Family lured Jerrianne and her husband to South Milwaukee in 2002 from Southern California where she worked as, first, a journalist, then, as a court information officer. She now stays busy with media-relations consulting, playing with her three grandchildren (part of the lure), writing, discovering her new environs, and hoping her garden will produce before the first fall frost.
Here's a lawsuit I didn't know about:
South Milwaukee — The city is fighting racial discrimination allegations over its attempts to raze an apartment complex in a case that is about to go to trial in federal court.
City officials maintain that their opposition to the Lake Bluff Apartments stems from the fact that they were built illegally.
It'll be interesting to see how it turns out. Even more important is how much this is costing the city -- i.e. you and me.
