For those of you that do not subscribe to JS Everywhere, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s new online pay service, you are going to be limited to just twenty stories each month. Just think how you’ll feel when you click the link to Dan Bice’s latest to discover that he wrote an article about copy-editing a […]

  Let’s take a look back at 2011 at the events that made Waukesha a little more like Waukesha, or WackySha, or even WiggySha.   Biggest story of the year: Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus forgetting to include the city of Brookfield in the Waukesha County vote count for Wisconsin Supreme Court. The “oops” that […]

City of Waukesha residents, it could be worse. You could be living in Franklin where they did pass a garbage fee last year. Kevin Fischer is going through the top ten news stories in Franklin and delved into the taxes and fees of Franklin. Hey, Franklin taxpayer, did you notice anything different on your property […]

It’s a sick, twisted grab at attention, and it should not be approvingly quoted on Twitter, either. Given Lew Rockwell’s possible role as the ghostwriter of the racist Ron Paul newsletters, one would think […]

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is moving to a paid online subscription service. JS Everywhere will cost a stiff $2.35 per week, or you can subscribe to the print edition (ink, paper, that sort of thing). Just subscribing to the Sunday edition costs $2.30 each week and you still get JS Everywhere. Unless you subscribe to […]

Everyone dislikes defense attorneys until they need one. However, Jennifer Dorow, Governor Scott Walker’s pick for the second branch of the Circuit Court of Waukesha County, has an interesting practice. She defends sexual predators of children. Our lawyers have an impressive track record: attorney Matthew Huppertz has argued hundreds of cases in front of Wisconsin’s […]
