Practically Speaking

Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.

Mark your calendar for the Elmbrook Historical Society's 18th Annual Civil War Days Encampment at the Dousman Stagecoach Inn Museum on Saturday, May 5th and Sunday, May 6th. The historic Dousman Inn, outbuildings, and grounds are located at 1075 Pilgrim Parkway (north of Blue Mound Rd.) in Brookfield. Park for free nearby at Pilgrim Park Middle School at 1500 Pilgrim Parkway and take the shuttle to the Inn.

The 2 day event, 10am - 4pm (both days), includes craftsmen, soldier camps, skirmish, cannon fire, President Lincoln, fashion show, worship service, and more! (We had quite an interesting conversation about President Lincoln with the embalmer at a past encampment.) Check the schedule for times and events.
