COVID-19 survivor comes home


Reunited in Eastman, the Bells from left, Craig, Julie and Tyler were joined by their friend and neighbor Brian Sipos earlier this week. Craig Bell was hospitalized for two weeks after he tested positive for the COVID-19 virus on March 31. Although he must undergo kidney dialysis three times per week, he says each day is better than the day before.

When Craig Bell arrived home to Eastman April 14, he was greeted by a line of vehicles, including local fire trucks, lights and sirens, welcoming home their neighbor and friend. He stood for a few moments by the vehicle, waving and seemingly smiling underneath his mask, before going inside. (Photo by Correne Martin)

Dolomite limestone that once served as the foundation for the Prairie du Chien Sanitarium (pictured, right) is for sale from Mark Thornburg. Also, the Prairie du Chien Historical Society is in discussion with Thornburg to acquire and restore the former commandant’s quarters that sits on the same site.
