Clam Lake News & EventsHistorical Snippets

WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

Emma Rechenberg is a morning anchor at KBJR 6 news. She and I began communicating about our shared love of Clam Lake. Her grandparents, Norm and Irene Rechenberg, had a cabin on Upper Clam Lake that she would come to as a child during the summer. This left her with many wonderful memories of times spent here. I knew her family and remember her uncles well. When they were children they would walk to town to play pinball and eat candy treats at our soda fountain. I can just see them walking down the road heading to town, with dimes for the pinball machine in their pockets. Good memories!

Upon learning that I was gathering Clam Lake’s history and would be featuring it in the new Museum being built in Glidden, she asked if she could come down and do a story. On Tuesday, December 19th, she did just that!

The story should air between the week of Christmas and New Year’s on the KBJR 6 morning news. So, as they say, “stay tuned…..”
