The two biggest towns in Monroe County each have mayors who own bars. They describe what it was really like when Wisconsin re-opened after its Supreme Court threw out Gov. Tony Evers' Safer at Home order. It's not what you saw in the national media. At least not in Monroe County. Sparta Mayor Kristen Gust and Tomah Mayor Mike Murray talk about reopening their cities and their businesses. We hear about Friday night fish fries and Wisconsin's go-to cocktail. And we also learn a bit of Tomah's political and cultural history--as well as what podcast host Kate RIce's mother likes to drink!
