A Greendale police detective, a mall security sergeant and a citizen helped save the life of 61-year-old Loreto Piczon, who suffered a heart attack while walking in the mall.
Since coming from California to Wisconsin to visit his daughter, Loreto Piczon had become a mall walker at Southridge, doing laps around the mall with dozens other before stores open. One lap in late March was nearly Piczon’s last. At approximately 9:45 a.m. March 30, Piczon, 61, suffered what should have been a life-taking heart attack. Should have been, had it not been for an alert and capable trio. Mall security Sgt. Joel Rose was one of the first men to reach Piczon after a citizen dialed 911. He immediate began performing CPR by providing Piczon with emergency breathing. He was also quick to request an automated exterior defibrillator.

The restaurant was initially believed to be headed to 76th Street this summer. But that's not the case, the company now says.
It appears Chick-fil-A, the national chicken restaurant chain, is still coming to Greendale. Just not as soon as previously expected. Village officials approved the building of a 4,779-square-foot Chick-fil-A for one of the Walmart outlots back in October 2012. At that time, Chick-fil-A representatives indicated the 109-seat restaurant with a drive-through, outdoor seating and indoor playground would be built by July or August on South 76th Street, just across the street from Southridge Mall. Brenda Morrow, with the Atlanta-based restaurant’s public relations department, however, said no Greendale restaurant plans are in the works this year. “Too soon to communicate anything other than we plan to come to Greendale in 2014,” Morrow said in …
