More evidence in support of my personal and strongly held theory that Milwaukee offers one of the best places to reside in the country; that despite (or perhaps, in part because of) being a well-kept secret.

Todays’s Journal Sentinal Online has the full story.

Mother Nature might wave her finger and offer an occasional scolding, but it’s unlikely she’ll unleash her full fury on Milwaukee, according to a study released Tuesday that ranks the city No. 1 in the country in terms of safety from a catastrophic natural disaster.

A pair of whooping cranes has hatched two chicks in central Wisconsin, marking the first young of the species to be hatched in the wild in the eastern United States in more than 100 years.

Operation Migration, the group coordinating the effort to establish a second migratory flock of the endangered birds in North America, posted photos on its Web site documenting the success.

Photos of the nest show two brown chicks being tended by their adult parents among thick marsh grass of the Necedah National Wildlife Refuge. Joe Duff, who heads Operation Migration, says the successful nesting is just the start, because the birds still face the challenge of keeping the young alive until they can fly.
