first_imgBy Edward AnschutzSEYMOUR, Wis. (Aug. 19) – J.J. Andersen went into the Sunday night IMCA Modified event at Outagamie Speedway seeking a weekend sweep but Brian Mullen had other ideas.The winner Friday at Luxemburg Speedway and Saturday at 141 Speedway, Anderson jumped to the early lead and appeared to be well on his way to completing the 3-for-3 weekend. Mullen raced from row four into the runner-up spot on lap five.With Andersen and Mullen both running the top groove, it looked as if that’s how they would finish but a caution on lap eight changed everything. With Mullen restarting down low, Andersen switched to the bottom of the track and allowed Mullen the preferred line up top.Mullen took the lead, going unchallenged the remainder of the event for the win. Andersen ended in second. Tyler Wilson, Johnny Whitman and Benji LaCrosse completed the top five.Brandon Czarapata checked out in winning the caution-free IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature while Jason Ebert was never challenged in racing to his second straight Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod victory.Cody Booth scored his first Mach-1 Sport Compact win of the season.last_img read more

first_imgLoretta A. “Pete” Kinker, age 90 of Batesville, died Monday, January 20, 2020 at Morning Breeze in Greensburg.  Born February 17, 1929 in Decatur County Indiana, she is the daughter of Anna (Nee: Duvelius) and Harry Kinker.   She was a member of St. Catherine of Sienna Church Enochsburg Campus and St. Louis Church.Affectionately known at Pete, she was born with Cerebral Palsy. Although she spent quite a bit of her early years back and forth at Riley’s Children’s Hospital, she never let her limitations slow her down. She was the official babysitter for many of her nieces and nephews.  Loretta had a feisty personality and enjoyed rough housing with them.  Able to get them into a headlock, they teased that she had a “mean right hook.”  She treasured time with family.  As her parents aged, she took care of them as well as the chores around the house.  Loretta was very devout, attending church and praying the rosary daily.  Eventually her health prevented her from going to church but, she never missed it on T.V.  Bingo and playing cards were favorite pastimes while sitting on a swing enjoying an occasional glass of wine or a margarita was relaxing.Loreteta is survived by her sister Rosemary Cook of Batesville, brother Louis Kinker of Enochsburg and numerous nieces and nephews who were a significant part of her life.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by sisters Julia Pumphrey, Margaret Mollaun, Leona Moeller, Virginia Heck and brother Omer Kinker.Visitation is Saturday, January 25th, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Church at Enochsburg.  Funeral services follow at 11 a.m. with Rev. Bill Ehalt officiating.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family requests memorials to Riley’s Children’s Hospital.last_img read more
