On Economic development changes set
What a slap in the face to someone with a Master's Degree AND experience. 50K a year? I hope no one applies. How about we divide the city managers job in 2 assistants that pay half the salary of 1. Then we can let Jay Winzenz take one of the jobs at a pay reduction. What a joke Janesville. Way to put an emphasis on education and the perks of having one. I almost make 50K a year and I have an Associate's Degree.
On Tensions between bicyclists, drivers
Steve Knox is out riding his bike enjoying the beautiful Southern Wisconsin countryside. Some good information here/some misinformation. Just remember cyclists are not trying to make you late or purposely making your blood boil. Give us a couple seconds and we will get over for you. Many of us ride out in the country on the less busy roads. We do ride side by side at times having a nice conversation while enjoying the countryside (totally legal). When we hear you behind us we will get single file and let you pass. Most of us wear bright clothes, and have lights to help you see us. And many of us do stop at stop signs and red lights (as long as there is traffic to stop for). If you go through a 4 way stop in the middle of the country and there is no one else around, does it really hurt? Just remember we are someone's spouse, someone's mom or dad, or just someone's everything and we are not trying to do whatever it is you think we are doing to you. There is plenty of room for all of us on the road as long as we all respect each other.
On Foremost Farms to close dairy plants
This is the new way corporations run. If they have 20 people and believe they can make 15 people do the work of 20, they will do it. Notice how they said the volume of cheese would not go down, they are just going to do it with less people. Manufacturing jobs better get used to this. It is the new corporate strategy to instantly increase profitability. And with everyone on the anti-union bandwagon right now, there is nothing to stop them. Shareholders and investment groups want results.
On More accountability coming to comments
I would make people post using the name tied to their subscription. If you can't be proud or own up to what your are saying, you probably shouldn't be saying it.
On Holding pattern: AirFest's future depends on big teams, sponsors
I wouldn't try to compare the 4H Fair with the airfest. The 4H fair is supposed to be a showcase for the things the kids in 4H have done throughout the year. I know that most people are mostly concerned with the entertainment and probably don't even take the time to look at any of the kids exhibits. The fair should not be compared with airfest.
If corporate sponsors can't be found then let it die. It is too weather dependent and too dependent on the schedules of the bigger acts. Also if you have seen one air show, you have seen them all. They really are basically the same.
On Teachers union threatening to sue Janesville School Board
jp- the school board does represent the taxpayers. Those of us that have supported every referendum including the building of Kennedy elementary and the expansions of both high schools. We the taxpayers that support education. This school board is a joke and does not represent the majority of the Janesville population in my opinion. They seem to have their own agenda. We all know Sodemann is a staunch Republican and a Walker backer. He is not acting on behalf of the taxpayers. He is acting on behalf of his bud Scott.
On Janesville School District asks teachers to sign incomplete contracts
The school board should negotiate in good faith and not be pulling this blank contract garbage. Janesville should not treat their teachers this way.
who would ever sign a contract that was blank? The school board needs to negotiate. Sodemann came off as a tool on the news. I agree that Kevin Murray is the only guy with common sense on the school board.
On Panel suggests more taxes, fees, for drivers
I would unhook my odometer. Being taxed based on the number of miles you drive is absurd.
