    These are all very commendable achievements this week but as I said before trying to vote for an athlete from various sports that have many different skill sets is not appropriate. There are plenty of games played in central Wisconsin to have multiple choices in the different sport categories. This current process is apples and oranges.

    Erin is a beautiful spirit, a very giving and kind young lady!
