Municipal Band back on stage

Directors Branden Mueller and Andrea Pannier will conduct the Plymouth Municipal Band Thursday, Aug. 1, starting at 7 pm, at Plymouth City Park.

“Simple Gifts - Four Shaker Songs,” was written in 2002 by Frank Ticheli, who was born in 1958 in Monroe, La. He is an American composer of concert band works.

“The High Barbaree - Four Traditional Sailing Songs,” was composed by Pierre La Plante. A lifelong student and teacher of music, he was born in West Allis and grew up in Sturgeon Bay. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin and an accomplished composer, his music has been performed world-wide by high school bands.

“The High Barbaree” is based on the songs that refer to the pirates who were the scourge of the Mediterranean during the 17th and 18th centuries.

Wisconsin aviation spotlighted

Gov. Scott Walker has proclaimed July 29 to Aug. 4 as Wisconsin Aviation Week. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin (TDA) are teaming up to promote, educate and celebrate the state’s aviation industry.

“Wisconsin’s airport system plays a vital role in the state’s transportation network,” said Department of Transportation Secretary Mark Gottlieb. “It responsibly and effectively meets business, passenger, freight and recreational air transportation needs all around the state.”

In 2012, nearly 5.5 million people boarded commercial flights in Wisconsin. In addition, more than 107 million pounds of cargo was transported by air last year.

“The aviation industry links our state’s residents and workers to larger national and global economies,” said Transportation Development Association of Wisconsin Executive Director Craig Thompson. “Businesses recognize the state’s aviation network is crucial to remain competitive in today’s ever-changing marketplace.”

Wisconsin’s aviation system includes more than 730 landing facilities – 133 of which are public-use airports. Approximately 70 percent of general aviation operations are business-related; while the other 30 percent is recreational.

“Public safety is always a top priority,” added Secretary Gottlieb. “In 2012, more than $113 million in federal and state funds supported 86 airport improvement projects around Wisconsin.”

Aviation Week coincides with EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. More than half a million people from more than 60 countries attend the sevenday event at Wittman Regional Airport – celebrating the past, present and future in the world of flight.

Sartori takes top honors at Fair

Sartori Cheese has been presented with five awards, including two first place finishes, at the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair Cheese and Butter Contest.

One of the nation’s most competitive and prestigious regional cheese competitions, the contest included nearly 300 of the Dairy State’s best cheeses.

Coming in on top was Sartori’s Classic Asiago cheese. This victory for Sartori Classic Asiago comes on the heels of the 2013 U.S. Championship Cheese Contest in March where it’s older cousin, Extra Aged Asiago, was named Best Asiago in the United States.

Also taking home first place was Sartori’s Espresso BellaVitano. An internationally award-winning cheese recognized for its innovative spirit, Espresso BellaVitano features a smoky coffee rind that compliments the sweet, tangy flavors of BellaVitano cheese.

Finally, the artisan cheesemaker won three additional awards including a second place finish for both Limited Edition Pastorale Blend and Chai BellaVitano and a third place finish for Balsamic BellaVitano.

“It is a great honor to be recognized at the State Fair across a variety of our handcrafted cheese,” Jim Sartori, CEO, said in a press release announcing the awards. “Winning with a range of cheese from traditional flavors like Classic Asiago to our originals like the BellaVitanos and the mixed milk Pastorale Blend is a humbling experience and a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team.”
