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.”

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY — If you’re a fan of bluegrass, you know exactly where you’ll be come Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 9 and Sept. 10: listening to the sweet blend of guitars, banjos, mandolins and fiddles at East Troy’s 24th annual Bluegrass Festival. Take a moment while you’re there to stop and thank the woman behind the festival — she’ll be mingling with bluegrass lovers on the square — award-winning composer Melissa Sherman.
In 1994, Sherman was a single mom with three young children and a business, Melissa’s Country Baskets and a Touch of Heart, located across from the village square in East Troy. She was also a bluegrass guitarist and upright bass player looking to play, but busy with life.
