Bradford teammates recall Gordon and Waynes

If all goes as expected, Melvin Gordon and Trae Waynes will be joining an exclusive club on Thursday night.

GROCERIES: ‘Fresh’ trumps ‘cheap’ in 2015


What makes a supermarket great? Years ago, says Consumer Reports, the answer might have been low prices, checkout speed or variety. Now another consideration is top-of-mind: “fresh.”

When the typical shopper makes each of his or her 83 yearly grocery trips (running up an annual tab of about $5,400), he or she is demanding a wider than ever choice of healthy, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, as well as more organics and local produce. The clamor for “fresh” also extends to freshly prepared meals that can be taken home. So when Consumer Reports did its annual supermarket survey, it asked readers to rate their grocers on traditional characteristics such as service and cleanliness — but also asked them to rate the selection of local produce and the price of organics at their stores.

Tobacco products put an unnecessary burden on the pocketbooks and health of their users. Unfortunately, the report notes that teen use of e-cigarettes tripled and they’re just a new nicotine delivery method.

Orson Welles — whose 100th birthday is coming up on May 6 — is Kenosha’s most famous native son.

But that doesn’t mean Kenoshans know everything (or even very much) about the man who gained international fame as a writer, producer, actor and director. His most memorable achievement was his film “Citizen Kane,” which regularly tops lists of the greatest movies ever made.


Today's Poll

The Urban Land Institute's recommendation for redevelopment of the former Chrysler property, unveiled Friday, calls for creation of a small-business innovation center, along with sites for small-business and manufacturing development and indoor and outdoor sports fields. What do you think of this plan?
It sounds like a solid proposal.
More industrial uses on the former factory site? No thank you.
The plan should involve housing, too.
Cut the sports fields. Kenosha already has enough of them.
All of this land should be restored as green space. Kenosha needs a central-city oasis.
