The Bright Side

Halloween and Trick or Treating a week and a half away…10/31/2020, officially.
There’s no need to wait until then however because many different events are happening before the 31st. This Saturday, October 24th, Williams Bay Elementary School lot will be having a candy handout drive-thru from 10 a.m. through 12 p.m. and “trunk or treat” will also take place at the Lake Geneva Family YMCA from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. along Bigfoot High School in Walworth will also be from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. On October 28th Elkhorn High School will have its traditional community trick event at the school.

Most communities in the area will be having their trick or treating on Halloween Day. Lake Geneva is having it on Halloween, for the first time in a long time, and as the day falls on a Saturday, it will be from noon to 4 p.m. Happy Halloween!


Some small things that might count.
What happened this last week that might mean something to you? The BP gas station on Highway 50, right down there on the north side of the road just west of Walgreen was approved by the plan commission to renovate the entire structure and Subway sandwich shop inside. The Cove wants to change its roof color from green to blue. That seemingly meaningless decision could not be made by the plan commission so it was kicked up to the city council.

What’s wrong with blue? Nobody knows. The Harbor Shores complex got new air-conditioning units mounted on its roof. The crane was very dramatic. It is wondered by many why air conditioning units were installed before the winter instead of closer to the coming summer next year. There was no answer to that question. There will be no reindeer this year for the Christmas season. That’s the first time in a long time that Lake Geneva has failed to bring in the cute and lovable reindeer. The virus seems to be striking at so many things that might seem to be insulated, but prove not to be.

Mike Kocourek sold some of his prize downtown business properties this year but remains the very best business property owner in all of Lake Geneva, if not Southern Wisconsin. If you have to rent space then rent it from this man and his operation. You won’t be sorry, and the GSR does not recommend very many in the real estate field. Bruno Rizzo’s law firm on Broad Street is the best, not because they are all in the Clarence Darrow image but because they’ll take your case, big or small. They are a class act and almost single-handedly, were the ones behind forcing the University of Chicago to give up the Yerkes to a non-profit entity. They did that for free, or pro bono, as they say.
