Wauwatosa's Jocelyn Flashinski, who was killed by a train Friday, had developed strong bond with local autistic children.
Whenever Jocelyn Flashinski was coming over for therapy, young Mario Martinez, who is autistic, would wait impatiently for her. “He would sit at the window or the door. He would recognize her car. He would say ‘Jocelyn’s coming today,’” said the now 9-year-old boy’s father, Jesse Martinez of Milwaukee. Martinez paused to stifle tears Tuesday as he talked about the Wauwatosa woman who became more than just a therapist to his young son, and who had known Mario since he “was in Pampers.” When she met Mario, he couldn’t talk. “He was afraid of the wind when the trees would move. She got him past that,” Martinez said. “I told her, ‘Thank you for giving us back our son. Thank you for letting us know who Mario is. I think it was just the …

Some District 1 voters redirected after receiving conflicting instructions on their correct polling place. Overall, though, morning turnout was substantial.
Gov. Scott Walker came out to vote Tuesday early and alone, accompanied by no fanfare and followed by no media, casting the fifth ballot recorded in his home Ward 11 of District 4 of Wauwatosa. "I think he must have been waiting at the door," said election observer Bill Leum, assigned to the ward polling place at Jefferson Elementary School. "He was leaving when I showed up at 7:05." At least Walker knew where to go to vote. District 1 resident Julie O'Keeffe showed up at Wauwatosa Fire Station No. 1 at mid-morning, as she had been instructed in a notice from the city – only to be told she needed to vote at Washington Elementary School. It was the first time the fire station was being used as a polling place, after School District …

Property owner told city officials he was unaware of any part for the location in the city's comprehensive plan.
O'Reilly Auto Parts has signed a 15-year lease for the former Blockbuster building at 6102 W. North Ave., city officials and neighborhood representatives learned Friday. A group including several Common Council members, the city administrator, the economic development director and members of the East Tosa Alliance met with the property's owner and representatives Friday morning to discuss the future of the site, according to two aldermen who were present. But after a conversation about fitting any potential use into the city's comprehensive plan, they said, owner Dan Cohen of Mid-America Real Estate announced that the lease with O'Reilly had already been signed.

McBride proposes a binding public vote in April on whether 16 aldermen are needed.
Having just announced he's running for another term in office, Ald. Dennis McBride has introduced a resolution that could end up putting him out of the job. McBride has proposed a binding resolution to be put on the April 3 ballot asking voters to decide whether half as many Common Council members would be enough to govern Wauwatosa. The city is now — and is by charter — divided into eight aldermanic districts, each represented by two council members who are elected for four-year terms on a staggered, two-year schedule. McBride's resolution, he said, would reduce that representation to one alderman per district, if Wauwatosa citizens wanted it so. "The topic has come up at least five times," McBride said, "but it never seems to go anywhere…
