Winter coaches putting together a plan

There are no guarantees of competitions this winter.

No promises of scrimmages, games or postseasons.

When winter sports begin later this month, though, Middleton High School will give its teams the chance to practice.

Oh, things will look dramatically different than they have in the past. But the Cardinals’ various teams will do everything possible to prepare for a season they hope will come in time.

“Right now, we just have no idea what might happen with some of the restrictions inside Dane County,” boys basketball coach Kevin Bavery said. “So, we’ll do what we can and hope that things work out where we can have some type of season.

“All I know is that something is better than nothing. And right now, getting the kids back in the gym is progress.”

Here’s a look at each winter sports, when they’re scheduled to begin and what their “new normal” might look like.

Kenneth William Burns

MADISON–Kenneth William Burns, age 80, of Madison, passed away on Nov. 1, 2020, at Agrace HospiceCare, Fitchburg, after a hard-fought battle with multiple health issues. Ken was born on July 31, 1940, in Hollandale, the fifth of 12 siblings born to Joseph and Lucille (Broughton) Burns. Ken married his high school sweetheart, Mary Ryan, on Aug. 3, 1963. Together, they had one daughter, Colleen.

Ken attended grade school and high school in Hollandale. He was the owner/operator of Ken’s Bar in Madison for many years. Ken loved to tell good stories and loved to cause apprehension in his sisters, never quite knowing where the story would end. Having been raised by depression-era parents, he developed a reputation for being very frugal. One lunch patron at his bar offered to return a piece of meat he found in his soup because he did not want to be the guy who ate the only piece of meat in the whole pot of soup.

Newspaper Sponsors Takeout Takeover

MIDDLETON–The Middleton Cross Plains Times-Tribune will sponsor Takeout Takeover, two weeks of takeout specials offered by locally owned restaurants within the newspaper’s coverage area. 

The idea came about in October, when editor Michelle Phillips approached local organizations to discuss how to help restaurants, which are particularly hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I approached the City of Middleton, Downtown Middleton Business Association, Chamber of Commerce and Tourism department to get input on whether we could feasibly do a takeout week, and Takeout Takeover is the idea that came out of those conversations,” said Phillips.

The event will be held from Nov. 28- Dec. 12, and each participating restaurant will have the option of including a lunch special, dinner special and family dinner special with the price points of $15, $25 and $50, respectively. All of the meals will be takeout only.
