End of the Af-Fair: Shorewood Rewind

The Shorewood summer fair is over, but at least we're still in Shorewood.

That annual rite of summer, the Shorewood Crossroads Festival, has passed us by.

This really stinks and we here at the Shorewood Patch would be mired in a really deep depression if it weren't for the heartening fact that hey, we're still Shorewood.

That's right. The fair might be over, summer's be drawing to a close, the economy may be in the toilet, but at the end of the day, we're in Shorewood. How great is that?

If you're in Shorewood, you know what we're talking about. If you're not in Shorewood, well, we're sorry for you.

And while we're enjoying being in Shorewood, we can also take comfort in the fact that we always have next year, and another Shorewood Crossroads Festival.

But before we start looking to the future, let's do some living in the past. We do it right here every week, and we call it the SHOREWOOD REWIND.

Legal expert critical of cops Shorewood

Patch legal expert John Schrock was of the manner in which the Shorewood police handled the arrest of local teen Jacob Gajcak. In his blog, Schrock said "it appears that questionable procedures were used which might not only hinder the prosecution of Gajcak, it might subject the officer and Shorewood to liability."
