Dr. Rachel Bakeberg, D.V.M., and technician Jamie Halvorson check over Penny at the Appleton Veterinary Clinic. A June 23 fire destroyed a large portion of the clinic building, but the veterinarian and her staff continue to serve clients of both large and small animals as workers rebuild the fire-damaged portion. Things are crowded as equipment, inventory and both large and small animal care is all housed together behind them. Tribune photo by Tom Cherveny

During the first couple days of the Touring Ride in Rural Indiana September Escapade, we pedaled past fields where the corn grew so high that it prevented seeing anything else.
