Love is in the air and Patch is here to help share those fuzzy feelings on the interwebs. Take a look at all the great comments shared about these couples and just who took the title, Patch's Cutest Couple.
Brad Rosenbaum and Jenny Sproehlich of Menomonee Falls will enjoy dinner at a Port Washington restuarant after winning Patch's Cutest Couple Valentine's Day contest. The 15 Patch sites in southeastern Wisconsin invited couples to post their photos online and asked readers to vote on their favorites. We received more than 70 nominations of couple of all ages, and more than 100 votes. Brad and Jenny earned 25 votes to take home the prize: a $40 gift card for a romantic dinner donated by The Pasta Shoppe in Port Washington. As Brad explained, that restaurant has special meaning for the couple: Jenny and I first met at the Pasta Shoppe, which is way too big of a coincidence for this contest! Vote for me and I....promise not to bring politics …

The fourth installment to the Border Wars series documents the recent tilt between Hamilton and Menomonee Falls.
Menomonee Falls took vengeance on the 2nd ranked Hamilton Chargers after they placed their flag in the middle of Menomonee Falls field before the game started. The Indians (3-2, 3-1 Greater Metro) put an end to the Chargers' (4-1, 3-1 Greater Metro) perfect season with a dose of hard-hitting defense, and tough running. From the start, it was clear the energy and significance of the match up wasn't lost on the boys in burgundy and grey. Beyond the three turnovers, the Chargers will likely leave Schumann Stadium with a soured onside kick memory. Menomonee Fall's Justin Clough produces another jaw-dropping video that documents all of the action.

Note: This story has been updated at 3:09 p.m. to include comments from Waukesha One of the biggest development questions hanging over Menomonee Falls was whether Kohl’s headquarters would stay in Falls and expand or grow elsewhere.
