Miss La Crosse more than meets the eye

UW-L student uses pageant to promote deeply personal passion

Many people don’t realize how much time and dedication go into beauty pageants. Being a pageant contestant requires much more than a pretty face; it requires hard work and a desire to be heard. Recently crowned Miss La Crosse, UW-L sophomore Raenna Johnson, has what it takes to succeed.
Johnson first became involved with beauty pageants her senior year of high school when she won Miss Holmen 2007. The chance to win scholarships was what pushed her towards being a contestant, and her Miss Holmen win rewarded her with $2,000 in scholarship money.
Johnson also wanted to use pageants as a way to project a message very important to her. About four years ago, her brother Tyler ended his life as the result of a methamphetamine addiction. This tragedy inspired Johnson to speak out on drug use prevention and awareness, which was her platform in the recent Miss La Crosse pageant.

Taking Time For Life’s SImplest Pleasures

clipped from

The day I turned fifty the gift my daughter and son-in-law gave me was the news I was going to be a grandmother.  What a welcome to that golden age which is sometimes dismissed as a hallmark of the best being over.

Instead it was the signal of the infancy of what has proven to be the most incredible time in my life!  My little birthday present (also known as Maddie) continues to bring joy in our lives in ways I could not dream were possible.  Today was one of those days.

At a time in my life where possibilities abound and life is busy, my granddaughter’s excitement reminds me we often get so enthralled in our vocations and avocations we sometimes forget to stop for a moment and take in the simplicity and wonderment of a less than two year old child.

When it was time to leave I was reminded of the importance of enjoying the simplest of things in life.  Spending time with Maddie was a moment that I would not have traded for all the flash bulb or client possibilities in the world.
