WEATHER FEATURE

In this photo from 2016, Dean Tawwater, owner of Tawwater Sign Co., and his brother Harold paint penguins on a mural on the back of Mike Bjorn’s, 5614 Sixth Ave.

Dear Kenosha,

Whereas Mike Bjorn was a true friend of Kenosha, especially downtown Kenosha;

Whereas Mike Bjorn was known as the “mayor of downtown” and was an advocate of the city as a whole;

Whereas Mike Bjorn was the unofficial ambassador of downtown;

I am hoping that the city fathers could see to honor this larger-than-life person.

A fitting honor would have the name of the portion of Sixth Avenue from 55th Street to 59th Place named Mike Bjorn’s Way.

To me this would be a fitting honor for a man who downtown will greatly miss.

Respectfully yours,

Al Bella

Kenosha
