Greendale's Josh Ringelberg named NOW Football Player of the Year

Dec. 06, 2013 8:04 a.m. | Greendale quarterback Josh Ringelberg is quick to credit his teammates, but there was no doubt of the offensive impact the dual-threat junior had this season.

Ringelberg has been voted the NOW All-Suburban Football Player of the Year after throwing for 41 touchdowns and running for 10. He led the Panthers to the Division 3 state finals, where he threw for a record 270 yards, including a record 97-yard toss to Nate Miller.

Ringelberg is joined on the team by Homestead's Dave Keel, the NOW All-Suburban Football Coach of the Year. Keel, a perennial contender for the award, garnered it for the first time after leading the Highlanders to an 11-1 mark despite losing the bulk of his 2012 state title team to graduation.

Brookfield approves spending $38 million on Corners development

Dec. 03, 2013 9:25 p.m. | The Town of Brookfield will spend around $38 million to help finance a $176 million retail development anchored by a Von Maur department store, under a proposal approved Tuesday night.

The Town Board voted unanimously to provide public financing for The Corners, which will have stores, restaurants and apartments north of I-94 and east of Barker Road.

With the vote, demolition of an empty theater and other vacant buildings at the site is to begin in early 2014, followed by construction of The Corners. Von Maur and the other retailers, which haven't yet been named publicly, are to open by November 2015.

The Corners is being developed by Milwaukee-based Marcus Corp., which owns the former cinema and other property at the site; CarVal Investors LLC, an independent subsidiary of Minneapolis-based food conglomerate Cargill Inc., and Chicago-based real estate investment company M&J Wilkow.

The town's money is being provided through a tax incremental financing district at the project site. New property taxes from The Corners will pay back those funds within an estimated 20 years. After the town's debt is paid, the property taxes go to the town, the Waukesha School District and other local governments.
