WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Audience members viewing “End of Fall” at this year’s Beloit International Film Festival (beloitfilmfest.org/films/end-of-fall/) may find the movie’s locale and even some of its extras familiar. That’s because independent filmmaker and 1992 Big Foot High School grad Joselito Seldera shot his first feature film, a crime thriller, in Walworth County, where he grew up.

Seldera, who earned a master’s degree in filmmaking from the University of Southern California and now makes his home in Los Angeles, often returns to Wisconsin to visit his parents and friends. He might also be here scouting for another location.

Some of these developments are part of the city’s long-range development plans, while others are coincidental and fortuitous.

They gather around their smartphones to comment on Facebook posts.  

The technology may be changing, but good local stories always generate a buzz, whether it’s a 20-year-old Sharon woman who overcame life-threatening odds or 19th century shipwrecks as close as the waters of Geneva Lake. As we look back on the year just past, we review five of the stories that really got readers talking in 2016:
