Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents at Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport have prevented the boarding of three handguns on planes during the Thanksgiving travel period, a statement said Monday (Nov. 29).

The first incident happened on Saturday, November 20. TSA officers detected the weapon in the checkpoint x-ray machine at around 11:20 a.m. An assistant from the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the checkpoint and escorted the passenger to the substation. The Taurus Spectrum .380 firearm was loaded with six rounds in the magazine.

On Monday, November 22, another firearm was caught around 3 p.m. The firearm was unloaded and the passenger stated that she intended to check the firearm but forgot to move it in the checked bag. The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office responded again at the checkpoint and the passenger was cited.

On Thursday, November 25, at around 6:30 a.m., TSA agents also detected a firearm in the carry-on baggage of a passenger. The Glock 19 .40 caliber firearm was loaded with 15 rounds and one chamber. The passenger has been cited.

“During this holiday season, passengers can be grateful to local and national TSA officers who remain focused on their mission of keeping security threats off an aircraft,” said Mark Lendvay, director of security Federal TSA of Wisconsin. “Bringing a firearm in hand luggage is always a mistake, and I urge all travelers to properly pack their firearms before going to the airport. “

]]> Wisconsin chef among creators of new publication on indigenous cuisine Mon, 29 Nov 2021 12:00:03 +0000

A groundbreaking Indigenous multimedia publication and cookbook have begun to appear, and a chef from Wisconsin is playing a central role.

Chief Kristina Stanley, an assistant professor at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton and a former business owner in Madison, is the project manager for The Gathering Basket, a new online Indigenous community newspaper.

It is published by the I-Collectif, a group of leaders, activists, herbalists, seed keepers and indigenous knowledge who work to carry on ancestral traditions. Stanley is also director of operations for the I-Collectif.

The first issue came out on October 11 for Indigenous Peoples Day and featured a series of essays on the history of chiltepin, a type of chili pepper, as well as information and recipes around yuca, too. known as cassava. The second issue, published Nov. 4 during Native American Heritage Month, focuses on the 1970s walleye wars in Wisconsin, tribal hunting and fishing rights.

Squash bars will be featured in The Gathering Basket, a new Native American online publication.

Tribal roots were close to home

Stanley, who is the Food and Culinary Program Coordinator for the Native American Food Sovereignty Alliance, was born in Park Falls, Price County. She is Anishinaabe and a registered member of the Red Lake Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, a band of Ojibway Indians.

Because her father was adopted, she has only known about her Aboriginal heritage for about 14 years. Finding out more about his legacy was mind-blowing for Stanley, she said, but even more so for her father, who discovered he had family ties living within an hour’s drive.
