Wauwatosa residents reminded photo IDS required at polls

Under Wisconsin Act 23 — the 'Voter ID' bill, Wisconsin voters are reminded they are required to show photo ID for spring elections April 5, as they were for primary elections.

Samples of acceptable photo identifications include: a Wisconsin Department of Transporation-issued driver's license — even if driving privileges have been revoked or suspended; a Wisconsin DOT-issued identification card; a Wisconsin DOT-issued identification card or driver's license without a photo issued under the religious exemption; a military ID card issued by a U.S. uniformed service; a U.S. passport.

For a full list of acceptable photo identifications visit the city's website,, and click on 'elections/voting' on the left hand side of the web page. Those that are eligible to vote in Wisconsin, but do not have a Wisconsin identification card or a state driver's license, can receive a free state ID for voting purposes.

25th annual Blarney Run scheduled for March 12

The 25th annual Blarney Run/Walk is scheduled for this weekend in Wauwatosa.

The event will be held at the Hoyt Park and Pool Grand Hall, 1800 N. Swan Blvd., at 10 a.m. March 12. The course includes a 3.1-mile run or a 2-mile walk.

The 200-yeard 'Twinkle Trot' is for ages 10 and under.

The registration fee is $25 by March 11 or $30 on March 12. The first 500 Blarney Run/Walk participants are guaranteed a commemorative long-sleeved T-shirt with an exclusive design.

Over the years, the event has raised more than $300,000 for the programs and missions of the Wauwatosa Historical Society, Alderman Jeff Roznowski said in an email to NOW Newspapers.

Awards will be given to the overall male and female winners, the first three males and females in each age group, and the top wheelchair finisher. Results will be posted and awards will be presented immediately after the race in the Grand Hall at Hoyt Park and Pool.
