For 20 years, the Shepherd Express has had Milwaukeeans weigh in on the city’s best food, shopping, arts, nightlife, politicians and personalities for the annual Best of Milwaukee awards, the city’s longest-running readers’ choice poll. The results of this year’s vote will run in next week’s issue, but they’ll be announced first at a Tuesday night award ceremony and party that, as always, is open...

I did not watch this episode with Dr. Oz (I didn't know it was on), but I read the summary and plan to look for it online. In my previous blog regarding Oprah's earlier show in May with Brian Weiss, I mentioned that I had been greatly helped by undergoing several past life regressions. Since Oprah's most recent show was specific to Phobias, I have decided to share my personal experience regarding...

Once again, our friend at Newsradio 620 WTMJ (a subsidiary of Journal Communications) gets the story wrong. On Monday morning, while commenting on the state budget, Charlie Sykes “reported” that the Shepherd Express was designated by the state Legislature as the “paper of record” for the Milwaukee area. First of all, there is no such thing as a “paper of record for the Milwaukee area.” ...

A community arts celebration

Behind a sparse storefront on bustling National Avenue rests a purely collective artistic endeavor in Walker’s Point Center for the Arts. The focus here is to celebrate the unique cultures of the city and give an outlet for mostly local artists to showcase their works to an appreciative community. The small gallery has two rooms of hardwood floors that give the space a rustic, cozy feel. The natural light that peers in through the large front...

At UW-Milwaukee

This small gallery located in UWM's Mitchell Hall is perhaps the finest link that the Eastside has to Milwaukee's bygone eras. With a strong focus on the preservation of local historical artworks, UWM's Art History Gallery walls are usually flush with work from local artists, if not historians, with a keen eye for highlighting the changing face...

Notably missing from this week's Shepherd Express cover story on rockabilly: Any real discussion of the music itself. I was admittedly less interested in actual rockabilly music than exploring the related culture and values, and how those long-held rockabilly traditions have shaped the structure and even the economy of the Bay View neighborhood. But I understand that it's s...

The Shepherd Sex Survey returns

We all know sex sells, so it isn’t too surprising that the Shepherd Express’ Sex Survey is one of the paper’s most popular issues. This year the biannual survey returns with a slew of new questions about your sexual habits, preferences and values. And while we all want to know about the more lurid details of your sex life...

South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse monument and wi

Summertime road trips of 700-some miles into South Dakota, the Badlands and the Black Hills seem like a rite of passage. This is the most classic of vacations, especially for families, who follow typically flat and easy-to-drive I-90 for a glimpse of the Wild West. They encounter Shady Brady hats and jackalopes...

Don’t tarnish Clinton’s legacy

As the Democrats convene in Denver to celebrate Hillary Clinton and nominate Barack Obama, a tiny minority of her supporters continues to behave petulantly. They whine, they bluster, they agitate. But what is it about Sen. Clinton’s repeated endorsements of her former opponent that they cannot understand?
