WHITEWATER — Derek Byrne and Paddygrass, Irish musicians and dancers from around Wisconsin, kick off a new season of performing arts Sept. 20 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater’s Young Auditorium.
The Tuesday hike report by Marvin Herman: Eleven regular Tuesday hikers did a quick walk around Lake La Grange in the reverse direction of that which we usually do, starting at the gate and ending at the Ice Age Trail toward the trailhead of the Blackhawk Segment. The weather grew gradually warmer as we walked, but we finished in just over an hour. The distance is just under three miles. No one seemed to notice any particular flowers but I did see lots of goldenrod turning from green to bright yellow and some rough blazing star in flower growing among the long grasses.
