County Executive Chris Abele spoke to chamber members on Wednesday about some fiscal happenings in Milwaukee County.
In April, in the midst of the recall campaigns, Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele went to Opening Day at Miller Park, where he sat between Gov. Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, two men Abele says he gets along with. Walker quipped about the shirt Abele should have worn to the game: One with arrows pointing left and right, and proclaiming "I'm with stupid." Abele's joke warmed up the crowd at Wednesday’s Greendale Chamber of Commerce event, where he shared promising news about this year's county budget. Last year’s 2011 budget started with a $55 million deficit and about $1 billion in long-term liabilities. Things seem to be looking brighter for the county.

From the ceiling to the floor Southridge Mall is getting a makeover. Mall Manager Mary Mokwa gives Greendale an update on the $52 million renovation.
Southridge Mall Manager Mary Mokwa said there is a lot of interest in the renovated mall at Thursday's Greendale Chamber of Commerce breakfast where she gave an update on the renovation. Not only did Mokwa give an update but she also gave some history on Southridge. Southridge opened in 1970 in Greendale. Over the years Southridge was a powerhouse as the largest mall in the state with five anchor stores. However, things started getting dim for the mall in the 2000s. "As time marched competition started to pull ahead," Mokwa said. "Mayfair renovated enhancing their tenant mix in 2005. Bayshore re-emerged as a lifestyle center in 2007. Brookfield Square remodeled and added restaurants in the stores in the outer parcels in 2008." Last year …
