Fall is the time to visit Hafs Road Orchard.

2020 marks Hafs Road Orchard’s 27th year of growing the Honeycrisp variety of apples. Their first Honeycrisp were planted in 1992, 60 trees as a trial. In the next several years customer enthusiasm and a buzz in the apple grower community convinced Hafs Road Orchard owners Richard and Deborah Polansky to dive in. They went on Honeycrisp tours, talked with fellow growers and now grow over 1,000 Honeycrisp trees. In spring 2015, Hafs Road Orchard planted 400 new Honeycrisp trees.

The orchard store is bursting with fresh apples for eating, cakes, pies, apple sauce, salads and crisps. Please feel free to call (262) 279-3638 to check on quantities of your favorite varieties. Be sure to pick up some fresh apple cider and don’t forget the orchard’s handmade Honeycrisp caramel apples.

The orchard also has a fantastic selection of gourds and pumpkins.

This year Hafs Road Orchard has opened a new out of doors selling area.

Hafs Road Orchard is open through Thanksgiving. Check here for hours.

Honeycrisp are a delicious healthy holiday gift.

Hafs Road Orchard is conveniently located just 7 miles east of Lake Geneva at W632 Hafs Road, Genoa City.

National Guard to conduct free COVID-19 testing in Kenosha Oct. 2, 3, 5 & 6

Free COVID-19 testing by the National Guard is coming back to Kenosha County starting later this week.

Here’s a news release from the county Joint Information Center:

The Wisconsin National Guard will conduct free, drive-thru COVID-19 testing this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2 and 3, and Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 5 and 6, at the Kenosha County Job Center.

Testing will be offered from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on each of these days. No appointment and no symptoms are needed.

The Job Center is located at 8600 Sheridan Road, Kenosha.

This testing is open to all who live or work in Wisconsin, ages 5 and up. Testing will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis, with results expected within seven days. Online preregistration is recommended at https://register.covidconnect.wi.gov.

“This is our first National Guard testing opportunity in Kenosha County since early August, and it comes at a good time — with schools now in session and an unfortunate, recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in our county and state,” said Kenosha County Health Officer Dr. Jen Freiheit. “I encourage people to take advantage of this, and to also remember to get the seasonal flu vaccine. Protecting ourselves against the ‘regular’ flu will help allow our hospitals and health care professionals to focus on caring for COVID-19 patients.”

Freiheit said local businesses are welcome to send their employees through the testing site, and entire families can come and get tested at the same time.

Those who are tested should remain quarantined at home until test results are returned if they have been in close contact with a COVID-19-positive individual.

Other testing opportunities remain available in and around Kenosha County, although most or all sites require an appointment. A frequently updated list of sites is available at https://www.kenoshacounty.org/2058/COVID-19-Testing-Locations.

Together, we can and will slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Trevor-Wilmot School 7th & 8th graders to move to learning from home after positive COVID-19 test result

Trevor-Wilmot School 7th and 8th grade students and homeroom teachers will be moved to at home learning after a school staff member tested positive for COVID-19, the school announced Monday on social media.

Students in grades K4-6th grade who have siblings in those grades do not have to quarantine at this time and should still report to school.  

All students and staff are expected to return to in-person learning at the school on Thursday, Oct.8.

Following is the school’s full statement:

Today we received notification from the Kenosha County Health Department that a staff member received a COVID-19 test with a result of Abnormal/Positive.  Because of those results, we are taking the following steps to ensure that all  students and staff are following recommendations from the Kenosha Health Department to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.  We appreciate their partnership as we continue to work through this pandemic together.   We are sharing the following information with all of our families so that we can keep everyone informed.  We have planned for cases of COVID in our building and appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility as we implement our Learning from Home plans.  

All 7th grade students and homeroom teachers are being moved to Learning at Home and asked to Self-Quarantine effective September 29, 2020.   

Self-Quarantine means that:

  • Your child must stay out of the public and stay home
  • Your child must not attend social gatherings or sports events, including both indoor and outdoor activities
  • Do not use public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis
  • Do not travel, even within the local community
  • Advise your child to wash their hands often and practice good hygiene
  • Postpone all non-essential medical appointments until your child is out of quarantine. Notify your child’s healthcare provider of your child’s exposure to COVID-19 to determine how the healthcare provider would like to proceed
  • Your child should minimize contact with others in the home and, when possible, stay in his/her own room and use his/her own bathroom.
  • Your child should not share personal household items such as dishes, towels, and bedding.

All 8th grade students will be moving to Learning at Home, due to the 8th grade homeroom teachers being asked to Self-Quarantine as they routinely collaborate with 7th grade homeroom teachers.   This has created a staffing shortage for our school.  All students and staff will be returning to our building on Thursday, October 8, 2020.   Students in grades K4-6th grade who have siblings in those grades do not have to quarantine at this time and should still report to school.  

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this situation, please do not hesitate to contact me or the Kenosha County Health Department at any time.  We continue to appreciate your cooperation as the success of this school year depends on all of us working together to ensure everyone’s safety.  

Michelle Garven, Ph.D.

2020 Salem Lakes Cleanup coverage (PHOTOS)

Crews were out picking up trash Saturday for the 8th Annual Salem Lakes Cleanup. About 37 volunteers traveled the roads around Salem Lakes, including Fox River Road, 83, SA, AH, and B. The cleanup usually happens in the Spring, but was delayed because of Covid-19. The influence of the pandemic was evident in the trash, since masks were part of the roadside debris some crews were picking up.  

The event stars at Fox River Park for donuts and coffee. Crews receive their assignments. Trash bags, gloves, and vests are provided.

Allen Dunski has organized these events. He collects donations of garbage bags, gloves, vests,  or anything they can use for it. There were also prizes. Jennifer Stephens won the women’s gift basket. Don Todd won the men’s gift basket. Kaylee Stoll won the children’s gift basket.

Because of the pandemic situation, the post clean-up cookout was cancelled this year.

Twin Lakes Fire Dept. to get new breathing & heart equipment

The Twin Lakes Fire Department will be receiving new self-contained breathing apparatus and heart monitors after action by the Twin Lakes Village Board Monday.

The new purchase will replace equipment that in some cases is as old as 20 years, said TLFD Chief Stan Clause Jr. at Monday’s regular Village Board meeting.

The equipment will cost a total of $176,400. Clause explained the fire department will be using a $75,000 donation made in honor of John Kjallander toward the purchase and the department also has obtained a trade-in of $30,000 for two heart monitors. That leaves $71,000 to come from village funds.

“Basically we’re going to match what you’re contributing,” village President Howard Skinner said to Clause.

The Village Board approved the purchase unanimously with Trustees Aron Karow and Sharon Bower absent.

The village will actually have to front $101,000 for the purchase until the trade-in money is received by the TLFD, which will turnover the funds to the village.
