We’ll start with Rich Ryman’s look at Mark Murphy creating a bit of speculation by putting his De Pere home on the market.
Mark Murphy is selling his house in De Pere, but the Green Bay Packers president and CEO isn't leaving town.
"We are downsizing," Murphy said. "We are not leaving the area. In fact, we are moving about 200 yards. We love De Pere and being so close to the river and the trail."
Murphy and his wife Laurie bought the house, built in 1858, shortly after he joined the Packers in December 2007. The 7,363-square-foot house has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The nearly 2-acre lot includes a swimming pool. It adjoins the Fox River State Recreational Trail and includes riverfront access.
The listing price is $1.5 million. The Murphys paid $1.25 million in 2008, according to Brown County real estate records.
Among the house's previous owners were developer Harry Macco and St. Norbert College.
"It's historic. We felt like we had this responsibility to be stewards," Murphy said. "It's time for a new family to enjoy it as much as we did."
