A proposal is coming forward that would allow dogs on leashes on the riverwalk between the Clock Tower and Bethesda Park.
Dog lovers in Waukesha have few choices when it comes to taking their dogs to the park. The majority of the parks in the area ban the four-footed creatures. Minooka Park has a dog park, but that is on the southeast side of the community. It might come as a surprise to some dog walkers who take their pooch for a stroll through Frame Park and along the riverwalk. Dogs are frequently taken for walks or even go swimming in the Fox River. But it is against the city’s ordinances. But the city could open up a portion of the Riverwalk to leashed dogs. The Parks, Recreation and Forestry Department meets at 5:30 p.m. Monday to consider a proposal to allow dogs on a leash on the riverwalk between the Clock Tower through Bethesda Park. The meeting is …

Andrew Scalf catches a giant musky while fishing the Fox River in downtown Waukesha.
Eeek! Those who know me well know that my biggest fear in life is fish. I have a major fish phobia. Whether it’s swimming in a lake, swimming in an aquarium or not swimming at all and on a dinner plate, I stay as far away from those wriggling (or not wriggling in the case of the dinner plate) animals. Walks on Lake Michigan can sometimes leave me screaming and running down the beach as I see a fish who’s met its maker. And don’t even get me started on salmon platters… So checking my email this weekend gave me a frightening experience. Mark Stigler, Waukesha’s retired deputy police chief, sent me this picture and an explanation: Have heard of bass and carp being caught at the dam but a musky is very rare, especially one of this size. Andrew…

When runners begin the Trailbreaker Marathon run on Saturday in Waukesha, three of them will be continuing a tradition they've held since the beginning of the race. Only they've taken it to a different level.
For 71-year-old Lorraine Bunk, running in the Trailbreaker Marathon is all about reaching the finish line. “I just want to get to the finish line so I can say I have number 20 under my belt,” Bunk said. “It will it be fun. … Running comes from within. You never know what day you are going to have.” Unofficially, Bunk’s run the Trailbreaker Marathon route 20 times. But she’s officially run in 19 marathons.
