Rogers Memorial Hospital is planning a $12 million project to convert a Brown Deer building into a full-service, 56-bed inpatient Mental Health facility. Rogers Memorial, based in Oconomowoc, provides treatment for eating disorders, anxiety, addiction and other mental health issues.

A shark fisherman from Mexico who had been missing since December of 2012, washed up on the shore of the remote Marshall Islands, 5,500 miles away in the Pacific Ocean. The 37-year-old claimed he survived for over 13 months on birds, turtles and fish as his 23-foot fiberglass boat drifted in the Pacific after a storm blew him off-course. Officials claim the story details seem "sketchy", but if true, would rank among the greatest tales ever told of survival at sea.

As reported by the MBJ: Willie Hines is leaving his post on the Milwaukee Common Council to take the associate director job with the city's Housing Authority. Hines has been on the council since 1996 and served as its president since 2004. His new position with the Housing Authority includes overseeing housing operations, maintenance and federal rent-assistance programs.

Bad news for anyone hoping for an early spring: Milwaukee County Zoo's groundhog "Wynter" saw her shadow on Sunday, predicting along with Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil, six more weeks of winter. 

Secret Soundtrack - The Invention of Lying

1. Tagline from this 2009 Comedy/Fantasy/Romance "In a world where everyone can only tell the truth...this guy can lie."

SONG: Donovan "Catch The Wind"


2. QUOTE: "We both know that one day you're gonna loose your looks."

SONG: Electric Light Orchestra "Mr. Blue Sky"


3. This was Ricky Gervais's motion picture directing debut.

SONG: Supertramp "Dreamer"

BONUS CLUE: When trying to secure Philip Seymour Hoffman for his cameo his agent claimed he was too busy so Ricky Gervais requested his email address and sent him the following: "Dear Philip, will you please appear in my new film? There is very little money involved as I spent the budget on testicular implants, but don't look upon them as my testicles, look at them as our testicles." Phillip Seymour Hoffman couldn't refuse after that.
