American killed in Syria
 a journalist at heart
Pair of ‘upscale’ apartments proposed for downtown Waukesha
ROCHESTER, N.H. — Journalist James Foley, captured and held six weeks while covering the uprising in Libya, knew the risks when he went to Syria in 2012 to cover the escalating violence there. It didn't matter. He was a journalist at heart, once saying he'd cover local news if it meant doing the job he loved. WAUKESHA — A pair of “upscale” apartment buildings proposed for the downtown area in the city of Waukesha took an early step toward becoming reality Monday night. The city’s Redevelopment Authority approved plans for the two buildings — one on the 200 block of West Main Street and another at the southeast corner of Corrina Boulevard and Buckley Street — which would add a combined 84 new apartments.
