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.

I don't blog about South Milwaukee High School football, even though I go to a lot of the games. But tonight's game against Greenfield is an exception. I don't believe I've ever seen a game like it.
First off, even though the Rockets went into tonight's game undefeated, I didn't have high hopes that their record would hold, given that one of their best players, Ian Pribyl was out with an injury. And things didn't look too good when the Hustlin' Hawks scored on the second play of the game.
On the heels of the great review of my book Anatomy of a Trial, comes a radio interview. I’m scheduled to be on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Joy Cardin Show, http://wpr.org/programs/joy-cardin-show, on Thursday (Oct. 3) at 6 a.m. to talk about ”Anatomy” (now in e-format).
If 6 is a bit early, it'll be archived on the WPR/Joy Cardin Show website later that day. I'll post the link when it's available.
