On BREAKING: Residents suing town of Milton over Traynor gravel pit permit
Amon is involved in a multi million dollar bankruptcy in Walworth County and another county. Why would he get a permit for another gravel pit?
On Wisconsin committee to vote on junk food stamp bill
It used to be that you didn't get food stamps, but you got canned food that the government specifically had packaged for this type of service. It had no label but stamped right on the can was a statement that this was govt assistance and was not to be sold or distributed for any other purposes. It was not necessarily what we would consider "great" food, but it was things like vegetables, stew, etc. It was also an incentive to get off of assistance.
On Wisconsin nuclear plant layoffs to start May 31
donnaw - Where are the new jobs that he created? I'm sure the reason for closing of the plant is very complicated - not as simple as you seem to have determined. My question is - what are these 633 employees going to do? Most likely they are all from the same geographic area and this will be a major hit to every business that they support with their wages. I read this as not being a very supportive climate for businesses in WI.
Creation of new jobs under Walker's tenure? Well? Here's another 633 workers without a job; where are they going - to the new jobs he has created?
On Report to recommend gas tax, other fee increases
I see a problem with verifying the miles you have driven with licensing fees. Will new state jobs be created to do this? Not that I want taxes raised, but if gas tax was raised, everyone who travels within the state and purchases fuel would help pay the fees - if you drive on the roads, you are helping to pay for their upkeep. And if you read the latest articles, tourism is up throughout the state so anyone from other states here either driving to their destination, or renting a car once they get to their destination will also be paying their fair share.
And I like Dwight's comment as well.
On Quaker Steak & Lube targets former Damon's Grill site
Alas, another chain that is nothing out of the ordinary - for me anyway. But, I guess one business is better than none. I wish them luck in their endeavors.
On Midweek snowstorm could dump 12 inches in Madison
So was it Doyle that put all of those electronic freeway barriers in place? It's a good idea to have barriers, but I'm surprised they installed them in some of the places that they did. Some of the ramps still have the old manual barricades sitting by the ramp entrances.
On In-person early voting begins in Wisconsin
Vector: go to http://myvote.wi.gov, choose "Regular Voter" and search your address. This will give you the contact information for your municipality - you can contact them directly to find out how to vote Absentee either by mail or in-person. The site also has a lot of useful information!
This should read In-Person Absentee Voting, not early voting. The ballots are sealed in a the same very specific envelope, whether voted by mail or in-person. The ballots that are marked in-person are not opened, processed or counted until Election Day - same as Absentee Voting by Mail.
On Advance voting to get under way Monday
Actually, "In-person Absentee Voting" at the Clerk's Office of each municipality begins Monday, October 22nd and ends Friday, November 2 at 5:00 pm. Electors vote their ballot and place and seal them in Certificate Envelopes which must be signed by the Voter, as well as a witness (who must also provide their address and is also a US citizen, etc). In the case of "In-person Absentee Voting", the Clerk or municipal designee must be the witness. These envelopes are then stored with all other absentee voted envelopes and will be only opened and placed in the electronic voting machine on Election Day. No votes will be tabulated "early" as the term early voting suggests.
