A Shepherd Q&A with Fighting Bob Fest speaker Phil Donahue

Phil Donahue is angry. Sure, Donahue is still the warm, witty and generous man who interviewed thousands of guests as the host of "Donahue," which revolutionized TV talk shows by including the audience in each discussion.

Plus Winners and Jerks of the Week

Even more people have been injured or killed by repeat drunken drivers this past week. The recent tragedies included a crash at Sheboygan’s Brat Days, in which four people were injured by a drunken 21-year-old from Manitowoc who was sentenced to serve time in jail for previous drunken driving convictions, plus a death and injury caused by a Pewaukee man who already has four drunken driving convictions.

Celebrating 70 years of New Deal urban planning

The leafy suburb of Greendale is one of the most distinctive communities in the Milwaukee area. Even the most casual visitor will notice the differences between Greendale—with its mix of charming but affordable single- and multiple-family residences and well-thought-out village center—and the typical car-centric American suburb.

This Week in Milwaukee

HEALTH @ The Borg Ward Collective, 7 p.m., Thursday. Partnered with the Canadian electronic duo Crystal Castles, HEALTH recorded one of last year’s sharpest singles, the disorient ing, Orwellian “Crimewave.” Left to their own devices, though, the Los Angeles group is more of a conventional noise-rock band than that dark dance track suggests, heavy on rusty guitars and cacopho nous drums.

Tonight @ Borg Ward

All grinding guitars, discount-Casio beats, disorganized clatter, disembodied blips and nasally call-and-response shouts, Los Angeles’ The Mae Shi revel in their art school obnoxiousness, spinning it against the odds into hooky gold. Rising stars on the Internet, where their clever music videos give them a visual edge...
