Latona Pub Celebrates 30 Years

By Tan Vinh Bars come and go; few make it to 30 years like Latona Pub. Through all the drinking trends and gastropubs, Latona Pub hasn’t so much adapted to the changing times as it has remained true to its calling: Microbrew is its thing.

Is a Public-Private Partnership Appropriate to Renovate the Green Lake Community Center?

By Erica C. Barnett To the casual visitor, the problems plaguing Green Lake Community Center don’t immediately present themselves. Sure, there are a few big plastic buckets scattered to catch the drips that leak from the roof on rainy days, and some of the sagging ceiling tiles are held in place by painter’s tape. But what old building doesn’t have its share of minor issues? Look closer, however, and the cracks start to show. Some are literal—in the deck and…
