WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Awards season is upon us. One by one, the Golden Globes, Emmys and Oscars will shine brightly on our TVs, tablets and elsewhere. One honor after another for the best of the best. Seems there are more awards and lists than ever these days.

Sometimes the best awards are given for those actions or achievements on a much smaller scale. That’s where you would find Arno Crowley, fifth-grader. Even Arno’s name, which originally belonged to his great-great grandfather, is worthy of distinction.

Fired up about football

WHITEWATER -- As any NCAA Division III team can tell you, it’s bad enough playing against the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Warhawks, currently ranked first in the division, on their home field, but nothing punctuates that feeling better than the booming cannon fire that erupts right after they’ve scored on you.

Read the current edition here:

Mike Lesko, affectionately known as "The Cannon Man," has been making that victory blast possible for the past 20 years. Lesko, at the command of his 2 1/2-inch-bore confederate mountain rifle replica, has fired a powerful 6-ounce gunpowder shot to celebrate every single Warhawks touchdown during a regular season home game over his long tenure as the team’s artilleryman. The university’s football tradition is so entrenched that it predates much of the current athletic department’s staff.

With the results in from Tuesday’s primary vote, the field now is set for the Nov. 4 general election.

JANESVILLE MESSENGER -- Voters had another chance to listen to candidates for the 15th Senate seat when they squared off July 23 at the Rock County Fairgrounds in a debate hosted by Tim Bremel on his WCLO Radio show, "Your Talk Show."

Kite art above Whitewater

WHITEWATER -- Nearly 60 kites by children and adults as well as amateur and professional artists grace the light poles on Main Street, First Street, and Center Street in Whitewater now, and they will be there all summer.

The tenth public art project of the Whitewater Arts Alliance is "Up, Up and Away in Whitewater," and features a variety of fabulous and creative concoctions, including "Kindergarten Hands," The Duck-Tape Kite," "Tree Caught in a Kite," and "Summer Flowers."  

One of the kites commemorates the life of Treyton Kilar, the 6-year-old Whitewater boy killed in an auto accident in 2010--and features the Treyton Field of Dreams.  

Another, by the Whitewater High School Art Department, is a remembrance honoring Jerry Stauffacher, who taught at Whitewater High School for over 30 years.

Students share veterans' stories in film

 WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- To serve one’s country is a great honor.  Countless tributes set in granite, prestigious awards handed out by presidents and national holidays bear witness to a sacrifice that truly cannot be repaid.

Read the current edition here:

Now some of those stories of sacrifice have been recorded and preserved in a documentary film.

“Mission to Honor” was created by a handful of students at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The students didn’t set out to make a film, but as senior Katie Klepper points out, it was the right thing to do.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- How we adorn our bodies says a lot about who we are, where we’ve been, and who we aspire to be.

Body adornment may exemplify beauty, power, ceremony or social status. Jewelry may be worn to mourn or remember a loved one; tattoos may mark an important achievement or represent a specific time in one’s life.
