LADDER 10: A year after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, The Post-Crescent visited New York City to tell the story of the firefighters who were stationed next to the World Trade Center complex when its towers collapsed killing thousands of people.
Five men from Ten House were among the 343 firefighters who perished that day. The station’s ladder truck was destroyed as well.
A Clintonville, Wis. manufacturer rushed replacement parts and trucks to New York, including a special ladder truck for Ten House. In 2011, in advance of the 10th anniversary of the attacks, The P-C revisited the firehouse to check in on the truck and the firefighters.
Revisit the series.

BASEBALL STARS: Two Milwaukee Brewers stars stopped by the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers’ games over the weekend. 

Hank the Dog, the team’s unofficial mascot, greeted fans on Sunday. The stray pup wandered into the Brewers’ spring-training facility in Arizona this year.

Slugging third baseman Aramis Ramirez also showed up in Grand Chute this weekend. He completed a two-game rehab assignment with the minor league team.

We’ve got more photos over here.
