On the weekly show, "Education Matters", broadcast on WGTD-FM in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Steve Brown interviews Robert Weatherwax, the third generation of family who owned & trained "Lassie". You can listen to it here.

We came upon this book about the rich history of Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin and discovered the story of how the resort owners sponsored several Japanese-American families out of the Minidoka internment camp during World War II and brought them to Lake Lawn. There are many other such stories in this delightful little book. If instead of reading about the more grand stories of international war and power struggles and enjoy learning the "smaller" history of local life, this book is for you. AND...it is a quick read and has lots of pictures!
World War II is still yielding great stories about all the efforts that were parts of defeating the Axis Powers. Our radio show, “The Enigma Covenant”, describes in docu-drama fashion the top secret work of breaking the German codes, intercepting messages, and turning that information into weapons against the Nazis. A forty-five minute show, though, only skims the surface of this amazing story. To learn more about Enigma, Alan Turing, the Bombe, Bletchley Park, and more, check out these recommendations available on Amazon.com.
