Pierce Elementary Presents Latin American Program

Pierce Elementary Presents Latin American Program

By Alan Eisenberg, Editor

Franklin Pierce Elementary School on Fratney Street in Milwaukee hosted an
exciting Latin American Program involving performances of both vocal and dance music on May 23rd. The school is bi-lingual, so all of the performances were also bi-lingual.  The vocals and dances were derived from a selection from many Latin American countries.  The faculty choreographed the dancing and taught the vocals.  The highlight of the event was a set of dance performances that had been prepared and were performed at the Bradley Center for the “Mad Hot Ballroom Competition” earlier in the week, both tap dancing and ballroom dancing.  The choreographing for that event was assisted by Danceworks, a Milwaukee non-profit that teaches dancing in some
Milwaukee Public Schools.  The Bradley Center performance by Pierce Elementary was sponsored in part by the Greater Milwaukee Board of Realtors.

Mounted throughout the auditorium were flags from all of the Latin American countries.  An interesting narrator/announcer was  Celena Phommachanh who also was part of a celebration of Roberto Clemente’s and Celia Cruz’s lives.  Ms. Phommachanh is also an academic excellence award winner honored at a recent dinner.

by Alan Eisenberg, Editor
On Saturday, May 18, The Timber Wolf Preservation Society of Wisconsin hosted a Birthday Bash and Memorial Celebration for its wolves, past and present.  The place, at 6669 South 76th Street, Franklin, was founded in 1967.  At 12:45, the proceeding hosted it’s first “Blessing of the Wolves” performed by Father Jose Moreno of St. Patrick’s Congregation of Milwaukee.  His blessing reminded attendees that God created the animals and the wolves; he also spoke about St. Francis of Assisi, the patron Saint of the animals.  About 400 people attended and the event continued the next day on Sunday.  The photo includes Nancy Jo Dowler, Executive Director and President of the TWPS, Father Jose Moreno, Eagle Scout Candidate Jonathan Niebgoda, and Board Member and Committee Chairman Alan Eisenberg.   The place is open to the public; admission is only $5 for Adults and $2 for children.  For more information go to 
or 
Many groups attend throughout the year at this educational institution.  The place is totally safe, but one can be closer to the wolves than at a zoo.  It’s exciting!

Is This Teacher Supernatural?

Is This Teacher Supernatural?
By Alan Eisenberg, Editor

This is too exciting!  Among all of the other things that I do, I study The History of American Art at UW-M, and my “Prof” is a splendid gentleman by the name of Michael Aschenbrenner.  I have been a student at various universities since 1959 but this guy is the best.  (Boy, am I old!)  Aschenbrenner has an interesting modus operandi of teaching.  He shows a long string of slides of ancient art, but takes the students back in time to the era that the painting describes.  It’s almost magic.  There we are, in 17th century colonial America.  Two months ago, he took us on an amazing Boston graveyard tour, and we wound up being taken back in time to about 1670.  It never even occurred to me to figure out how he had these eery 17th century photos.  Cameras didn’t exist. He was explaining early American sculpture, so I immediately got mentally involved with his explanations and details.  Suddenly a 21st century photo popped up and the class (including me) roared.  It was a photo of Aschenbrenner sitting or squatting next to a 1670 sculptured tombstone with a big grin.  It never occurred to me that Aschenbrenner was that old.  If you take the class, you might wonder!  (He is not hoary with age.)
