On Volunteering for Agrace HospiceCare provides meaningful opportunities
Len Gersmehl was my teacher in St Paul's Lutheran School in Janesville for grades 3 and 4. His father was also my teacher in grade2. Len was a joy to have as a teacher and friend. He organized the school to sell Christmas and greeting cards to help raise money. He gave the students a share of the funds to help motivate them for more sales. We also sold a lot of gift wrap paper. His daughter Anna Beth was in my class also.
Len was the basketball coach for more years than I can remember. The gymnasium at St Paul's Lutheran is named after him.
Len also played the organ in church for Sunday services and also for funerals, weddings, etc. I was always amazed at how easy he made it look to play beautiful music.
It is because of Len's undying love of God that he taught us to have a relationship with Jesus that is still with me today. St Paul's was, and still is, a wonderful place to learn and worship.
God's blessings always Len, and many more wonderful years. Your old student, John Blint
On Does passage lead from Rock River to Tallman House?
Hi, For many years, I was the Treasurer for the Tallman House in its early years as a historical society. There is a secret tunnel that was used to bring slaves into the Tallman House from the Rock River as they made their way North to freedom. I personally saw the tunnel. The Tallmans supported President Lincoln - who also slept at the Tallman House.
The Underground Railroad helped slaves to find freedom in the North. You can read more about it at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground...

Yes, good old Geri's - spent lots of buck-a-roos there in the 1970's and 80's.
Does anyone remember the old Alpine Restaurant, formerly known as the Knotty Pine Restaurant on downtown Milwaukee Street (near Helgesen building)? I know they moved to Creston Park and then burned down? I always craved their fudge pie. I usually ordered 2 pieces because I lived out of town.
Does anyone have their recipe for fudge pie? If you send it to me, I promise to send you a free ebook with tons of great grill recipes.
You can send the recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be eternally grateful -- and probably a lot fatter after getting that fudge pie recipe!

On Former judge remembered for fairness, longevity
Mark Farnum was a very fair and impartial judge who always listened to all side of a case.
I had the opportunity to be in his court when he heard a case I filed against another Rock County attorney for a grave infraction of the law.
Mark listened to all side fairly and made his decision based on the facts, not on friendships.
That is the mark of an honorable man!
From a long-time Rock County resident.
On Case Feed demolished
My parents, both dead now, used to live and work in that building when the first floor was Swanson Grocery Store. Sad to see it go....
On St. Paul’s donates school supplies to elementary students
More people should have this charitable spirit and help others in need in these tough times.
I attended St Paul's Lutheran School grades 1 thru 8 at the old McKinley street school building. Lots of great memories... The teachers were wonderful, and I learned a lot of "life lessons" and spiritual development that helped me thru some tough times life threw my way later on....
God's Blessings to all of you!!!
On Is Mary the mother of all moms?
I have prayed and asked Mama Mary, our Mother of Perpetual Help, for many things. All of my prayers have been granted thru Jesus. She is in my thoughts every day...
I love Mary and God very much, and hope you can learn to love them also. Your life will be better with more happiness, joy, peace, and love.
