Associate editor Stacy Vogel Davis and reporter Alison Bauter have the big story in today's issue taking an in-depth look at the fact that the number of women on Milwaukee-area boards has stalled at 14 percent. With similar struggles in the c-suite, what will it take to make progress? This week's issue also includes profiles of our 28 Women of Influence award winners.

Which will you try? Gator on-a-stick, python spring rolls and beer brat pizza among new foods at Wisconsin State Fair
http://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/blog/table_talk/2014/07/gator-on-a-stick-python-spring-rolls-and-beer-brat.html?ana=twt
As expected, this year’s list of new Wisconsin State Fair foods includes plenty of exotic ingredients, crazy concoctions and foods on-a-stick. And meat. Lots and lots of meat.

Reporter Denise Lockwood has today's big story on parents/kids not wanting manufacturing careers and efforts to try and change that disturbing trend: http://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/blog/2014/06/do-we-need-to-make-up-with-manufacturing-or-does.html?ana=twt … 
Manufacturing companies have long held our hearts and minds, our blood and sweat, and our hopes and dreams for centuries in this country; but for decades there has been a deep rift between the American worker and manufacturers as companies have relocated the jobs to China, India and Mexico.

I was very pleased that our Milwaukee Press Club hosted new Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry this morning in a joint event with the Milwaukee Rotary Club. Senior reporter Rich Kirchen has the news from the event: The new owners of the Milwaukee Bucks will meet in New York City Wednesday with “three or four” arena/stadium developers who have responded to a request-for-proposals on a new downtown Milwaukee arena, Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry said Monday. http://www.bizjournals.com/milwaukee/news/2014/06/23/edens-lasry-to-meet-with-arena-developers.html
