WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY-- The first time Julie Dieterle walked a labyrinth, she followed the same winding stone path set into the floor of the 12th-century Chartres Cathedral in France that people had been walking on for more than 1,000 years.
At Chartres, the 42-foot diameter labyrinth was used by many medieval pilgrims unable to travel to the Holy Land as their own version of a spiritual quest. Today the circular paths of labyrinths remain a form of meditation for many.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER--The theme was Bushels of Fun for Everyone, and most who attended the 88th annual Rock County 4-H Fair, the oldest 4-H fair in the United States, likely agreed with that assessment.
The six-day celebration ends July 30 at the Rock County Fairgrounds in Janesville.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY--One can envision the conversation going this way: A wayward traveler to Walworth County arrives at a tavern and asks, “Can you tell me how to get to Westville?”
And one of the locals answers, “Well, it’s just southwest of Fayetteville, and both are a little northwest of Pecks Station.”
The uninitiated would need to know their area history extremely well, as in the 19th century starting from the late 1830s.
