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.
So it rained. Washed all the toilet paper out of the trees along 15th Avenue and Oak Creek Parkway across the street and down the block from the high school some juveniles strung in them last week. But as I walked home from the Post Office today amidst wads of debris littering the ground, the lasting impression I have of them is sewage.
