In the 10 or so years that I've known Steve Palec - as a friend, associate and corporate real estate broker - I thought I knew all his stories. Nope, there are many more. His new memoir, "In Awe," drops on Dec. 2.
The Wisconsin State Fair is Aug. 2-12, and while that means entertainment, jobs, rides, competition, animals and various other aspects of summer, to me, it means FOOD. Here's some thoughts on the new choices this year, announced this week.
For the first time, members of the 1996 Packers team that won Super Bowl XXXI will get together for a reunion party. They'll celebrate with each other and Green Bay fans at Great Lakes Dragaway on Sept. 2, during the annual Time Machine Nationals event over Labor Day weekend.
The 2017 Sporkies competition, held this morning at the Wisconsin State Fair, was a gut-busting barrel of fun, with eight creations competing for the coveted Golden Spork Award. And Albanese's came out on top with its Spaghetti and Meatballs Mozzarella Sticks.
The Memorial Weekend Classic returns to Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove next weekend. The event will include the standard races as well as a free kids' carnival called "Leroy Butler Day at the Races" on Sunday.

LeRoy Butler first connected with Green Bay Packers fans when he slipped on the green and gold back in 1990.

Green Bay Packers Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer LeRoy Butler is making an appearance Saturday at the Great Lakes Dragaway to promote his grass roots approach to anti-bullying.
