5 must-do events for summer: Stateline

Written by

Memorial Day weekend is the first big holiday of the summer --and a precursor of things to come. The Young At Heart Festival is held this weekend in Loves Park. The event’s musical lineup is bound to get you revved up for the rest of summer.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- For more than 20 years, Terri Yanke, a retired special education teacher in Walworth County and a member of the Delavan Lioness Club, has been a volunteer transporter in a vast relay system nicknamed the “Cornea Express.”

The network involves some 2,500 members of 270 Lions and Lioness Clubs -- nonpolitical service clubs -- throughout Wisconsin, including 11 in Walworth County, who take human eye tissue either to the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin in Madison or local surgical centers -- such as Aurora Lakeland Medical Center in Elkhorn -- that do corneal transplants.

BELOIT -- Law enforcement officers sometimes have a thankless job, responding to situations that often threaten their safety -- and their sanity.

Author Hilary Dickinson shares stories from law enforcement officers about their most memorable calls in her book "Wisconsin 5-0: From High-Risk Police Calls to Comic Cop Stories." The book includes stories from 30 law enforcement officers from throughout Wisconsin.

STATELINE NEWS -- A town of Beloit man has been charged in the death of a 19-year-old Beloit woman who police say he met through social media.

Andre D. Robinson Sr. was arrested May 9, 2015, at his home on Dewey Avenue after the body of Brandy L. Carroll was discovered in his garage.

DELAVAN TOWNSHIP -- It’s just one day to honor veterans, but what a day.

Bob Johnson, who lives in the town of Delavan with his wife, Annelle, served as a forward observer with the 14th Infantry in 1952 and 1953 during the Korean War.
