Unready for inspiring story to end, Bucks push Bulls to Game 6

Published April 28, 2015

Maybe these Milwaukee Bucks are just too young to know any better. Maybe the 3-0 deficit removed the fear factor and simply allowed them to play with a "Nothing to lose" attitude. Maybe this team is so vastly improved from last year's 15-67 debacle that it's simply better than anyone can believe.

And for those at Miller Park with a more conventional hunger to satisfy, the Brewers' stomping grounds added plenty of new offerings to their culinary lineup this year. As OnMilwaukee.com's resident culinary crash dummy, I took it upon myself to sample the new foods. Here is part one of my findings.

Sports and music truly play it forward

Published April 2, 2015

Pro soccer player returns to Northcott to start youth soccer club

Published Feb. 3, 2015

Eferin Burns Sr., played many sports as a kid thanks to his mother's support, so he thinks it is only right that his two sons, ages 10 and 11, have the same opportunities. That's why, in this report from the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service, Burns recently brought them to the Northcott Neighborhood House, 2460 N. 6th St., to try out for the Milwaukee Simba SC Jimmy Banks Futsal League.
