  • Find fall fun in pumpkin patches, corn mazes

    Blink too long and the first-graders scattered throughout the farm, tossing hay in the air, climbing through tunnels, hand-pumping water and feeding goats, not to mention climbing through windows as parents and teachers attempted to keep the classes on task.

  • National Parks set scene for CENWISPEX show

    With so many scenic trails and area parks frequented by Portage County residents, it is no wonder that Stevens Point would be the location of the annual CENWISPEX event, which this year focuses on National Parks.

    The annual stamp show hosted by the Central Wisconsin Stamp Club will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Stevens Point Holiday Inn and Convention Center, 1000 Amber Ave., Stevens Point. Admission and parking are free, and the event is open to the public.

  • A first-of-its-kind event hopes to put some new fire into local and area artists – those new, emerging and even those who didn’t realize they have artistic ability in them.

    Fire Works will take place – the culminating event – from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at Whitefeather Organics, 2239 Sky View Road, Custer.

  • Barbershoppers’ 63rd Harvest Harmony set Oct. 1

  • Inaugural walk will raise funds for breast cancer screening for those in need

    Felicia Van Lysal’s medical diagnosis is “treatable, but not curable.” For the 37-year-old woman, that means her fate is determined. In this fact, there is not darkness, but rather light. There is hope.
