Milwaukee’s buy-local organization, Our Milwaukee, hosts a series of events and promotions this week to remind shoppers about the economic and cultural benefits of frequenting local businesses. Many of their points are mirrored in the 2005 documentary Independent America, which they’ll screen free tonight at 7 p.m. at the Times Cinema. The film follows a couple on the road as they attempt to visit mom-and-pop shops, only to find (as they obviously suspected) that many of them have been replaced by national retailers.

 

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
