Answers from Ryan Braun and questions for Gov. Scott Walker.

Ryan Braun and Gov. Scott Walker, both facing questions. But yeah, they're a little different. Read on.

 

  • Word broke this morning that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun would answer media questions for the first time since Major League Baseball suspended him for performance enhancing drugs. He did so in conjunction with a charity event for Hunger Task Force. SportsRadio 1250 WSSP has audio of the full press conference here.
  • Gov. Scott Walker is taking more political flak, this time from a band of the spectrum that says if he fails to act on their educational issue demands, they'll question his commitment to their constituency. The constituency? More than 60 Wisconsin's tea party organizations, which want to replace the state's common core educational standards with standards of their own. The Business Journal has more details.
  • A 17-year-old Milwaukee native has high hopes that this is his big break. Jacob Lattimore stars in the new theatrical release of Black Nativity, which opens today and also features noted actors such as Forest Whitaker and Jennifer Hudson. Tap Milwaukee has more.
  • If you've been waiting to see the Milwaukee Bucks play on their new home court, here's your chance. The new ode to Robert Indiana's Mecca floor makes its debut tonight. It was supposed to be ready for the start of the season, but it was too slippery to use. Now, the resurfaced floor will be underfoot when the Bucks host Washington and try to break a nine-game losing streak. Fox Sports Wisconsin has more details.
  • And finally, you may have heard the recent tale about a New Jersey waitress who said she was denied a tip because of her sexual preference. Dayna Morales posted a picture of the tipless bill online, complete with an admonishing note ostensibly left by the stiffers. The story went viral, and outraged readers even sent her hundreds of dollars. Well, now the family whose bill it was has come forward denying that was the case. They even provided NBC News New York corroborating evidence of their original receipt along with a credit card bill, both showing a generous tip, but no admonishing note. Stay tuned for the TV movie.
