Allen leads Homestead football team to 24-20 victory over Arrowhead

Aug. 28, 2014 11:28 p.m. | Excited about it? Yes. The end-all and be-all for the season? Definitely not.

That was the attitude of the Homestead football players and coaches after they went into Taraska Stadium in Hartland Thursday night and, for the second season in a row, beat the two-time defending WIAA state D1 champs from Arrowhead, 24-20.

Everyone was on the same page afterward.

"It was a nice victory over a good team, but it doesn't make our season and we know we have a lot of work to do," said veteran coach Dave Keel.

"The first one felt great last year, it was a dog fight, and this one is a great feeling too," said all-state defensive lineman David Pfaff. "But we need to bring it home to Camp Randall this year (for a state championship). This is a building block to what we need to do to make that happen.

Bay boys soccer team opens NSC defense with 3-0 win over GT

Aug. 26, 2014 10:29 p.m. | Only when forward Joey Borris headed in midfielder Sean Garwood's perfect diagonal crossing pass into the far left corner of the net at the 79:45 mark of the second half against Germantown Tuesday night did Whitefish Bay boys soccer coach Jeff Worzella take a deep breath.

The goal gave the Blue Dukes a more comfortable 2-0 lead which was extended to 3-0 eight minutes later when the two teammates traded places, this time with Garwood scoring off of Borris' corner kick.

And so with the 3-0 victory, the defending North Shore Conference Blue Dukes opened up defense of their 2013 league championship on a positive note.

"Oh yeah," said Worzella of the importance of the second goal. "In a 1-0 game, amnything can happen, one mistake, one slip, and you're tied, especially against Germantown, which is a great team and which gave us a real battle. It was a physical game, but we were able to survive."

The victory improved the Blue Dukes to 3-0-1 on the season while the Warhawks fell to 1-2.

Shorewood man accused of voter fraud pleads insanity

Aug. 25, 2014 3:40 p.m. | A Shorewood man facing 13 counts of voter fraud has plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

Robert Monroe, a 50-year-old health insurance executive, is accused of casting two ballots in the April 2011 Supreme Court election between David Prosser and Joann Kloppenburg, two ballots in the August 2011 recall election between Alberta Darling and Sandy Pasch, five ballots in the Gov. Scott Walker recall election in June 2012, one illegal ballot in the August 2012 partisan primary election and two ballots in the 2012 presidential election, according to a criminal complaint.

Monroe will undergo a psychological evaluation on Sept. 16, and court proceedings in the voter fraud case will resume on Oct. 14, according to online court records.

Each of the 13 charges carries a maximum prison sentence of three years and six months, as well as a $10,000 fine. The investigation into Monroe's voting history was conducted in part under the auspices of a John Doe proceedings into Walker's campaign activity, according to the complaint.

Shorewood man charged with illegal voting enters insanity plea

Aug. 25, 2014 12:06 p.m. | A Shorewood man charged with illegally casting multiple votes in various elections, including five in the 2012 Wisconsin gubernatorial recall, has entered an insanity plea.

Robert L. Monroe, 50, will be examined next month by a forensic psychologist after entering a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect at a hearing on Friday. A report of the evaluation is due to be returned in October.

Monroe was charged in June with 13 counts of illegal voting, accused of casting multiple votes in four elections in 2011 and 2012 using addresses in Shorewood, Milwaukee and Indiana, the names of his son and his girlfriend's son in addition to his own.

The felony counts, which include providing false information to an election official and registering in more than one place, carry a total maximum penalty of up to 19 1/2 years in jail and a fine of $130,000.

Prosecutors in Milwaukee began investigating Monroe in early 2013 after the defendant's son, Benjamin Monroe, who was the initial suspect of the investigation, signaled that his father might have submitted a ballot "on his behalf" in the 2012 recall election.

