A mile a day keeps the holiday pounds away


From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, most of us find ourselves running non-stop: Running to craft shows to catch unique holiday gifts, running home to make that side dish for Cousin Bob’s party, running back out because we forgot the eggnog.

For some people, however, running takes on its more traditional meaning: Running and jogging to staying in shape to offset trips to the treat table throughout the holidays.

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas


Almost as common as the Christmas tree, the wreath is a tell-tale sign that the holiday season has arrived. But before front doors donned this classic holiday decoration, wreaths were used centuries ago for a variety of occasions. That ancient trend is returning, with a more modern twist, as people find new ways to make and display wreaths inside and outside the Christmas season.

One popular trend is multi-seasonal wreaths, said Cathy Setiz, garden center manager at Breezy Hill Nursery in Salem. These wreaths can transition from one season and celebration to the next with just a few modifications.

Homeless shelter site is a good one

Here’s a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving Day: Kenosha is this close to establishing a viable homeless shelter.

The political hurdle that remains is a vote in the Kenosha City Council on Monday. The Shalom Center’s plan to convert the vacant storefront at 6201 14th Ave. into a homeless shelter needs the City Council’s approval, and we think the members of the council should give that approval enthusiastically.

This weekend, ‘Anything Goes’


Westosha Central High School is presenting the 1930s-era inspired musical “Anything Goes” this weekend. Central senior Jaymes Gayhart plays stockbroker stowaway Billy Crocker.

“This is an absolute blast. Honestly, this is the most fun I have had at a school activity,” Gayhart said.
