  • Happy 70th to the Players

    “There’s no business like show business!” “Two planks, a board, and a passion!” “The show must go on!” No other art form has traditions like those of the theatre. The stories are legion of how, in the midst of impossible conditions, the curtain always goes up. Actors tease that if they don’t show up for […]

  • Fore the Cause

    Beautiful golf courses are a part of Door County’s landscape. There are 153 holes to be played at any given time during the season with more being built all the time and, on a good day, there are people playing on most of them. Golf has become a huge business since Tiger took center stage […]

  • Fall Golf

    As the sun begins its angled dip into the southern sky and the county recoils from its congested towns and frantic pace, a new season with an entirely different feel descends upon the peninsula. Northern Wisconsin has long been known for its -annual display of outstanding fall colors. October weekends swell with families fully aware […]

  • Putting Practice

    Now that summer is in full swing, it’s a great time to evaluate areas of your golfing game. After improving upon my long game this season (which was my goal), it has become clear that the best place for me to shave digits from my handicap is on the greens. Too many three-putts have left […]

    Note by Note: The County Comes Alive with Music

    Listen to the music. From folk to classical, from blues to jazz, from ethnic to rock, someone someplace is playing it right now in Door County. Join me on a wander down the peninsula’s sheet music page and discover the heart of this community. Perhaps the two most recognized theater groups in Door County are […]

    A Major Just Down the Shore

    For anyone who loves golfing in Wisconsin, this is going to be a special year. As host of the 2004 PGA Championship, Whistling Straits in Kohler is close enough to the Door Peninsula to be considered “just down the shore.” The event will bring with it the finest tour players, roughly 300,000 spectators, an estimated […]

    Fyr Bal: 50 Years of Celebration in Ephraim

    Each year on the weekend closest to the summer solstice, the Village of Ephraim undergoes a transformation. Normally a tranquil lakeside community, known for its pastoral atmosphere and deep sense of history, during this weekend the village unfolds into a flurry of activity for ‘Fyr Bal’—one of Door County’s best known, if least understood, cultural […]

  • Good Golf Gifting

    The holiday season is approaching and for many golf enthusiasts, there is no better gift than one that will make for an enjoyable 2004 season.  There’s never a shortage of gift ideas for golfers, but the real question is what will put a smile on the face of that special someone on your list. We […]

  • Any Way You Slice It

    The PGA states that 90% of golfers have a slice. Congratulations if you are one of the lucky minority. For the rest of us, there is hope. With a little understanding and practice, a slice can be corrected. A true slice ball starts off to the left of the intended line of shot and then […]

  • In Stride: A runner keeps pace with the peninsula’s terrain

    I consider myself a fortunate person to be able to witness the dawn of a new day on the peninsula from 75 feet above Eagle Bluff in almost total silence. While getting up at 5:30 in the morning to go for a run isn’t for everyone, the serenity infused by the view from Eagle Tower […]

  • Composing a Dream: Wence and Sandra Martinez

    The universe pulls us from all directions. From our past, from our future, and from the moment. For Wence Martinez, a full-blooded Zapotec Indian, the pull began two thousand years ago when villagers from Teotitlan began to weave, and continues today at his gallery near Jacksonport, where he and his artist wife, Sandra, run Martinez […]

  • Gold Driver, Golf, Door County

    Memory of a Swing

    Every year around this time, faced with another summer season of golf, I swear that I am going to take some lessons. Every year, June eventually passes without an appointment with a local golf pro. The same yearly excuse seems to be responsible for my failure to seek to some professional guidance: “I don’t want […]

  • A Potter’s Haven: The Tradition and Art of Pottery in Door County

    Ask anyone who’s been to a pottery studio in Door County and they will probably tell you two things about their experience. First, they’ll tell you that making pottery is more complicated than one might think. It requires dexterity, skill, and an intimate knowledge of clay and glaze combinations, firing techniques, science and art. The […]

    Trapped & Rescued

    The pictorial effects and unanswered questions emanating from Pamela Murphy’s paintings suggest she should be in New York, Chicago or Los Angeles. Instead art collectors from these cities purchase her work while visiting Door County, knowing they have discovered an artist whose work extends past the county’s landscapes to suggest something more familiar. It is […]

    Bartender – Northern Grill, Sister Bay He is a bartender named Eric. His service is far, far from barbaric. When you pull up a chair, he’ll be glad you are there. With a smile and perhaps a wink He serves up each frosty drink. If you find your way and you have your will Satisfy it […]
