On Saturday, April 12, I ran in the Badgerland Striders South Shore Half-Marathon. My son, Chris, came home from college for the weekend and we ran together (at least for the first nine miles).
I recently spoke with Joe Fahey. Joe is a Cudahy resident and statewide organizer with the "Institute for Wisconsin's Future" (IWF), a non-profit group that does state and local tax research. Joe asks the question, "How can we have safe streets, good schools, smooth roads, well-maintained parks and help for the elderly .... without raising property taxes?"
I recently attended the "Body Worlds" exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum. When I first heard about this exhibit I thought it was strange, creepy and kind of offensive. The idea of using human bodies as works of art struck me as a little odd.
Once again, there is lots of news to report this week. A lot of people are stepping up to the plate to clean and preserve our parks, while others are preparing for athletic events in our local Milwaukee County Parks.
The Badgerland Striders will once again be hosting the annual South Shore Half-Marathon on Saturday, April 12th. This race starts in South Shore Park in Bay View. Starting out in South Shore Park, runners run south through Bay View Park, past the condos in St. Francis, then through Sheridan, Warnimont and Grant Parks. At the mid-way point in Grant Park, the course reverses direction and the runners follow the same path north to the finish line at the South Shore Park pavilion.
