The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, Sept. 29. Racine County Eye staff writer Emma Widmar discussed various stories with TMJ4 anchors, Susan Kim and Ryan Jenkins, on the newscast.

This week’s segment kicked off chatting about Business Spotlight Create Cafe. The business specializes in making macarons and custom gifts. They will open their doors at the Midwest Market on Oct. 8. The mother and two daughters look forward to sharing their unique french cookies with Racine.

Next up, the team chatted about The Quilts on Barns Road Adventure. Motorists can travel through Racine County and view 28 barn quilts. The adventure takes off on Oct. 8. Maps are available at the Real Racine visitors center. Read more about this adventure on our website.

The Racine Roundup wrapped up with Widmar chatting about an unforgettable moment shared between the Racine Zoo’s lion, Azizi, and Bella Trevino, a 16-year-old with Autism.
