The four-day festival includes the Rotary carnival, chocolate tent with eating contest, roving entertainers and plenty of live music.
WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Here in the Midwest we tend to take our farms for granted, surrounded as we are by the red barns of earlier generations.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Emily Johnson couldn’t bear to hear her dad had decided to sell the Farmall 300. The tractor had been bought by her great-grandfather, who started a farm near Orfordville in 1936. It was sold to her grandpa and later her dad, who both had ridden it through those same farm fields.
So she bought it.
STATELINE NEWS -- “We have not come close yet to finding the perfect soybean because perfection is not achievable, but every year we try to get as close as possible.”
That has been Bill Campbell’s philosophy since joining Dairyland Seed Co. as a cross-breeder/germinator on Nov. 1, 1972.
He has worked with corn and alfalfa, but Campbell has concentrated his energy and efforts on soybeans since 1984.
ELKHORN -- He put students first for more than four decades. Individualized education programs, meetings with teachers, listening to parental concerns and wrangling over budgets were only a few items on his weekly agenda.
Greg Kostechka no longer worries about these things. That’s because he retired in March after 42 years at Lakeland School, the centerpiece of Walworth County’s special education system.