New option emerges for Estabrook Dam problems

Aug. 24, 2014 11:39 a.m. | Milwaukee County officials are weighing a new option to address the aging Estabrook Dam, which has deteriorated to the point where the state has ordered that the Depression-era structure be repaired or torn down.

Officials are now considering constructing a structure of boulders and large rocks that they say could satisfy concerns of two competing constituencies:

■ It would be engineered to allow fish to have the run of the river by letting them swim over the top.

Environmentalists and angling groups are pushing for fish passage at Estabrook and would like to see the dam removed altogether to complement improvements in the river after removal of the North Ave. dam in 1997 and construction of a fish passage system at Thiensville in 2010.

■ It would also hold back water so motor boats could move over the river from near Hampton Ave. to north of Lincoln Park.

Whitefish Bay hands Lancers, Kennedy opening-night defeat

Aug. 22, 2014 10:33 p.m. | It was not the type of debut that Brookfield Central coach Jed Kennedy was hoping for Friday night, as Whitefish Bay dominated the Lancers and rolled to a 20-6 victory at Central in the season opener.

“The defense was on the field most of the game,” Kennedy said. “What did they have, 75 offensive plays? We have physical kids up front but they just didn’t play that way.”
 
An elated Whitefish Bay coach Jim Tietjen had an answer for that.

“I was concerned with all these new rules about our conditioning,” he said. “But I felt our kids were in better shape. We got after them. There were points early in the game I felt when we drove on them, they were tired.

“They got the big guys and the heat takes it toll on them. We’re not very big, but our kids rose to the occasion. We had some questions coming in and we answered them.”

After BC senior linebacker Matt Patterson sacked Bay quarterback Jake Fisher to stop the opening drive, the Blue Dukes stopped Central on a 3-and-out and put together a 10-play, 74-yard drive.

Whitefish Bay leads state in ACT scores

Aug. 21, 2014 6:01 p.m. | Whitefish Bay — Whitefish Bay High School's ACT scores have once again topped all other public schools in the state.

Whitefish Bay's Class of 2014 earned an average ACT score of 26.7, with 88.5 percent of students taking the test. Last year's senior class not only beat out the rest of the schools in the state, but also beat their predecesors in the Whitefish Bay Class of 2013, which led state public schools with an average ACT score of 26.

Whitefish Bay Superintendent Laura Myrah said the high school's most recent ACT score are in keeping with a long tradition of high test scores in the district.

"To our knowledge, we are the only public school district in Wisconsin that has scored above 25 on the ACT for 16 years in a row," Myrah said. "We attribute that success to our top-notch faculty up through all grade levels, our highly supportive and engaged families, and most obviously to our bright, hard-working students."

Not far behind Whitefish Bay was Homestead High School, where graduated seniors recorded the highest average ACT score in the history of the high school with a score of 26. Homestead ranked third among public schools in the state, tailing behind 26 by students from Williams Bay High School.

Mayoral race gets early start in Glendale

Aug. 15, 2014 4:07 p.m. | Glendale — It may only be August, but two candidates have already thrown their hats into the ring for the mayoral election in April.

The Glendale Clerk's Office has received declarations of candidacy from Fourth District Alderman Dick Wiese and Bryan Kennedy, who serves on the Glendale-River Hills School Board and the village's Fourth of July Committee.

Glendale has not held a mayoral election since former mayor Jerome Tepper resigned in February to be with his family in Virginia. Since Tepper's resignation, Common Council President JoAnn Shaw has served as acting mayor. The council recently decided to have Shaw continue in that role until April, when Tepper's term would have ended.

If no other candidates submit candidacy papers, Wiese and Kennedy will face off in a mayoral election on April 7. If more candidates enter the race, a primary election will have to be held on Feb. 17 to narrow the field down to two candidates, said Glendale Clerk Susanne Hanaman.

Although Wiese and Kennedy have both submitted their declarations of candidacy, they will not be able to start circulating nomination papers until December. Any candidates who want to appear on the spring 2015 ballot must submit their declaration of candidacy and nomination papers by Jan. 6.

