Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service reporters covered a wide range of stories in 2017. NNS reporter Elliot Hughes explains why this story, originally published on Dec. 21, is his favorite among those he wrote this year.
Laura Sue Mosier, 58, co-owns the Schuster Mansion Bed & Breakfast in the Concordia neighborhood. Her annual effort to donate warm clothing outside of the B&B recently hit a snag, because somebody has been stealing the clothing and selling it to people in the neighborhood.
Called together by activist Andre Lee Ellis, community leaders gathered at the intersection of 12th and Concordia streets Wednesday in response to the death of Joseph N. Blunt, 16, who was thrown from the hood of a moving vehicle at the same intersection the day before, to make a plea to the public to drive with care.
