In case you missed it, here is the MacIver Institute report on the vandalism and the protests at Messmer High School. Teaching African American children in Milwaukee is not the priority for the teachers union. Print this entry

I don’t think this helps downtown Waukesha at all. Ramon Antonio Mitre “Tony” Hernandez, owner of D Mo’s Pasta and Chop House in downtown Waukesha, was arrested at about 2 a.m. Friday, according to police reports. A 911 hang-up call plotted to Hernandez’s residence in the 300 block of Mill Reserve Drive, where officers met […]

Saw this item in the police blotter among the other ridiculous items: Thursday: 9:21 p.m. – A man asked officers to approach a bar in the 300 block of West Main Street on foot so they could hear how loud the live music was playing. Police asked the band to close the doors to the […]

I went to the reception put on by Partners in Development and the Huelsmans Thursday night hoping to learn more about the proposed hotel and conference center. Unfortunately, we probably won’t learn too much for a couple of months, but there were a few surprises at the cocktail party. There was a brief (less than […]

In case you missed it, the Waukesha Freeman did a profile of Sally’s Sweet Shoppe in Genesee Depot. The Lovely Doreen from Waukesha is a frequent customer there and we highly recommend it. It was really great to enjoy ham with the dill rolls from Sally’s during today’s Brewers game. A winning combination. Print this […]

I am no longer in the anti-roundabout camp. It’s not because I find them that much more convenient than four-way stops. It’s not that I think Wisconsin drivers are finally learning how to drive through them. But Wisconsin drivers don’t know how to drive through four-way stops, so what difference does it make? Everyday I […]
