Oshkosh Underground, Basement Businesses - taped 4-18-2019

In this latest edition of Eye on Oshkosh, host Cheryl Hentz talks with local author and Oshkosh historian Julie Johnson about her book entitled Oshkosh Down Under: Basement Businesses and the Tunnel from the Hotel Athearn to the Grand Opera House. Some of the topics discussed during the hour include why tunnels were perhaps built in Oshkosh and what things were like here in the 19th and early 20th centuries, how things have changed over the years, and whether any tunnels still exist today.

If anyone wishes to purchase a copy of this extremely well-researched and documented book, they can contact Julie Johnson at Jansen's Restaurant in Oshkosh, or by email at

Equine Therapy and Unity in Community discussed on the latest Eye on Oshkosh

On this edition of Eye on Oshkosh host Cheryl Hentz talks with Sara Keller, a board member with BEAMING, Inc. about their equine therapy program and the people they serve. Equine therapy has become a huge thing in the United States in the last decade or so, and with good reason. It has provided tremendous benefit to those it serves - physically challenged, veterans, and more. They also discuss how people wanting to volunteer can get involved with this wonderful organization. 

In the second segment, Hentz chats with two students from Oshkosh West High School's Academy for Global Studies program about their work on and involvement with this year's Unity in Community.  That event, by the way, is held from 11 am to 3 pm on Saturday, April 13 at the Oshkosh Convention Center and is totally free.
