A one-woman army for the brain-injured, Alberte received high praise from readers who admire her dedication and positive attitude.
Lisa Alberte is about five feet tall, and has cemented my theory about short women: beware, because we're on a mission. (Full disclosure: I'm 5'0.5) The director of Acres of Hope and Aspirations, a five-acre farmette nestled amid homes along Durham Place in Muskego, Alberte seems to do the impossible with almost nothing. Dedicated to working with patients suffering from brain injury and cognitive disorders, Alberte also incorporates 'creatures of rehab' to foster their therapy. These animals as well often have disbilities, making her a rescue for such creatures. Despite setbacks due to animal deaths and other 'breaches of security' that have resulted in the loss of several animals over the course of the year, Alberte's attitude is focused …

The list of candidates was impressive and showed a lot of thought on your part. Amazingly, these are the runners up, all of them deserving in their own right for their heart and dedication to what they do.
There weren't a ton of responses to our call for who your Person of the Year would be, but the names that came in are all so deserving. Thanks to those who took a moment to name their candidates. I also want to thank the sweet reader who wanted to nominate me. However, while what I do is certainly more than a job to me, it pales in comparison to the following list: Rob Glazier - "Rob has served on the Community Development Authority for the past 10 years and is the current Chairman of that organization.

"You will also catch Rob at various committee and board meetings that he has no obligation to attend." Glazier was …

Who comes to mind when you think of who's made a difference in the community this year, toiled for something great in relative obscurity or in grand style?
It's the end of the year, and Muskego Patch has had the privilege of meeting some amazing people, doing great things. There was 'Doc' Dentice who's been providing Christmas with the Vets for 24 years, Maxine Learned at Maxine's Studio of Dance who organized the city's first mud run to raise money for cancer research, and Stacy Young who's dedication for cancer fundraising was the inspiration for friends to in turn raise funds to help her in her own battle with the disease. However, we know there are more people doing good that we never hear about. This December, we'd like your help determing the Muskego Patch person of the year. You can nominate anyone who lives, works or volunteers in town, but nominations close at 9 a.m. Dec. 13, so …
