by Mark Stewart of the Journal Sentinel
For full article click here.
Quote of the day...
In a season when there has been much parity, the victory solidified Memorial's spot as the area's top-ranked team and arguably the top team in the state regardless of division.
N.B. We win the tourney, but no pictures in the J-S gallery?

The numbers aren't final yet, but everything looks positive for reaching our goal.
The Team Hartmann vrs Team Hall competition also seem to still be in the works. As it stands right now, between the two of us, we have raised over $10,000 for CMH.
The day started, as usual with a prayer service. As is our tradition, we use a variation of the blessing of pilgrims -- as we journey, so we encounter Christ.
We moved WalkaThon to homecoming week last year. A great reminder of both the joy and responsibility be a member of the CMH family. No matter what, as CMHer can always find their way home.
The week of Homecoming activities have been enthusiastic and zeal-filled.
Vince Klain and Alex Gromacki together MC'd our pep rally after the WaT. Very entertaining!
Thanks to everyone who supported CMH through pledges to the WalkaThon. All of our students are the winners.

I am at 83% of my new goal with just 4 days to go!
We are in the homestretch, and I need your help.
It used to be that I only had to stay ahead of precocious students. But now it has become Team Hartmann vs Team Hall in a contest for the ages.
CMH Principal, Bob Hall, has been working hard and is said to have set up Survivor-like alliances with Mr. Farrell, Mr. Gamalski, and Coach Young. Their confidence is good, but with your help we can be victorious in the this contest which ultimately only benefits CMH and our students.
Please pledge your support for CMH and join Team Hartmann today

Milwaukee's Top 30 Restaurants for 2011
Sebastian's Fine Food and Spirits
6025 Douglas Ave., Caledonia. (262) 681-5465; sebastiansfinefood.com
Sebastian's has a rare treat on its menu for beef lovers. It's a dish chef-owner Scott Sebastian [CMH '76] calls crown of ribeye: two rolled medallions cut from the thoroughly marbled but well-trimmed cap of ribeye. The result is richly flavored, incredibly tender meat, served with demi-glace and béarnaise sauces. Steaks and seafood dominate the menu at this polished, rustic restaurant about 10 minutes south of Milwaukee County, but duck breast prepared sous vide for maximum tenderness was a pleasure, served with Port-dried cherry demi-glace and aromatic rice. While an appetizer of tenderloin sliders needed tender rolls as well, creamy lemon semifreddo for dessert was pitch perfect, a brightly flavored ending.
Hours: 5-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 5-9:30 Friday-Saturday.
Prices: Entrées, $17-$38.
Payment: MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover.
125 E. National Ave. (414) 389-0125; lamerenda125.com
The dining room is full and the feeling is convivial at Peter Sandroni's [CMH '89] restaurant, where guests share a spectrum of small plates. Those plates take them on a tour of the world (even while building on local ingredients) - dishes such as calabacitas, a garlicky stew of squashes, corn, tomatoes and peppers; lamb confit served with Dutch brown beans, a meaty heirloom bean; and croquetas, potato purée with blue cheese and speck, breaded and fried crisp, and served with excellent romesco sauce. La Merenda's beet ravioli in lemon cream sauce and Indonesian shrimp are two dishes that make me wish the concept weren't built on sharing.
Hours: Lunch, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Friday; dinner, 5-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 5-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
Prices: Small plates, $3.50-$11.
Payment: MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover.

I had the pleasure of being in a foursome and sharing a cart with former Badger running back and Heisman Trophy winner, Ron Dayne. A very soft-spoken man, who is very personable and has a great story to tell. I have invited him to speak at CMH sometime soon. We are working on details.
Before the dinner, I met and spent some time with Green Packer wide receiver, Jordy Nelson. "Down to earth" doesn't begin to describe Jordy. His great success in both college and the pros has not altered the integrity and work ethic of his Kansas farm roots.
When asked about hopes for renewing his contract with the Packers at the end of this season, Jordy indicated that Green Bay is the biggest town he has ever lived in, and it fits best for he, his high school sweetheart wife, and toddler son.
Before the dinner and auction, the Klumb family asked if I would offer an invocation. I did this gladly and share the text with you here.
Make-A-Wish Golf Outing Dinner Invocation
Proverbs 13:12 "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a wish fulfilled is a tree of life."
We pray this day that the joy given us by God, will be the joy we show all the people we meet.
We pray that the gift of life we have been given, will be the life we live to the fullest.
We pray that the hope that we the fortunate find in our hearts, will be the hope we seek to give the unfortunate.
We pray that the wishes fulfilled, will be the tree of life which stands tall.
the tree of life which bears much fruit.
the tree of life which bends to the wind, but never breaks in the storms.
We pray that in God's good graces we will have joy, life, hope and fulfilled wishes.
We pray in thanksgiving for all of the blessings of this day, and for the chance to bring all God's gifts to others.
We ask God's same blessings on all here gathered.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN!
But with your help, this is doable. A great cause, great kids, and a very easy way to support CMH. I am at 82% of this new goal!
Team Hall is taking its licks, but they refuse surrender. With almost $2500 Team Hall is at 82% of its $3,000 goal.
I know it is hard, but it is time to choose up sides and pledge your support --

More information about this and U.S. Bank’s Student lending program can be found at www.usbank.com/student-loans.
The online scholarship application for the 2012-2013 academic year will be available October, 1 2011 via U.S. Bank’s website at www.usbank.com/scholarship.

After reading the article, it seems that each time CMH has beaten Arrowhead, they (Arrowhead) actually go on to greater success in the post-season tourney. So, why not just accept that as the better path.

In the junior varsity match, the lady Crusaders pitched another shutout, as they finished off a 27-0 victory over the new Wauwatosa team. Sophomore wing Brittany Silas scored two tries in her first-ever match.
