Warrant issued in Roscoe banner scam case

ROSCOE – Roscoe police are on the lookout for an Illinois man who they say scammed local businesses out of money for banner advertising that never was delivered.

ROSCOE -- Alex Tyms Jr., Scout executive of the Glacier’s Edge Council, says area troops continue to grow despite the controversy over the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow openly gay adults as Scout leaders.

Glacier’s Edge membership has increased by 4 percent during the past year, which includes Cub Scout troops, Boy Scout troops, Venture troops and Explorers groups, Tyms said.

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in December ended its relationship with the Boy Scouts over the change in policy.

Tackling the winter trails on fat tire bikes

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY --  If you’ve been looking past the couch lately for your lost New Year's resolution about getting in shape, you’re not alone.

Equally adding to the misery for those in the Midwest is the bone-chilling, snow-laden landscape we face each winter.

One of your best bets for braving the outdoors while getting some exercise may be a bicycle.

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.
