Highland Community School's China trip is now "officially" complete
When Mayor Tom Barrett visited Highland Community School on Monday to welcome home a group of adolescent students from China, the trip -- according to the students themselves -- wasn't officially over yet. Today, it is officially complete.

Urban spelunking: The Iron Block Building
This year, Dental Associates completed its restoration of the Iron Block Building -- actually a pair of connected buildings dating from 1860 and 1899 -- and the work put a gorgeous new luster on one of Downtown's most aged landmarks. As Milwaukee's only iron-facade building, it's a real Milwaukee gem. To look at the historic Iron Block Building on the corner of Water and Wisconsin now, you'd be hard-pressed to believe it almost didn't survive.

Crowds queue to see the holiday spectacular at Radio City Music Hall and Times Square is decked out in green and red. And all America comes to check it out.

Featured chef: Blue Jacket's Justice Neal
Few likely know the idea of farm to table better than new Blue Jacket chef Justice Neal. Neal, after all, went from farm to table himself, having grown up on 40 acres near Beloit. Recently, Neal, who served as the restaurant's sous, was promoted to replace departing chef Matt Kerley, who had run the kitchen at Blue Jacket since 2013. Since he's already launched a new menu, we decided it was time to check in with him about his work in the kitchen.

Urban spelunking: The Walker's Point middle school that could've been
One of the most recent building "booms" at Milwaukee Public Schools added a handful of new schools to the city's landscape, but at least one planned project -- and perhaps more -- never saw the light of day.

Famous surnames aside, Wainwright Roche's is an important voice in modern folk
Serious music fans will relate. Though a lot of music enters my ears, very few make the kind of impression that Lucy Wainwright Roche's 2013 record, "There's A Last Time For Everything," made on me. A year later I can tell you exactly where I was when I first popped it into the CD player and sat transfixed, unable to move. Lucy Wainwright Roche comes to Milwaukee next week, and we talked to her about it.

6 Milwaukee record shops I miss
I've been a record store rat since I was about 9 (no, I won't tell you how many years ago that was), but I've whiled away countless hours in the dens of wonder, from sea to shining sea and even beyond. Luckily, there are still some great record shops in town, but not nearly as many as there used to be. Here are six lost Milwaukee places that I wish were still here ...

Urban spelunking: Charles Allis Art Museum
The building that houses the Charles Allis Art Museum, 1630 E. Royall Pl., on Milwaukee's East Side was designed and built as a home, but in a sense it's also always served as an art museum. Built by a captain of industry, Charles Allis, the house -- designed by Alexander Eschweiler and built in 1909 -- was planned as more than a home for Eschweiler and his wife, Sarah. It was meant to be a showplace for their ever-growing collection of art.

Ultra-modern East Library reaches the home stretch
Despite a few half-finished walls and the shell, there was little to see but drawings and a few nascent details. A quick peek last month showed quite a bit of progress, but nothing quite like how the place looked when we got a tour last week from branch manager Rachel Collins.

1913 hurricane laid a trail of destruction across the Great Lakes
Though we all remember the 2010 "once in a lifetime" storm that caused terrible flooding around the Milwaukee area, few of us have seen anything like the dramatic 1913 Great Lakes hurricane, which toppled ships, killed hundreds sailors - and folks on shore, too - from Lake Superior and Lake Michigan to Lake Huron. Thanks to Milwaukee author Michael Schumacher we can learn more about the four-day storm that raged through the Great Lakes, including Milwaukee, in November 1913.

A peek inside an 1890's Milwaukee high school

Getting high: 19 Milwaukee rooftop views
Once, a reader suggested setting my sites on Milwaukee's rooftops. I admit I didn't immediately see the allure. But after spending a couple years climbing up every flight of stairs that has presented itself, I've risen to challenge and peered out across Milwaukee from a number of rooftops. Here are just a few of them.
