Collin Raye in concert
Musician Collin Raye
will perform at the Temple
Theatre in Viroqua, Saturday, Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
Country artist Raye was
one of the true hit makers
of the 1990s. 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

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. No
staff are paid, so the project is entirely operated by
volunteers. Anyone interested in volunteering may
contact coordinator Kathy
Griffin at 608-634-4208.
