Bea Koch | Obituary - La Crosse Tribune
Oct. 15, 2012. Bea and Owen together operated one of the most successful dairy farms in Southern Wisconsin, for over 40 years and were frequently recognized for their Holstein cattle. Following the sale of their farm and beloved Holsteins, Bea and Owen relocated to the Viroqua-Westby area. Following retirement from farming, Bea worked at Walmart for 27 years and formed many enduring relationships. Walmart was in some ways her "happy place." Bea was a thoughtful, humble and elegant woman, who was well known for her chocolate fudge, pineapple upside down cake and various other sweets. She loved desserts and ice cream bars and never turned down a good strong cup of black coffee. A lover of "all things to do with shopping," Bea was always conscientious and wanted to do the right thing. Bea had many friends from her days on the farm and card clubs, to her Oak Knoll and Walmart friends and Maplewood/Bethel Oaks. Surviving Bea are her three children, Randy (Heidi) of Gardnerville, Nev., Patricia (Dennis) Sobik of Merritt Island, Fla., and David (Julie) of Wayzata, Minn. Further surviving are six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Sigurd (Cinda) Molland; two sisters, Joan Hayhurst and Emma (John) Oleski. She was preceded in death by her husband, Owen; parents, Oscar and Myrtle; brothers, Oscar and Peter; as well as sisters, Ernestine Koch, Danna Helgerson and Kathryn Nederloe. The family would like to thank the staff at Maplewood Terrace, Bethel Oaks, and the Bland Bekkedal Hospice House, for their tender loving care of Bea. A memorial service and celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. Jan 4, 2020
In California: Rose Parade float celebrates the caregivers among us - USA TODAY
Jerry and Judy Crotsenberg, both 68, who are dedicated to making sure they can age in place together on their family farm in Wisconsin.
“We think about hope’s heroes as the family caregivers who are protecting the ideal vision of home for an older loved one who wants to stay living well in community,” said Gretchen Alkema, vice president of policy and communications at the SCAN Foundation, a charity organization that works to expand improve care for older adults.
Family caregivers provide an estimated 34 billion hours of labor amounting to roughly $470 billion of unpaid contributions, according to a recently released report from nonprofit AARP.
One in six adults is currently taking on this role at home. That includes my mom, who takes care of my dad and abuelita in San Diego County. Thanks, mom.
Planning to watch or go to the Rose Parade? Here are some things to know.
New laws, new housing, more lawsuits
New laws in 2020 include caps on rent increases, increases in paid family leave from six to eight weeks and a change that allows people convicted of felonies who served their time to sit on juries.
There's also a sweeping privacy law that allows you to see which companies are selling your data and to stop them from selling it.
Then there's another law aimed at protecting gig workers. Uber and Postmates are suing to block that one from going into effect on Jan. 1.
Landlords of rent-controlled buildings in Los Angeles are using a controversial way of co-ownership — think NYC co-ops — to divvy up properties. Critics say it's reducing the tiny supply of affordable rentals.
A private prison firm that just secured multibillion-dollar contracts to run federal immigration detention centers in California has sued the state, claiming that a new ban on for-profit lockups is unconstitutional.
California poised to lose a congressional seat
For the first time since becoming a state, new census data shows that very possibility. The reapportionment, done every 10 years, will follow the completion of the 2020 census. The actual redrawing of the congressional maps will take place the following year, in 2021.

Flower-covered Floats Blossom at the Annual Rose Parade - HowStuffWorks
Pac-12 and Big Ten. (The 2020 Rose Bowl will host No. 6 Oregon Ducks and No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers, Jan. 1, 2020. at 5 p.m. EST. The Rose Parade starts at 11 a.m. EST.)
History of the Tournament of Roses Parade
That first Rose Parade welcomed 3,000 people to an event filled with beautiful horse-drawn carriages covered in flowers. During the next few years, the parade was expanded to include marching bands and motorized floats, and the games included ostrich races, bronco-busting demonstrations, and a race between a camel and an elephant (the elephant won).
Viewing stands were eventually built along the parade route, which today runs 5.5 miles (8.8 kilometers) from the corner of Green Street and Orange Grove Boulevard to Colorado Boulevard (where the majority of the viewing occurs) before heading to Sierra Madre Boulevard and then ending at Villa Street.
In 1895, the Tournament of Roses Association was formed to take charge of the event, which had grown too large for the Valley Hunt Club to handle. Now more than a century after its formation, the two-hour New Year's Day parade is attended annually by about 700,000 spectators who revel in a beauty of its magnificent floats, talented marching bands and high-stepping equestrians.
All About Those Fabulous Floats
If there's one thing the Rose Parade is known for, it's the elaborate floats. Some feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats still are built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are constructed by a cadre of professional float-building companies and take nearly a year to complete.
Remaining true to its floral beginnings, every inch of every float must be covered with flowers or other natural materials, such as leaves, seeds or bark. The most delicate flo...
