The Calumet County Fair is this weekend!

I will be at the fair on Friday from 6 - 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Merchant Building to meet with anyone who would like to voice their opinion on the issues of the day in Madison or just wants to stop by and say hello! I encourage everyone to attend the fair this weekend and enjoy the festivities.

The Calumet County Fair runs from Friday, August 30th to Monday, September 2nd. Friday Admission is free, Saturday and Sunday is $6.00 per person, Monday is $4.00 (Veterans receive free admission Monday with their Military ID).

 Staying Safe This Labor Day

The Labor Day weekend is a chance to get out and enjoy one last summer adventure before the school year begins and the weather turns cooler. Whether you are staying local or taking a trip, ReadyWisconsin encourages you to make safety a priority.

ReadyWisconsin offers the following advice:

  • Know before you go. For up-to-date information about traffic issues or road closures, visit www.511wi.gov. You can also download the free mobile app or follow @511WI on Twitter.
  • Leave at times that will allow you to avoid heavy traffic, such as before rush hour Friday or early Saturday morning. If you are returning home Monday morning, get on the road before late afternoon or after 10 p.m. to reduce traffic hassles. 
  • Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle with items such as a first-aid kit, bottled water, and energy bars. Have a car charger for your cell phone, in case you need to call for help. 
  • People and pets should never be left inside a parked car. Even with the windows cracked open, temperatures inside a vehicle can reach 100 degrees in less than 10 minutes on an average summer day.
  • If you are spending time outdoors, check the forecast before you head out and make sure you have a way to receive alerts about any approaching severe weather. Carry a portable weather radio or keep a weather app loaded on your cell phone.
  • If you are celebrating at home, remember to never leave a lit grill unattended and keep a fire extinguisher nearby. If you have been drinking, never get behind the wheel of a car.

For more safety tips, including how to build an emergency kit for your home and vehicles, visit ReadyWisconsin at https://readywisconsin.wi.gov. You can also follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/readywisconsin) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/readywisconsin).
