Struck by lightning
Last week, a man was killed while swimming after lightning struck the ocean at Venice Beach. Like the rest of the country, Milwaukee has experienced crazy thunderstorms this year which prompted OnMilwaukee.com to track down four people who got zapped by lightning.

MKE Teacher SPAce
As if teaching all year long wasn't enough, Melissa Pallin -- who teachers lower elementary (1-3 grades) at Highland Community School and leads a summer learning program, too -- has taken an idea and made it reality in the matter of just a few months. In April, Pallin hit upon the idea of a space that would support her fellow teachers in a wide variety of ways. By July, her MKE Teacher SPAce was open on the second floor of the Plankinton Arcade in The Shops of Grand Avenue.

T-skirts!
Without a sewing background of any kind, Hollie May-Irsarides decided she was going to construct skirts out of T-shirts. Without consulting patterns or You Tube, she created her first "t-skirt" made primarily from one of her husbands' outgrown Harley-Davidson t-shirts. Today, she operates a thriving business, Tigerily Gallery & Boutique.

One way to get your fix is to just play nine holes. It's an idea the Milwaukee County courses, and even golf's governing bodies, are promoting.
