The Blackhawk boys golf season disappointedly came to an end at the Prairie du Chien Sectional on Tuesday for James Reilly when he missed going on to State by one stroke. James was the only Hawk player that had moved on from Regionals last week but just couldn’t find his A game on the Prairie du Chien Country Club course, shooting an 84. James had early struggles on the front nine but as hard as he tried he just couldn’t overcome them on the back to reach his goal of playing in the State Tournament.

Local log house opens to public with French-Canadian, 4th Ward exhibits


The St. Germain dit Gauthier house, built in 1820, and restored 200 years later, is a new historical point of interest in Prairie du Chien, which depicts French-Canadian hewn log construction of two centuries ago. The site, opening this weekend, will display exhibits that share the history of the home, of other similar homes in the community, the Main Village 4th Ward and floods there. (Photos by Correne Martin)

The St. Germain dit Gauthier house on St. Feriole Island consists of an original 1820 log house structure (walls and beams) with some windows and second story floor that are native to the house. It’s decorated with many French-Canadian period pieces, and the Prairie du Chien Historical Society has more on its wish list.

The St. Germain dit Gauthier-Coorough House will open to the public June 12-13 with French-Canadian music, dance, and workshops. The two-day event will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, with a formal ribbon-cutting by the Prairie du Chien Chamber of Commerce. Visitors will then be invited to tour the newly-restored house and participate in entertainment and food.

On Memorial Day, a local Gold Star mother was presented with flowers in memory of her son who died in the Vietnam War.

Lance Corporal Gary Walz was only 21 years old when he was shot on the ground in the province of Quang Nam on May 12, 1969. According to his sister, Melody Igou, Gary was placed on a medical ship, where he later died from his injuries. 

That was 52 years ago.
