  To heal after parade tragedy, the Grannies must march again MILWAUKEE (AP) — The high winds forecasters warned about are blasting down Wisconsin Avenue, but 15 grandmothers lining up in the street are ready to march. They’re dressed for this morning’s parade in wide-brimmed hats held on tight with elastic chin straps. And they’ve subbed out red pom poms for white ones so the dye won’t run in rain that is teasing its return from a leaden November sky. “This is like my calling,” says Kathi Schmeling, a retired human resources assistant, her grin framed by the crimson lipstick that is a signature of the women who call themselves the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies. “This is my happy place.

Rein has been charged with reckless homicide and reckless operation of a motor vehicle in connection to the crash and is being held on $100,000 bail. Rein pleaded not guilty to the charges, Cruz also said.

An Apple spokesperson previously told PEOPLE that the victim killed in Monday's crash was "a professional who was onsite supporting recent construction at the store."
