In 2002, Jason Padgett was just an average guy. Not the best student; he had graduated from high school a few years back, just. He got by selling futons and spending his off time pumping iron and partying. But a brutal attack changed all that. Muggers jumped him outside a bar and left him on the sidewalk, a victim of severe head trauma.

Two very funny new stories have been installed in the StoryWalk® on the east end of Lakeside Park near the intersection of Harbor View and Winnebago drives.
The new stories, The Bear Ate Your Sandwich by Julia Sarcone-Roach and Move Over, Rover by Karen Beaumont, encourage families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by reading a book – a page at a time – at intervals on the walking trail.
The Lakeside Park project was installed in 2015 by the Fond du Lac Public Library and City of Fond du Lac Parks Dept. and sponsored by Morning Kiwanis.
