Oldvet: Sticks and Stones my friend, Sticks and Stones...
On Rock County corn farmers enjoy ‘A very good year’
Great photography on that second photo inside the Gazette!
Pat114, I was born and raised in Janesville, it is my history and my heritage. The Tallman House is a landmark in my life from my childhood through today. I want the city to preserve this historic site because so many others have been lost through the years. The historic sites and the documented information about them help me to understand where I came from, who I am and what my purpose is. I am a humble, middle class, Janesville citizen but I feel richer having enjoyed the tour of that magnificent home. Yes, it cost me a few of my tax dollars to maintain, money well spent when I consider the wealth of knowledge I and others have gained from learning our past.
On Shots traded in Walworth County standoff
This was an angry individual acting out and no, this isn't going to go away without years of therapy and pyschiactric care. Don't let him out without it.
On Was council right to apply brakes to roundabout?
Roundabouts became popular throughout the country because they cause motorists to HAVE to slow down. Touted as the latest and coolest thing, we don't need it there. A stoplight is fine.
On Janesville City Council to hold budget hearing Monday
I'm not impressed with City Manager Eric Levitt for a number of reasons. His budget recommendations are the major reason for discourse. Let's hope the City Council has common sense when they vote on this.
On Redeveloper buys former Kennedy Homes at auction for $400K
Does Gunnink have to use the 160 acres for farmland or can he do something else with it? Not sure on the zoning laws for this, anyone know?
On Is teacher attire adequate?
Sigma, I do see your point, but I don't agree. Call me old fashioned but as an adult I don't want to dress like the students so they feel comfortable with me. I want them to take learning seriously, become better educated and have fun during off hours. There are too many recent grads who have no respect for others. Dress code is just the beginning of what teaches us respect in early years. It may not be important to you as an adult, but it IS one of the examples important for teaching young people and one of the things we've lost along the way.
It has been my experience that how I dress sends an immediate message on how I think of myself and how I want people to treat me. A sweatshirt, pajama pants, slippers and a ponytail just say 'I don't care, I'm lazy but comfortable." Dress or busines casual clothing in good taste, neat and clean should be acceptable. Now, I don't have any problem with teachers dress when I see what the students are wearing! Oh my gosh, are there any parents monitoring their child's clothing?!!!!
