By Tere Dunlaptdunlap@ themonroetimes.comMONROE - Ken Schlapbach's mother, Helen, insisted their barn receive at good coat of paint in 1997, just before the family hosted the Green County Breakfast on the Farm at their farm near Albany.The barn was destroyed Wednesday night by the high winds that battered the area.Schlapbach was keeping an eye on the wind storm and his cattle that evening near his home on County F and Wis. 59. But at about 8: 30 p.m., when he looked out toward his still brightly-painted barn a quarter mile away, it was already gone. "It was a nasty straight line of winds," Schlapbach said.
