One of the best things about summer each year is all the outdoor music you can find in this area.
And, as always, there are plenty of big-name performers coming this summer: Paul McCartney. Pitbull. Tim McGraw. Lollapalooza.
It’s a bit of bad timing for “X-Men: Apocalypse” coming third in this summer’s superhero lineup.
Director Bryan Singer invigorates his latest X-Men film with vintage 1980s charm in an origin story about how the mutant supergroup unites and divides in response to the villain Apocalypse. And while battles between heroes are an X-Men tradition, warring among the ranks has become a superhero trope this season, at play in both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Captain America: Civil War.”
A note from Dave SaLoutos ends this way: “May all your days be circus days,” and he means it. The ringmaster for Circus World just introduced another performance season in Baraboo.
No other Wisconsin city maintains a richer circus history than Baraboo, and now the city of 12,000 is undergoing a significant renaissance.
Rock Lake is a 53-acre jewel in western Kenosha County. It doesn’t have much in common with Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes, but there is this: Both have suffered blue-green algae blooms.
Lake Erie’s problems with blue-green algae in recent summers are famous. In 2014 about 400,000 people in Ohio and southeastern Michigan were unable to use their tapwater for two days because of a blue-green algae bloom.
