STATELINE NEWS -- It’s Memorial Day weekend, and summer already seems to be in full swing in the Stateline area.

    The summer festival season began Friday, as it always does, with the Young at Heart Festival in Loves Park.

But there are many other events happening throughout the summer; if if they are not on your calendar yet, the should be.

ROCKTON -- Opponents of a proposed asphalt plant in Rockton are claiming victory -- at least for now -- after the company that wanted to build the plant withdrew its request.

The Winnebago County Zoning Committee on Wednesday voted to reject a special use permit that would allow an asphalt plant to operate along Black’s Quarry in Rockton.

 The final decision, however, is up to the full Winnebago County Board, which meets March 9, 2017.

Highlighted activities include the Candy Cane Craft Fair, which will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Greater Community Center.

ROCKTON -- Dan Wuthrich could be putting the final brush strokes on his art career.

    Wuthrich, 81, of Rockton is hosting "The End of a Journey" art exhibit at the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator, 520 E. Grand Ave. in Beloit, through Aug. 25, 2016. Wuthrich said this could be his final art exhibit as he contemplates retirement.

Welcome to the redesigned Walworth County Sunday, Stateline News and Janesville Messenger.

The new look papers will arrive at your home this weekend.

We hear a lot of talk about the decline of the printed newspaper and what the news business will be like a few short years from now.

Stateline Chamber launch party set for Feb. 11

In this season of good wishes, a special variety of kindness has broken out in some of the communities we cover with our CSI Media newspapers.

I first noticed it earlier this month in a Facebook post from the Rockton Police Department. One of our papers, the Stateline News, covers the village located just over the border in Illinois.

The post showed a photo of a Starbucks gift card with the now familiar hashtag #bluelivesmatter, which began on Twitter in support of those who serve in law enforcement.
