EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — To Charlie Kwick, hosta gardening was always just hobby — something the 78-year-old decided to take up in his retirement along with golf and making jam.
But during the last decade, as the Eau Claire resident has gradually filled up his south side front yard with hostas, most of which of his own creation through hybridizing, it's becoming clear Kwick's passion for the shade-tolerant foliage plants isn't just another hobby. It's a talent.

Students approve of UW-EC’s new Black Cultural Center
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) — Snuggled under a blanket in the middle of an oversized bean bag chair, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire sophomore Avery Benson couldn't have looked much more comfortable in the middle of a campus with nearly 11,000 students.
With only about 1 percent of those students being African-American, offering a space where black students could feel at home was a primary motivation for creating the recently opened Black Cultural Center in Centennial Hall.
