The copper kettles at La Crosse’s City Brewery, flanking recently retired Brewmaster Randy Hughes, date from

The copper kettles at La Crosse’s City Brewery, flanking recently retired Brewmaster Randy Hughes, date from 1949 and 1920. They are the only two copper kettles remaining in the building. Pabst Brewing Co.’s new long-term contract production agreement with La Crosse-based City Brewing Co. probably will increase employment at the La Crosse brewery during the next five years, a local union official said Tuesday. Pabst said Monday it intends to transition the majority of its production volume to City Brewing’s facilities by December 2024. Pabst said the contract lasts until 2040. Rob Moss, business agent for Teamsters Local 695, which represents hourly production workers at the City Brewery in La Crosse, said Tuesday he hopes the announcement will result in at least 50 additional production jobs there within the next five years. “But that’s just speculation on my part; it’s nothing from the company,” Moss said of that number, adding that City Brewery officials haven’t told him how many jobs might be added because of the Pabst announcement. His union local has about 390 members working at the brewery, Moss estimated. The agreement likely will result in more jobs and ...

Thankfully, it’s not hard to find brilliant Amazon products that’ll make your living spaces a million times more comfortable.

Electric cars (for adults) are super expensive, but kids’ versions are lot more affordable. We’ve rounded

Electric cars (for adults) are super expensive, but kids’ versions are lot more affordable. We’ve rounded up a range from the cheaper 6V models up to licenced versions with more power and more features. Prices range from under £100 to several hundred, and it’s not simply licensing fees that make the difference. One of the biggest factors is the battery voltage. This – along with the wattage of the motor(s) – determines how powerful the car is. The lowest priced cars have 6V batteries and therefore are quite slow and may not cope with steep hills or rough terrain. As voltage rises, so does price, but more powerful toys tend to offer multiple speeds as well. This can be a benefit as a child can grow into a car, starting off with the slowest speed and graduating to the higher speed when they’ve learned to control the car. Watch out for cars that lack reverse, and find out how long the battery lasts between charges, and how long it takes to charge, too. Most manufacturers will state the age range for the car, and since you’ll be spending quite a bit of money, it’s worth getting a car that the child can grow into and enjoy for several years. Cars that come with remote controls...

One of the most popular events on the calendar, the Highgate Harriers Night of the 10,000m PBs returns

One of the most popular events on the calendar, the Highgate Harriers Night of the 10,000m PBs returns on Saturday, hosting the European 10,000m Cup for the second successive year, writes Paul Halford. The special atmosphere, boosted by free spectator entry, will no doubt once again propel the runners, whether elite or good club level, to fast times. Although last year’s men’s winner, Richard Ringer of Germany, has pulled out to race in Lausanne instead, Lonah Salpeter is back to defend her women’s title. The Israeli won last year with 31:33:03 but is clearly capable of better than that national record, given her recent half-marathon and marathon times of 66:09 and 2:19:46. Britain’s team is headed by Eilish McColgan, who is in the form of her life after setting PBs last month over 1500m and 5000m. Alice Wright will line up for Britain, having missed the Doha selection standard of 31:50 by just six seconds in Palo Alto, while Sarah Inglis is on the team after her 32:11 performance last month. Charlotte Arter, Mhairi Maclennan and Verity Ockenden complete the sextet for the defending champions. Portugal will have a strong and experienced team, with Ana Dulce Felix having run belo...

Over 30 best-selling ‘fruit’ drinks for kids deemed unhealthy and contain less than 5% juice

Last year, Americans spent nearly $1.5billion on children’s fruit drinks and flavored waters – and none of them are healthy, a new report says.   Researchers from the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at the University of Connecticut, looked at 34 of the top-selling sweetened drinks marketed to kids. They found that none of them meet the nutritional recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Most of the sweetened drinks contained no more than five percent of juice and almost as much added sugar as children should have in a day.    With obesity rates at 18.5 percent among children and teens between ages two and 19, and continuing to rise, the team hopes that parents can become more informed about the drinks their kids are consuming to help curb the growing epidemic.  A new report from the University of Connecticut found sweetened fruit drinks (pictured) made up 62% of total children’s drink sales in 2018, but 100% juice drinks made up just 38% of sales For the report, titled Children’s Drink FACTS 2019, researchers looked at the top-selling brands of drinks marketed primarily to children. This included 34 sweetened drinks – such a...
