The first railroad line in the state was opened between Milwaukee and Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin) in 1851 by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. The railroad pushed on, reaching Milton, Wisconsin in 1852, Stoughton, Wisconsin in 1853, and the capital city of Madison in 1854. The company reached its goal of completing a rail line across the state from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River when the line to Prairie du Chien was completed in 1857. Shortly after this, other railroad companies completed their own tracks, reaching La Crosse (La Crosse, Wisconsin) in the west and Superior (Superior, Wisconsin) in the north, spurring development in those cities. By the end of the 1850s, railroads crisscrossed the state, enabling the growth of other industries that could now easily ship products to markets across the country.

Bradbury Robinson, playing for visionary coach Eddie Cochems at St. Louis University, threw the first legal pass in a September 5, 1906 game against Carroll College (Carroll College (Wisconsin)) at Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin). Other important changes, formally adopted in 1910, were the requirements that at least seven offensive players be on the line of scrimmage at the time of the snap, that there be no pushing or pulling, and that interlocking interference (arms linked or hands on belts and uniforms) was not allowed. These changes greatly reduced the potential for collision injuries. John S. Watterson, "Inventing Modern Football", ''American Heritage'' magazine, June 1988 Several coaches emerged who took advantage of these sweeping changes. Amos Alonzo Stagg introduced such innovations as the huddle, the tackling dummy, and the pre-snap shift. Vancil (2000), pp 17 Other coaches, such as Pop Warner (Glenn Scobey Warner) and Knute Rockne, introduced new strategies that still remain part of the game. *Stevens Point (Stevens Point, Wisconsin) - WWSP, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point *Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin) - WCCX, Carroll University - url http: penelope.uchicago.edu Thayer E Gazetteer Topics astronomy _Texts secondary ALLSTA Eridanus*.html quote It is the solitary star visible from the latitude of New York City in early winter evenings, low down in the south, on the meridian with Menkar of the Whale; but Baily said that its brilliancy has probably lessened since Ptolemy's time, for the latter designated it by α — i.e. of the 1st magnitude. a fact which is all the more enigmatic since the brighter star Achernar can be found just above the horizon in Alexandria where Ptolemy lived and would have been easily visible to merchants trading farther up the Nile. farm. In 1893, John Tuohy sold the land to his son William who saw it as the perfect opportunity to build a golf course. The resort, including grand hotel, 12 cottages, and 18-hole golf course, drew many people from Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin), and even Chicago (Chicago, Illinois). When the course first opened, it was only 25 cents to play 18 holes, but William was known for letting people golf for free if they didn't have enough money. Biography Bestor was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and raised in Orem, Utah, graduating from Orem High School in 1976. His grandfather played trumpet in Tommy Dorsey's band and his great uncle played trombone in Jack Benny's band. He got his start in music as his parents "required" their children to take piano lessons, which he didn't always enjoy. He was envious of his friends who were out playing football and other sports while he was stuck practicing piano. One day his mother told him to "play something that sounds like a sunrise." He came up with something he said wasn't much, but it opened the door to a new level of enjoyment with the piano; composing. He says he still hasn't written a song especially for his mother, but hopes to be good enough to do that some day. He also learned to play the trumpet, playing in the pep band in high school. He is an accomplished trumpeter, pianist and composer, as evidenced in his concerts and recordings, along with a few vocals. Some vocals are synthesized with his keyboard, as in his famous ''Prayer of the Children''.
