Budding opera stars get professional training and a roof over their heads at the Florentine’s Casa di Opera.

The Grudge Won't Budge
Once the model of a local government, Milwaukee County seems mired in an endless power struggle. Is the county beyond the point of repair? Or are the latest political dustups just a sign of history repeating itself?

Raw Deal
Selling unpasteurized milk is legal in 30 states. But not in America’s Dairyland. While medical experts and the dairy industry warn of health risks, true believers swear by the time-tested nutritional value of raw milk. And they’ve found a WAY around Wisconsin’s prohibition.

For Love & Money
Same-sex marriages could add $43 million in wedding spending to Wisconsin’s economy in three years if they were legal. But the real economic impact goes far deeper than veils, venues and vows.

While You Were Sleeping
By following 1,500 subjects for 25 years, a landmark study at the University of Wisconsin helped reinvent sleep science and proved that sleep apnea causes more than snoring. Scientists now link the sleep disruption to health risks ranging from high blood pressure and stroke to cardiovascular disease and early death. Is your aging brain a risk too?

Early on as a middle child of a large family, a nagging sense that I had too few things of the things I wanted strengthened my innate skills of observation and critique. Later, a fine arts education prompted me to explore my creative expression along while studying that of others. Soon, sorting out a career in Manhattan’s fashion and publishing worlds introduced me to the excitement, power and seduction of all manner of style and design, to say nothing of the tickle of seeing one’s name in print for the very first time. Eventually, a sudden and unexpected blip on the screen of life sent me  smack back to my hometown nest. Today, blending all manner of what I’ve managed to scoop up along the way, I yammer on about this or that in an effort to stir up some enthusiasm in support of local stores, shoppers and style. Once in while, I share a bit of myself with those who may or may not be listening. In the end all I can offer is that I’m a firm believer in the "art of chat."

Howie Magner
Senior Editor

Barring an in-game tour by preschool students, Howie Magner is routinely the shortest person in Milwaukee-area press boxes. Still, the University of Tulsa grad spent 15 years covering sports for newspapers in Oklahoma, Ohio and Michigan, winning more than a dozen awards for everything from spot news to features to columns. He joined Milwaukee Magazine in 2007 as an associate editor and soon began his Sports Nut column, which was honored in 2009 and 2010 by the Milwaukee Press Club. He's often a guest, and an occasional guest host, on SportsRadio 1250, and he talks sports once a month on WUWM's "Lake Effect." He also tweets sports regularly as @howiemag and enjoys acting, history and travel. Finally, when interviewing Bucks players, he hopes they're sitting down.

Kurt Chandler
Editor
Editor Kurt Chandler was a senior editor at Milwaukee Magazine beginning in 1998, writing profiles, narratives and commentaries. In previous lives, he worked construction, drove a cab and played the banjo (not necessarily at the same time). He’s toiled in journalism as a magazine writer, newspaper reporter and author of books for nearly three decades now, and unmindful of his father’s advice, he has nothing to fall back on. Yet Chandler is not without a specialized set of skills: He can take notes in the dark and is pretty good with active verbs.
