Wind grounds balloons
Hot air balloon pilot Kurt Hintz, in front, with Which Way of Appleton, gets ready to put away his basket, which was sponsored by Emmi Roth, after Friday evening's launch for the Monroe Balloon and Blues Festival was canceled due to winds. Friday night's glow also was canceled. Today's flights also depend on the weather.
