Largest city in Wisconsin, United States
The legislative maps that Wisconsin Republicans drew a decade ago are still standing. But an effort that started in a Milwaukee teahouse and snowballed all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court very well could have changed the whole game of redistricting — in Wisconsin and nationwide.

The Milwaukee Bucks are back in action on Tuesday night as they take on Kevin Durant, James Harden, and the Brooklyn Nets to kick off the NBA season, and after the highly anticipated ring night ceremonies there's going to be some epic basketball played between these two teams. To that end, Rohan Katti and Ti Windisch collaborated with Matt Brooks, host of The Clear Out podcast covering all things Nets on the Blue Wire podcast network and a writer covering the team for Nets Daily, to break down how Milwaukee and Brooklyn have changed since their intense seven-game series, how the teams match up against each other now, and how they think the game will go. The ever-fun "does anything matter if Giannis Antetokounmpo's jumper turns out to be real" conversation snuck its way in there, as did some slight conversation about the Net-who-shall-not-be-named. It's an enjoyable listen ahead of another clash between these two rivals. Check out Matt on Twitter and subscribe to The Clear Out wherever you listen to the Gyro Step and Win in 6!

Austin-based guitarist, songwriter, and vocalist Carl “Buffalo” Nichols wants to remind folks of the value of the blues as a cultural art form. “Listening to this record, I want more Black people to hear themselves in this music that is truly theirs.” The self-described music nerd considers Delta blues, Chicago blues, West African Malian guitar rhythms, and the African ancestry of the clawhammer banjo in his sonic experimentation and ongoing study of chords and riffs. Nichols, who lived in Milwaukee for most of his life save for his overseas travels, is Fat Possum Records' first blues signing in nearly 20 years and “is grateful to be part of the label's legacy of blues music that also includes Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside,” (Austin Monthly). For his remote performances, Buffalo Nichols wields both a hollow body Fender guitar and a resonator-style guitar, as he plays tunes from his self-titled record. - Caryn Havlik Set list: “These Things”, “How to Love,” “Lost and Lonesome” “These Things”: “How to Love”: “Lost and Lonesome”:

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Brewers reporter Tom Haudricourt and host JR Radcliffe look back at the disastrous finish to the 2021 season, with the offense disappearing in a four-game series loss to the Atlanta Braves. Just how high should fans' concern level be that Christian Yelich has lost whatever magic he had? Will Josh Hader be back in 2022, and are we sure he's happy in Milwaukee? What are some of the more intriguing roster decisions on the horizon? Did we learn anything from the postseason press conference with David Stearns (and are we still confident he remains as Brewers general manager with Mets rumors persisting)?

