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.
My reminisces about the year I drove a float in the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, will air on WUWM's Lake Effect, Saturday, Dec. 22, sometime between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. and again Sunday, Dec. 23, during the same hour. WUWM is Milwaukee's NPR station, 89.7 FM, and live-streams online at www.wuwm.com.
If you're interested in listening but can't tune in either of those days, the station archives Lake Effect programs. I'll post the link to that archived segment after the program airs.
