The KNUJ Hometown Hero for the month of June is Connie Lingl of New Ulm. A tragic fire in late February claimed the life of a New Ulm woman, but due to the actions of Connie Lingl many lives were saved. She alerted the residents of the apartment building of the fire and called 911. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM & FM and your New Ulm Hy-Vee.
