Urban spelunking: Solomon Juneau's cabin

Miyazaki's "Perimeter" photo project circumnavigates Lake Michigan
Though the exhibition was a small one, Milwaukee photographer Kevin Miyazaki's "Perimeter" show at the Haggerty Museum was one of the highlights of the local arts scene in 2013. Now, the project is showcased in a hardcover book -- officially launched with an event on Wednesday, Sept. 17 -- and we caught up with Miyazaki to ask him about the inspiration for and the perspiration of creating this unmatched exploration of Lake Michigan and its diverse users.

Is it time for another racing sausage?
Like you, we love the Klement's Racing Sausages. But, the other day, while gazing down at the figures on a T-shirt celebrating 20 years of sal-seech, I wondered if a few of them couldn't use a bit of a makeover and if the time is ripe for a sixth member of the meat-grinder gang.

Urban Spelunking: The Modjeska Theater
Once upon a time, The Modjeska Theater, 1134 W. Mitchell St., was a neighborhood movie palace, the big daddy of Mitchell Street, the second busiest thoroughfare in Milwaukee after Wisconsin Avenue. Now, after four dormant years, and decades after it ended its run as a movie house, Mitchell Street Development Opportunity Corporation is cleaning it up, with an eye toward re-opening in spring with a mix of movies, concerts and other live performances.

Report: State education funding model fuels inequities across Wisconsin
Madison's non-partisan Forward Institute released a report Monday that looked at education funding across the state of Wisconsin and found that over the past decade increasing poverty, deep education cuts, voucher expansion, the economic recession and growing rates of bilingual and special needs enrollment have led to a system that fuels funding and opportunity gaps among Wisconsin students and communities.

Social media could help MPS parent coordinators connect
When school opened for the majority of MPS schools this week, most every program had a new 30-hour-a-week parent coordinator paraprofessional on staff to help school staff and families build bridges. At least one school's coordinator has constructed a successful one via social media. It's a model that could be successfully duplicated at other schools.

Third time's the charm for Milwaukee's Rojstaczer
Third time's the charm, at least for Milwaukee-born and bred author Stuart Rojstaczer. Rojstaczer's third stab at writing a novel has been his most successful and the publication of "The Mathematician's Shiva," out now in paperback from Penguin, brings the Brew City boy home for a reading and signing next week at Boswell Books.

Urban Spelunking: Railway Exchange Building
Back in the 1970s, Usinger's used to sell a poster with a cartoon aerial view of Milwaukee. Across the bottom was the Milwaukee Convention and Visitors Bureau's trademarked phrase, "Old World Charm, New World Vigor." I don't remember if the Railway Exchange building, 229 E. Wisconsin Ave., was depicted on the poster, but it should've been. Designed by the daddy of the skyscraper William LeBaron Jenney, the red terra cotta-clad building has long been a fixture in Downtown Milwaukee, serving as a link to turn of the 20th century Brew City.

Little Amerricka amusement park provides good, old, inexpensive fun
Little Amerricka, in Marshall -- 20 miles northeast of Madison -- was a revelation when we discovered it recently. Of course, it's been there for years and is no secret, but we'd never made the trip before. There, we found fun at a refreshingly reasonable price.

Old McKinley School gets a hearing
In February, I wrote about the fact that the old McKinley School on 20th and Vliet is in danger of coming down. The details of that situation can be read here. The school is an unusual one in Milwaukee and deserves to be saved. Ald. Bob Bauman, in whose district the old school is located, has petitioned the city's Historic Preservation Commission for historic designation.

Down on The Farm: Hunger Task Force land feeds Milwaukee
In Franklin, just across 68th Street from the House of Correction there's a barn. Built in 1946, it's one heck of a barn. This attractive red and white marker of a rural Milwaukee past -- now part of Hunger Task Force's The Farm -- stands in stark contrast to the low, modern, blandness of the jail -- and its ominous razor-wire fences -- across the street. But the history of the two are intertwined.
