    Wauwatosa NOW ^ | 9-1-15 | Rachel Minske
    After an early morning brush with crime, a Wauwatosa city official is giving thanks to the officers who halted a potentially dangerous situation. Shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sept. 1, Alderman John Dubinski awoke to strange noises coming from outside his home in the 7900 block of Milwaukee Avenue. Dubinski said he looked out his window to see five individuals outside on his driveway, near his family's two vans. Suspects were inside each of the family's vehicles, two females were standing in the driveway "acting as lookouts" and a third was "holding a handgun in the ready position," Dubinski said. "He...

    About two weeks before Gov. Scott Walker is expected to announce his presidential bid, neighbors welcomed him at a lawn party along the East Tosa Gran Prix bike race route in Wauwatosa Sunday, June 28. Walker flew in the night before the race from the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. During a short stay in Wauwatosa, he said he mowed the lawn at his house where his parents live, and came to the bike race to spend time with friends. "Here, we're just Scott and Tonette, not the governor and first lady," Walker said. Walker says Tosa will 'always be...

    Nothing is more obnoxious than calling someone a liar just because they disagree with you. Unless of course, it is true. And it is getting harder and harder to describe the recent black mob violence near Milwaukee without using the word L-word aimed directly at reporters and public officials who ignore, deny and try to wish it away. The latest case happened Saturday night in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa. Every year, they have a Tosa Fest, complete with ring tosses, pretzel booths, and this year, a free outdoor movie, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs II. It is supposed...

    WAUWATOSA Demonstrations rarely get more intimate than this. About 20 protesters gathered outside Gov. Scott Walkers Wauwatosa home Tuesday and chanted a gender neutral message, so to speak: Focus on jobs, not our vaginas. The demonstration was in response to a Republican-led bill that would require any woman wanting an abortion to first have an ultrasound. One thing I know you wont find in womens vaginas is 250,000 jobs, said Jennifer Epps-Addison, referencing Walkers 2010 campaign pledge to create a quarter-million jobs in his first term. Democrats have derided the governor for, to date, falling well short of that...

    Wauwatosa - Tonette Walker delivered a message straight from husband Gov. Scott Walker on Saturday, telling supporters not to be ruled by anger and assuring them that Republican reforms are working. "The other side has had a voice for over a year, but it's now time for us to speak up," Tonette Walker said during a rally at Hart Park. For about three hours, a large crowd stood on packed snow and ice to show they were standing with the governor during the first large Republican rally of the recall season. A coalition of Democrats, unions and a grass-roots organization...

    A melee at a Kmart store in Wauwatosa Saturday morning was started by a computer glitch. The store was running a promotion in which it would give away $10 to anyone applying for its credit card, but the computer glitch led to everyone's application being granted -- bestowing up to $4,000 in instant credit to anyone who applied even if they shouldn't have qualified. Once word started to spread about the so-called "free money" Saturday, witnesses said things got pretty nuts inside the Wauwatosa store. "They were having a big fight. Two ladies was jumping a lady over credit cards,"...

    WILL HE EVER STOP? by Timothy Rollins, Editor and Publisher March 29, 2006 In an effort to once again advance his own agenda, Michael McGee Jr. goes on camera calling for enhancer penalties for those who commit crimes against black men, calling them an 'endangered species.' These outrageous comments call for an in-depth analysis to expose McGee as self-serving.We begin with the mortality rate of black men nationwide between ages 15 and 44, and we do not limit it to Milwaukee. The NUMBER ONE cause of death for these young black males is not tuberculosis, AIDS, accidents or influenza. The...

    MILWAUKEE, WI State Representative Leah Vukmir (R- Wauwatosa) issued the following statement on John Kerry's running mate's visit to Milwaukee. "John Kerry is ranked the Senate's most out of the mainstream member, but he came to Wisconsin a few weeks ago and said 'life begins at conception,' talked about his shot gun, and claimed to embrace 'conservative values.' He even explained his vote for the Northeast Dairy Compact by saying he was trying to help his Massachusetts constituents despite the fact that he proposed expanding the price controls to regions across the country. Wisconsinites aren't going to trust someone who...
