CONGRATS TO WAMI AWARD WINNERS!
Congratulations to our neighbors in NE Wisconsin who brought home the hardware at the 2011
WAMI Awards this past weekend. Pictured here is WAMI Awards co-host Len Nelson, who showed his indignation that Best Polka Artist was a non-presented category this year by bringing
some polka to the show anyway. One online reviewer called it "Mildly amusing."
