Check who made Hearts & Darts in the Oct. 14 Ripon Commonwealth – Ripon Commonwealth Press

Every week, the Ripon Commonwealth Press runs Hearts & Darts and/or Quote of the Week on one of its opinion pages.

Here is what made Hearts & Darts for the Oct. 14, 2021 edition of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.


To the four health-care professionals and a police officer who came to the aid of Randy Sabel after the Ripon man recently passed out near a Lambeau Field gate before a recent Packer game. Sabel and co-worker Mark Homan were about to enter Lambeau when Sabel’s knees buckled and his eyes rolled back in his head. The professionals cleared bystanders and immediately administered CPR to the pulseless Sabel until paramedics arrived and injected him several times with an EpiPen to treat what turned out to be a shellfish allergy. Wrote Homan on Facebook after the incident: “Praise God, that our friend and co-worker is home and doing well and that he put ‘angels’ in place at Lambeau Field and at St. Vincent’s Hospital to come to his rescue!!”


To the homeowners off West Fond du Lac Street who don’t take care of the exterior of their home. Despite it being visible to visitors from the west, they haven’t bothered to take a broom to all the spiderwebs on their front porch, “for sale” sign and elsewhere.
