Milwaukee celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, extreme cold, the WIAA, a new Kanye West song, and should the Packers have gone for two?
Good morning, welcome to Monday.
- Along with Atlanta, Ga., Milwaukee is one of two cities to have celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. Day every year since 1984. Today, Martin Luther King Library on Locust Street will be hosting events all day, and the County’s annual King Day celebration is taking place at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center on Vliet Street.
- It’s still extraordinarily cold today, and the region is under a wind chill advisory until noon, and today’s high is 5 degrees.
- The WIAA has been widely ridiculed lately after an organizational memo outlined unsportsmanlike fan behavior leaked to the media. WIAA director Dave Anderson talked with WISN’s Mike Gousha about the controversy. WisPolitics has the recap.
- Kanye West released a new song, “No More Parties in LA,” that features Kendrick Lamar.
- ESPN’s Bill Barnwell notes the contrast in aggressiveness between Arizona coach Bruce Arians and Green Bay’s famously conservative leader Mike McCarthy and argued that the Packers should have gone for two instead of kicking the extra point to force overtime.
