From the it-was-just-a-matter-of-time department: Nick Symmonds, a track athlete hoping to make the Olympics again, is auctioning off nine inches of ad space on his right shoulder.
According to the listing he posted on eBay earlier this week, the space is available for the remainder of the 2016 track season, including the Rio de Janeiro Olympics this summer if he qualifies.

LAUREL – To Gorman & Co. Inc., for continuing its push to redevelop the former Elks Club/Heritage House, 5706 Eighth Ave., into an 80-room boutique hotel. This project has moved slowly, to be sure. But a short-term lease agreement approved by the City Council this week gives Gorman the time it might need to secure another $850,000 development grant to aid in the $20 million project. While the future of this project may appear uncertain to outsiders, we feel Gorman — a developer with a proven track record elsewhere — wouldn’t continue investing resources into a venture that has a less-than-good chance to succeed. If it does, downtown Kenosha will be all the better for it.