What's New in the 303: Deb Connelly, Running Hall of Fame, Denver Athletic Club Deb Conley started running for the first time the summer before attending the University of Colorado at Boulder. She ran just to run with a new boyfriend. Like three miles. A couple of months later she walked on to CU's cross country team and has been running ever since. And just recently, she was inducted into the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. Wow. She never played sports growing up, never ran, never did anything but work and go to school. In this video interview, Deb expresses a surprised happiness after being selected for the Colorado Running Hall of Fame. But she also shares something vulnerable; how running in college was the first time she ever experienced feeling truly happy. Whats not really discussed, is the rocky and almost impossible path she took to get here. If you knew Deb in high school you probably would never have foreseen her making the Colorado Running H.O.A. But like 99% of her classmates, I had no idea how hard her life was until we reconvened about this honor almost 40 years later. My high school experience differed greatly from Deb's even though we both went to Wheat Ridge and graduated in 1983. I played sports, didn't work, had a car, stayed busy with practices and homework and hanging out with friends. Admittedly, I led the “Leave it Beaver” lifestyle (yes I'm dating myself), like a good chunk of my fellow “Farmers” (our mascot). Deb, living just a few miles away lived in poverty. Her mom forged her birth certificate when she was 13 so she could work. Her bed was an old army cot. They had no refrigerator and the house was in disrepair. Her parents didn't want her to go to college but rather help with the other kids. There was no modeling of “success” or “ambition” in her home. Yet she excelled at school and knew she had to figure out a way to go to college. She admittedly didn't understand true happiness and felt lonely. Her friend and fellow classmate, Chris Tomlinson, one of the few who knew of Deb's tough childhood said, “she was very smart, but seemed anxious and isolated. It seemed touch and go for her.” Wendy Koenig A middle distance runner, Wendy Koenig competed seven times for the United States in international dual meets. She was a three-time AIAW Champion, in 1975 in the 880 yards, and in 1976 at both 800 and 1,500 metres. Koenig also won three AAU titles, outdoors in the 1973 880 and in 1976 in the 1,500, and indoors in the 1979 800. On 24 March 1973, she set one of the very early world records for the 400 hurdles with 59.08, the first woman to run the event under one minute. Koenig ran for Colorado State University, and competed at the 1972 Olympics as Wendy Koenig and the 1976 Olympics as Wendy Knudson. Personal Bests: 440y – 54.60 (1975); 800 – 1:59.91 (1976); 1500 – 4:21.80 (1976); Mile – 4:47.7i (1976); 3000 – 9:49.0 (1976); 2 Miles – 10:34.0 (1976); 100H – 14.8 (1971); 400H – 59.08 (1973); HJ – 5-5 [1.65] (1974); LJ – 19-10¾i [6.06] (1979); Pen - 4167 (1971). Utah's Unique Mountain Bike Hut System Unites a Group of Colorado Cyclists Posted on October 12, 2021 By Bill Plock In south central Utah surrounded by National Parks, ancient river beds and views of what was once the floor of a great sea bed, lies a system of huts sheltering mountain bikers as they wind through the Escalante Plateau. The area, more than twice the size of Rhode Island is bordered by Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef National Parks and Lake Powell. It offers a huge variety of terrain tempting all levels of cyclists to explore the high deserts, deep canyons, daunting plateaus and sandy washout basins. Coming from Colorado, a beautiful drive takes you from Green River, Utah southwest to the town of Escalante where the 190 mile Aquarius Trail Hut System ends. When you arrive, someone from Aquarius takes you and your bike West to Brian Head where the adventure begins. The “huts” are shipping containers repurposed and carved up to make sleeping accommodations and a kitchen for 12 cyclists. As Jared Fisher, owner of Escape Adventures, who dreamed up this hut system says, “It's like putting together a lego house. It takes four containers to make a “hut” and we cut them, install windows and doors and add the bunks and appliances.” The huts are “off the grid” operating by solar and propane complete with compostable toilets and showers. When all the expenses are accounted for, a hut will cost about $200,000 to build and install. They are serviced by staff each day bringing in fresh food, linens, and fuel. Scattered on the Escalante Plateau National Monument, the huts are a welcome reprieve from some challenging days on single track and dirt roads taking riders up epic climbs to amazing views. They are fully stocked with gourmet food, snacks, beverages, water, showers and everything to make it as comfortable as possible. Guest can cook on the grills outside and cozy up to fire pits to take the high desert chill away. The group I joined is mostly from Colorado and gather once in a while at destinations like this. They had a sag truck to carry some provisions and the group dog. All seemed to love the hut and the route and the abundance of food and snacks. Said one rider, “they even have Peanut M&M's” which seemed to be an important provision. The daily routes are between 25 and 40 miles with options for longer treks to scenic spots. After the group breakfast, riders had all day to make it to the next hut and when possible the sag truck would park somewhere in between with refreshments. Said Jeff Oehm of Lakewood, “The huts are well thought out and stocked with good food and comfortable beds. The trails and roads were great and very challenging in places. This part of Utah is stunning and so uncrowded, was well worth the drive from Denver.” Fisher's company provides destination, endurance oriented travel experiences all over the world and discovered this area about 10 years. He lives in Las Vegas, operates three bike shops and has built a company revolving around the bike. It took a while to get the permits to start installing the huts and connecting the trails. He said, “Covid actually helped push this project to the finish as the Forest Service was able to re-evaluate the situation and we got approval last year. This is our first year of operations and it's gone very well. We have accommodated over 500 cyclists this summer. Any tour operator would be happy with that I think.” The experience can be customized to accommodate a private group or open to a single rider with a variety of diets and food preferences. They also have bikes, and e-bikes for rent.

When he was in high school, Pat Connaughton was offered a couple million dollars from the New York Yankees to forgo college and join their minor league system. He turned it down. Instead, he chose to continue pursuing his dream of playing basketball, went on to play both baseball and basketball at The University of Notre Dame, and now is an NBA Champion. Duncan and Pat grew up together, played for the same AAU program in New England, and are close friends to this day, so Duncan got to witness that entire journey first-hand. In this fantastic sit-down, the guys talk about what a new season is like coming off of a championship, Milwaukee battling adversity in the playoffs, the ‘revenge series' against the Heat, and how the media narrative changes for Giannis after becoming a champion. They then dive into Pat's impact on winning games, his defensive approach, and favorite in-game dunks. The discussion then turns to Pat's early days as a baseball standout, being a dual-athlete in college, getting drafted in both the MLB and NBA, and wraps up with Pat's off-court endeavors, including his real estate business and foundation supporting youth sports. Before all of that, Duncan and Davis breakdown the Ben Simmons & Kyrie Irving off-season drama, talk about the new Wilson basketball and why it is so different from Spalding, and Duncan shouts out his Boston Red Sox.

This week, we spent so much of our time breaking down the playoffs, we completely forgot our other mission, to talk about TV! The Red Sox-Rays series was a barnburner. Congratulations Ben on his Red Sox advancing to the ALCS in dramatic fashion and sorry to the rest of us on having to watch a Red Sox-Astros ALCS. In the other ALDS, the Astros proved they're laser-focused on proving their championships aren't tainted, and beat the White Sox into submission, robbing us of the potential of a hosiery series. Over in the National League, Atlanta continued their fairytale season with a 3-1 win over Milwaukee, and the Dodgers-Giants Clash of the Titans is heading to a deciding Game 5. Also, Jim Katt, don't say racist shit.
