On Wisconsin
Thursday, October 7, 2010

It's homecoming week at the University of Wisconsin. For the past 100 years one song has roused the passion of Wisconsin Badger fans more than any other... and to think it almost became a Minnesota fan favorite. This year homecoming pits Wisconsin against Minnesota and to honor this showdown videographer Chuck France captures the history of this fight song. While the song is in the public domain here in the United States... Michael Jackson's estate owns the international rights to "On Wisconsin."

St. Peter's Dome
Thursday, October 7, 2010

Some have called Morgan Falls the prettiest waterfall in all of Wisconsin and one of our loyal viewers thought it was worth exploring. In Wisconsin Reporter Jo Garrett and Videographer Frank Boll found the falls nestled in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. They hiked above the falls where the trail turns more treacherous and reached the 1,565 foot summit of St. Peter's Dome. This state natural area is located at the west end of the Penoke Range which formed some 1.8 billion years ago. On a clear day you can see Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands and enjoy the changing tapestry of falls splendor.

Frank Lloyd Wright Restoration

Mike Lilek heads up a house restoration project on Milwaukee’s south side.  Lilek is a member of a group called the ‘Frank Lloyd Wright Wisconsin Heritage Tourism Program’.  The group bought this house--built in 1916-- because it’s a very rare example of one of Wright’s American System-Built Homes.  These designs were Wright’s way of making architect-designed houses affordable for the working class.  In Wisconsin’s Liz Koerner takes you inside to find out what’s next for this unique home.
