Racine Roundup

The Racine Roundup aired on TMJ4 during the 4 O’Clock news on Thursday, Aug. 11.

Last week’s segment was brought to viewers by Steve Chamraz and Susan Kim from the Wisconsin State Fairgrounds. While Loren Lamoreaux and Emma Widmar were not present for this segment, the anchors from TMJ4 filled those tuning in about weekend events happening in Racine County.

The segment is available online.

However, this week, Racine County Eye editor Lamoreaux came to viewers live from the TMJ4 studio with special guest Sharon Pomaville, the Executive Director of The Sharing Center, based in western Kenosha County.

Ryan Jenkins and Susan Kim were the first to announce the start of the Racine County Eye’s Resource Spotlight series feature. The series will spotlight a resource making a difference in the local communities of Racine and Kenosha Counties.

The Sharing Center

As the first Resource Spotlight, Lamoreaux was able to explain the vital role that the nonprofit The Sharing Center plays in the community.

Pomaville addressed the various avenues they aim to address within the community from a food pantry to being a place to find helpful information on housing assistance, government programs, clothing resources, and so much more.

Not mentioned during the segment, but important to note, now in its 40th year, a celebration is set for Sept. 14. Join the Sharing Center’s “Road to the 40th” Celebration at Wilmot Mountain Resort’s Snow Tubing Hill.

Rotary in the Park

The Racine Founders Rotary Club will host the Third Annual Rotary in the Park from 3 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 12.

Lamoreaux explained all of the activities that are in store for the event taking place at the Franksville Craft Beer Garden, 9614 Northwestern Ave., including food trucks, games, activities, live music, raffles, a silent auction, and more.

About the segment

Each week a Racine County Eye staff member will share in-depth information on select stories from the week in our collaboration we call the Racine Roundup.

These stories have been curated to highlight what’s happening throughout Racine County, and sometimes Kenosha County as well. The Racine Roundup will focus on providing solution-based journalism to viewers in Racine, Kenosha and Milwaukee Counties and more, reaching a larger audience throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.
