Favorite Local Celebrity

If you are a Chippewa Valley musician with a passionate following, you have a good chance of landing in the top three of the Favorite Local Celebrity category. Also, being a dental professional with a passionate following doesn’t hurt. Chris Kroeze is again the fave western Wisconsin celebrity.  Justin Vernon may have to settle for second place in our poll, though he can fall back on being part of two No. 1 Taylor Swift albums in 2020. A new presence in this field is orthodontist, businessman, and philanthropist Dr. Steve Kristo of Kristo Orthodontics, debuting this year in third. –Luc Anthony
