On Superintendent Schulte on her way to China again
I love how people seemed to have missed the last sentence in the article saying that the trip was privately financed. I think she needs to deal with stuff here before going on another trip. But at least I am not paying for it.
On Six candidates seek four Janesville City Council spots
Third_Eye - I got the Parody. I also got the irony in it. A clearly partisan person commenting on someone else's partisanship. Liberals have been divisive, but your comment proves that conservatives are just as divisive. That was the intent of my comment.
I am somewhat dismayed by Third_Eye's expression of what Sam Liebert expressed in his section of this article, A section that in no way used the terms democrat, republican, Liberal, Conservative or any other term that has caused divisiveness at every turn. YOU may think "evil liberals" when you read about Mr. Liebert, but the the article doesn't say it.
On Sixth Janesville City Council candidate announces
"Sam Liebert I remember was out at the bars downtown late at night getting signatures. There should be more to it than getting signatures."
I'm sure he's doing more than that. He knocked on my door the other night, looking for a signature.
Sad that Deb isn't running again. Maybe she got fed up with all the partisan bickering in a none partisan office.
On Steeber won't seek re-election
Kealy is not a "do nothing" or a nut. I don't agree with his politics, but I've met the guy several times and frequently grab a hot dog at his shop downtown. He's a decent guy. Also, please separate sentences with periods. I studied communications in college and still had a hard time understanding your comment.
Thanks for your time on the Council, Russ.
On City wants 21% water rate hike
Jocose-The Gazette releases only a summary of an article the morning it is released in the newspaper. This is done in an effort to get you to either buy a paper, or subscribe to the Electronic edition. Around 4PM, they remove the summary article and release the full article so people can read the full story. This practice in not done to censor anyone, but to encourage people to pay for the full version.
On Cullen: I-90/39 project on track
Didn't vote for Cullen, but kudos for keeping his constituents informed. I think a few people may have gotten a bit nervous when the article came out saying the project might be delayed. Keeping us in the loop is a big plus for me. Thank you Tim.
On Janesville City Council approves 2013 budget
Gunslinger - They didn't cut police officers. Police asked for one more full time officer, but the council decided not to add one to the payroll. The same amount of officers will be on duty than there was last year.
Godishere - I may be wrong, but doesn't the school board deal with teachers and the Teachers union? And the school board levies it's own taxes?
On Domestic partners must prove commitment, city council says
They were not considering decreasing the police force. They were talking about holding the level of Sworn officers to the same amount as this past year.
As for the cost of this measure, Healthcare costs are hard to predict because people could get married, have children, become critically ill. All of these are paid for by the cities healthcare coverage. No one complains that the healthcare coverage costs goes up because someone had a baby.
It might all be a mute point anyway. There may not be anyone currently who qualifies.
