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.

Roughly 1 in 3 handshakes are done with a person who may not have washed their hands according to a survey released Thursday by Menomonee Falls-based Bradley Corp. The survey queried state residents on how often they wash their hands after using a public restroom.
