We found a restaurant with some outside seating, so Dave Stone was going to join Bob, Terry and I for Saturday morning breakfast at Piccadilly Lily at the Lone Rock Airport. Bob cancelled after a long trip last week, so Terry and I took off for Lone Rock at about 7:15 that morning. We arrived there in about a half hour and the place looked vacant. Their website had shown they opened at 6:00 a.m. and their FACEBOOK page didn't say any different, but nobody was around and the place was dark. I had read a story about their struggles a few weeks back in the State Journal so that's why we had decided to go there in support of them. I called Dave Stone, who was coming from Verona/Middleton way and caught him in Spring Green. I told him to meet us at The General Store in Spring Green because they also had told of outside seating on their website. Terry and I headed there to meet him. We ordered inside and then went outside. They texted us when our food was ready to pick up and take outside to our table. We each had peach pancakes with blueberries or walnuts (see above photo - not exactly what we had, ours were thinner and larger). They were very good and we were all filled up when we left - two pancakes without any meat was just right - with meat one would've done it!

Don't forget - the Dodgeville  Chamber of Commerce is holding a Men's Slowpitch Softball Tournament the 28th-30th of August at Harris Park on Dodgeville's northeast side. They have some pretty healthy payouts for the top three placings! They could use more teams. Beth (and company) is looking for volunteers to help out with the fields, concessions, scorekeeping, etc. and umpiring (some). Without being able to hold the Grilled Cheese Championships in April and DodgeFest in August, the chamber needs a fundraiser (or two) badly to help supplement the dues that goes to play expenses and payroll! Hopefully the community (and area) rises to help this event out and spend some time there supporting the concession stand! Contact Beth @ 608-935-9200 for more information or to volunteer.

I'm still a proponent of all servers or anyone waiting on someone wearing a face covering. I know it's an inconvenience for people, but for health sakes and because it's now a requirement, it's the right thing to do!

We're in need of some writing (coverage) help at the Chronicle. If you have a desire to do some part-time writing (coverage) take a look at the ad we've posted on line and in the newspaper. It could add a little income to someone who is already working elsewhere, but has a writing knack and always wanted to explore it!

The Iowa County Fair is a go over Labor Day weekend with the youth being featured this year as they showcase their animals. Admission is free, but donations are accepted to help offset expenses. There will not be a Midway or a lot of the vendors either. Their will be animal showing and auction. The fair is later this year as is Laor Day (Monday, September 7).

The SWC approved holding high school fall sports this year for the schools in the conference. That means you will be able to enjoy football, cross country, volleyball and soccer soon!
