Gabriella Rusk Madison WMTV

Though it’s one of the country’s oldest sports, lacrosse-only began taking shape in Wisconsin in the early 2000s. In 2001, the Madison Area Lacrosse Association, now known at Badgerland Lacrosse, formed with only a handful of interested teams.

Since then the club sport has nearly tripled in size and expanded to include teams in La Crosse and Watertown. Sun Prairie is one of those club teams with four different age groups ranging from U8 to U14. “It’s a very fast-paced sport,” said Karen Dwyer, president of the Sun Prairie Lacrosse Club, “It’s one of my favorite sports to watch and it kind of combines, soccer, football, and hockey.”

Her son, Cole Dwyer, and his teammate Jackson Jerszak both started playing in 2nd grade. “I’ve tried a lot of sports but none have really stuck with me as lacrosse has,” said Cole Dwyer. Jerzak says he sometimes has to explain the sport to his other friends in his sixth-grade class.

Gabriella Rusk Spring Rain Delays Strawberry Planting Season

Article by Gabriella Rusk;

This summer’s crop of strawberries is one of the best Carandale Fruit Farm has ever seen.

“This is the best season we’ve had in a very long time,” said owner and operator of Carandale Farms Cory Secher. “They are all big and beautiful and full of flavor.”

Secher says the spring rains kept him on his toes and delayed strawberry picking season by over a week.

“The rain has been very tough but right where we’re sitting we’ve been very lucky,” Secher said. “We were not open for Father’s Day which was tough because a lot of people have a tradition.”

While the rain didn’t affect the picking season too seriously, Secher said planting is a different story.

“The toughest part for us is planting our new strawberries for next year’s production because we’re a month late,” he said. “The latest planting in 50 years because of the rain.”

Still, many families are taking advantage of this summer’s strawberries while they can.

Allison Statz drove out to Carandale Farms from Westport.

“We just had the day off and it’s actually not raining for once,” Statz said. “There’s no reason not to come out and get some strawberries.”

Gabriella Rusk Holocaust

Alan Morawiec has spent nearly 20 years sharing his father’s Holocaust survival story.

“I promised my dad that people won’t forget him and people won’t forget the story,” said Morawiec. The new Technology Education Facilitator at Richland Middle School comes from Colorado where he’s spent about 35 years teaching. In the early 2000s, Morawiec started The Holocaust Shoe Project.

“Almost 44,000 pairs of shoes later, all of the shoes have been given away to those in need,” he said. All during Holocaust Remembrance Week, students have collected new and gently used shoes to donate to a local women’s shelter.

Morawiec wanted to make a service project part of his presentations. The shoes seemed like a perfect fit because of the piles of shoes left behind from those in concentration camps.

“They were told to remove all their clothing, including their shoes,” said Morawiec. “They went into the shower room and the door not only closed behind them, the door locked behind them.” So far in the first year for the shoe drive, Richland Center students have collected over 200 pairs and counting.
