I look forward to finding an issue of the County Line in my mailbox. Last week’s newspaper was especially interesting with Karen Parker’s account of Ontario’s new accommodations in the planning. Four new vacation cabins will be build on the former site of a hotel, which, in its day, attracted celebrities such as science fiction writer Stanley Weinbaum and his wife.They often stayed all summer, Weinbaum finding inspiration for his writings from wanderings through the Kickapoo Valley.
It’s good to read that Ontario continues to grow with an eye to a future built on the past.
Book reviews by Larry Ballwahn are also good reading, his selections a guide for books to check out from the Wilton Public Library. For a lively account of life in the Driftless area, I read Myrna Fauske’s South Side News, ending with her faith-based testimony.
Thanks to Editor Sarah Parker for a weekly look at hometown news close to home.
