With 24 top10 records, 16 No. 1 hits, and having been a 10-time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I Were You.” Collin shot to fame with “Love, Me” in 1991. Listeners were so moved by this golden and pure voice that this song set the cornerstone for a career built on meaningful and emotional songs that have often been used for weddings, anniversaries, memorial services and funerals. Tickets are available at Nelson Agri-Center or by calling 608-606-2340. Nora Roughen-Schmidt is the executive director of the Viroqua Chamber Main Street and can be reached at 637-2575.

SEARS GIFTS freezers to power tools, lawn and garden products, televisions and fitness equipment. Zahm said customers purchasing items will be able to take them home that same day. The Sears Hometown Store will offer an online order system for items that may not be on the showroom floor. Zahm said the Sears Hometown Store will be owned by Nuzums and that one-and-a-half jobs will be added. Nuzums’ existing facility at 1220 N. Main St. in Viroqua is in the process of being completely remodeled to accommodate the addition. Nuzums has been in the community as a business since 1894 and Zahm said its commitment to customers and service will be as strong as ever. “The thing we want customers to know is t h a t N u z u m s wo n ’t change, but we will become more efficient,” Zahm said. “Sears will be a part of Nuzums and the expansion will reflect that.” The Viroqua Sears Ho m e tow n S to re a t Nuzums is one of 900 similar stores being opened across the United States. Zahm said Sears has restructured its business model to “come out of malls and be a storewithin-a-store” and that principle is being followed in Viroqua. While other businesses in Viroqua offer some of the same types of products that will be in the Sears Hometown Store, Zahm sees the inclusion of the Sears in Nuzums as a unique location. “We’re adding something that is important for the whole community,” Zahm said. are starting collections for 2015 starting immediately. Anyone wishing to donate items may bring them to Bethel Butikk at 341 Black River Ave. in Westby.” Proceeds from Bethel Butikk’s thrift shop help stock the food pantry and mission fund that is used for emergency assistance. Hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, until 6 p.m. Tuesday, and from 9 a.m. to noon the first Saturday of the month.
