It is with great honor and excitement to announce that on May 12, 2018 Commander Eric Lyons, who
was a commander with the Cuba City Police Department, will have his name added to the Law

and he passed away on November 7, 2015 as a result of that heart attack. The Law Enforcement
Memorial considers it an in the line of duty death if you pass away from a heart attack within 24 hours
of your last shift and meet other criteria. The Board has labeled Commander Lyons death an in the line
of duty death and because of that his name will be added to the Memorial in May.
Although, it is a great honor to have his name added to the wall, it also comes with a financial expense.
The Cuba City Police Department has asked the Grant County Honor Guard to participate with Law
Enforcement week in May at the Memorial. In order to get the Honor Guard to Washington there has
been fund raisers and the response has been overwhelming.
To get the Honor Guard and the Family to Washington will cost approximately $15,000. The family of
Eric Lyons, the Cuba City Police Department, and the Grant County Honor Guard will be doing several
fund raisers over the next few months. If your organization is able to help in any way by donating an
item to be raffled off or any monetary donations would be greatly appreciated. If you have an item that

Cuba City US Presidential Museum to Feature Interactive Displays
Cuba City, Wisconsin, December 13th, 2017. Progress continues in Cuba City, the City of Presidents, toward a Spring 2019 opening of its US Presidential Museum. Committees are now working toward their various goals including fundraising, facility selection and the acquisition of artifacts. One key element for the depiction of the life stories of the 45 US Presidents and their First Ladies will be the incorporation of technology into this undertaking.
The US Presidential Museum’s Steering Committee has been working with McCullough Creative of Dubuque, Iowa on the development of an interactive kiosk to help tell these inspiring stories to the museum’s visitors. The kiosk will present both educational as well as background information, while providing guests with the opportunity to undertake a self-guided tour. McCullough specializes in the design, content development, fabrication and installation of interactive kiosks. “Whether it is in the schoolroom or the boardroom, countless organizations are reaping the benefits of interactive displays,” says, Bob Neumann, Senior Account Manager for McCullough. “They are proven to increase engagement, enhance learning and to create a more impactful experience for the users. We are proud to be working with Cuba City to create an experience that cannot be found anywhere else.” An additional benefit to interactive displays is the ability to easily update the information, increasing the lifespan of the kiosk as well as its ability to attract repeat visitors.
“The kiosk is a key element in our planning, but it will be complemented by a variety of artifacts and photographs to enhance the visitor’s experience in the museum,” says Bob Jones, the Economic Development Director for Cuba City. “We plan for the space to continually evolve into a fully immersive experience, incorporating a wide range of changing exhibits and additional interactive components. While the museum will have information on all Presidents, it will feature two Presidents on a rotating basis, one from the formative years of our Republic and one from the modern era.”
