Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

A 75-year-old Caledonia woman died after she was involved in a two-car crash that happened at 6 Mile Rd. and Highway 32 on April 18.

Barbara Jurgens, who was driving a car, died from the injuries she sustained in the crash after she failed to stop for a red light. Her car crashed into an SUV, according to a press release by the Caledonia Police Department.

After an autopsy was performed, the medical examiner determined that “impairment is not suspected as a root cause of the accident.” However, a medical condition Jurgens had is being investigated as a possible cause.
