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.
Sure hope you can listen tomorrow-- Tuesday, Nov. 19 -- when Milwaukee Public Radio station WUWM's "Lake Effect" airs my essay, "The Horror of Civil War Re-enactment," as part of its observance of the 150th anniversary of "The Gettysburg Address"! It will be live-streamed during its 10 a.m. broadcast at http://wuwm.com/listen. It will be archived and accessible for post-broadcast listening. I'll post the link when it becomes available.
