New Kid's View

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.

We're All Community Together

E.W. Luther, fundraiser, PTO, raffle, unfunder

E.W. Luther Elementary School's fundraising raffle last night was a superlative success in two ways -- and maybe a lot more. But at least two significant ways.

One, it raised $2,200 -- net. That's a lot for a relatively small school in a modest-sized city and being in the midst of a crippling recession.

Two, it showed that community works!

Huge kudos go out to many people -- the organizers; the volunteers; the parents, studemts, other relatives, neighbors and friends, the teachers, the PTO which sponsored the event, and the many local businesses -- all of whom made the fundraiser such a success.

The proceeds will pay for otherwise unfunded or underfunded programs, materials and equipment.
