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.

Students at Olympia Brown Elementary School last week learned how important exercise is to living a healthy life when members of the Green Bay Packers visited the school as part of the NFL’s Play 60 initiative.

Play 60/Fuel Up to Play is a program aimed at teaching kids how to eat healthier and to get outside and play for at least 60 minutes a day to combat childhood obesity.

The students of Olympia Brown was chosen to participate, and last Wednesday, players and coaches from the Green Bay Packers visited the school to put students through drills to get them excited about physical activity.

Members of the William Horlick High School football team also joined in the fun.
