Memorial Day parades in Fox Point and Bayside have been sporadic for the past couple of decades but local veterans and their families hope even without a parade this year, those who have fought for our freedom will not be forgotten.
Every year, families pack up their minivans and children's PF Flyers with goodies, stake out their spot with blankets and wait for the Memorial Day parade — a humbling reminder of why we have the freedoms we do in America. But in Fox Point and Bayside, there will be no parades this year.

Refinery problem in Illinois could increase local gas prices by 40 cents per gallon for a short time.
Don’t look now, but Wisconsin gas prices, particularly in the southeastern part of the state, may be on the rise – as much as 40 cents per gallon - as the Memorial Day weekend approaches. This time it has nothing to do with factors like volatility in the Middle East. The source of the problem is much closer, across the border in Illinois. “Midwest gas prices are likely headed up in the coming days due to problems at a refinery in Joliet, Illinois,” said Pam Moen, spokeswoman for AAA Wisconsin. “Wholesale gasoline prices in the Chicago market have risen about 40 cents since Friday. We will likely see those increases reflected in retail prices in the coming days.” Now for the good news. The refinery issue should be resolved within a few days…
