Free People, Madewell and C. Wonder are among the retail chains that are considering opening their first Milwaukee-area stores at The Corners development planned for the Town of Brookfield.

As soon as this August, residents could be walking on a new off-road asphalt pathway on the north side of Juneau Boulevard, from Highland Drive to west of the railroad tracks in Elm Grove.
The Elm Grove Village Board on Feb. 24 awarded a $271,695 contract for construction on the Juneau pathway.
The winning bid, from Blaze Landscape Contracting of Menomonee Falls, was about $71,000 lower than the lowest bid the village received in June, when the only two bids for the project came in higher than expected.
At that time, the village decided to rebid the project in the winter to attract contractors before their schedules for the year were full.
In the meantime, village workers started doing preparation work for the project, which Village Manager Dave De Angelis said brought down the cost of the project, and therefore resulted in lower bids.» Read Full Article

If only a game of catch could solve all of life’s problems.
That’s all it took for Brookfield East head coach Michael Goodman to get sophomore forward Mariah Miller going in Friday night’s 45-38 win over visiting Sussex Hamilton (8-3).
It was an unusual sight as Miller took a spot on the bench early in the first quarter and Goodman walked over with a basketball. When play resumed, the pair tossed it back and forth for a moment, then Goodman said a few words and turned back to the action.
“Catch the ball,” Goodman said. “That’s all I said. She dropped it a few times on the first possessions there, but her matchup was something we highlighted going in. She had 22 points the last time we played them — they don’t have a girl inside who can cover her.”
Miller finished a game-high 18 points as the Spartans avenged a 60-41 loss to Sussex on Jan. 17.» Read Full Article
