Social Circle: What should OnMilwaukee.com write about next?


Welcome to a weekly segment called "Social Circle." It's OnMilwaukee.com's first article that's truly a group effort between readers, social networkers and the OnMilwaukee.com editors.

Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in the Thursday column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.

OnMilwaukee.com does its best to provide interesting, Brew City-centric content and articles that readers won't find anywhere else. The editors are always open to story ideas and this week, they turn to members of the Social Circle to hear what they want to read.

Feel free to contribute your article ideas via the Talkback feature.

Alejandro Prego Berjon: "Something that challenges people to change and really think. Asking tough questions, exposing people for the 'funnies' they are. It's like an infection that's ravaging this country, we don't seem to be able to make tough decisions any more, and in so doing, we've created a culture of avoidance, one that says 'no' to everything that might upset someone, instead of saying 'yes' and taking bold steps."

Sura Faraj: "Cannoli! Pepperoni! I want to know who that guy is."

Russ Fascia: "Road Salt: its use and abuse."

Kevin Frank: "Men's health during Pancreatic Cancer awareness month. Men's health so often falls behind the awareness that women's has. Or spotlight MADACC (animal control), since so few are aware of what they do for animals and that it is the first step to recovering a lost pet. Also they are getting a new ED this month."

Anthony Garrison: "Why Milwaukee is the best damn place on planet Earth."

Rachel Goeden: "One about my organization's (called We Run This) effort to get women runners into free shoes to get and keep them running healthily!"

Tammy Kolbe: "How obnoxious it is that X-mas stuff is out already or stuff to do in winter besides sitting at a bar."

Tom Loblow: "Stand up comedy."

Lisa Malmarowski: "I follow a blog called 'Scouting New York' and he's always finding interesting bits of hidden NYC history lurking in buildings, etc. It would be cool to see OnMilwaukee do something similar – hidden Milwaukee."

Dave Mikolajek: "Jose the barber on KK."

Sarah Anne Minella: "‎Sophia Gatti Taylor of Wisdom Wellness. She has gone through hell and back and birthed a life-changing program from it. Or Dave Swanson of Braise. They are opening soon and they are a most AMAZING community supported restaurant. Or check out Tony Schueller of Anton Music Productions as well. He is an amazing producer with a great vision for the future of the Milwaukee music scene."

Ted Perry: "Front Row Amy. It's been almost 48 hours since the last article."

Marla Schmidt: "smallbusinesssaturday.com."

Bret Spangenberg: "Places for the best pie, mainly cherry."

Gary Thurner, Jr: "I was just thinking something superficial like women in tennis outfits or yoga pants. @Rachel's idea not only provided a topic for an article that could provide opportunities for women's health and wellness, but also provides the potential for me(n) to satisfy such shallow desires. OnMilwaukee, I think it's a win, win for me(n), women, Rachel and the community."

Mitchell Wakefield: "Freeway, the man. Just turned 50 and is arguably Milwaukee's most legendary and visible living icon since Dick Bacon died. Or Frank Pecoraro, the pepperoni cannoli guy."

Shelly Willems: "What to do away from the malls on Black Friday. I'm planning going to the Milwaukee Art Museum to get my Impressionism on."

Wow, the Social Circle really comes up with some great story ideas. {**insert heavy sarcasm**} How about trying your hand at reporting some actual news for a change? Any new developments on the Milwaukee Streetcar? How about at least one story that makes mention of the Occupy Movement or Occupy Milwaukee? Is Milwaukee planning on selling Great Lakes water to Waukesha? Will selling water to Waukesha improve city-suburban relations or will it only further divert growth and development away from Milwaukee to the suburbs? What happened to the Simple Cafe that was supposed to move into the building that formerly housed Crank Daddy's? Why are there so many vacant retail storefronts on the East Side yet so few national retailers like American Apparel and Urban Outfitters? Are there any plans to develop the former Prospect Mall? Is the Marcus Corp. still planning on bringing a movie theater to Downtown? How about something about urban agriculture seen as how we're home to Growing Power and Sweetwater Organics? Last but not least, how about hiring a decent photographer to provide some visual stimulation for your articles, you are an online publication after all, it's not like you're constrained by lack of space on the page.

I would like to see an article detailing the statistical analysis of spending versus achievement at MPS. Then, I want to see similar data for nearby suburban school districts. Please correlate the achievement metrics (test scores, graduation rate, college admission, etc.) based upon a comprehensive set of factors--like geographic location, average neighborhood income, localized crime data, and rate of students coming from single parent homes.

maybe a reader poll asking: what's the worst show in television history? with only one option listing "grey's anatomy." the audience of that show loves to be insulted. it would be a hit for sure.

i would like to see a story about how crazy it is that a dime from 1964(or earlier) can buy you more than a gallon of gas today(because of it's silver content), but a dime from 1965(or later) doesn't buy you a gum ball. i can't help but wonder what i'd be complaining about (besides dave begel) if our money still had that kind of purchasing power.
