Are you celebrating Wisconsin's special 12-12-12? Share what you like best about the Green Bay Packers quarterback here – or tell us why you can't stand him!
I personally think 12-12-12 should be a national holiday, but with our president being a Bears fan and all … it’s not going to happen. It’s Aaron Rodgers day. A day for Green Bay Packers fans to celebrate the success of the team under the leadership of No. 12. Let’s just face it, it’s a day for us to wear our green and gold jerseys, to paint our fingernails green (am I right, ladies?) and to just get darn excited that we are Packers fans from Wisconsin. Aaron Rodgers day started as a Facebook joke that became viral. The state legislature officially declared Dec. 12, 2012, to be his day. Milwaukee County workers are being allowed to wear Packers jerseys or shirts to work on Wednesday. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele is encouraging …

Search Patch's interactive database to see who in Fox Point and Bayside is making contributions to President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
While polls show President Barack Obama may have more support from Wisconsin voters than Republican candidate Mitt Romney, there are some indications that the race may be tightening. A Marquette University poll released last week shows Obama leading Romney, 53 percent to 42 percent, which is down from the 14-point lead Obama held in the same poll in mid-September. Campaign contributions for Fox Point and Bayside combined are nearly identitcal for each candidate, with $22,009 donated to Obama and $22,120 donated to Romney. However, of the 20 individual donations made to Romney from Bayside residents, Dr. William W. Greaves made 16 of those, for a total of $10,645 coming from just one person. That leaves only $2,375 coming from other Bayside…

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was last year's NFL MVP as the Packers went 15-1, then flamed out in the playoffs. Can they replicate last year's regular-season success?
You can tell Green Bay Packers fans are anxious for the 2012 season by the way they engaged in collective sphincter clenching over the preseason play of backup quarterback Graham Harrell. But then Harrell closed the preseason on Thursday looking more like Aaron Rodgers than Erin Moran for once in a 24-3 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. For a fan base eager to erase the memory of the Fail Mary in last year’s playoffs, it was the sort of performance — in a meaningless game, to be sure — that should turn the optimism up to 11. The Packers were 15-1 in the regular season, winning 14 games to open the season and establishing themselves as easily the best team in football. Rodgers played brilliantly at quarterback all season to earn NFL Most …
