Coloring makes a comeback for adults

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Crayons and dolls are just part of the day for Bridget Sandoval, a Delavan mother of three, whose youngest child is 4 years old.

“I’ve told people over the years that I decided to be a stay-at-home mom because it gives me an excuse to play with Barbies,” she said, laughing.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Spectators at the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Competition will have a little bit more breathing room this year.

The snow sculpting competition, set for Wednesday through Saturday, will be held at two locations this year, the Dreihaus Plaza in front of the Riviera and at Flat Iron Park.

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.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- The $3 million residence for sale on South Shore Drive in Delavan is a 10,000-square foot house with 120 feet of frontage along Delavan Lake.

The home features six fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, first- and second-floor laundry rooms, a billiard room, theater room, wet bar, full beauty salon, a great room with soaring ceilings and an exercise room just off the first floor master bedroom suite.

There is a separate, 300-square-foot enclosed screened porch overlooking the lake, an attached three-car and a detached two-car garage as well as a boat shed. There’s even an optional gatehouse -- designed by Frank Lloyd Wright -- available for an additional $260,000.

The home was once part of a large estate owned by the late Edward Brennan, who was the CEO of Sears, Roebuck and Co. Brennan is just one in a long list of tycoons, business magnates and families with names like Borg or Wrigley who have been drawn to lakeside summer homes in the Delavan and Lake Geneva areas for more than 100 years.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- A local mother and a group of like-minded citizens are ready to move forward with a proposed all-inclusive playground in Veterans Park. Dusti Ocampo, 35, didn’t set out to be an activist, however, she does have one good reason to push for the park -- her 16-year-old special needs daughter, Kameron.

Ocampo, who was instrumental in obtaining similar playground equipment at Wheatland School, said there is a genuine need for such a facility in Walworth County.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- The sturdy table in a workroom at Heritage Beam and Board -- like all of the furniture crafted there -- once had another, totally different life. Its weathered wood was part of a barn in Zenda, Wisconsin. 

Heritage’s owners say their repurposed wood furniture and décor represent something more consumers are looking for these days -- a unique piece that wasn’t mass-produced in a factory overseas.

Walworth County Sunday's 2015 year in review

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Sometimes it seems like the days take forever, but the months fly by.   

   In a year that seemed to pass in the blink of an eye, some of the most notable stories of 2015 clearly illustrated how quickly things can change in our communities.

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Dentistry is more than a profession for Dr. Ryan Braden -- it’s a family business. A University of Wisconsin-Madison alumnus like his dad, Dr. Mark Braden, Ryan Braden followed his father’s footsteps through Marquette University School of Dentistry in Milwaukee, and after he graduated in 2005, into his father’s practice, Braden Dental Center in Lake Geneva. Ryan Braden’s wife, Jaymie, also a dentist, joined the family practice last year. 

In October, he was sworn in as the youngest president of the 3,000-member Wisconsin Dental Association, an organization he’s been active in for a decade.

Snowmobilers are ready to ride

WALWORTH COUNTY SUNDAY -- Snowmobile riders have been looking to the sky hoping for snow during an unseasonably warm December.

But when the snow comes, snowmobile clubs anticipate a new law will help increase membership and promote snowmobiling in general.

Oh what a difference two years and a new speaker of the House make.

It was a October of 2013 when the government began a disastrous two-week shutdown after the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Democrat-controlled Senate were unable to come to a temporary spending agreement.
