WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- After walking through hundreds of acres of farm fields as crop scouts for four years, Zachary and Mitch Fiene knew there had to be a better way.
The cousins figured that crop conditions could be viewed better from the sky and started DMZ Aerial, which provides unmanned aerial vehicles for the agriculture industry. The vehicles are drone planes with a camera attached to them. The camera takes aerial photographs of crops to detect potential problems.

Dan Trudell has been playing the piano during all of this century and in the latter half of the one before that.
