Sad Days in Wisconsin

Several weeks ago I posted about a show that I was in called Art in the Square. This annual event takes place just as Fall is beginning to turn the northwoods into a beautiful showpiece. Crandon, WI is the host town for this event. It is a small town, with a quaint, old, brick building-lined downtown area. You may have seen the latest news on Crandon - it's been on the local & national news this week.

The people of Crandon are trying to come to grips with the fact that one of their off-duty police officers shot and killed 6 young people from their community. The police officer was only 20 himself. He was later gunned down and killed as well. It's hard to imagine. I live about 30 miles from Crandon and we feel pretty isolated, sheltered & safe here. The communities are pretty tight knit and while I do not know any of the families directly involved, I do know many families from Crandon. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims and the many friends throughout the community.

Hi Cathy!

I did see this story on the news, so sad! It's so hard when it really is so close to home...
