Morning Links for April 16, 2015

The Bucks and Brewers, a statewide tornado drill, and sprucing up South Shore Park.

We read, therefore we’re in the know. Our collection of newsiest morning bits:


The Milwaukee Bucks ended its season last night with a 105-100 loss to the Boston Celtics. The Bucks will now open the playoffs on Saturday against the Chicago Bulls.


A statewide tornado drill? Yep. It’s happening today at 1 p.m.


Milwaukee County revealed plans to upgrade South Shore Park and more than $1 million in County funds has been secured to improve water quality.


The Milwaukee Brewers lost 4-2 against the Cardinals Wednesday in St. Louis. Outfielder Carlos Gomez injured his hamstring and isn’t expected to play Thursday afternoon.


And in food news, America’s first vegetarian school — in Queens, New York — is apparently thriving. But is tofu the way to go for more public schools?