Fatal shooting in Bayside eyeglass store

Aug. 14, 2014 4:40 p.m. | Fox Point — One of the men accused of robbing a Bayside optical store last week has been charged in the murder of one of his accomplices, who was shot by a store employee.

Tedric Sanders, 20, of Milwaukee, has been charged with felony murder in the death of 22-year-old Joshua Drake of Milwaukee. Sanders, Drake and three other people were allegedly involved in a deadly armed robbery at Innovative Optique, 333 W. Brown Deer Road, shortly after noon on Thursday, Aug. 14.

According to a criminal complaint, Drake, Sanders and another suspect entered the store wearing masks over their faces, pointing guns at store employees and asking, "Where's the money?" One of the employees, Federico Aguilar, shot at the suspects, killing Drake and injuring Sanders.

While Drake laid motionless on the floor, the other two suspects ran back into the silver Dodge Charger, where a driver and one other person were waiting. The vehicle was then involved in a hit-and-run accident on southbound I-43 before exiting at 11th Street and Highland Avenue to take Sanders to Sinai Samaritan Hospital for gunshot wounds.

If convicted on the felony murder charge, Sanders faces a maximum sentence of 35 years in prison. Felony murder charges can be issued against felony actors or co-actors when someone is murdered during the commission of a felony. Sanders has also been charged with bail jumping related to a recent incident in which Sanders fled from police during a robbery at Tower Optical in Wauwatosa.

Bublr bike-share coming to Shorewood

Aug. 13, 2014 12:30 p.m. | Shorewood — The Bublr bike-share stations that were introduced to downtown Milwaukee last week will eventually make their way up to Shorewood due to a federal grant approval.

Midwest BikeShare, the nonprofit operator of Bublr Bikes, expects to have 10 bike-sharing stations installed in downtown Milwaukee by the end of the month. The program is expected to offer an additional 25 to 35 stations with 200 to 300 bikes next year, eventually expanding to 100 stations with 1,000 bicycles across Milwaukee, Shorewood, West Allis and Wauwatosa in the next three to four years.

Kevin Hardman, the launch director of Bublr Bikes, said he is introducing the bike share program to other nearby suburbs where residents have expressed interest. Customers will be able to rent bikes from automated kiosks for $7 per day or $20 per month and return the bikes to any station.

"All of the places we've touched on are dense communities, so this offers another easy and convenient transportation choice," he said. "If you look at the north end of Oakland Avenue, for example, where parking is at a premium, bike sharing is wonderful because it gives people a choice that didn't exist before."

Shorewood will be home to nine bike share stations as proposed in a $398,607 federal grant that was recently acquired through the state's Department of Transportation. The federal grant covers 80 percent of the cost of the Shorewood stations, while the remaining 20 percent is borne locally.

Whitefish Bay latest to enact sex offender residency rules

Aug. 07, 2014 4:45 p.m. | Whitefish Bay has become the latest municipality in Milwaukee County to enact an ordinance imposing residency restrictions on registered sex offenders.

River Hills, Shorewood and Hales Corners are contemplating enacting ordinances as well.

If those villages pass ordinances, each community would have some form of residency restrictions for sex offenders.

The recent rush to restrict sex offenders appears to be a reaction to Milwaukee's new ordinance, which severely restricts the placement of registered sex offenders in the city. Mayor Tom Barrett, who with other city officials has said the city has had to house a disproportionate number of sex offenders compared with other municipalities, has called on the state Department of Corrections to come up with a statewide solution.

In River Hills, Village President Robert Brunner said the board would meet in September to discuss a residency restriction ordinance.

Aug. 01, 2014 1:26 p.m. | Mequon — Concordia University Wisconsin is opening up its campus to the community on Saturday, Aug. 9 for a night of food, music and a view of the lake from their restored bluff.
