Tidbits: Interesting Places in the Midwest

From the Jan. 9-15, 2011 American Profile magazine.

OHIO-- The nation's oldest continuously operated manufacturer of snow fences is Kalinich Fence Co. established in 1905 in STRONGVILLE (pop. 43,858). A third generation of the Kalinich family runs the company.

Just in time for the snow.

WISCONSIN-- Whether the Badger football team wins or loses, thousands of University of Wisconsin fans stick around for the Fifth Quarter postgame show by the marching band in Madison.

This is a tradition dating back to 1977. And the Badgers have been winning lots of games these days.
