User Rating:  / 1

MTV's hit dance competition, "America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC)," has become a phenomenon for wannabe dancers in much the same way "American Idol" has lifted the hopes of vocalists around the country.

Capitalizing on ABDC's popularity, local nightclub "Wherehouse" (818 S. Water St.) will host "Milwaukee Meltdown: Dance Crew Competition," a four-week contest showcasing some of the Midwest's best dance teams.

Starting this week, competitions will be held each Thursday night at the club until a winning team is announced at the July 28 finale.

The final round of competition will feature performances by Enigma Dance Kru from Season One of ABDC and Milwaukee native and world traveler, rapper Juiceboxxx.

"Milwaukee Meltdown" begins at 10 p.m. and is hosted by local break dancing specialist "Mijo" of Motion Disorderz Dance Crew - the winner of the 2010 BC1 Red Bull Cypher One Break Dancing Championship. Cover is $7.

  • For local entrepreneur Angela Smith, opening a restaurant has been a dream of hers since she and her husband were first married 23 years ago.  They dabbled in the catering business, but a restaurant -- that's a huge step up. The biggest barrier was money -- getting a loan with not-so-perfect credit is hard enough, let alone everything else you need to learn to get up and running So they put it off.  For more than two decades. But in the last few years, as the kids went away to college, she and her husband, Bennie, got the itch again.  It was finally time to open that restaurant. And that's what she turned to the Wisconsin Women's Business Initiative Collaborative for help. She enrolled in classes geared toward new entrepreneurs, got help developing her business plan, and finally, applied for a loan through WWBIC.  It was an exhaustive process, but worth it, she says. Today, Daddy's Soul Food & Grille,754 N. 27th St., is pumping out fried chicken, greens, black-eyed peas, mac and cheese, and peach cobbler.  But most rewarding of all, Angela says, the restaurant gives residents a place to sit down and enjoy some true home cooking.

  •   Since 1923, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards have recognized the talent of our nation's youth, celebrating our creative teens and providing them with new opportunities. 300,000 students from across America submitted original works to Scholastic's 2015 program, hoping to be recognized for their art, writing, photography and contribution to film.   In the Milwaukee area, 174 entries were recognized just in the writing category alone, earning awards in categories like science fiction, poetry, essays and journalism. "They were giving scores for technical skills, creativity and how the stories and poems flowed," said Dasha Kelly, host of the Southeastern Wisconsin Scholastic Writing Awards Ceremony at the Stackner Cabaret Theater "It's an opportunity to celebrate these writers and the work they typically do huddled up in their room with a laptop, with no one else around."   Check out the story above to hear more from Nicolet High School senior Jessica Plotkin, who not only took home silver and gold awards for her writing that night, but the prestigious Gold Key award for the region. After, she went onto Nationals where she won an American Authors award, also won by writers Sylvia Plath and Truman Capote.    play pause stop mute unmute previous next ScholasticWritingAwards.mp3

  • Has this ever happened to you? Sitting at your desk, hard at work and suddenly...thud. How about at home? You know how terrible it is to look over there is a stunned little birdie on the ground? Or worse? There are some really cheap and easy steps you can take to help birds avoid flying into your windows. The Wisconsin Humane Society's WINGS program has tips on how you can help save our little feathered friends. It's as easy as removing plants on your windowsill or putting up reflective window clings. It's estimated that 900,000+ birds die each year from window collisions. We are in a major migratory path here in Southeastern Wisconsin, so it happens a lot. Check out the story above to hear from animal lover Julie and how simple it was for her to save the birds that were crashing into her second story work window.

  •   Who cares for the injured, sick or orphaned wild animals in Southeastern Wisconsin? Thanks to the folks at the Wisconsin Humane Societies' Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, 5,000+ animals get a second chance to return to their lives in the wild.   "We've got a lot of little baby animals that are orphaned," says Scott Diehl, Wildlife Director at WHS's Wildlife Rehab Center. "We will raise these little ones till they're full size and eventually release them." Diehl says the center is also a great resource for people looking for wildlife information. "We have a wealth of information on our website about common situations. What do you do if you find a baby cottontail, a juvenile injured bird." In fact, the Rehab Center logs in over 12,000 calls each year from folks looking for information to help the little creatures they find.   The WHS Rehab Center is here to advocate for the animals and show us how we can live side by side, even with the peskiest of raccoons. "We get to root causes, to get people to understand why animals are doing what they are doing," says Diehl. "We find biologically sound and ethical ways to help create long term solutions".   The Rehab Center couldn't help all these animals year after year without their team of amazing volunteers.
