    A popular custard stand in Milwaukee — rumored to be the inspiration for Arnold's Drive-In on TV's "Happy Days" — says its employees must speak English on the job and can't take orders given in foreign languages. Ron Schneider, the owner of Leon's Frozen Custard, a family owned business since 1942, is standing by his 10-year-old policy, which only recently came to light among customers. "Hey, c'mon! It is America. We've spoken English for a long, long time. Any foreign language is going to be a problem," Schneider told Fox6Now.com. "What I'm trying to avoid is when people come up...

    Milwaukee Public Schools has included nearly a half million dollars for "Black Lives Matter" in its list of expenditures included the 2017 budget proposal it published in Wednesday's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Interestingly enough, the district plans to spend nearly as much on "Black Lives Matter" as it plans to spend on College Access Centers, Universal Driver Education, and Advanced Studies of World Languages. "We’re doing this work because national and local studies tell us young men of color in Wisconsin and Milwaukee are more likely to be represented disproportionally in the justice system and less likely to be represented proportionally...

    Two teenage girls from a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, school live streamed sex acts with a teenage boy while their classmates watched through Facebook Live at school, authorities said. Milwaukee Police have asked Facebook to hand over information from the account of a 14-year-old girl after saying two juvenile girls in the video could be charged with 'exposing a child to harmful material'. The 15-year-old boy was not listed as a suspect on the police warrant. An investigation into the incident was prompted in January after staff at Barack Obama School - which houses students in grades kindergarten through 12th - became...

Now the social justice groups Voces de la Frontera and the Coalition for Justice are circulating a petition calling for a law enforcement official other than Clarke to oversee public safety at Trump events in the Milwaukee area.

    An additional four Ariens employees have been terminated for not following break policy, according to a company spokesperson. In total, 11 employees of the Brillion company have been terminated over break policy and 14 have resigned over the issue. The workers, all Muslims, say the break policy interferes with prayer. In January, CEO Dan Ariens told employees the company would be enforcing the policy of two scheduled breaks lasting 10 minutes. The company said some non-Muslim workers had raised concerns about other employees taking unscheduled breaks to pray. Ariens said the company needed to address the issue to minimize the...

This, in theory, is very fixable stuff, and the mayor and his partners have been trying.

Interestingly, the citizens are urging the Republican governor to employ a rarely used statute to dispose of the same Democratic district attorney who launched at least two secret and politically driven John Doe investigations into Walker. “Our law in Wisconsin allows you to remove John Chisholm for cause. Cause includes malfeasance in office, neglect of duty or official misconduct. We have provided a dozen charges...

On Tuesday night outside the venue in Milwaukee where the GOP debate was being held, several hundred demontrators engaged in a partisan protest against Republicans. A few of the demonstrators set fire to the American flag, at which point, Milwaukee police officers moved in, extinguished the fire consuming the flag, and then did something quite unexpected; they reverently...

    Starting her day with a serious traffic accident was bad enough. But Joy McFarlin's run-in with two Milwaukee police officers was worse. Before it was over, this 75-year-old grandmother had been threatened repeatedly with jail, arrested, put in handcuffs, placed in a squad car and taken to a police station. The two cops had the notion based on witness statements that McFarlin was lying by insisting she, and not some mystery man, was driving her car at the time of the crash. They thought she was covering up for a guy who fled the accident scene.There was no such guy, she...

    Stoughton — Gov.

In other remarks Thursday, Walker said that he could appoint a new justice to the Wisconsin Supreme Court by the end of this week and that he also favored clearer rules on which bathrooms can be used by transgender students in public schools. Walker's administration announced last week it was delaying the five...

    The two authors [Dylan Bennett of the University of Wisconsin-Waukesha and University of Washington Ph.D. candidate Hannah Walker] construct their argument calling Walker a racist by observing that the city of Milwaukee is home to the largest concentration of black people in Milwaukee. As in many metropolitan areas, many of the suburbs surrounding Milwaukee “such as Brookfield and Waukesha” are chockablock with white residents. Thus, the white scholars contend, any effort to reduce the scope of government is racist even if — especially if — proponents of limited government never use any overtly racist language. “Governor Walker engages a strong,...

    (CNSNews.com) – Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger opposed the Catholic Church for decades because of its moral teachings and its theology in general, to the point that in 1960, when John F. Kennedy, a Catholic, ran for president, Sanger said if he were elected, she would “find another place to live.”Sanger (1879-1966), in her many writings and speeches, frequently attacked the Catholic Church, describing it as among the “arch-enemies to hinder the progress of enlightenment” and determined to destroy America’s “liberties” and establish its own “rules & dominion.”  In early July 1960, when then-Senator John F.

A couple of examples were offered Thursday when a delegation from the Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort met with the Journal Sentinel Editorial Board. One bill would require background checks on all gun sales. Another would prohibit...

The Vonnegutian tale appears in a petition filed Thursday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court by Dolgen, the parent company of a Dollar General on South 27th Street that hired Michael Ionetz as its manager in May 2010. One month on the job, Ionetz was charged with 22 counts of child pornography, Dolgen says.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel piece this week revealed Feingold took in more than $100,000 in speaking fees between February 2012 and June 2013, much of that money for discussions on the corrupting influence of money in politics. The Wisconsin GOP, however, believes Feingold, the godfather of campaign finance reform, has yet to reveal all of his earnings from speaking engagements before that period. “To...

Finally, three hours and six minutes after the assault was first reported, squad cars arrived, according to records obtained by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. A...

    The state Court of Appeals has reinstated Milwaukee's 75-year-old residency rule, which requires city employees to live within city limits. The District 1 Court of Appeals overturned a ruling by Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Van Grunsven, who in January 2014 ruled that a measure signed into law by Gov. Scott Walker applied uniformly to all local governments in the state. The state law, Van Grunsven said, removed the issue of residency from the scope of home rule authority. The city has for decades required that its employees to live within Milwaukee limits. But the law signed by Walker in...

    Sheriff David Clarke Jr. of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin One of America’s most popular sheriffs has issued a “wake-up call” for conservatives following the Supreme Court’s two landmark decisions on same-sex marriage and Obamacare. The way Sheriff David Clarke sees it, the wild horse has broken loose and is halfway out of the barn, threatening to trample the crops. If the court can redefine marriage and force people to buy health care from a private business, there is nothing it can’t do, said Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and frequent Fox News contributor. “The thing that bothers me...
