Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
News from South Milwaukee's premiere Celtic band, The Garlic Mustard Pickers:
In the Milwaukee area, we're doing a 1-hr performance at the Hales Corners Farmer's Market.
We're hoping to do this indoors in their barn, where the acoustics are excellent. Otherwise, we'll be outside, with chairs available for the audience.
Farmer's Market at the Stahl-Conrad Homestead
9724 West Forest Home Avenue, Hales Corners
performance time: 10:00-11:00 AM
Also, later on Saturday, we'll be performing at a nature center down in Kenosha County (town of Bristol).

Hello Friends of Grant Park!
A short way of pasting photos and Internet line into my post about Friday's visit by Channel 6's "Real Milwaukee at Studio 915 didn't work, so I'm redoing the entire post. Here it is:
Big doings Friday morning at Studio 915, located at 915 Milwaukee Avenue in South Milwaukee. Tony Clark with Channel 6’s “Real Milwaukee” dropped by.
Journalists from Vietnam and Oman and their U.S. State Department escort enjoyed lively conversation about the presidential campaign and cultural aspects of their countries and the U.S. over dinner at South Milwaukeeans Bobbie Groth and Don Lawson.
I thought I had posted this bit of news a couple of weeksago, but found it this morning in a pending file. It's still great to know that this budding new business made the Milwaukee TV scene -- and in such a fun way. And you can still see a couple of clips of it by clicking on the link below. Enjoy!
South Milwaukee High students had their pre-homecoming celebration Thursday night. From the looks of things they had a great time. The evidence, as usual, was hanging from the trees. Yes, the TPing was quite a sight. The students are to be commended. They did a great job. This picture doesn't do it justice.
