A lasting impression

Mason donates entryway art

July 15, 2010
Joe Lisenby pulled his tape measure from his pocket and stretched it along the top of the nearly finished stone sign. He measured it again and then grabbed a piece of rounded concrete. With some help, he carefully placed it on top of nearly four tons of stones, brick and mortar already laid. Lisenby tapped his side down with his fist until it was perfect and then he repeated the process until the upper portion of Lake Geneva's new entry sign was complete. Lisenby is a stone artist master who enjoys the natural, historical and traditional ways of laying stones. Along with his employees from Moonlight Masonry, Lisenby has created another work of art on the west end of Library Park.

City officials consider increases

July 15, 2010
Some elected city officials believe parking in downtown Lake Geneva is maybe too inexpensive. Aldermen Frank Marsala and Todd Krause said it's typical to see at least $3 per hour parking in other tourist type of municipalities around the country. In Lake Geneva, parking currently is 50 cents per hour. "Personally, everywhere I go, it's $3 per hour parking," Krause said. "Here it seems awfully cheap and it's something to look at in the future."
