KENOSHA — Carthage senior point guard Stephanie Kuzmanic figures if you must play the second-ranked team in the country in just the second round of the NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament, you may as well do it on your home floor.
Kuzmanic did the heavy lifting in setting up just that scenario, scoring 25 points on an array of drives, pull-ups and 3-pointers and adding seven assists and five rebounds as Carthage knocked off St. Norbert, 60-51, in a first-round game at Tarble Arena on Friday night.
Winter continues to hold the Kenosha area in its icy grip. There are benefits to that, however.
Recently, downtown Kenosha was treated for the first time to a series of ice sculptures by local artist Max Zuleta, a renowned ice artist who has competed professionally all over the world.
The U.S. Department of Labor has been advocating a federal minimum wage of $10.10 per hour, and Sen. Bob. Wirch, D-Somers, is sponsoring legislation to raise the state’s minimum wage to $7.60 and index the rate to inflation.
Unfortunately there aren’t many indications that either proposal is going very far anytime soon. Both the federal minimum wage and the Wisconsin minimum wage are $7.25, and that’s probably where they are going to stay for a while. That’s much too low.
The Carthage College theater program will perform a world premiere play written by a prominent playwright and screenwriter, starting today.
“No Name” takes place in a Victorian-era society and focuses on a sheltered, well-to-do young English woman and her sister, who are thrown into poverty overnight by a distant relative who lays claim to their inheritance. Desperate to protect her family, the daring young Magdalene bands together with a shifty con-man and hatches an outrageous plot to reclaim her wealth.
