AROUND THE STATE:

EXCHANGE-SHARING COMMUNITY GARDEN
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — The tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini and other vegetables a group of local gardeners grow in their downtown Eau Claire plot are a sign not only of their affinity for quality food but of their caring for those without much access to healthy meals. Members of the shared garden, a part of the Forest Street Community Garden along that street, have donated hundreds of pounds of vegetables this summer to The Community Table, a nearby location that serves daily meals to those in need. Other gardeners at the site also have contributed food. By Julian Emerson, Leader-Telegram. SENT IN ADVANCE: 869 words, photos.
EXCHANGE-ENDURING DEPARTMENT STORE
TWO RIVERS, Wis. — When A.J. Schroeder and her sister, Theresa Kronforst, took over Schroeder’s Department Store it would have been easy, and perhaps less stressful, to shutter the doors of the longtime business. But Schroeder and Kronforst came up with a plan to allow the legacy of their great-grandfather and his three brothers to continue 127 years after the store’s doors opened downtown in Two Rivers. Their success comes as most downtown department stores in Wisconsin have closed and some of the biggest national retailers are contracting, have gone out of business or shuttered their brick-and-mortar operations in favor of online sales.

MADISON, Wis. — BYU will not be pushed around. Just ask No. 6 Wisconsin, one of the Big Ten’s top bullies. After a four-win season in 2017, the upset of the No. 6 Badgers provided quite a statement. By Genaro C. Armas. UPCOMING:: 500 words, photos by 3 p.m. CT.
