Lindsay Guerra was never one for traditional sports. But when the Oconomowoc resident and Kettle Moraine High School graduate reached her teen years, something new sparked her interest. "I was not by any means an athletic child," Guerra said. "My teenage years were kind of rough. I think it was sixth grade when they took you in the weight room for the first time. I couldn't do any of the ball sports, and I couldn't run. But I was like, 'This I could do.' It was just something that was a natural fit for me. I have always strength trained in some way, shape or form basically from that time on."

Saier, a butcher, was grabbed from the corner of Capital Avenue and Kalamazoo Street. At the golf course, surrounded by men in white sheets, “he apologized with all the emotion of his terrified heart for the insult to the flag and for cursing the government which had given him freedom and protection all the years of his life,” the Journal wrote. They covered him with hot tar and feathers until he “looked like a … [Read more...] about A man was tarred and feathered on a Lansing golf course. It became part of this novel.
President Donald Trump continued his ongoing criticism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem with a series of tweets Friday morning. Trump wrote on Twitter that NFL players "are at it again" after multiple players kneeled, raised a fist or remained in the locker room during the pregame playing of The Star-Spangled Banner on Thursday night . He urged them to "be happy, be cool," and stand during the anthem. "A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest," Trump wrote in one tweet . "Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!" Contrary to Trump's claim that players receive most of the league's revenue, the terms of the most recent collective bargaining agreement cap the players' share of revenue at 48.5 percent. Trump has taken a deep and lasting interest in the … [Read more...] about Donald Trump to NFL players: ‘Be happy, be cool,’ and stand for national anthem
