5 questions for One Horse Towne
With feet firmly rooted in rock and roll, but with hands in American roots music and post-punk, Milwaukee's One Horse Towne plays down to Earth, gritty music.

Merged program at 81st Street School takes steps forward
When it comes to schools, communities often know best. Maybe not always, but often. And it looks like in the case of Eighty-First Street School - in the Cooper Park neighborhood on the city's West Side - that's the case.

Urban spelunking: St. Paul's tower speaks volumes without making a sound
Nothing beats a new perspective. That's part of the fun of climbing to the roofs and towers of local buildings - to get a fresh look at a familiar city. Those visits and climbs almost always also offer a different take on the building itself. Take St. Paul's Episcopal Church on the corner of Knapp and Marshall Streets, erected in 1883 to the plans of Edward Townsend Mix. I climbed its tower recently and got a new look at Milwaukee and St. Paul's.
