Extreme Makeover: Home Edition coming to Wisconsin

According to the Boo News:

Ty Pennington and the crew of the television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will knock on the door of a needy — but lucky — southern Wisconsin family on July 24.

The family's identity is secret, but Veridian Homes of Madison is organizing a work crew to tear down the existing home and build a new one in four days.
Extreme Makeover is that show where they find a needy and deserving family and totally remake their home in a few days by recruiting hundreds of volunteers and working around the clock. There are, according to the story, five finalist families. And one of them might be...

Although the identities of the five finalist families haven't been revealed, ABC staffers interviewed the Sue Klang family of Cazenovia in May. They also videotaped and interviewed faculty, staff and students in the Weston School District. Klang is the widow of John Klang, former Weston High School principal who was murdered while trying to disarm a student in 2006.
I wrote about Mr. Klang here. Since I don't know who any of the other potential finalists are, I won't hope the Klangs get it.

But, geez, I hope they get it.
