After week 2, I fell behind on posting photos from my internship. Here are some highlights from the last few weeks at the paper.
I went to IndyFest at the Milwaukee Mile and shot racing for the first time. I'm extremely glad that I was there for the practice the day before to get acclimated to the track. It was tough to get around in a timely fashion, but it was a lot of fun.
I had another difficult assignment, but in a very different way. Milwaukee has now surpassed last year's total for homicides and it's only July. On July 3, Tariq Akbar, 13, was killed after the Fourth of July fireworks in Milwaukee. I attended the vigil at his home.
On a lighter note, Miller Park was transformed into a soccer field for one game.
Then a piano was on fire...
Attended a pop-up barbershop...
And then had one of my favorite assignments, where I hiked with two veterans on the Ice Age Trail as a part of Warrior Hikes.
With Roughly a month of my internship left, it's almost time to say goodbye to the MJS and head back to Athens. Feels like I just started yesterday.
