Morning Links for Jan. 22, 2014
Today's theme: home.

Another high-profile shooting hits home, why the Milwaukee Bucks may stay home, and Gov. Scott Walker has plans for the state of our home, all in today's links.

  • Tuesday's shooting at Purdue University claimed the life of Andrew Boldt, a 2010 Marquette University High School graduate. He was an Eagle Scout, and is being mourned both in the Milwaukee and Purdue communities. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Lafayette's Journal and Courier have more.
  • The Milwaukee street car route has changed, and the city's cool with that. And so are the feds. But yeah, there are still a few dissenters. The Journal Sentinel has more.
  • Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times says at least four ownership groups are serious about buying the Milwaukee Bucks. As for a new arena, one of Woelfel's sources gave it a 70 percent chance at success, while a second one upped the odds to 80 percent. Meanwhile, the Business Journal has more about a consultant group that's been hired to study the feasibility of merely refurbishing the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
  • Speaking of the Bucks, they host the Pistons tonight, which means Brandon Jennings is back in town again. He returns after playing just the second scoreless game of his career Monday. Jennings told MLive.com that he's still "thinking too much." So maybe he'll be preoccupied by tonight's Caron Butler bobblehead doll giveaway.
  • And finally, Gov. Scott Walker gives his State of the State address tonight. Sure, he'll talk about the budget surplus and tax cuts. But we put the over/under on polar vortex references at 1 1/2.
