatest Show on Earth, announced early this year it was closing in May, after rallying for years against a difficult economy, changing tastes in entertainment and pressure from animal rights groups.
