Sturgeon Bay Grad Sean Zak Writing at the Home of Golf

The work-from-home trend gave Sean Zak a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make his dream job even more magical. Five years ago, the former three-sport athlete from Sturgeon Bay made his UW-Madison journalism peers and golf-addict roommate jealous when he landed a full-time position at GOLF Magazine. At first, his chores included writing captions and filling other “nooks and crannies” for the magazine, but that grew to pumping in content for GOLF.com.

Fyr Bal Returned With a Bang

After a two-year hiatus, the 56th annual Fyr Bal Festival was held June 18: a beautiful, sunny day to celebrate the start of summer on the shore of Eagle Harbor. The day held festivities for all ages, including the Fur Bal pet parade, which had about 30 furry participants; and – new this year – the make-your-own flower crown activity, which drew many attendees into the Ephraim Village Hall.

Hip, Hip, Hooray for the Small-town Parade

I love a good small-town parade. The excitement, the community pride, the creativity and the DIY aspects of building a float, not to mention the many different ways to participate. During my lifetime, I’ve experienced parades from several vantage points – seated in the crowd, marching with my high school pep band, and riding along the route in the back of a car or atop a float. Each experience has offered a fresh perspective and equal amounts of fun.
